Batman and Krol escape, using a service tunnel to get out.

They make it just by the skin of their teeth, allowing them to get to the Gotham river. Krol is picked up by Gordon and the GCPD. Krol is dumbfounded and awestruck by Batman after his experience.

Batman, meanwhile, has used up all his strength, but needs to rest for a bit before going home. However, Trogg, Bird, and Zombie are waiting.

Trogg’s wristbands are dopey, but I really like Zombie and Bird’s looks.

At an unspecified police precinct, The Ventriloquist kills the guard at the evidence lockup and takes back Scarface.

On a roof, Bird, Trogg, and Zombie attack Batman, and Batman manages to take them out one by one, before getting into the Batmobile and returning home… only to find Alfred unconscious, and Bane waiting.
