Morning breaks over Gotham City. Dinah wakes to see Alfred -- played by Ian Abercrombie, also known as Mr. Pitt from Seinfeld -- standing above her. "Morning, miss," he says. He's carrying a selection of clothes in her size. "I trust you will find them adequate," he says. He makes a face (albeit a restrained one; he is a butler, after all) and suggests she take a shower. I guess that on television, spending one night on a couch makes you bag-lady dirty, even if you look like a Neutrogena ad. As he crosses the room to where Barbara's already up and computing, he asks Dinah how she likes her eggs ("scrambled," she says) and tells Barbara he restocked the fridge in the apartment. "It was rather alarmingly empty," he says. She thanks him, and he says there's little enough for him to do at Wayne Manor. "I keep hoping Miss Helena will change her mind and come live there," he says. I bet you do, you old dog. He calls it her "birthright," but Barbara says Helena won't accept anything to do with Wayne money. "I'm lucky she can handle the trust paying for the equipment in here." Alfred says, "This time of year is always difficult," referring, I suppose, to the anniversary of her mom's death. "I don't know what to do; she won't let me in," says Barbara, but this is the all-knowing, frank butler Alfred. "I meant for both of you," he says, and Barbara pretends she's fine. "Dinah's a very gifted girl, if I'm not mistaken. Quite interesting," he says, but Barbara assures him the arrangement is only temporary, earning a look from Alfred. "You're being superior again," she accuses. "Perish the thought," he says. Barbara then tries to convince herself not to let Dinah stay. "This is no place for a kid. What would she do, anyway?"
Dinah, already showered and changed -- apparently one of her metahuman powers is super-showering -- interrupts to ask about another fake-o newspaper clipping on another computer screen, with the headline "Local Businessman Killed in Bus Accident." "Are you guys investigating this? Because I was there when he died, and it wasn't a suicide." Dun dun dun! Commercials.
