Batman gives Sasha Bordeaux one month to achieve a standard of fitness which will ensure that she doesn't interfere with his work - if she fails to do this, she will be fired, regardless of the fact that she knows his secret. During the same month, Vesper Fairchild resumes dating Bruce Wayne and also tries to catch the Batman on camera. In addition, Internal Affairs' Inspector Esperanza investigates the Major Crimes Unit. At first he focusses on the actions of Allen and Montoya under the Mad Hatter's influence, but his attention soon turns to the death of Jordan Reynolds, the man who shot Commissioner Gordon. At the end of the month, Sasha passes the test and can help Batman do his job.
