The opening narration is back this week, presumably just to annoy the viewers. And we also get a bit of a narration scare; after Alfred finishes up, we swoop through the CGI city and hear the sounds of somebody getting their butt kicked, and then what initially sounds like a Huntress voice-over. "Sometimes I just want to be like other girls," we hear, as she cleans a mugger's clock in a back alley. Turns out, though, she's just talking to Oracle back at the Clocktower. Oracle asks why she'd want that, since "normality's overrated." Is everybody taking notes? No? Well, pay attention, because this normality thing is going to be pounded into our heads for the next hour. As Huntress essentially toys with the mugger, she wonders aloud if having a social life is too much to ask for. Oh, and Huntress appears to be regressing as far as line delivery goes this week. "How am I supposed to meet a regular guy, when I spend all my evenings body-slamming scumbags?" This is different from the dating scene how? She drops from the fire escape on which she's perched and knocks the mugger down. "Are you feeling okay? This doesn't sound like you," says Oracle, who, for the supposed brains of this outfit, doesn't seem to pay much attention. Did she miss the first two episodes? You know, the ones in which Huntress griped incessantly about the unbearable crumminess of being metahuman? Including a specific complaint about having to snag some lung tissue for analysis on a Friday night? What I'm wondering is how this does not sound EXACTLY like Helena? Huntress picks up the victim's wallet -- which is the size of a small piece of carry-on luggage -- tosses it back to him and complains that she can't even find anyone "decent enough to rescue," at which point it would have been totally appropriate for the victim to flip off Helena for insulting him. But he just clutches his should-be-equipped-with-wheels "wallet" and runs away.
Huntress turns back to the mugger, who has stood up and is now sticking out his tongue, so maybe Huntress will get to go on a date after all. "Okay, that's just rude!" she says, right before the mugger spits some greenish stuff at her. She twists to avoid it, but the toxic loogie nicks her jacket and burns a hole in it, as well as in the dumpster behind her. Now she's pissed: "Oh, no. You do not mess with the outfit," she says. So she busts the guy in the gut and tosses him behind a dumpster, then starts whining about how hard it is to find clothes that look sexy. I guess that explains the lace trench coat from the first episode. But we're not done yet -- the mugger comes flying back out from behind the dumpster and crashes to the ground, which Helena thinks is odd because normally bad guys don't "bounce." This guy, though, is dead. "What the hell happened to you?" says Helena, just before the bat swoops us into the opening credits, and then commercials.
