An Officer approaches Gordon with a gruesome and unsolved homicide that wasn’t able to be closed by the other Detectives, telling him that officers are wanting to join him in cleaning up Gotham. Gordon’s partner, Harvey Bullock, is less than thrilled to look into the case.
While investigating the homicide, Gordon and Bullock manage to find the bar where the victim was last seen and who she was with.

Bullock tells Gordon that the murder abducts young, pretty women and keeps them for long periods of time.
