Part 1 of the 2-part "Urban Renewal" finds the war between the OGs (Original Gothamites) and the Deezees (deserters) heating up. In the aftermath of a bombing that has Gordon and the entire GCPD on edge, time is running out for Batman to find the bomber, and the prime suspect is a man publicly fighting for the rights of the OGs.
Plus, in Part 3 of "The Jacobian," Jacob accepts Leelee's assignment to find her missing husband. And when Jacob and Leelee are attacked by a group of assassins, Jacob must rely on the most unreliable thing in his life...with startling results.
In the middle of the night, the police department investigates a fatal bombing at a Wayne Enterprises construction site. Signs point towards this being the work of militant OGs (Original Gothamites), disgruntled with the many slights and difficulties they have suffered even since Gotham returned to being part of the United States. However, OG spokesman Roberto Alonzo, a former associate of the Black Mask, points out that this is very unlikely, as Bruce Wayne is one of the few employers to have treated the OGs with the respect they deserve and given them the help they need. James Gordon comes under pressure from Mayor Dickerson, who wants an arrest quickly, both to appease the construction firms working in the city and to give him a soundbite at a press conference - in fact, he wants Alonzo arrested immediately, but Gordon will not authorize any such action without concrete proof.
Meanwhile, Batman investigates Francis Piper, a known criminal who has been seen at some of Alonzo's rallies. Even as Alonzo is arrested due to his name being used to rent the car which was turned into a carbomb, Batman discovers that Piper had posed as Alonzo, stealing his wallet, in order to cast blame on the OG leader. However, Piper claims that he does not know who hired him to do this. Alonzo is released, but he is attacked soon after leaving GCPD headquarters, and his body is strapped inside another vehicle which is blown up at another construction site, this time belonging to Coldwell and Ferris Construction.
