Back at the Clocktower, Wade is droning on: "Our relationship is the most important thing in my life." SHUT UP, WADE. Then he notices the monitors and says, "Uh, Barbara?" and she looks, and now Barbara's security cameras are independently changing angles and zooming in and focusing on the bad guys, like, those are some cameras. Barbara tells Dinah and Helena that Clayface is on the stage, and somehow, being backstage, Dinah and Helena failed to notice the armed thugs taking the screaming audience hostage. I mean, good god. And Helena rushes to kill Chris (as if), but Dinah says they need a plan, and Helena's all, nuts to that, at least until one of the models with an Uzi comes backstage and points it at them. "We need a plan," says Helena. Commercials.
If I were a librarian, I don't think I'd settle a bet between a woman and her moron boyfriend messing up the lyrics to his favourite Def Leppard song.
Clayface and Son of Clayface blah blah about how Chris is doing this for his dad, with Clayface calling bullshit on that and telling his stupid kid that nobody upstages him. Yawn. Chris just nods, while Barbara uses her camera to zoom in on Clayface's hand on Chris's shoulder for some reason.
Backstage, Dinah and Helena's plan consists of Dinah blathering on and on, which I think might actually cause the thug to turn the gun on herself. In this case, though, she's sufficiently distracted for Helena and Dinah to grab her gun and knock her down. And Oracle tells them there are two guns on the stage and one at each of the two entrances, so Helena and Dinah should take out the entrances first and get Reese to hustle everybody out of there. Huh? That sounds like a recipe for getting everybody mowed down by automatic-weapons fire, but what do I know? And where is Reese, anyway? Meanwhile, Wade seems to be kind of turned on by watching Barbara direct all of this. Also, Clayface is comforting his son by telling him that he once tried to pull the same thing on his own "fadda."
So Helena and Dinah each easily take out the guards by the exits, and somehow Clayface and Son up on stage don't notice, like, the general theme of this episode is people not noticing things happening right in front of them. And Dinah and Reese start hustling people out the exits, and FINALLY the Claymen notice their plan unraveling and the bullets start flying, at least until Helena takes both the gun-models out, leaving her to confront Clayface and Chris. "I am not going back to Arkham," says Clayface, which is fine, I guess -- this show didn't bother to show us him LEAVING Arkham in the first place, but I guess he escaped somehow. You'd think Oracle's computer would alert her to a homicidal shape-shifter escaping custody. Clayface orders his son to get Helena, prompting Helena to throw her much-too-convenient-plotwise Magic Balls of Power Negation on the ground. Apparently she's got a lot of faith in them, too, since she lets Chris grab her; when nothing happens, she clobbers him and throws him into the fountain, leaving just Clay Daddy.
