In the meantime, the conflict between the Penguin and Sofia comes to a head when the former grabs the latter and starts to subject her to torture at the hands of a specialist known as “the Dentist.” However, Sofia mentions to the Dentist that her spies are everywhere and unless she is freed unharmed, his family will die. The Dentist complies and frees Sofia. However, Tabitha, Barbara, and Selina grab Sofia and take her to their weapons shop.
The idea is that in exchange for the three women being able to operate without interference, Penguin can have Sofia back. Penguin readily agrees, but then Barbara starts to suspect that he folded too easily. Sofia agrees and proposes that they ally. While this is being discussed, one of Penguin’s men shows up and shoots a rocket into the weapons shop, blowing it up.
Sofia is next seen with Gordon, tearfully informing him that Penguin wants to kill her and that he needs to use the police to take him down. Realizing that would simply replace the Penguin with Sofia as the crime lord of Gotham, Gordon refuses. Instead, Gordon proposes that Penguin will no longer be able to license crime but will be left at liberty. In exchange, Sofia will be sent home on a train. The Penguin agrees to the arrangement.
However, the Penguin finds out that his young protégé, the mute orphan Martine, has been kidnapped. The new alliance of Sofia, who has escaped from the train, Barbara, Tabitha, and Selina, have him and will exchange him for them being allowed to operate freely. Penguin agrees, sends Martine to the car, and promptly blows it up, thus removing what leverage the four women have. However, in a twist, it turns out that Martine is very much alive and will be sent to a place of safety.
Finally, Lee, with the help of Nygma and Grundy, is becoming a crime boss in the Narrows. She informs Nygma that his mental deficit is psychological and does not have a physical cause. Soon after being informed of this, Nygma starts to have visions of his alter ego, the Riddler, again.
Lee also has problems with another crime boss named Samson encroaching on her territory, selling protection to her people and trashing her clinic. However, the application of a little poison takes care of him.
