Synopsis for "Deathgrip"
Batman has been captured by the Squid and is currently struggling against the crook's giant squid pet. Batman manages to break free and escapes from the deathtrap. The only member of the criminals in the whole place that notices Batman's escape, is the one that they call Croc, but the thug departs remarking that this outfit 'smells of loser'. Outside he notices the Batman fleeing, looks up and still does nothing calmly letting him go.
Later, Bruce returns to Wayne Manor, where Dick Grayson has organized a party with his new friends from the Sloan Circus, the Todd Family. When Bruce arrives, he is taken to a room, where Dick and Alfred take care of his wounds. Unfortunately, Trina Todd enters the room looking for Dick and she notices the Batsuit near Bruce, who is full of bandages. Even though Dick tells her to forget about the whole incident, they know that she most likely knows the truth.
Moments later, Squid has gathered his gang again. Ranting about setbacks, he attempts to make plans for his next gambit to murder Batman. His men are uncertain about his chances some even consider leaving as Croc has. Meanwhile, Waylon has already found a convenient place one hundred yards outside of Squid's secret headquarters in the aquarium and using a sniper's rifle (the Mannlicher VIII) kills the Squid as part of his attempt to take over Gotham's underworld, and as payback for the Spy's earlier threat. He then leaves having used one single bullet which had penetrated his rival's heart.
The next day, Batman and Commissioner Gordon learn about the murder of Squid and they know that whoever killed him is the person they should be worried about with Batman saying that there was a witness namely the bullet which entered the spymaster's heart.

Synopsis for "Mob Rule! (Part II) - Heat of the Moment!"
Green Arrow finally defeats the Executrix with reflector-signal arrows and pumps her for information about Machiavelli. In the meantime, Machiavelli is huddling with the Wall Street Irregulars and convinces them that criminals can run Star City's government better than its elected officials. Later, Machiavelli and his group crash a town meeting on the anti-strike clause, at which the villain gives a political speech and is greeted with “Mac for mayor!” cries. When the real mayor of Star City tries to shoo Machiavelli off the stage, a gunsel pulls a weapon on him, and Green Arrow, in hiding, nocks an arrow to his bow, only to find another hood's gun at his head.
