Synopsis for "Vacancies"
Batman pursues small-time crook 'Macky' McKenna, for breaking into the wrong house - Macky stole the contents of James Gordon's house, Batman's friend. Sasha observes this, and although at first she worries about how driven Batman is (even more so than usual), especially in light of how he recently dumped Vesper Fairchild to stop her getting close to him, she comes to realise that it shows how his mission is not just about revenge, it's about protecting people. Together, they force Macky and his associates to return what they stole and leave them for the police to pick up.
Appearing in "Vacancies"
- Donald 'Macky' McKenna

Synopsis for "Josie Mac: Lost Voices, Part Three"
As she is returning home from the grocery store, a man attempts to shoot Josie on her doorstep. Although it seems like an attempted robbery or mugging, Josie does not really believe this, and Detective Lincoln who is on duty when she takes the man (Charley White) in, agrees - he has no history of robbery, only much less serious offences. Later, Batman turns up at her flat, and warns her to stay off the case (which he says is too dangerous, and he doesn't want good cops hurt), also revealing that he is aware of her psychic abilities. As he goes, he leaves her a Bat-branded plaster for the wound she sustained fighting off her attacker, who later commits suicide in his holding cell.
