"Ms.-Ing In Action" is the twenty-second episode of Gotham Girls.

Plot

Approaching the Special Crimes Dangerous Evidence Vault, a woman takes out a keycard. Inside, Catwoman drops in, and is surprised to see the vault opened and thoroughly ransacked—and even more surprised when the woman opens the door, sees her, and sounds an alarm. She flees the scene.

Ms.-ing in Action - Halrey and Ivy

Up above, Batgirl is distracted from chasing Catwoman when (berating herself for leaving it on) she receives a call from her father on her cell phone. When the criminal escapes on a stolen motorbike, she gets into a cab, telling the driver to follow her—and drives right by Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, who are on their way to Arkham Asylum at Harley's request to break in and visit the Joker.

Batgirl changes targets, and a new chase begins, even as she continues talking to her dad—but there is no longer anybody at the other end. A secretary, Dora, tells her that he just vanished. Batgirl is incredulous until she finally notices that the cab driver is gone, too, and that the taxi is out of control.

Meanwhile, on the road to Arkham and much to Harley's distress, Ivy races straight toward a wall, behind which there are scheduled to be a group of male inmates working out. Making creative use of a giant plant, she jumps the car over the wall.

Ms.-ing in Action - Men are gone

Batgirl barely manages to regain control of the car in time to avoid running off a cliff, and picks up the phone to find the new voice of Acting Commissioner Caroline Greenway, another woman, who informs her that her father is "gone". In Arkham, Ivy and Harley, having landed in the workout area, look around at the distinct lack of male inmates, as snowflakes begin to fall. Greenway tells Batgirl that all the men in Gotham have disappeared, as Harley catches a snowflake, sadly repeating, "Puddin'...?"

Interactive Segment

Clicking a bat near the beginning reveals a memorial on the cornerstone of the Gotham police department: "Dedicated to our heroes who lost their lives, September 11th, 2001, in the service of the citizens of their beloved city".
