Back at the Clocktower, Helena's telling Barbara that she tried to warn Reese about his new partner, but the dude hung up. And she says Claude's "as good as [her]." Then she makes the incredibly obnoxious statement that "one day [Frosty's] making frozen margaritas, the next day he is one." Helena tells Barbara that Gibson's going to tell everyone to lay low for a while. Barbara, who instantly nailed the abilities of Larry Sellers and Liquid Guy based on almost nothing, now wonders if maybe they're "dealing with a metahuman who can mirror other metahuman powers," even though they already know of three instances of him doing exactly that. Then Helena says she's not sure how she got away, since she crossed to the other side of the street and he just stopped, even though it actually looked like he stopped because he didn't want to expose himself to the wayward fire marshal.
No matter, as this is the sort of wildly inaccurate statement that enables Barbara to make a Big Discovery, in this case that Mimic Guy's powers have a fixed range, and based on the location where they were fighting, that range is about twenty yards. Yeah, I know. Whatever. Helena wants to know how she can beat the guy if she can't get next to him. How about you get Alfred to serve him breakfast? Then Dinah's sure to take him out with a Batarang. They discuss the fact that the presence of a metahuman gives Claude headaches. I guess they know this because he was rubbing his head with his fist when Helena first saw him. Ergo, metahumans cause him powerful headaches. I mean, it's true, but I don't know how they deduced that. But Helena points out that if they try to use the headache thing, she'll be close enough for him to mimic her powers. Barbara wants to do more "research" and come up with a plan. Let's all hope she actually comes up with one, since she doinked it so badly with Slick last time.
I guess the director just instructed Helena to go into Hothead mode, since she doesn't want to wait for a plan because "people are dying," and then has the audacity to tell Barbara, "You don't understand. You can't. You're not like me. Like us." Barbara chuckles, takes off her glasses, and relates how she overheard Wade's mom tell him at dinner last night that Barbara isn't good enough for him since she doesn't have legs that work. "Yeah, you're right, what do I know about being different," she says, while the schmaltz meter displays dangerously high readings. At this point, I rewound the tape to make sure I hadn't missed the dinner scene. Nope, not there. So a big deal is made about the dinner, a big deal is made about what happened at the dinner, but the dinner itself isn't important enough to show. Got it. Helena expresses sympathy for what Barbara went through, but cold-cocks her with the argument, basically, that you can't compare having a boyfriend whose mother doesn't think you're good enough for him with, you know, being targeted for genocide by a dangerous maniac. I daresay she has a point. "Someone's murdering my people," shouts Helena, suddenly all in touch with her meta-heritage. "I have to find him. I have to stop him," she says, walking off, while Barbara runs her hand through her hair, realizing that she and Helena never really talk anymore.
