The issue opens with a juxtaposition of Selina’s current predicament (falling from what appears to be a couple thousand feet above Gotham) with a flashback in which Gwen advises young, tu-toned haired Selina that sometimes the best heists are the ones that go wrong. That advice sets the stage for the entire issue.
Falling through the air, Selina manages to snag a girder from a construction site with her whip. Unfortunately, the girder is loose and it turns, sending Selina crashing into the site. Injured and in grievous pain, she’s confronted by Reach, who identifies her power as “anti-gravity beams”. Okay. It seemed like the blue plasma-like beams that shoot out of her hands do a little more than hold things up in the previous issue, but, I guess, anti-gravity beams it is. As Selina struggles to pop her dislocated shoulder back into place, Reach offers to let her go in return for a favor. True to form, Selina refuses and proceeds to kick the crap out of Reach. Reclaiming the sack of money she’d stolen from drug dealers, Selina walks off, reflecting on the hits and misses of tonight’s heist.
Back at GCPD, Detective Alvarez keeps pressing the matter of the seventeen open robbery cases, which he believes were all committed by Catwoman. The lieutenant, however, will hear none of it. Confused, Alvarez watches to see the lieutenant heading into a secret meeting with three other detectives. He listens in and learns that these men were the ones who hired a meta (Reach) to help filter money they themselves have stolen from evidence. Alvarez realizes he’s surrounded by dirty cops, and the reader realizes that what Selina has gotten herself mixed up in is far bigger than a drug deal.
Selina herself realizes this when she counts the money, finding $425,000 instead of the $10,000 she’d expected. She knows that she’s stolen from a big fish and that she should keep her head down for a while, but, being Selina, she can’t. Instead, she treats herself to a spa day. However, the bill she gives one of the spa workers is flagged as stolen. The spa’s manager calls the cops, who arrive to find Selina, now dressed in Catwoman gear, escaping the building. Her escape doesn’t go as planned, however, for the streets outside are barricaded by the police. Selina thinks she can get away by driving her bike through the snowy park, but finds that it, too, is filled with waiting cops. A bullet flattens Selina’s tire and she spills out into the snow, realizing now that the money she stole belongs to dirty cops. The issue ends with Selina surrounded by cops, all pointing their guns at her.
