Bruce does some more stupid things this week as he thinks that he can handle killing Malone on his own. He uses Selian to get him a gun and Alfred to get his location. He has no regard for his actions and he doesn’t think about what can come of it. There are a lot of red flags that he ignores and it can’t spell 100% success for him at the end. Matches Malone is not what Bruce had expected especially since he barely remembers killing them. Malone is not what Bruce expected as he seems like he wants to get murdered which leaves a difficult decision for Bruce. Twist of a story has Bruce now living on the streets with Selina while he learns how the rest of Gotham lives.
The experiments seem to be working on Penguin, but it could all be a ploy. Penguin could be acting that way so that he can stop being electrocuted. It certainly would be something that I would do. Penguin gets found sane, he even has the certificate to prove it. He gets released back into Gotham. The surprising thing to come out of this is that Strange’s assistant, Peabody, isn’t totally on board with the decision.
