Synopsis for "Part One"

Two police officers come across the murder of a woman and her two children. They call it in, and then find the husband and father still in the house, watching television. He insists it isn't what it looks like and asks if he can finish watching the show. The husband dies two days later, his heart just shutting down. It is the fourth spree killing in a week.

Batman and Commissioner Gordon go over the scene together, discovering the woman's body was cannibalized and shoe prints that indicate another person was in the house during the murders. Batman also finds a bottle of medication prescribed by Dr. Rousse.

Bruce Wayne meets Ray Childress, the assistant director at University Hospital, and Dr. Pierre Rousse. They discuss Rousse's research into the human genome, which led him to believe that every human is comprised of the "fight or flight" instinct in conflict with itself. He claims he hasn't written a prescription in years.

Two-Face requests a meeting with Batman, who breaks into Arkham Asylum. Harvey tells Batman he is losing the fight to Two-Face and he wanted to say goodbye; however, Batman realizes this is a trap and there is a bomb in Two-Face's cell. It goes off.
