When we come back, Barbara's still trying to get hold of Helena when Dinah wanders up and asks what's going on, and maybe she's been listening to too much Marvin Gaye lately. Barbara fills her in on the most recent abduction, as well as losing contact with Helena, saying there must be something in the Old Gotham substructure that's interfering with the comm set. Probably lead.
Back at the arena, there is now a scary group of tuxedo-clad older gentlemen pumping their fists and yelling, "Fight! Fight! Fight!" Scarface is now wearing a microphone headset and yells, "So you wanna see a fight? Well, you came to the right place! Gentlemen! Welcome to Gladiatrix!" ["How awesome would it have been if they'd brought Richard Dawson out of retirement to play this role?" -- Sars] And on cue, we see a really tight close-up of what are apparently two women's torsos wrestling. That's some hot action right there.
Elsewhere, there are angry women in black stomping around their cages, rattling bars. Helena's unconscious on the floor of her cell. She wakes up and starts rattling the bars of her own cage, only to be informed by her neighbour, Ol' Green Eyes, that she can't escape, since the bars are some sort of titanium alloy that can't be broken, "even by the strongest of us." She's wearing the same identical black uniform with bright white lapels that Helena now has on. "What's going on here?" asks Helena, but Green Eyes catches herself. "The guards say not to talk to the enemy, it only makes the end harder." "'The end'? What are you talking about?" says Helena. Not too bright, is she? But Green Eyes is freaking out: "Don't come any closer, bitch!" and you're thinking, she's in a cage for crying out loud -- how close can she get? Helena tells her to relax, but Green Eyes shoots out some sort of green beams from her eyes, narrowly missing Helena's feet. Then Green Eyes's white lapels turn red and her body convulses in pain. It's Scarface, flanked by henchmen, holding the Lapel Pain Remote Control and leering evilly. After several seconds, he shuts off the torture device. "Tell me the rule, Claire," he says. "No powers in the cells. Save it for the ring," she says. "That's a good girl," he says, before strolling over to Helena's cell. "Can't have the merchandise damaging each other before the show," he says before flicking on Helena's pain lapels, knocking her to the ground. After he shuts it off, she climbs to her feet. "Try that again, I'll kill you slowly," she says, and Scarface says that she's "lively," which is one of the reasons he lured her down there, revealing that he left the disc key for her to find. "Because I can hardly wait to watch you fight," he says. She offers to fight him right there, and he rather unnecessarily tells her that she'll be fighting the other girls. When Helena asks why she'd do that, he presses his remote control again. Oh, right, the torture device thing. "The same reason all my girls fight. This!" he says as some freaky-looking prison matron injects Helena in the back of the neck. Scarface says it's a drug he designed to bring out their inner rage. Then he says he likes Helena and hopes she doesn't go too quickly.
