The Start Of Episode 6
This episode starts by introducing us to Sapphire, who is making out with Rex Mason, a security guard for her father's company. Their fun is abruptly interrupted by an alarm, as Batman races to the scene of Stagg Enterprises to see what's going on. Batman doesn't arrive in time to stop Rex from being trapped inside a hi-tech gas chamber by the intruder, but he does arrive in time to chase away the bad guy and to witness the birth of The Elephant Man, also known as Metamorpho.
A New Villain Is Born
Exposure to those gasses has altered the body chemistry of Rex Mason, and he isn't very pleased about it. He goes on a rampage through Gotham in which he demonstrates his incredible strength and new-found powers, before escaping into the sewers.
Upon analyzing Mason's cellular structure in his lab, Batman determines that he must track down this newly created monster in order to save his life and turn him into the man he used to be. With only minutes to spare before his dinner date, Batman is able to determine that Stagg himself was responsible for Mason's unfortunate transformation, it turns out that Stagg is not a huge fan of Mason spending time with Sapphire.
Mason sneaks into Sapphire's room where he's met by Batman who tells them how Stagg was responsible for this, but Mason's vulnerable state leaves him unable to handle such news. After snatching up Sapphire, he makes his escape. Using Stagg as bait, he manages to lure Mason into Stagg's building and to trick him getting back into the gas room. The antidote didn't take, Mason is destroyed, and upon seeing proof that her father was responsible - Sapphire is crushed.
Bruce Wayne, on the other hand, manages to reschedule his hot dinner date. We see her look at her phone, and it reveals that she may have ulterior motives to seeing Bruce all along...
In the final moments of the episode, we see the fist of The Elephant Man form in a sewer, leading us to believe that we haven't seen the last of him yet. Hopefully this series has a long run, since they've done a lot of teasing thus far that suggests some of these villains will be coming back later on.
