Magic Trick

They were laying low in Japan for a few months while Bats and company pretended that Gotham was a big safe city again.

They knew a few people who knew a few people who had been killed by a few people, and, eventually, they were in a polite Tokyo nightclub, talking to polite Tokyo yakuza, with Harl's stuttering tourist Japanese dueling with the soft soothing responses of a trained lawyer.

Joker leans over to the girl on the right, teenage thing with a schoolgirl uniform and a carefully protected sword and whispers "Wanna see a magic trick?"

Go-Go just smiles.
