Back at the Clocktower, Barbara and Dinah are discovering that all their frantic typing isn't much help in locating Helena. But Barbara has discovered a match for the symbol on the disc. It showed up in an arrest report a few weeks ago -- the same disc. Hey, maybe the arresting officer knows what it means. Who would that be? Why, the only cop in Gotham, apparently. Barbara dials Reese up on his cell phone and tells him to check out his computer screen. Reese comments that Oracle's not much for small talk. "Hey, how ya doing, how's the job, good? Great. Computer, please," rattles off Barbara, making Dinah smile and Reese chuckle. He recognizes the disc on his screen, and Oracle asks if he knows what it is. Reese looks around the precinct all nervously before saying, "No, not really." He says the guy he arrested "lawyered up" before Reese could learn anything. So he did some investigating on his own, but all he found was some "bizarre rumours" about an underground fighting arena with women. And with everything she's seen, all the greed and evil Barbara has witnessed over the course of her crime-fighting career, it absolutely floors Barbara that "men actually pay money to watch women beat each other up?" like, maybe boxing and wrestling don't exist in New Gotham or something. ["Or lesbian porn, evidently." -- Sars] Reese says the women fight to the death, and asks why Oracle's interested, telling her that he looked for the club but couldn't find anything. Barbara hems and haws before telling him that Helena has gone missing while looking for the abducted women. Reese wants to know where she was last seen, but Barbara doesn't say anything. "Dammit, Oracle, talk to me," snaps Reese with all the steely grit he can muster, which is to say, not much. He tells her he can help, so now's not the time to play the lone vigilante routine on him. Reluctantly, Barbara asks him if he knows where Old Gotham is.
