Synopsis for "The Book of Memory"
On New Year's Day, an unhinged Hugo Strange stumbles through Gotham, now unable to repress the memory of his son's murder. As a result, he hallucinates every passerby to be either David, or David's murderer.
Meanwhile, upon realizing his memories have been reset, Catwoman manipulates Batman into being her partner in crime. The pair easily steal a heavily-guarded diamond ring, but while Catwoman is gleeful, Batman is tormented by his conscience. Shortly after, Robin and Commissioner Gordon review security footage of the theft, correctly deduce Batman's situation, and lay a trap for Catwoman at the Uptown Theater.
Frustrated with Batman's stubborn high-mindedness, Catwoman goes on a solo crime spree, and quickly falls into Robin's trap. Batman, who had secretly tailed her out of guilt, attacks Robin but calms down when Robin mentions Wayne Manor and Alfred. A disturbed Robin takes his mentor back to the Batcave, informing an equally disturbed Alfred that that Batman - Bruce Wayne - is not just amnesiac, but possessed of the mind of a seven-year-old. In other words, the mind he possessed just before his parents' deaths.
