Having discovered that Helena is Huntress, Harley uses a machine that gives her metahuman hypnotic powers. She then hypnotizes Helena and persuades her to knock Barbara unconscious and steal an access disk. Barbara recovers and uses her subneural device to enable her to stand and fight Helena, eventually neutralizing the trance. But Harley uses the disk to gain complete control of the clock tower and, after killing Wade (recurring guest star Shawn Christian), she broadcasts the hypnotic signal to every television set in New Gotham. Working together with Alfred, Dinah and Reese, Helena must infiltrate the clock tower and battle Harley and her cohorts before they gain control of the entire city.
After a robber, Chris Cassius (Ian Reed Kesler), breaks into a chemical factory and drinks a mixture that gives him the power to turn people to stone, Barbara cancels her vacation with her boyfriend, Wade (recurring guest star Shawn Christian). Unwilling to allow Barbara to continue neglecting her personal life, Alfred the butler brings Wade to the clock tower and exposes her secret. Meanwhile, Helena goes to Arkham Asylum and interrogates a villain named Clayface (Kirk Baltz), who possesses the same abilities as Chris, and learns a shocking fact about her past. She must race to prevent Chris from killing New Gotham's most powerful people at a charity fashion show.
Concerned over the disappearance of several female metahumans, Helena investigates Malcolm Lagg (Donovan Leitch), who manages a fight club that pits metahuman women against one another as men watch. After luring Helena to a prison in Old Gotham, Malcolm captures her and injects her with a substance to make her more aggressive. While Dinah and Reese infiltrate the operation, Barbara tries to find an antidote for the drug. But Malcolm catches Dinah and injects her as well, forcing her to fight Helena. Barbara and Reese must race to save Dinah and Helena before their battle becomes deadly.
Helena refuses to attend her high school reunion, not wishing to relive the past. But when Helena's visiting former classmates are murdered one by one, Barbara persuades her to get involved. The male victims were all seen aggressively flirting with Helena in the bar where she works, and the same man, Jack Barrett (Christopher Wiehl), defended her each time. Following clues, the women pursue a skillful killer with a chameleonlike ability to blend into his surroundings. Meanwhile, Helena copes with her romantic attraction to Jack and continues hiding her true identity from Reese.
