Synopsis for "Perfect Pitch"
During his rehabilitation at Blackgate, Shreeve was undergoing tests that could possibly bring back his sense of hearing but the damage towards his ear lobes was proven inoperable. However, the prison's physician has made certain considerations on Shreeve's behalf. Shreeve made the doctor believe that he is becoming a modeled prisoner who wants to work with sound generating equipment in order to cure other people that are hearing impaired. When the time was right, Shreeve used his sound generating weaponry on the guards and broke down cell blocks in Blackgate which released his fellow inmates. Shreeve's accomplice "Slick" Gardner informs him that their getaway sub is in Blackgate's caverns. Terry arrives to round up the escaping prisoners but Shreeve and Slick got away.
The next night, Terry goes out on a double date with Dana Tan and Maxine Gibson. The three of them see bright lights flashing and hear huge explosions in the skies. Terry and Dana assume it was fireworks but Maxine figures that the explosions are coming from police skycams. Maxine eludes to Terry that he should go get some "help" and Terry springs into action while Maxine takes Dana home. Slick accompanied Shriek while Shreeve was destroying the skycams so that the city would be blind to his activities. Shriek intended to steal power crystals that would amplify his sound blasting weaponry. Terry arrives at the heist but Shriek had the upper hand because he has designed his sound blasters to vibrate the bonds that hold molecules together which causes any material to break apart into nothing. For instance, a flying batarang heading toward Shriek can be disintegrated before it even reaches him.
Afterwards, Shriek targets Terry's suit and causes it to fall apart. Terry's face is almost exposed but Shriek can't make the connection that Terry was the pizza boy that showed up at his place of business before Shreeve became Shriek. Shriek then blasts Terry off the roof of the building where the power crystals were being stored. Terry's rocket boosters in his boots were destroyed but Bruce told Terry by via comm link that he had put a retro bat grappler in his utility belt so he could use it to grapple back to the roof.
Shriek chants at his supposed success of killing the Batman but Terry takes Slick and Shriek by surprise. Slick gets tied up by a bat bola while Terry grabs Shriek's sound blasting gloves and directs them towards Shreeve's suit. Shreeve's suit is shattered and the convicts are taken back to Blackgate. Fortunately for Shriek, he kept some sound generating equipment in his old cell and developed a neural hearing device that would allow him to hear again. Once again, Shriek proves to himself that he is smarter than those stupid doctors who said he would never hear again but most of all, he believes that he is smarter than the Batman. Slick starts complaining about being sent back to Blackgate but Shreeve shuts off his hearing aid in order to block out Slick's ranting.
