Synopsis for "Son of Penguin, Part 2"
Barbara is going on a date with Ethan Cobblepot, Penguin's son. After dealing with a Two-Face's scheme, she presses Ethan to talk about his connection to the Penguin: Ethan's mother was a waitress at the Iceberg Lounge whom the Penguin knocked up. Cobblepot wanted nothing to do with the child, but out of a sense of duty more than anything, he was never late with child support. When Ethan got into Yale, Oswald sent a check for his tuition and announced that his obligation was done. Since Ehan did not need the money he came to Gotham to return the check in person. The Penguin said Ethan could do whatever he wanted with the check and wanted him out of his office. Ehan used that money to start his VicForm firm.
The next Saturday Barbara goes to South Burnside elementary school where she does volunteer work teaching kids Computer Science. After school a kid is picked up by her "walkhome". That night Barbara is spying on Ethan before going out with her friends. When a girl is having trouble with a stalker, Barbara offers to walk with her back home. The girl declines and pulls her cell phone out to get a "walkhome".
Apparently, "Walkhome" is another app built by VicForm. Barbara gets a bad feeling, so she changes clothes and goes outside to watch over that girl. Her walkhome turns out to be Magpie, who deals with a stalker brutally. Batgirl engages Magpie, who complains that she is trying to earn a living because she has to pay rent... and then whips out a handgun. Batgirl disarms and punches Magpie out.
Barbara is more determined than ever to keep an eye on Ethan. And Ethan is determined to carry through with his plans, getting Batgirl out of the way first.
