Four Months after everything that has occurred, Bruce continues being the COO of Wayne Enterprises while leading his team as his heroic alter ego the Batman while being a parent to Jason, who has been quiet and reclusive due to his mother's unfortunate demise. Bruce contemplates going back to killing, however, he decides not to because if he does, then Lincoln would have won in the end. There has been a recent change in Bruce's personality in which he becomes more socially conscious both as himself and Batman while Jason considers him to be the bad man due to Lincoln having told Jason about how Bruce killed his foster father Franklin Claybourne and due to the nightmares he's been having about everything that happened.

Meanwhile, Lucius is hospitalized with serious injuries forcing him to retire as Batwing while Alfred is still comatose but is stable.

For the last couple of months, a criminal named Ricardo Diaz / Richard Dragon has filled the vacuum left by Tobias Whale as Gotham City's criminal kingpin and has been committing several acts of murderer and theft which is why board member Matthew Bland (John Lithgow), is using this as an excuse to run for Vice- President to ensure that he can take over as President against Bruce, saying that the Wayne Administration hasn't done anything to save this city.
