Gordon and the G.C.P.D. investigate a new serial killer, the "Joker", who is killing victims and victims and leaving behind playing cards. The G.C.P.D. gets unexpected help from psychopath expert Jeremiah Arkham, who is the newly appointed head of Arkham Asylum. At the Narrows, an activist for the homeless people, a woman named Beatrice Bennett, pleads with Mayor Pollard to put city resources towards the homeless shelter only for Pollard to refuse since he wants to continue construction for the stadium and the parking lots. This results in the homeless becoming angry at the mayor. When Pollard is entering his limousine making plans to enter a race for governor, he gets abducted by the Joker's Daughter, who takes him to the sewers under the Narrows to torture him for not giving into Bennett's pleas. At a fancy restaurant, the rich and powerful are having dinner there discussing how pleased they are with Pollard's plan to turn the neighborhood into a central business district. A man in a hood stumbles into the building and the rich begin to act arrogant towards him. They become shocked when the hooded figure removes his hood, revealing himself to be Pollard strapped to a bomb. Pollard is revealed to be suffering from trauma due to the torture he endured. The G.C.P.D. arrives there, however, the club explodes killing everyone there. Dick investigates this carefully to discover that Pollard was abducted hours ago by the Joker's Daughter upon seeing the camera footage. The team later tracks the Joker's Daughter and she is revealed to be a woman named Duela, who believes that the Joker is her father. Mar Novu allows Bruce to return home to his family not before warning him that there will be changes to his reality. At the time same, Harvey Dent is released with a clean bill of mental health. In flash forwards, 2039, at a party on Friday night, Nelson Nash is the DJ for hat party and leads the crowd in a chant that would ultimately cause Terrence 'Terry' McGinnis to leave. While being pursued by the Jokerz (street punks enamored by the original Clown Prince of Crime), Terry gets help from the elderly Damian Wayne (Michael Keaton) and accidentally discovers Batman was his father Bruce. After Terry's father is murdered, Terry seeks Damian's help to avenge him upon finding out that Derek Powers, CEO of Powers Technology, may have had something to do with it.
2."All The King's Horses"-Bruce returns to his reality where he is faced with several changes: Superman has been protecting the world years before he became the Knight, Rachel Dawes is district attorney, and Lucius Fox is alive. Strange, life-sized toy army men have started appearing all over Gotham armed with real weapons! When Batman investigates, however, he discovers that they are not toys, but people trapped inside explosive shells. All the clues lead to a former mob accountant named Humphrey Dumpler (AKA Humpty Dumpty) who used to work for crime boss Martin Somers. Rachel called upon Dumpler months when Bruce was away with Novu to testify against him. Rachel promised to protect Dumpler but failed. Dumpler was badly injured in an attempt on his life. This attack caused Dumpler to lose his mind and swear vengeance. He escaped protective custody and began his vendetta. Bruce, Watson, Alicia, Dick, and Alfred, with assistance from Luke who is operating as a hacker under the code name Bat-Wing, to save her. Feeling upset that his revenge failed, Dumpty commits suicide by jumping off the castle where the action is taking place, to his death. Bruce recounts that during his time with Novu, he missed Rachel most of all and goes to speak to her to confess his feelings. Meanwhile, Harvey is trying to adjust to life outside of Arkham Asylum and tries to to talk to Rachel only to encounter Rachel's father Dudley Dawes, who tells Harvey to stay away from his daughter because of his time as Two-Face. Rachel returns Bruce's affections and the two make love while Harvey and Dudley are watching everything from outside Rachel's window before leaving. In flash forwards, Terry steals the Batsuit to pursue Powers, who is secretly using the company's resources to develop a biological weapon. Damian, discovering the theft, deactivates the suit, but when seeing the now-helpless Terry being punched out reactivates it so he can continue pursuing Fixx, and in the end Damian appears at Terry's house to hire him as a "special assistant".
3."Two Faces"-Alicia becomes paranoid upon learning that Harvey has been released from Arkham Asylum only for Bruce to remind Rachel of all the times that Harvey has been there for them before he became Two-Face which prompts Alicia to try to give him another chance. Meanwhile, the G.C.P.D. is attacked by Two-Face injuring several officers, including Watson. Bruce and the team suspect that Dent has become Two-Face again since the security footage caught him attacking the officers. Eventually, they discover that Harvey has been captured and impersonated by actor Matt Hagen. In flashbacks, Hagen was a nerdy, unattractive, and untalented actor. Hagen was seen repeatedly turned down in auditions for a dog food commercial when he heard that Basil Karlos was about to be cured. Hagen then breaks into Wayne Enterprises to consume a purified version of the formula that Hugo Strange used on Karlos years ago, which makes him have shape-shifting powers. Hagen assumes a handsome form, and believes that his rejection is the result of his poor appearance, but ended rejected once again for a dog-food commercial thanks to his lousy acting. Hagen then kills the people who reject him. Upon seeing all the publicity that Harvey has gotten during his time as Two-Face, Hagen became inspired to be a criminal like him to get rich. Back to the present,Bruce, Luke, and Lucius make an antidote for Hagen. During the fight with Clay-Face when rescuing Harvey, they are almost killed until Harvey injects the antidote into Hagen, curing him. Later, Alicia decides to trust Harvey again after his name is cleared and offers him a job as COO of her company. Harvey humbly refuses since he needs to redeem himself on his own, which Alicia accepts. Rachel tells Bruce she is pregnant with their child which is why she decides to retire from the field.
4."Son of Batman"-At the headquarters of the Society of Shadows, Ra's al Ghul grooms Damian Wayne (son of his daughter, Talia, and Batman) to succeed him as head of the league. The society is attacked by a group of assassins led by Wade DeForge, a former member that was removed from the League by Ra's because of his methods. During the battle, Ra's is defeated and fatally burned, dying before he can reach the Lazarus Pit. Damian stabs Wade's right eye during the battle, forcing him to flee. Talia takes Damian to Gotham City to meet his father and ask for his protection. In Gotham City, Batman confronts Killer Croc, who is stealing mutagenic chemicals and steroids to enhance himself. Batman gets ambushed by Croc before Talia electrocutes the latter from behind. She tells Batman about her father's death and how she raped him when they were imprisoned at Slabside which resulted in them having a son named Damian. Damian is then left in Bruce's care, though Damian believes that he can take care of himself and does not need Batman. Wade, wearing the suit that belonged to Slade Wilson, captures Dr. Kirk Langstrom, who conspired with both Croc and Ra's, promising the latter a formula for his soldiers. Slade threatens Langstrom's wife Francine and his daughter Rebecca to force him to recreate the Man-Bat formula for him. Damian bypasses Wayne Towers security to speak to Bruce, telling him that Wade's contact Ubu is stationed in Gotham. Although Damian wants to avenge Ra's al Ghul by killing Wade, Bruce objects to Damian's willingness to take lives only for Damian to tell Bruce that he knows he was once a killer. Talia is captured by Wade when she and her assassins attack his compound. In flashbacks, Damian reunites with his mother. However, Damian and Terry discover a dark secret: years ago, Ra's sacrificed Talia by using a computer to imprint his thoughts and memories into Talia's body, erasing her consciousness and replacing it with his own. After improving the computer, Ra's al Ghul decides that it is time to move into a new body: Damian's. Fortunately, Terry intervenes as Batman making that not happen and Damian leaves his grandfather to die in the explosion.
5."Heroes of The Future"-In flash forwards, Terry and Damian return to Gotham City. When Terry is patrolling Gotham as Batman, he learns about a group of metahuman heroes endorsed by Alicia, CEO of Wayne Enterprises. After being exposed to high levels of radiation during a particle fusion experiment, Dr. Mike Morgan, Dr. Mary Michaels, and Dr. Stuart Lowe underwent dramatic genetic changes. The accident altered their DNA and bestowed them with superpowers, so the three decided to use their abilities for good. Dr. Hodges analyzes a DNA sample from the Trio and found that their condition was worsening. He informs Norman of this, and Norman jumps at the chance to attack the Trio tower and kill the Trio solely because Hodges had claimed that there was a slight possibility that it would affect their minds as well. Terry escapes and he as well as Damian meet with Alicia, who is revealed to still be running Wayne Enterprises. Alicia is revealed to have come to tell them at Rachel is dead. In the present, against Batman's orders, Damian leaves the Batcave and, after a chase and a long fight, defeats Ubu, whom he located by accessing the Bat-Computer. Before Damian can kill him, Dick arrives, mistakes him for a criminal and subdues him before bringing him back to the Batcave. Bruce berates Damian for his recklessness, willingness to kill and exposing their operation. Batman then has Damian don the mantle of Robin to teach him discipline.
6."Natural Selection"-Searching for a lead on Langstrom's location, Batman goes to Arkham to interrogate a rabid Killer Croc, who supplied the mutagens to Langstrom in exchange for his enhancements and is currently going through drastic, agonizing withdrawal symptoms that cause him to shed his scales and tail. Since others are too afraid of him to medicate him without being harmed, Batman promises Croc help in exchange for information. Batman follows Croc's lead about the formula's mutagen to Langstrom's apartment, where he finds a throwing star that he takes evidence of Wade's involvement. Before he leaves, he goes throughout the building and finds a storage room filled with caged bats, with one larger cage being empty and broken open from inside. Batman then finds a rabid gorilla with bat-like mutations, one of Langstrom's unstable subjects, and it attacks him until it dies from its mutations. A drone aircraft sent by Wade then flies past and crashes on the building, destroying it, though Batman evades the explosion. Commissioner Gordon warns them about an abandoned stadium believed to house Wade's men. At the stadium, Batman and Damian question Langstrom but are attacked when Damian becomes violent. Before they successfully escape, they fight off a swarm of Man-Bats. In the cave, Langstrom reveals Wade's plan to create superhuman, flight-capable assassins. In flash forwards, Terry, Damian, Alicia, and Beth track down a cage fighter named Mad Dog, who Rachel last saw before she died. Everyone discovers that Mad Dog is a woman named Helena, a rookie officer in the G.C.P.D. who has had enough of vigilantes. Helena denies knowing what Rachel's plans were.
7."Survival of The Fittest"-Dick learns that Wade is operating in an oil rig off the Scottish coast, and when Bruce is distracted, Damian goes to the rig. He finds Wade and Talia in an underwater base with a swarm of Man-Bats and another Lazarus Pit, whose fluid Wade intends to sell. Damian pulls a gun on Wade, who holds one against Talia's head until Damian drops his gun. Wade fires at him, but Talia is hit instead after she jumps in the path of Wade's gunfire. As Wade corners Damian, Batman appears and the Man-Bats attack. Batman wards them off with sonar-emitting batarangs, while Wade flees with Damian giving chase. Bruce heals Talia in the Lazarus Pit, while Nightwing and Langstrom reach the oil rig and cure the Man-Bats. At the same time, Damian fights and defeats Wade, but refuses to kill him because he is his father's son. The elevator from the rig to the underwater base is destroyed when the Man-Bats, overwhelmed by the sonar devices, overcrowd the glass elevator shaft, flooding the base. Batman, Talia and Damian escape, but Wade gets left behind. Batman believes that Damian should stay with him and remain as Robin while Talia still wishes to recreate the League with Batman, who would rather disband the League, and Damian at her side. She decides to let him care for their son and leaves with the Society of Shadows though she says she will return for him. In flash forwards, Terry, Damian, Alicia, and Beth encounter Talia in Ra's body, who barely has time to live. Before she dies, she informs from old age, she gives them plans to destroy Gotham City. Talia is unable to tell the team whose plans they are, but tells them to find Adrian Chase before she dies.
8."Conviction"-An mischievous imp Mister Mxyzptlk invades Gotham, which is already in fear from another deadly trickster who is still on the run. Bruce and the team run into Mxyzptlk and has to deal with him. However, Mzyzptlk is not so easy to stop and when he creates clones of Hush, Theo Galavan, Ra's al Ghul, and William Dent. The team is in trouble until Kara Danvers and James Olsen arrive to assist them. Kara tells Bruce that to defeat Mxyzptlk, they have to trick him into spelling his name backwards. When Mxyzptlk tries to irritate Bruce again, Bruce activates a self-destruct sequence in his cave. Mxyzptlk begs for the code to stop the countdown but, after inputting the code, realizes that it spells his name backwards, vanquishing him. Meanwhile, Watson is released from the hospital and tries to adjust to the changes around him. Eventually, he decides to retire from the team to be a full-time consultant at S.P.Y.R.A.L. In the flash forwards, Alicia confronts Adrian, who is now the Mayor of the Narrows and involved in sponsoring a project to build infiltration units calling themselves Zeta. Later, Adrian meets with Powers, who is linked to the bomb plans, explicitly stating that their plans to build up the Narrows will sacrifice the rest of the city.
9."Having My Baby"-Peter Yorke (Ryan Jefferson Booth) is revealed to be alive in this reality and killing vigilantes such as Virago. Virago was a relatively new hero to the Philadelphia area. She focused on stopping small crimes, mostly muggings and petty vandalism. Never the less, this activity was sufficient to attract the attention of Yorke. Yorke shoots Virago with a tranquilizer dart while she is on patrol and watches as she fell several stories down to her death. Mar Novu then reveals to Yorke that Bruce is Batman prompting Yorke to go after him in revenge. As the team goes looking for Yorke, Bruce, Alfred, Alicia, Gordon, Dick, Dudley, and Rachel go to the hospital when Rachel is about to give birth. Yorke goes to the hospital where he kills several doctors in the operating room, and after his attempt to kill Rachel is foiled by the team. Alfred shoots Yorke with six bullets; two to one shoulder with one fatally pierced through his left side of his chest, one bullet from Gordon in between the first and middle knuckles of his right hand, one through his right foot, one through the palm of his right hand–none of which slows him or even impaired his manual dexterity. Bruce attacks Yorke and is tempted to kill him, but ultimately decides to spare him not before using a knife to cut his hand off. As Yorke is taken into custody, Rachel gives birth to a girl. In flash forwards, Mad Dog and her friend Cisco Blaine find the Batcave. Terry fights them until Damian, Alicia, and Beth arrive to break it up. Damian and Alicia reveal that she is Helena Dawes, the daughter of Bruce and Rachel, Alicia's niece, and Damian's half-sister.
10."Mad Love"-Mayor Gordon goes in for a dental appointment, only to find the Joker in the place of his dentist. Harley Quinn ties him to the chair, and just as Joker is about to kill the Mayor, Batman crashes in. He tosses a pair of chattering teeth to the floor with disdain, and tells the Joker that the clue was poorly done. Harley interrupts Batman's bashing and claims credit for the idea, then stuns Batman with a spray of gas. She tosses out a pun about it, much to the Joker's outrage. As they make their escape, Joker tosses a grenade into Gordon's lap, but Batman hurls it out the window in the nick of time. Gordon, having already hated going to the dentist regardless of whether it was mandatory for the medical plan of the police department, reaffirmed his displeasure of going there from the near-death experience. In the Funnibones warehouse, Joker is poring over various plans to kill Batman (in an appropriately humiliating yet comedic manner). He is so obsessive that he fails to notice Harley prancing around behind him in an alluring negligee, and when she announces herself, he irritably orders her away. Joker laments that his trap at the dentist's office was, indeed too easy and he must try harder to come up with the "perfect" means of defeating Batman. Harley asks what if Joker simply shot him. The idea of murdering his archenemy in such a mundane manner enrages him, as it must represent his comic genius in any way possible. Then Joker notices one of his old blueprints and becomes excited at his plan for "The Death of A Hundred Smiles" — lowering Batman into a piranha tank to be devoured — but then remembers why he dropped it: he couldn't make the piranhas smile, defeating the whole theme. As he slumps in dejection, Harley resumes her advances—to which the Joker responds by kicking her through the door into a pile of garbage, near Bud and Lou. Alone, Harley bemoans the sorry state of her life: whatever career she had as a legitimate psychiatrist is long gone, she's a wanted fugitive all over the country, and hopelessly infatuated with a psychopath who treats her like dirt. She starts to wonder where things went wrong for her... but her thoughts quickly swerve away from putting any blame on her beloved "puddin'", and instead she concludes that Batman is the one who has always persecuted her happiness, as he has "from the very beginning..". Some years ago, Officer Harleen Quinzel was a young guard at Arkham Asylum. She met the Joker (who gave her a sly wink) on her very first day of work, and he immediately began to work his charms on her by leaving a rose on her office desk. Harleen confronted him later and threatened to turn him in for breaking out of his cell, but Joker waved her off, saying that she would have already done it had she really meant to. He teased her by saying he liked her name, which could easily be tweaked into "Harley Quinn," a spin on the word "Harlequin." Harleen was not amused, and walked away coldly, but then Joker said he would be willing to confide in her his secrets which got her interested. Joker confessed to having a traumatic childhood, with an alcoholic father who frequently beat him for no apparent reason. The Joker said that all he wanted to do in life was to make people laugh, and when he told her about some of his early routines, she found herself laughing helplessly with him—and then crying as he then said how his father responded to his jokes with more beatings. But, he shrugged, that's one of the inescapable truths of comedy: "You always take shots from folks who just don't get the joke". In a way, he mused, his father and Batman were a lot alike: their problem was, they just didn't "get" him. Harley became increasingly sympathetic to the patient, believing that his traumatic childhood had driven him to a life of crime, while Batman's continued persecution only prolonged his misery. Soon, Quinzel and her patient switched roles: she started to confide in him, and he reacted with understanding, explaining how, in her ambitious drive to make a success of her career, she had somehow forgotten how to have fun, and was needy for someone who could make her laugh. There was no question that now Quinzel had fallen head-over-heels in love with the patient. Shortly after his latest escape from Arkham, Joker was recaptured and brought back by Batman, badly injured. The sight of her beloved, swathed in bandages, sent Quinzel over the edge. She stole a harlequin costume and various trick gags from a novelty store, then sneaked back into Arkham, neutralized the guards and broke the Joker free. Dubbing herself Harley Quinn, she embraced a life of crime with her newfound love. Harley decides that as long as Batman is around, she and Joker can never be happy, so she takes matters into her own hands. She sends a videotaped message to City Hall, warning them that Joker has gone totally crazy and is preparing a gas bomb that could kill the entire city. Telling the police that she has finally come to her senses, she promises to help them stop the plan, if they can protect her. Batman meets her at the docks, where she delivers a set of papers that seem to confirm the Joker's heinous plan. As Batman examines them, the Joker appears on a boat speeding towards the pier, calling Harley a traitor and opening fire with a submachine gun. Batman dives on top of Harley to protect her and hurls a batarang at the Joker, which cuts his head clean off. Batman looks again and sees that he's actually decapitated a robotic dummy, but his moment of shock is all Harley needs to inject him from behind with a sedative. Batman wakes up to find himself chained from head to toe, relieved of his utility belt, and hanging upside down over a piranha tank inside the empty Aquacade aquarium. Harley explains that the story about the gas bomb was a fake: her real goal is to finish him off, using one of her beloved's plans. All it needed, she realized, was to have Batman upside down when he was lowered in, thus making the piranhas' downturned mouths look like smiles. As Harley prepares to finish Batman off, she admits to some small regrets, since she's really enjoyed some of their escapades. But, in the end, all she wants to do is get Batman out of their lives so she and her "loving sweetheart" can settle down. Hearing this, Batman, incredibly, begins laughing derisively. Unsettled by the fact that Batman never laughs, Harley tells him to stop. Batman then lashes out at her with scorn, telling her that the Joker loves no one other than himself, and had her pegged for hired help the minute she walked into Arkham. Angrily, Harley rebuts that Joker trusts her, and that he confided secrets to her... to which Batman responds that those "secrets" are just sob stories he's told many times before, and to many other people in order to gain sympathy. Harley is severely shaken, but screams through her tears that Joker does love her, and killing Batman will win him back. Without further ado, she starts to lower him in, but Batman points out that Joker won't believe her, since the piranhas will leave no proof, only tiny scraps of flesh, bone, and cloth. She glances at his utility belt, but he reminds her that even the belt, without a body, won't be enough to convince Joker. Nervously, Harley ponders her next move... Back at the Funnibones warehouse, Joker is still poring over his plan ideas, while the phone is ringing incessantly. Fed up, he grabs the phone, and hears Harley's voice on the other line. But when he hears what she has done, Joker is livid at being upstaged and speeds to the Aquacade in his car. On his arrival, Harley runs lovingly toward him... only for him to strike her viciously to the ground. Confused, she asks what is wrong, and he says that only he can be allowed to kill Batman. Harley starts to explain that it is his plan she is using, only she has improved it, only to have Joker snatch the blueprints away and rip them to shreds. He rants that any joke that has to be explained to the audience is no joke at all. Menacingly, he advances on Harley, counting her as just one more person of the many he's had to cope with, who "don't get the joke"—and knocks her out the window, causing her to plunge several stories down into a garbage heap. Gordon and the G.C.P.D. find her. Lying bruised but alive, Harley mumbles that it was her fault for not getting the joke. Joker promptly swings Batman out from over the tank and lowers him to the table, while apologizing for Harley's impetuosity. He cheerfully proposes that they forget the whole fiasco occurred and take a rain check for their next confrontation. He starts to walk away, whistling, but then realizes that Harley has given him an opportunity too good to miss after all, and he'll go ahead and kill Batman himself. He flips the still-chained Batman onto his back and takes aim at his forehead with a gun. Just as he pulls the trigger, however, Batman kicks the gun upward, so the shot shatters the piranha tank, releasing a flood of piranha-filled water that knocks Joker down. As Joker thrashes around, trying to pull off the piranhas nipping at his flesh, Batman flips to his feet, grabs his utility belt with his teeth, and manages to extract a lock pick and release his chains. Joker makes a hasty retreat, and Batman dashes after him. The Joker jumps out of the building, falling on the top of a moving train. Batman catches up with him and confides that Harley actually came very close to killing him—much closer than the Joker ever has, in fact—and that his only way out was to trick her into calling him, knowing his ego would get in the way of Harley's objective. Batman then teases the Joker by calling him "Puddin'" — Harley's pet name that he so loathes. Joker goes berserk and launches himself at Batman, leading to a brutal fistfight between the two. As the Joker finally pulls out a knife, Batman delivers such a fierce uppercut that it sends Joker flying off the train and falling, screaming, down a smokestack. Batman stands silently on the roof of the train, knowing all too well the Joker will be back. Later, Rachel convinces Bruce that they should do into hiding so that their daughter can have a normal life. Bruce agrees to it which is why Watson and his uncle General Stewart give them one of the safe houses used by the Department of Intelligence. An injured Harley is wheeled to her cell, vowing internally to turn over a new leaf and leave the craziness behind her, finally seeing the Joker as the murderous psychopath he really is... but then she sees a flower and a get-well card signed "J". sitting on her nightstand, and that is all it takes to change her mind.
11."Meltdown"-In flash forwards, Derek Powers orders Dr. Stephanie Lake to build a new body for Victor Fries, the criminal known as Mr. Freeze, in the hope that that the similar treatment would cure Powers' condition as Blight. Seemingly cured of his need for extreme cold, Fries tries to redeem himself, but neither Damian nor his former victims trust him. Terry and Helena seek to help Fries in redemption only for it to be too late when Powers tries to kill Fries in an attempt to biopsy his organs when the treatment on Fries no longer is in effect. Terry and Helena go to stop Fries from killing anyone but Powers turns into Blight to attack them. Helena becomes shocked seeing Cisco Blaine as Powers' henchman and ambushes him about it.

Ferris is seen being held at gunpoint by Penguin and his henchmen, who have betrayed Freeze and want the weapons promised by him. When the team intervenes in costume, Freeze uses the distraction to freeze Penguinand his men. Freeze then uses Ferris to enter the restricted area where a frozen woman from 1942 named Nora is kept. Boyle refuses to to give up the code to release Nora to Freeze. Dick enters the room and Freeze locks Boyle inside a cryogenic chamber. Bruce defeats Freeze and frees Boyle, who promptly reveals his true colors and releases cryo gas on Bruce, freezing him. Believing him dead, Boyle then begins to beat Freeze with a piece from his own suit. Before Boyle can finish, Watson knocks him unconscious. Afterward, the G.C.P.D. picks up Freeze, and because of his condition, they put him in Arkham. Boyle is charged for assault, kidnapping, and unlawful possession of weapons. As it turns out, Boyle made a deal with Freeze to create cryogenic technology (mostly weapons) for his company, and in exchange, Boyle would devote his resources to finding a cure for his condition. Freeze eventually decided to betray Boyle knowing Boyle would not honor his deal.
