The troubled son of Mayor William Dusk has been treated by Dr. Alan Bennett, the newly appointed head of the newly refurbished Arkham Asylum. Mayor Dusk was present during the re-opening of Arkham when he received a phone call. As soon as Dusk answered the phone call, a bio-electrical discharge surged straight to Dusk's pacemaker. Dusk died of a cardiac arrest within seconds.
Commissioner Gordon has Detective Eric Bullock do some digging around and he comes across something rather odd. The financial records of Susan Dusk, wife of the late Mayor, shows a large amount of money was being transferred monthly to a blind account for the last three years but the transfers stopped about two months ago. Bullock and Gordon question Susan about the money transfers. Mrs. Dusk tells Barbara that the account was kept private because her husband was having therapy sessions with Dr. Bennett.
Barbara is willing to give Dr. Bennett the benefit of the doubt since his father and Jim Gordon go way back. Dr. Bennett informs Barbara that the Mayor's interest in rebuilding Arkham and the therapy sessions were not meant for him but for his son Davis.
Davis was eventually captured and after a few months of rehabilitation, he was released from Arkham. During Davis' first few weeks of freedom, he was constantly met with fear and alienation. When Davis learned about the Justice Lords coming through to his world from a parallel dimension, he figured he could get his father back and make amends for the wrongs he committed.
Davis captures Dick Grayson and sends a message to Batman. Davis wants access to the portal that leads to the Justice Lords' dimension in exchange for Grayson's life. Grayson tells Rewire that Batman will never give in and in fit of rage, Davis implants an electro shock disc on Dick's chest. Batman arrives but Davis gets the upper hand on Terry. In the end, Dick attaches the electro shock disc to Rewire's chest and electro shock immobilizes Davis.
