Synopsis for "The Darker Knight, Part II"

As Mr. Wing gloats about earning a bonus for killing both Batman and Azrael, Bruce directs his partner to use the "Sword of Salvation" technique, with both kicking him in the gut. Batman fights him while Azrael chases after the Penguin and succeeds in knocking the giant man-bird out. Catching up with Azrael, he finds he has badly beaten up Penguin while forcing him to tell whom he had the Shawl of Magdalene stolen for.

Azrael tosses the Penguin off the balcony, stating he must suffer in place of Catwoman for the theft. As Batman is forced to save the Penguin, he finds that Azrael has fled the Iceberg Lounge. Bruce later tells Alfred about his worries of not being able to find him before he leaves a lot of bodies in wake, but gets told by him of a body being stolen from a graveyard which he'll find interesting. Meanwhile at the Iceland skating rink, Azrael discovers a corpse covered with the Shawl of Magdalene, realizing Penguin's client didn't know of its powers.

Mr. Freeze confronts Azrael when he tries taking the shawl back while refusing to listen to him when he states that he's sympathetic about what happened to his wife and that the Shawl of Magdalene cannot resurrect the dead, proceeding to encase him in ice. Batman arrives to investigate the rink after learning that the corpse that was recently stolen was of Nora Fries, since Mr. Freeze once used the rink to stash his weapons and guessed he was behind it. He soon finds Azrael frozen in ice and gets attacked by Freeze, who states he has a minute to save his partner.

Tossing Nora's corpse over, Batman creates a distraction which allows him to pierce Freeze's helmet and the ice encasing Azrael with his Batarangs, which generate sonic pulses to break the two things. After encasing Freeze's head in ice to help him survive, Bruce finds that Azrael is barely alive and uses the Shawl of Magdalene to save him. Later at a church of the Order of St. Dumas, Batman lights votive candles for Nora and Freeze's recovery. Jean-Paul puts the shawl back in its case in the church and promises Bruce that he'll be there if he ever needs help again.

Meanwhile at an amusement park, the man who's been stalking the Batman Family is spying on Joker in his hideout from a Ferris wheel. Joker soon realizes this upon spotting him from his window.
