Synopsis for "Table for Two"

This story is reprinted from Detective Comics: Batman 80th Anniversary Giant #1.

Alfred is delighted at making Bruce a proper meal and states it's been long since he had one. Coming upon the dining room, he notices that he's still in his batsuit and the latter decides to don ordinary clothing after realizing he forgot. As he changes, the Bat-Computer notifies him about a police alert regarding an alliance between Two-Face, Mad Hatter, the Ventriloquist, the Penguin and Killer Croc. Harvey Dent has declared himself as the lord of Gotham's underworld and Gordon has been notified about Mad Hatters location by an anonymous source.

Arriving at Mad Hatter's hideout, Bruce asks him about the location of Two-face and subdues him along with his gang when he refuses to surrender. Hatter states that he's not working with Dent, but Batman discovers the latter's hair in his hat. The Batmobile determines that the origin of aerosol in his hair matches with that of Gotham's industrial district. Once there, he confronts the Ventriloquist and demands he tell him where Two-Face is, but his Batmobile gets attacked by armor-piecing bullets.

After taking out Ventriloquist and his cronies, Batman checks the wood of the crates the armor-piercing bullets were stored in and discovers they had been moved through Gotham's sewage system. There, he confronts Killer Croc and demands he spill what he knows about Dent. As his Batcycle gets punched, Batman gets injured but tells him that he's already been hit with a tranquilising dart. Examining the bag of meat he was carrying, Batman finds it is from Atlantic Bluefin tuna which can only be farmed at the Old Gotham Aquarium.

Confronting the Penguin at the aquarium in his Batboat, Bruce warns him to spill the beans against Dent, but gets attacked by his pet penguins armed with bombs. Bruce ejects in time but gets badly injured and knocks him out, before discovering a letter of invitation to Demarco's restaurant on his person by Dent. Arriving at the restaurant, he finds that the staff has been tied up in the kitchen while Dent is sitting outside.

Batman recognizes that Dent invited him in his normal state and all the criminals he stopped were never in league with him, but they were merely set-up so he could exact his revenge for them escaping justice during his days as district attorney. He also figures out that he invited him to a last meal for Two-Face and stops him before he can stab him. After handcuffing him, Batman asks if he wants to finish his meal since it's his favorite restaurant, but he rejects it stating that it's taste will be spoilt as he has no one to dine with.

After arriving back at the Wayne Manor, Bruce asks Alfred if he'll have dinner with him, but finds he is sleeping with his meal, as well a note addressed to him placed near him. Bruce hopes they'll be able to have dinner together the day after.

Synopsis for "Through the Keyhole"

Anarky broadcasts live on Viewtube the pictures of a mansion owned by a notorious criminal of Gotham city, before telling his audience that he's going to infiltrate it. Soon two guards on the mansion grounds are tasered into unconsciousness before he enters inside the mansion.

Meanwhile, the Ventriloquist about disliking being in the open to carry out a drug deal but Scarface states that he wants the $100,000 Smithy borrowed. Ventriloquist's driver Lurch steps out to hand the bag of drugs to Smithy and take the money, but the deal soon gets interrupted by Batman. Lurch and Ventriloquist are able to escape, but Batman tags their car with a tracker and informs Commissioner Gordon about the four people involved in the deal he has left for the police at the Werber factory.

Back at the mansion, Anarky broadcasts the luxurious life the owner of the mansion lives in and reveals it's the Ventriloquist, about whose involvement in facilitating drug deals he's been hearing about. Scarface finds his guards knocked out after returning and learns who infiltrated his home when they recover. Anarky tries to taser Lurch after being told to surrender, but finds it had little effect on him before being knocked unconscious with a single punch.

When Scarface berates Anarky for trying to rob him, he states that he just wanted to show Gothamites how the criminal was living a life of luxury from his ill-gotten money. Batman intervenes before he is killed and knocks all of Scarface's goons out. Batman then tells the Ventriloquist that he'll be jailed for a few years at least for possessing the briefcase with drugs, but gets told by Scarface that only Lurch had his fingerprints on it, promising to get the best lawyers for him. As Batman and Anarky take their leave, the latter thanks the former and hopes to pay him back someday but gets told to think carefully about the vigilante life he's chosen. Anarky sarcastically states he might get his own car one day.
