Synopsis for "Procedure"

Detectives Crispus Allen and Renee Montoya arrive at Wayne Manor to begin their high profile investigation into the murder of Vesper Fairchild. The victim was shot several times in the back and all the evidence seems to point to Bruce Wayne, making this case one that is fast becoming a media frenzy. After looking over the scene, both detectives head back to the GCPD Headquarters and begin their independent interrogations of Wayne and his bodyguard Sasha Bordeaux. When the 911 police tape is played for Wayne, Allen states it could be the proof needed to get Bruce the death penalty if he doesn't tells the truth about Vesper's death. However, Bruce and Sasha would not reveal any information.

The news about Vesper's murder has reached the media and at that moment at Brentwood Academy, where Alfred Pennyworth has been staying with Tim Drake, Wayne's butler packs his belongings and heads back to Wayne Manor to offer his help in any way he can.
