Too late -- he's striking again. Thompson, for some reason, is in a gritty, grimy corner of Gotham, the area of town where fires rage unattended in big oil drums. He's bellowing into his cell phone about the deal he's closing, telling his broker to buy ten thousand shares of some pharmaceutical company that's about to get approval from the FDA for something. As Thompson turns off his car alarm, a figure in a hooded black cloak materializes by the car. Although we can't see the guy's face, apparently Thompson can, because he says, "What are you doing out here? You lost or something?" when I think if he knew the guy, his first question might have been, "What's with the cloak?" But Cloak Man just wants to offer some advice to Thompson -- try being nicer to people. To demonstrate what he means, Cloak Man grabs Thompson and puts his head through the driver's side window. "But I guess you'll have to use that advice -- in hell!" I swear to God he said that, and it's hard to be too scared of this guy when his dialogue is that bad. Cloak Man breaks Thompson's neck, drops him to the ground, and glances at the reunion invitation Thompson had out and had apparently written the stock information on. He thanks Thompson's corpse for the tip, then uses a cell phone to buy ten thousand shares of his own, then says, "That's all for now. I have a party to get to." And how weird for his broker to have to listen to the creepy Cloak Man voice. So, let's see: Cloak Man is known to his victims, is going to the reunion, has been mistreated by the victims, and is rich enough to buy ten thousand shares of pharmaceutical stock. Wonder who it could be?
Back from commercials, we get a nice shot of Helena observing the crime scene investigation from a rooftop before catching Reese alone to ask who the stiff is. He tells her the dead dude is a "hotshot Wall Street guy in from Metropolis" (nice!) and Reese says that judging from the neighbourhood, the guy "brought all his nasty habits with him," and maybe Reese should explain what that's supposed to mean, since while this guy was clearly annoying, I don't think being a "hotshot Wall Street guy" technically is a "nasty habit." Anyway, when Reese identifies the guy as Stuart Thompson, Helena visibly reacts, enough so that this time Reese asks if she knew the guy. She lies and says no, and he tells her that if this is something personal he won't tell anyone, but if she has any information about the "vic," she's got to "give that up." She just points him toward Joey's gambling problem and suggests that Reese check out that angle with Thompson. Then Reese shows her the invitation to the reunion (in a plastic evidence bag) and asks if it means anything to her. Helena says no. I'm no crime-fighter, but I think it might mean the guy was going to a high school reunion. Reese looks at the invitation for a second, we hear The Helena Exit Whoosh, and when Reese looks up, she's gone.
