There was a time above...

A time before...

There were perfect things.

Diamond absolutes.

But things fall...

Things on Earth,

and what falls...

- fallen.

- Master Wayne. Bruce!

Bruce, are you alright.


In the dream

they took me to the light.

A beautiful lie.

- Jack.

- Bruce.

Jack, listen to me.

I want you to get everyone

out of the building. Right now.

You understand?

Let's go.

Come on, start moving now, people.

Let's go.

The boss wants us out

of the building.

So, let's make it happen.



We're sorry.

All services are busy now.

Will you please try

you call again later.

Heaven god.

Creator of heaven and earth.

Have mercy on my soul.


Mr. Wayne!

Mr. Wayne!

I can't feel my legs.

- I can't feel my legs.

- We need help over here!

Help me.

I can't feel my legs.

You're going to be okay,

you hear me?


What do they call you, Wally?


You're the boss, Boss.


- You're going to be okay.

- Easy, easy.

Come on.

Oh my god.

I can't feel my legs.

I can't...

I can't feel my legs.

It's okay.

You're going to be okay.

You're okay, alright.


Okay, you know what?

We're going to find your mom.

Where is she?



Are you a terrorist, general?

They did not tell me

the interview was with a lady.

I'm not a lady,

I'm a journalist.

What I am,

is a man with nothing,

except a love of my people.

Uh, don't open...

You just exposed...

Who's paying for these

security contractors, general?

Who pays for the drones that

passed over our heads at night?

One question begs another.



They're tracking us.


Not her.

We just used her credentials as cover.

She doesn't know anything.

It's okay, Lois.


I didn't know.

Ignorance is not the same...

as innocence.

Miss Lane.

Get up!

Stand up!

Move out!

Take 1 step,

you will see the inside of her head.

The women in the village

heard a noise.

Like the sky crack open.

He came down, so many dead.

Even worse came after.

The government attacked.

No mercy in the villages.

My parents tried to run...

The world has been so caught up

with what Superman can do,


no one has asked what he should do.

Let the record show that

this committee holds him responsible.

He'll never answer to you.

He answers to no one.

Not even I think, to god.

- Hey.

- Hey.

I was going to cook.

Surprise you.

They held hearings about what happened.

- They're saying that...

- I don't care.

I don't care

what they're saying.

The woman I love could have

been blown up or shot

- Think of what could have happened.

- Well, think about what did happen.

I didn't kill those men if

that's what they think.

If that's what you're saying?

I'm saying I want to

understand what happened.

I'm saying,

thank you for saving my life.

I'm saying there's a cost.

I just don't know

if it's possible.

Don't know what's possible?

For you to love me and be you.

Clark, you're going to

flood the apartment.


There has been a report of screaming

at location 1939 Harbor Way

Possible shots fired.


It saved us.

A devil.

It's okay.

It's okay.

We're-We're going to help.

It saved us.

Okay, we're going to

get you out of here.


It's still here.

I - I don't understand.



I saw him.

I never saw him before.

I didn't know...

You almost took my face off.

How about you don't shoot

the good guys, huh?


Jesus Christ.

He branded him.

Still working.

You're getting slow in

your old age, Alfred.

It comes to us all,

master Wayne.

Even you got too old to die young,

and not for lack of trying.

Funnel, fairy, bubblebath.

Funnel, fairy, bubblebath.

There's nothing wrong

with the microphone.

It's this new layer or armor.

I'll just have to rewire.


last night was productive?

Nope. He's too low level,

he knew nothing.

This, is a man who knows things.

Anatoli Knyazev.

He's Russian.

Contracts all over the globe but

he's base out of the port of Gotham.

Weapons and human trafficking.

So, the "White Portuguese" is a Russian,

that's the theory.


The theory is that the Russian

lead me to the man himself.

If he is indeed a him.

You don't know if he exist.

He could be a phantasm.

One that wants to bring

a dirty bomb into Gotham?

Ah, high state front.

New rules.

We're criminals, Alfred.

We've always been criminals,

nothing's change.


Yes it has, sir.

Everything's change.

Men fall from the sky.

And gods hurl thunderbolts.

Innocents die.

That's how it starts.

The fever, the rage,

the feeling of... powerlessness

that turns good men...


Justice turn dark across the harbor

when police found an alleged sex trafficker

apparently tortured and branded

by the Gotham bat.

The man is the second criminal

found baring the bat brand.

The first victim, an accused child predator

later was assaulted in prison

and remains in critical care

from his injuries.

One source tells Metropolis,

that many believed

the mark of the Bat brand in prison

essentially is a death sentence.

In other news, the mayor

has announced that Metroplis...

Frank, your D!




A hoi hoi.

I didn't know you were here.

- Man on the marquee.

- Stop, don't believe it.

My father named the company after himself.

He was the Lex in front of the Corp.

- Hi, how are you doing?
