Comer is the sixteenth episode of The Young Knight season one.
- Int. Background
(Cuts to a black background then we hear Bruce)
Bruce’s Voice: “Previously on the Knight…”
(We go back to the first episode as we see Bruce looking at the picture of his parents on top the fireplace in Wayne Manor; then the camera flashes quickly from the portrait to a mysterious gun shooting at his parents on the day of their death and flashes quickly to the tombstone of his parents name THOMAS and MARTHA. Then we see in “Extraordinary” a gun fires shooting at Bruce; Ken heals him; and then we head to a scene with Bruce and Alfred as Bruce telling him that we he was on the brink of death he saw his parents and told him that they said to watch out; flashes then to the last scene of “Avalon” as we see Bruce and Victor touching the blue crystal as all of suddenly the crystal glows brightly and blasts both of them to opposite sides and flashes a white ominous light; then we quickly flash to the funeral scene in “Perdition” as we see the funeral of Victor Powers and then to the part as everyone realize when they open the casket to think a bomb is in there…nothing is in there not even Victor’s body. Cuts to a scene as we hear Jason telling Bradson that his father after seeing the fake death certificate is still alive somewhere; cuts to a motel scene on the outskirts of Gotham as we see a rugged man looking exactly like Victor telling the motel owner that he don’t know who he is and wants to start a new life; flashes quickly to a scene as we see Jason telling a man that it will do at nothing to find his father and then another scene with Agent Cutter making a proposition about something; then several close up shots of Leslie Thompskins, Gina Faust, Leo, Julie, Lucius Fox, Mr. Bryant and Alfred…and then the last scenes as we see are Bruce and Julie kissing in “Gossip”; John Henry Irons dressing up as steel-like costumed vigilante in “Friend”; Jason looking at some sort of a map in “Extraordinary”; Bruce and Gina kissing in “Hunter”; Leo going undercover as a thug in “Missing”; and then the last very scene as we see Bruce and Dr. Ken Bronsan discussing about each other’s future in “Extraordinary”)
(Then we cut to a black background again as we start the episode)
- Ext. Wayne Manor
(Cuts to the manor as we also notice a remarkable sunrise turning into morning)
- Int. Kitchen – Breakfast Table
(Cuts inside to a kitchen as we see Alfred entering noticing a interesting aroma and then smell as it’s the smell of pancakes, eggs, bacon, toast, waffles, berry yogurt, and fresh-squeezed orange juice)
(As Alfred approaches to the surprised breakfast prepared already, he suddenly sees Bruce with a plate and a glass of orange juice while reading the morning’s newspaper)
Alfred: (Shocked) Master Bruce!? I didn’t…I never knew… quite frankly, sir, I’m shock; no I’m beyond shock. (Still confused about the breakfast)
Bruce: Happy that someone else did breakfast other than you?
Alfred: No, not really. The last time a person tried to fix breakfast without me knowing was your mother.
Bruce: Guess we think alike.
Alfred: You’re definitely have your mother’s spirit and as well your father’s persistence.
Bruce: (Smiling while taking a bite off his plate) Why thank you! Come get some.
Alfred: I really don’t want to sir…
Bruce: Come on Al, at least try a taste of what I made. If you like it, I fix breakfast for the whole next week.
Alfred: What if I don’t…
Bruce: Well that’s what you, a well respected and deserved butler, do at your best.
Alfred: (Noticing the small smirk complement) Oh, why thank you Master Bruce. (Smiling and then getting a plate of his own)
(While Alfred is away to the counter getting his plate, we see Bruce smiling after what he told Alfred about; and he then continues eating his food while returning back to read the newspaper; then out of nowhere he hears his father’s voice…)
Bruce: (Hearing the voice; sounding like his father) Dad?!
(Bruce sees Alfred, but he is continuing fixing his food and then Bruce looks back at the newspaper; however, he continues to hear the voice)
Bruce: (Hearing the voice a second time; its then starts messing with his mind) Hello!?
Alfred: (Approaching to the table where Bruce is with his plate of food noticing Bruce) Master Bruce, you’re okay?
Bruce: (Hearing nothing back, he then hears what Alfred had to said) Oh…it’s nothing. It might be the food…
Alfred: Which you did made by the way. (Smiling)
Bruce: (Noticing the snarky comment back) Oh that’s funny. (Smiling while shaking his head all in fun)
(As we see Alfred smiling and heading back to his plate of food, Bruce about to get back to what he was doing and he then sees some sort of figure behind Alfred in the next room; the camera sees the man figure in the next room by the view of Alfred’s left shoulder and then we see its Thomas Wayne)
Bruce: (Seeing the man who look just his father) Dad?!
Alfred: (Seeing Bruce stunned about something as he is looking at something) Are you sure you’re okay, Master Bruce?
Bruce: (Noticing what looks like to be an apparition of his father, he then responds to Alfred’s concern) No Alfred, I’m fine.
Alfred: Good then; (getting a taste of the pancakes that Bruce made) very fluffy and (twirking his fingers) very textury.
Bruce: Textury? What that’s supposed to mean?
Alfred: I don’t know, but I like how I say it. (Smiling and heading back to his food)
Bruce: (As he finishes talking to Alfred he then notices the figure or apparition of what it surely been his father suddenly vanishes; as he continues to look at the area where he thought he saw his father, he continues to be stunned about what just happened the voices and the figure; all trying to figure out what is going on)
(Cuts to a very stunned and much pondered Bruce)
- Ext. Corporate Building
(Cuts to a view of a cooperate building then inside)
- Int. Lobby
(Cuts inside the building's lobby as we see a desk at the center, with the blonde receptionist working on her computer, and on the wall is a logo: 'Standford-Ruben Linguistics')
(Shifts to Jason entering and approaching to the desk)
Jason: Excuse me, I was noticing does this building execute linguistic-like software.
Receptionist: Yes we do.
Jason: Are you sure?
Receptionist: I'm positive. (Giving him a brochure) Our company was made twenty-four years ago and our CEO's Mr. Standford and Mr. Ruben both were highly educated into the field and both decided that the youth of Gotham needs the sounds of language.
(Jason was looking through the brochure as she was talking, and he continues to do it as she is still talking)
Receptionist: Our Company has a reason to give what the people want.
Jason: (After reading the brochure) I'm impressed. This takes a lot of bull to make this stuff up.
Receptionist: Excuse me?!
Jason: I like to meet Mr. Standford and Mr. Ruben; that's the main reason why I came.
Receptionist: If you thinking we are making this stuff up; go and check our website. It has the same information like the brochure and more if you think this stuff is bull.
Jason: I believe it is bull and until I find out the true reason; tell your two bosses, Jason Powers will be back. (After that, he walks out)
(The receptionist looks at him stunned knowing he said his full name and is walking out; she alerts someone on the phone)
- Ext. Corporate Building - Outside
(Cuts outside as we see Jason still carrying the brochure, and he notices the title of the company; and grabs a pen to shift and change the meaning of the title: from 'Standford-Ruben Linguistics' he scratches out ndford and uben and as well ngustics--and the camera views the scratching; and then the aftermath: we see only Sta R and Li; feeling suspicious he adds x to the end and then we know Standford-Ruben Linguistics is Starlix)
Jason: (Feeling greatly suspicious about the stunning reveal)
(Cuts off to Jason)
- Ext. Wayne Manor
(Cuts to another view of the manor)
- Int. Trophy Room
(Cuts to the room where Bruce is standing in the center looking around the room as we see several dossiers with trophies and silver silverware; and he then notices this is the same room he saw the man he think was his father since this is the same room that is next to breakfast table in the kitchen)
(Bruce continues to look around and realizing he hasn’t been in this room since he was seven and then out of nowhere he sees his father’s apparition)
Figure: (Who the camera takes a close up view and it is some sort of ghost-like figure of Bruce’s dead father, Thomas Wayne) Bruce…Bruce…
Bruce: It’s me this is Bruce; what is going on.
Thomas (Ghost): Bruce, you need to watch out.
Bruce: Watch out for myself?! What are you talking about?
Thomas (Ghost): What are you talking about watching out for yourself?
Bruce: That’s what you mean. Right?
Thomas (Ghost): (Shaking his head in disagreement) No, it’s not you that you need to watch out for…
Bruce: Well not me; what then?
Thomas (Ghost): The crystal.
Thomas (Ghost): It’s hard to explain, but the blue crystal is what you really need to watch out for my son because soon the potential damage this crystal can cause; it will destroy the city. Victor failed to understand my knowledge and Project Avalon….
Bruce: I know about the project and I found out Victor tried to revived it again months ago, but the crystal…
Thomas (Ghost): What is it? You touched the crystal?
Bruce: I did...
(Then we flash quickly to a flashback in “Avalon” as we see, we see Bruce and Victor touching the blue crystal at both of the two endpoints as all of suddenly the crystal glows brightly and blasts both of them to opposite sides and flashes a white ominous light; then we flashes back to present day)
Bruce: I remembered; I touched the crystal as well Victor and then all of sudden everything went blank and I woke up three weeks after what just happened.
Thomas (Ghost): Wait, you woke up three weeks after you touched the crystal.
Bruce: I did; somehow it caused me having a short-coma, yet I just thought about it. The crystal may have done something to Victor as well because he was the one who did touched as well. I got to find him.
Thomas (Ghost): No son.
Bruce: (Stopping strangely) Wait, what you mean no. I know you two aren’t the best of friends but he is out there in the world heaven knows if he remembered what happened.
Thomas (Ghost): Leave him be; the crystal’s powers brought Victor something he never thought he had a new lease on life.
Bruce: Wait, my father…my real father would never leave a helping man down.
Thomas (Ghost): Victor Powers is no ordinary helping man.
Bruce: Well I’m sorry; you’re not alive, so I’m going to seek him.
Thomas (Ghost): Son! No means no. A man needs to pick his battles.
Bruce: I’m not a man yet, but it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t forget the battles.
(Alfred walking in the room seeing Bruce)
Alfred: Master Bruce, feel chilly?
Bruce: Excuse me?!
Alfred: You been talking to yourself, I felt you must be cold since this room is damp.
(Bruce sees the room any only sees Alfred and himself in the room; the apparition of his father suddenly disappears)
Bruce: (Suddenly feel weird what just happened and figure if that was real or he was dreaming about his father)
Alfred: (Seeing Bruce in some sort of distress, he then talks to himself quietly) I feel so helpless.

(Cuts to a mysterious building that looks very similar to a warehouse)
- Int. Lab
(Cuts inside to a unknown secret research lab as we surprisingly see Lucius going undercover as a undercover scientist reluctantly helping the other scientists working some sort of blue crystal—unknowingly to Lucius, this is the same crystal that Victor used to power Project Avalon and the last time we saw it was when we saw Victor and Bruce at the alpine warehouse)

(They shake hands and then the female scientist ponders about his history in the lab)
Dr. Luneburg: I haven’t heard about you, nor I never seen you in the lab with the others.
Louis (Lucius): I just been recruited two weeks ago; I was getting the training and luckily I pass and here we are. (Smiling)
(The camera view another female opening a swinging door)
Dr. Luneburg: (Smiling back, she then sees the woman) Listen doctor, I have to go, but I assure we will help each other in the near future.
Louis (Lucius): I hope so too.
(Dr. Luneburg seeing the scientist again and then walks to the other female waiting for her and then they wander off)
Lucius: (Still undercover, he tries to remember what is his original task and then he heads back inside the lab)

(Cuts to Leo's room as we see him typing something on the computer and we then see Jason appearing)
Leo: (Seeing him in much of surprise) Whoa! Jase, what are you doing here?
Jason: (Replying back) Sorry for the inclusion but Bruce told me if I ever need to find some quick research about, I can get to you.
Jason: Yeah, you're like a human Google.
Jason: (Understanding what he just said to Leo) Okay, I need you to look up a place for me.
Leo: Sure, anything for a friend. (The camera sees Leo's computer screen as we see the mouse cursor pulling out of what Leo is doing and then search for the place Jason is inspired) Alright what is it?
Jason: Can you find a Standford-Ruben Linguistics website for me. (Giving Leo the brochure he found at the building)
Leo: (Receiving it) Okay; it'll be a mere five second span.
(After five seconds, there is nothing on the linguistics place)
Leo: As far as I can see, there is no reference of a Standford-Ruben Linguistic website.
Leo: (Checking it again) Promise.
Jason: Thanks! (Grabs the brochure back and leaves while pondering about the place)
Leo: Yeah maybe one day I could... (Seeing him gone) ...visit your place. (Wondering)
(Cuts off to Leo)
[Act I ends]
- Ext. Street – Rave
(Cuts to a street near Rave as we see Bruce walking to it)
(As Bruce continues to walk he suddenly sees his father’s apparition again and as Bruce tries to get a closer view, the figure disappears; Bruce gets confused and wonders the only place that might has the answers is the cemetery where his father’s remains and mother’s are, and he might he see the apparition again; however, he pitstops inside Rave to check on Julie)

Bruce: Naa, I have to go to the ce...the central park.
Julie: For what?
Bruce: Just for a walk.
Julie: (Pondering) I wonder what has been going on with your mind lately...
Bruce: I understand; I have been not like myself lately; but after this trip to the park it will all change.
Julie: That's cool.
Bruce: (Heading out, yet stops for something) You know what Julie!
Julie: (Heading back to what she was doing, then she hears Bruce) What?!
Bruce: (Hiding his feelings; hesitating) I like you as a friend.
Julie: (Looking at him then smiles and hesitates into saying it while remembering that dream and kiss she had with him, and she then just says it out of the blue) I love you!
Bruce: (Surprised) As a friend?!
Julie: No, I love you. I really do; I have feelings for you and I just didn't share it when it was the right time.

Man: I told him I know about Victor Power’s location and they let me in.
Jason: (Seeing if he is right) You were serious about knowing the exact location?
Man: Not exact, but close.
Jason: Get out! (Heading out)
Man: Come on! Listen, the name is Dex Hampton.
Jason: You must be joking!?
Dex: Yup, I’m the man with the worst mouth working with the Inquisitor.
Jason: Yeah, that piece of trash. Didn’t I remember the Daily Planet out-trump your paper nearly in every category besides the Worst Paper in the World.
Dex: Oooh, I’m quivering. Listen, Jase, Jason, or whatever you want me to call you.
Jason: I don’t want you to tell me jack. Security!
Dex: Alright, I may have the news of the century that could shake this city apart baby.
Jason: Listen hag, I got something important to do elsewhere. So dealing with you, is like dealing with a naked molerat.
Dex: (Listening) I’m not naked! (Smiling)
Jason: Keep it up and Metropolis won’t be expecting one of their reporters, but my bad I don’t think Metropolis actually matters.
Dex: I got news…and if I can’t tell this to you, I find another.
Jason: Go right ahead, I give you my blessing.
(Security walking towards them)
Jason: Take out the garbage.
(The guards grabs Dex’s shoulders and proceeds to taking him out)

Julie: I just needed a break.
Mira: Okay, I’ll be in the back. (About to head to the back)
Julie: (All of suddenly) I told him…
Mira: (Stopping after hearing that statement; turning around to Julie) Told who?
Julie: I told Bruce I loved him.
Mira: Okay, friend to friend right?!
Julie: (Looking at her not replying on that remark)
Mira: (Seeing her eyes and noticing that wasn’t what she meant) Oh! (Surprised when she found out what Julie actually meant by it) Well, what he said?
Julie: He just stands there not even saying one word.
Julie: And when I say “I really do love you”, he walked out.
Mira: (Stunned, but surprised) No!
Julie: I don’t know what to do.
Mira: Well since, Bruce didn’t offer his opinion, I will just say the past is in the past finally, and let’s think about the present. The place will be open in the next minute, so let the real fun begin.
Julie: (Remembering something) If you want to use the phone, I’m waiting for a phone call.
Mira: I don’t need it, so go ahead…and just so curious, who are you expecting?
Mira: (A little surprised about it, but thinks about the opening and heads to the back)

(The song continues)
Bruce: (As we suddenly see some tears in his face) Why is this crystal so sacred? Why is it so dangerous that I need to watch out? Why can’t I search for Victor? Tell me.
(The camera views the tombstone then back to Bruce about to breakdown)
Bruce: (Starting to yell and unknowingly crying about what is this distress he has) Please, I want to know! I’m your son! I was there when you and mom got shot right in front of my eyes…I was there, but I didn’t save you! And now I have to see that image everyday for the rest of my life. I regretted I was there and you had to die, but why! I lost the two most important figures in my life; I need you! I need mom! (Getting angry and starting to punch the tombstone out of anger) I wished that didn’t happened…I wish you two were still alive because right now I need you…I need both of you. (Getting angry again) Why you left me…why you had to go, I need you…I need you…
(As we see Bruce continuing to breakdown and as the song is reaching to the end, we suddenly see a dark brunette female walking to Bruce)
Bruce: (As we see tears running down his face, he is still upset to his parents) I need you... (Looking up to the female; he gets up from his knees and heads to her)
(As the song is about to end, he approaches her in a desperate hug; the camera shifts to see the female’s face who is none other than Leslie Thompskins)
Bruce: (Still hugging her in rejoice) I need you! I really need you!

Alfred: (Seeing that was an insult) I beg your pardon!
Dex: I need to talk to a Bruce Wayne.
Alfred: I’m sorry, but Master Wayne is not here. I let him know one of the members of the Rat Pack escaped.
Dex: I’m sorry, but I’m Dex Hampton, I worked for the Inquisitor.
Alfred: Oh; the only paper we get here in Gotham is the Gotham Times.
Dex: I’m from Metropolis.
Alfred: So why are you here?
Dex: To grab a big story; and I notice Bruce’s father, Mr. Thomas Wayne as well Mr. Victor Powers, were both partners of something…a very secretive project.
Alfred: Well I’m sorry, Master Wayne, do not know any of this. Since Master Thomas passed away a long time ago, and Mr. Powers missing I guess you need another big story.
Dex: Well not for my convenience, I researched this story I had brought you upon and there is a rare blue crystal that is some sort of power source for this so-called abandoned project.
Alfred: I’m sorry, but I do not know anything else. Sorry. (Closes the door)
(Cuts to the porch as we see Dex truly upset that he can’t talk to the Wayne boy, but he suddenly thought of something)

Bruce: (Stunned about what she just said)
Leslie: Bruce, you’re not the only one who expressed the anger of not being there to save them.
Bruce: I do, but I was there.
Leslie: But you were a seven year old boy; if you were older, the scenario would have been different.
Bruce: And my parents would still be alive. (Continuing walking across the bridge)
(Leslie seeing Bruce still down; and trying to figure how to straighten him out; she runs in front of him)
Leslie: Bruce, wait!
Bruce: (Seeing what she had to say)
Leslie: The world is full of terror; there are secrets out there that can hurt everyone around us. Those secrets can hurt, and even worse, they can even kill. What matters worse, we never see it coming. What we don't know is that this is our destiny.
Leslie: Your parent’s destinies were long written before they died, and they both completed it triumphant. However, one of their main goals is for your safety and for you to complete your destiny.
Bruce: And I haven’t.
Leslie: Don’t be surprise in what you hear, your destiny may come where you least expect it.
Bruce: I can expect to see you for dinner.
Leslie: (Trying her best to tell him) I can’t…
Bruce: No you are going to make it; come on. I need you.
Leslie: The only person that can help you is you; and if you need somebody close to you to protect you, you have Alfred.
(As we see Bruce, Leslie continues to talk off screen)
Leslie: Alfred is like a second father to you Bruce, if you need someone to be by your side in your time in need…Alfred is going to be there. That’s what he promised your parents and as myself, promised to keep a watchful eye on you.
Leslie: Bruce, you have a long way to go in order to complete your destiny. Until then, Alfred and your friends will always be there beside you.
Leslie: (Smiling) Always.
(She then kisses Bruce on the forehead)
Leslie: Goodbye my godson, see you later. (About to head out)

Rogan: That is Standford-Ruben…nothing. I researched again, and again, and again…there is no fundamental evidence to support that company is real.
Jason: (Knowing it has to be only one thing) Starlix.
Jason: (Seeing Rogan) I want you to give me everything you can dig up on Starlix and I want to know if Standford-Ruben is connecting somehow.
Rogan: Yes sir. (Getting up and retrieving the folder)
Jason: (Sees Bradson, he looks to Rogan) You can go.
(Rogan agrees and starts walking away, as Bradson enters, we see Rogan exiting with security)

Gina: Hey Bruce.
Bruce: (Standing up) What are you doing here… I thought Alfred…
Gina: He let me in; he was a little stunned… (Walking around) but he wasn’t that surprised to see me here.
Bruce: Which leads me to my question, why are you here?
Gina: I left because my past came back and bite both of us.
Bruce: Yeah, one of my closet friends had to be kidnapped by a person who knows you.
Gina: And I was sorry for that; I came back here in order to see if there was a spark that can revive our relationship.
Bruce: You lost that a long time ago.
Gina: I’m sorry. Listen, I’m also here because I’m a different person.
Bruce: You are?
Gina: Bruce come on, trust me.
Bruce: (Thinking about the times he had with her)
Gina: I know I did a lot of terrible things in the past, and I am shameful of doing them, but please Bruce let the past be in the past.
Bruce: I’m trying. (Not knowing he was also talking about his past)
(Gina feeling sorry and then we see Bruce sitting on the end of his bed and then we shift back to Gina as she her phone is beeping)

(Cuts off to a still-stunned Lucius as he holds his phone on his ear)

Man: (Turning around to see the man) My name is Jacob Zimmerman not this so called Victor Powers.
Dex: You definitely look like him.
Jacob: Who are you?
Dex: The name is Rex Hampton; I’m from Metropolis…the Inquisitor.
Jacob: And your mission?
Dex: My mission is to finally get a big break on my story. And I know you Victor…I mean Jacob. But I think this might help you down your memory path.

Thomas: I’m here for this.
(The camera sees Thomas throwing a folder down on the desk)
Victor: (Seeing the file Avalon) Okay its Avalon, what’s the point.
Thomas: The point is I canceled the project a year ago…how in the world that project got reinstated without my knowledge.
Victor: I’m sorry, but don’t forget my friend, this project was created from the both of us. Seeing that we have some creative disagreements you wanting to terminate it, while I…
Thomas: Create mass murder.
Victor: Excuse me?!
Thomas: That crystal we been searching for, how long you been tracking it.
Victor: I can’t say.
Thomas: Well I do. You spent almost $30 Million and about three years searching for that artifact you will never have. That’s the number one reason why I want to terminate this project. Using that crystal is dangerous.
Victor: And who are you, my father.
Thomas: No, I used to be your partner and frankly I thought I was your friend.
Victor: Friends don’t turn their backs on well-deserving projects.
Thomas: Well friends don’t blackmail other younger businessman in order to use their resources for your personal gain.
Victor: (Seeing Thomas undercovering his dirty laundry) About that…
Thomas: Forget it; you didn’t think your past will come back at you my friend. Oh, I need to stop calling you that, because frankly you are not the man I thought I trusted.
Victor: I was and let me be again. We can work together and re-change Avalon’s format; start from scratch. What you say?!
Thomas: You loss it. (Heading out)
Victor: And where you going?
Thomas: Doing what I do best, helping people.
Victor: What about me? The crystal? Avalon? Our partnership?
Thomas: They all are in the trash. (Leaving)
(Seeing Thomas leaving for good leaving everything they worth up to do down in the drain; he grabs the folder and stamps [REJECTED] and throws it in the desk big drawer)

Jacob: (Seeing him and then feeling weird) What is going on?
Dex: You’re okay?
Jacob: I don’t know.
Dex: Are you sure, because I really want to know how your friendship with Thomas Wayne is now ten years ago.
Jacob: (Hearing that remark) It’s in the trash.
Man: I don’t know who the hell is Jacob, I’m not Jacob, and my name is Victor Langston Powers.
Dex: The true Victor Powers have come back; I’m honor to finally meet you.
Victor: (Seeing this place) What happened to me?
Dex: Maybe telling your story about Avalon and the crystal will rejog those memories.
(As Victor sees him pushing the recorder to Victor’s face, the camera sees Dex trying to get the scoop and then a shot fired as we see a bullet hole in the center of Dex’s forehead; he collapses instantly)

(We see Bradson putting down his gun, and approaches to Victor)
Bradson: Are you okay sir?
Victor: I’m fine... (Judging a second time) I think. Are you…Bradson?

Det. Alder: You’re okay?
Lucius: Oh, I’m fine. I just want to know why this gig had to take so long.
Det. Alder: We knew this facility was holding a mole who was giving secret information about lost projects; I’m glad you joined in the fun.
Lucius: Fun? For weeks, and you call this fun.
Det. Alder: You haven’t been a police officer long enough to know this is usually a routine.

Leo: Oh Gina the double-crossing slayer.
Bruce: First off Gina is no double-crosser, nor she is a slayer.
Leo: Dude, she tried to kill Victor. Even though, I was sad she didn’t finish the job. It doesn’t matter; all it matters is that the two people you thought would be away have a really good returning stamp address.
Bruce: Yeah I know. (Still feeling depressed)
Leo: Dude, what’s wrong? I know you were happy Leslie was back, shock Gina came back; what’s worse Victor coming back from the dead.

Bruce: Hey I forget to mention, Alfred told me you bicycled yourself here; what happen to your car?
Leo: Long story; I got to take this. (Heading to the door, but before goes out) Bruce, remember your heart matters. You know what to do.
