Synopsis for "Burning Love"
The mayoral election is near and Firefly is still at large. Firebug sought vengeance agains Firefly and the False Face Society for replacing him as Gotham's top arsonist. Batman tried to stop him but he was unable to protect Rigger from himself and he ended up dead.
Meanwhile, the Firefly is still dating his lady neighbour and committing arsons by Black Mask's command. Batman interrogated Joe Rabbit and located Firefly's next target. A brewery in Tricorner was the chosen place. Lynns took Deelia Withers there and revealed her his true identity. Batman and Robin arrived to save the woman from being burned. Batman and Firefly struggled before the place turned to a inferno. Robin crashed a truck against a storage silo. The beer of the silo put the flames down and Batman managed to subdue Lynns. Batman then told Robin that Lynns spoke of angels in the fire and that for one moment, he could see them too.
