By the fourth episode, things are really starting to ramp up in this dark, exciting look at the Batman franchise. In the first 3 episodes, we've been introduced to numerous Gotham City baddies including Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Time will tell how how their evil plans will intercept, and whether or not Batman will be able to keep them all at bay, but for now he's got bigger problems to worry about. Please be warned that the rest of this page contains spoilers for Episode 4 from the 1st season of Beware The Batman.
Beware The Batman - "Safe" - Recap
The fourth episode starts off during a presentation at Wayne Industries where Bruce Wayne introduces Dr. Jason Burr, and briefly talks about the Ion Cortex. Using the Ion Cortex, the world will have a surplus of power in just 5 years, as the Ion Cortex allows Wayne Industries to more effectively allocate the world's electrical resources. Very impressive technology, exactly the type of thing you wouldn't to see in the wrong hands...
As expected, this presentation is interrupted by the League of Assassins, as directed by Lady Shiva. She sends Silver Monkey and a couple of lackeys to kidnap Dr. Burr, and they would have gotten away with it except for the sly fighting of Tatsu Yamashiro, also known as Katana. She has the opportunity to kill one of the kidnappers, but spares him... Foreshadowing an event that takes place later in the episode when the League of Assassins tries to raid Wayne Manor in another attempt to kidnap Dr. Burr.
This time around, Katana spares the life of Silver Monkey after they reflect on old times, but she quickly learns the downside of mercy when Silver Monkey gains the upper hand and just about finishes her. Katana is rescued at the last minute by Batman who managed to luckily break through his own lock down security system, but quick thinking and clever tactics allow Silver Monkey to escape once again. The good news is that everyone is safe, and the Ion Cortex didn't fall into the the wrong hands. At least not yet, anyways.
The final scene of Episode 4, "Safe", takes place in the League of Assassins, where Lady Shiva and Silver Monkey are planning their next move. Most likely, we'll start to see some of the previously featured villains reappearing in future episodes, and next time around they'll be even more furious!
