The next chapter starts with you attending the mayor candidate's campaign (Harvey). You are backing his campaign. You'll have to meet some of his guests (an aged couple, a reporter and then Falcone, supposedly a criminal). The meeting with Falcone affects your relationship with him.

After that, you will get to see the Batcave from the inside.
(Note: If you want to look at the feed, you will want to do that now. It is not required to progress though you won't be able to look at it afterwards)

Examine the Data drive (left side of your desk) and put it in the data slot in the PC. Turn the map anti clockwise, to find out that it is a map of a specific part of the city. Check out both the Codex and the Gotham feed (scroll through all of the pictures) afterwards. You will have to attend a meeting in the park with one of your old friends Oswald.

You'll need to open a new hospital afterwards. It should replace Arkham Asylum and it'll be named after your parents. In the meantime, Alfred is texting you about something urgent. Once you leave the stage you will unlock this achievement.

You'll find out that the police have a search warrant and that they are already searching your house for documents related to Bruce Enterprises. You'll find out more about the robbery that killed your parents. Reporter Vicki will also pay you a visit to get a news item about the alleged scandal.

You will meet Harvey and discuss why he didn't warn you that the police were coming. You will meet Selina, one of Harvey's friends. She is apparently Catwoman. You will have a short argument with her once Harvey leaves for a minute.

In the next scene you are Batman again going for Catwoman's contact in the Eastside district.
Examine the Scorch marks and the exploded human remains, and afterwards, link them to one another.

Then, analyze all of the remaining items in the warehouse. When examining the burnt head, move the cursor to the right until the light turns white.

Then link:

- the Incendiary Bullet to the Canister Fragment (left and right hand side of the screen).
- the Bloody Hands to the Ripped-Up Face (both right hand side of the screen).
- the Blast Epicenter to the Unscorched Area (both center of the screen on the floor).

You will learn what happened at the scene and you'll need to find the sniper's location. Choose the balcony on the left hand side (shelves). Investigate the evidence on the far right to follow the trail towards the shooter. When you encounter him this achievement will pop.

You will first have to interrogate the shooter. Police will arrive and you must choose to either stay or leave. You will have a short conversation with Alfred once you are back in the batcave. Use the batcomputer afterwards. You will have some evidence to allow an arrest of Falcone. You can either choose the journalist Vickie or officer Gordon to give the information to. You will have a meeting with either one of them, depending on who you choose. You're not properly dressed for the party where Falcone is at, so you'll have to change in the car.

You'll land on a nearby roof and you will need to observe the building. On the far right, examine the office. Afterwards, you'll need to examine all four mobsters and put down a plan of attack.

Link the:
- outer wing gunman to the modern art
- seated gunman to the large coffee table (or to the folding screen)
- entryway gunman to the marble pillar
- balcony gunman to the balcony railing

Once that's done you are set up. Choose "I'm going in". Execute the plan by doing the QTE's. You'll take down quite a few mobsters and eventually you'll have Falcone trapped on the edge of the building. Choose to either arrest (left hand side) or brutalize (right hand side) him. You'll learn that according to Falcone the Wayne's are the biggest gangsters in Gotham!
