At Gordon's apartment, Cobblepot states that the upcoming war will be for Arkham. Meanwhile, Councilman Ron Jenkins is approached by a hitman (Hakeem Kae-Kazim) who uses a telescope device with a blade in it on his aide and then kills the councilman with the same device. Gordon learns of the Arkham Plan when he visits Bruce Wayne, where Alfred mentions that Falcone and Mayor James are backing the project. Maroni's ally, Councilman Zeller, has been abducted by the same hitman who killed Jenkins and is burned alive at Arkham Asylum. Gordon tells Bullock and Essen that the Arkham District is a battleground between Falcone and Maroni. Upon visiting a prisoner who knows the hitman, Gordon and Bullock look for Richard Gladwell at an office building. As Gordon heads to the back, Gladwell works on his steel spike. Before Gordon could take action, Bullock calls him away to show him the files on Jenkins and Zeller, enabling Gladwell to flee. They find a paper that reads C.L.M. After an attack on Maroni's restaurant by three masked men, Cobblepot is promoted to restaurant manager by Maroni, following his action of saving the money and the death of the previous manager. It was discovered by Bullock that the real Gladwell was dead for five years and that the hitman was using his name. Gordon tells Bullock that they must find the hitman before the mob war erupts. Upon Gordon figuring out that Mayor James will be the next target, he goes to protect the Mayor. Gordon ends up in a fight with the hitman until Bullock arrives to back him up. The hitman is then gunned down by Bullock and Gordon before he can finish his job. Meanwhile, Mooney pairs up two possible females for her nightclub job opening against each other where a female named Liza wins. Mayor James holds a press conference about the Arkham Plan. Falcone will handle small housing developments and Maroni will be refurbishing the Arkham Asylum. The three masked guys that attacked Maroni's restaurant were working for Cobblepot, as they are killed by his poisoned canoli.
