Synopsis for "Son of Penguin, Part 1"
Barbara Gordon is back home in Burnside, but the place has changed noticeably during her time abroad. Businesses have been replaced, prizes have skyrocketed, her apartment rent has doubled and her friend Frankie is moving out. At the very least she feels she made the right choice when she switched her major to Library Science.
Barbara attends a charity event cosponsored by her company and meets Ethan, a young entrepreneur that has developed VicForm, a firm that uses technology to change communities. Ethan asks her out and Barbara accepts, before finding out his full name is Ethan Cobblepot. He is the Penguin's son.
Barbara intends to see Ethan the next Saturday night and check whether he is or is not up to something. Previously she calls Dick, who tells he had no idea that the Penguin has a son.
After talking to Dick, Barbara watches a couple reporting a homeless guy on "Safestreets", a new app. Apparently, the owners of "Safestreets" will send someone out to pick that man up. Barbara is extremely suspicious about it all and decides to stick around after a quick change of clothes.
Two hours later she sees two men picking up the homeless guy. When the man protests, they knock him out and dump him in the back of their truck. Batgirl follows them.
Batgirl leaps into action when the truckers deliver the man to Fright. She battles and defeats Fright, with a bit of help of the homeless guy, but Fright claims she did not build the "Safestreets" app.
A quick internet search reveals "Safestreets" has been developed by VicForm. Barbara is more determined than ever to find out what Ethan is up to.
