Synopsis for "Underground Railroad, Part Two"
Mackenzie Bock is fighting Angel, as it was previously arranged. Bock is doing well because of the teachings of Alfonso DeVries and in the end he manages to beat Angel in the most ruthless way. After that, Penguin has to fulfill his part of the pact and he gives Bock the instructions for that night.
Later, Bock and Vanessa DeVries move the children under their care to the bus that will take them to the way out of Gotham City. Robin arrives and provides protection to the bus while it goes to the place. Soon, the bus is surrounded by street gangsters led by Angel. Robin takes some of them out and gives Bock and the kids enough time to reach the underground train station that they are going to use to get out of Gotham.
When the train starts moving, Angel and his men reach the railroad. Penguin's men radio their boss and asks him for help. At first, Penguin isn't going to help them, but after a change of heart caused by the image of the Joker, he decides to go out and help Bock and the children.
Bock, Vanessa and Alfonso try to hold the line but they are outnumbered by Angel's people. Angel manages to get in the train and he and Bock start fighting again. Penguin arrives just in time to prevent all the thugs from getting into the train. Angel and Bock are fighting on the engine and Angel damages the brakes of the train. Bock de-couples the train from the engine and it crashes on the outside wall of Gotham. The U.S. Marshals notice the train coming from out of it and go to check the situation. Bock explains to them that the kids need to be taken to a hospital and Angel tries to tell them that he is going to capture all of them for violating the curfew. The Marshals notice the truth and they take the kids to a hospital and apprehend Angel and all of his men. Vanessa and her father bid farewell to Bock and he returns to Gotham along with Penguin and his henchmen. In the end, Bock is feeling more like a hero than he has ever felt before.
