Butch visits Cat. He needs her to take him to the Pike brothers who are the best arsonists in Gotham.

Cat talks about Fish coming back, but Butch says he doesn't think that's going to happen.
They get to Pike's place. The brothers want to shoot Butch, but Cat convinces them that Butch is one of them. They talk about Fish and her return. Butch tries to dismiss the idea, but is cut off.

She runs outside to cry. Cat follows and gives her a mini pep talk.
