"You Don't Have to Go Home, But You Can't Stay Here"Edit
Catwoman steals a statuette from a Gotham exhibit entitled “Murnau, The Art of the Cat” and leads Batman on a merry chase before finally giving up on the roof of a hotel. Selina asks Batman if he remembers what was there before the hotel was built; an abandoned tenement building that the Gotham police exploded in hopes of trying to kill Batman during his first year. Batman asks why she would bring that up and Selina replies that she was there that night and that when she saw him escape the building and the police, she was inspired to know what the adrenaline rush felt like. Selina continues by telling the Dark Knight she is leaving Gotham for San Paolo “tomorrow night” and wants Batman to join her so they both can find out “who we are away from this city”. At a Wayne Foundation benefit, Gotham’s mayor is shown still visibly shaken by his encounter with the Scarecrow, while detectives Marchak and Belivell are not allowed in to see his honor. Angered, Belivell tells Marchak the mayor has hired a professional to take down Catwoman, Deathstroke, the Terminator. After leaving Batman, Selina is shot and wounded by Deathstroke before the bounty hunter explodes a gas truck in Gotham’s streets that seems to finish Catwoman once and for all. As news reports broadcast the unconfirmed death of Catwoman in the explosion, a homeless man named Homer shows a homeless lady named Sadie what he found in his day’s scavenging: the battered body of an injured and unconscious Catwoman.
