Arriving at the scene of a crime, Gordon was informed by Bullock of what they were dealing with, and the two went to see Amanda Hastings' parents, where they inquired whether they knew anyone who would want to cause harm to Amanda. There they meet the Hasting family's therapist, Dr. Marks, who specialized in hypnotherapy. The two Detectives were unable to get any useful information out of Mr. Comparing the murders of the Spirit of the Goat in the past with the murders committed by the Goat's imitator, Gordon realizes that in the absence of signs of intrusion into the homes of the victims, perhaps the murderer had a set of keys to their homes, which would only be available to some of the companies responsible for providing clean services.
In the medical examiner's room, Gordon and Bullock attended the autopsy of Amanda Hastings to verify that the murder had been executed following the same exact methodology of the Goat.
After discovering that the imitator had a penny into the back of the head of Amanda Hastings, Gordon and Bullock were sent to see Bullock's former partner Dix. He theorized that Randall Milkie hadn't worked alone in the past and instead had been apart of a conspiracy. The two began to argue, and when the Detectives began to leave, Gordon was told by Dix to watch out for Bullock as he was a loose cannon and thought of himself as a hero.
They later find Ember Copley at an abandoned theater, and Gordon freed her while Bullock went after the Goat. Afterward, Gordon goes to help Bullock, knocking the Goat unconscious. After the Penguin is discovered to be alive, Gordon, attempted to call Barbara to ask her to leave the city but is forced off the phone, when Bullock punches him and attempts to assassinate him, in order to placate Falcone. Gordon is able to disarm him, and returns home and quickly defeats both Gilzean and his associate.
Fearing for Barbara's life, Gordon takes her to the bus station where he asks her to leave for a few days until he solved the situation. Essen tried to advise Gordon to leave town before he was killed because no one would help him.
A shootout between the two began, with Gordon being wounded in his side, escaping into the parking lot bleeding. While there, Gordon was almost caught by Zsaz, though an officer arriving in the parking lot gave Jim time to escape.
Though he ended up getting shot again, this time in the leg. Fortunately, Montoya and Allen arrive on the scene to rescue Gordon. Hours later Gordon woke up in the veterinary department of the Gotham University, where Dr. Thawson managed to extract the bullets.
Later, Jim and the Detectives went to Wayne Manor, where the Jim informed Bruce that if something were to happen him, Montoya and Allen would continue with the investigation into the murder of his parents. That night Jim hid out at his home while preparing his arsenal to carry out the suicide mission to arrest Falcone.
Surprisingly, he is visited by Bullock, who somewhat drunk, offers his help in the madness that occurred since he figured he was dead either way.
The next morning, the two detectives intercepted Mayor James in his limousine and used the Mayor as cover to infiltrate Falcone Manor without being executed. Falcone gave Gordon an ultimatum: trust his word or arrest him, condemning Barbra's life. Reluctantly, the detective decided to trust the word of Falcone, who was proved he wasn't lying calling for Zsaz to bring Barbara. They are later allowed to leave, as Jim had trusted Falcone.
The body of a fallen fighter is found near the river covered in black ink. The case is assigned to Detectives Gordon and Bullock, and it is later identified to be Coleman Lawson. Gordon is charged with finding out the reason Coleman Lawson had been killed, interrogating the victim's mother. Later, having exhausted all their resources, the detectives visit the black market to try and talk to a doctor responsible for dealing with wounded criminals.
After squeezing him for information, they got the doctor who treated the man with the missing thumb, after which a card for Sionis Investments fell out of his pocket. With the new lead, Gordon arrested the doctor, which only served to widen the rift between Gordon and his fellow officers, namely Alvarez. Upon returning home, Jim discovered Barbara, who totally consumed by her fear of Zsasz, holding his spare gun after drinking several glasses of wine. He then tried to calm her down. Hours later, Gordon and Bullock reach the Sionis Investments to meet with Richard Sionis, however before meeting with him, they notice several employees with wounds on their faces.
Sionis quickly denies Gordon's accusations and being involved in the murder of Coleman Lawson. Gordon does not believe in any of Sionis' excuses about the injuries of his employees, and accuses Sionis of being involved, though Sionis tells him to prove it. While leaving the office, Gordon notices a trail of blood on the floor leading to the bathroom.
When Gordon enters, he finally finds the employee whose thumb had been torn off. The two engaged each other in battle, with Gordon ending up on the floor. Fortunately when he tries to flee Harvey Bullock stops him with the door.
At the GCPD, Gordon and Bullock find out from a man missing his thumb, Adams, that Sionis ran a sort of circuit where he forced all potential employees to fight to the death for a job.
Gordon later reaches an old office complex where he finds three men locked in cages. Unfortunately, before he can release them he is incapacitated by Sionis using an electric baton. Gordon fights against the three individuals until he finally emerges victorious to the dismay of employees Sionis Investments. To everyone's surprise, Richard Sionis appears wearing a black mask and carrying a sword.
Jim is forced to dodge the attacks, and using an office object to fight back. Later, Detective Alvarez informs him that a teenage thief who had been arrested wanted to talk to him, who Gordon realized was Selina Kyle.
Jim arrives at Barbara's penthouse with Selina Kyle, finding a letter Barbara had left him, telling him that she had gone away for a while as she was still paranoid because of what had happened with Falcone. Gordon proposed a new place to keep Selina safe, Wayne Manor. Later, Gordon visits the Wayne mansion to present Bruce with the drawing of his parent's killer, also asking Bruce and Alfred to accommodate Selina in the mansion until they were able to take the case to trial.
Despite not having the support of Alfred, Bruce accepts hosting Selina. Later, Gordon, Montoya, and Allen met with the assistant district attorney Harvey Dent, for help with Wayne murder case. Dent, an idealistic lawyer with strong convictions and a desire to execute justice, states that he believes that the entrepreneur Dick Lovecraft, a rival of Thomas Wayne's, was involved with the Wayne murders. Dent announced his idea of scaring the corrupt of Gotham, and with Gordon's permission decided to spread the word about having a new witness to the Wayne case without confirming their identity.
Nygma informs Gordon and Bullock about the discovery of the distinctive plate between the remains of the bomb that went off last night, which belonged to an abandoned metal factory.
Wasting no time, the two detectives arrived at the factory where they found Hargrove working on yet another bomb. Relieved by the Detectives' arrival, he informs them that his captors had threatened to kill his brother and his brother's family, and were Russians led by a guy named Gregor Kasyanov who were trying to strike against Falcone. The Russians then arrive at the factory and started a shootout against the police as to recover Hargrove and his bomb and then escaped.
Gordon and Bullock are able to arrive on time to stop the Russians, with reinforcements, but before they could arrest the Russians, Butch, who was located in a position near there, activated the bomb placed under the van, that ends up killing Kasyanov and all his men. Later Bullock informs his partner that Hargrove and all the criminally insane inmates at Blackgate had been transferred to the old Arkham Asylum building by the order of mayor .
Jim and the rest of the police arrive at the manor and during which Bullock discovers Gordon and Harvey Dent's plan to try to solve the murder of the Waynes. This causes an argument between the two partners but Alfred quickly silences the two, because all that mattered at that moment was to find Bruce.
Jim offers that the murderer may have been sent by Lovecraft, so he asks Bullock try to find Selina and Bruce as he tried to get Lovecraft to call off the assassins. Gordon confronted Dent to find out how the assassins knew that Selina Kyle was the surprise witness of the Wayne murder case. Reluctantly, Dent confesses to leaking his name to give credibility to the rumor.
Given that Lovecraft could not be found anywhere, Dent gives Jim the addresses of several of Lovecraft's condos that he had under the name of his mistress to try to find him. Gordon went to Lovecraft's condo, and finds the entrepreneur there, fearing for his life.
Lovecraft denies having sent the murderers after Selina as they were also chasing him. At the precise moment when Lovecraft tried to reach the documents proving his non-involvement in the Wayne murder, the female assassin entered the apartment, subduing Gordon after the two engaged each other in battle. Gordon receives a call from Bullock informing him of the children's location, The Factory, where Selina's fence was based at. Standing up, Gordon begins to search for Lovecraft, finding him in his bathtub, dead, with a shot in the head, that been deliver with Gordon's gun.
Jim later arrives at the scene with other police to assist in the effort. Before the media could circulate the story of his murder, the politician decided to pass it off as suicide because of the pressure from the accusations of Gordon. The mayor then told them that one of them would be a scapegoat, picking Gordon, as Dent knew how to walk the line, whereas Gordon didn't.
When the news about Lovecraft's death is made public, Gordon is relieved from his duties as a detective and sent to work as a security guard at Arkham Asylum. Several weeks pass and Jim Gordon begins his job as a security guard for Arkham Asylum. One night in the middle of a play, Frogman Jones loses his sanity and attacks one of the actors, Royston hitting him several times before Gordons and his cohorts manage to stop it.
It being another altercation that he should have been prevented, Jim is reprimanded by Director Gerry Lang, who blames him for letting the situation happen in the first place. Moments later, Dr. Leslie Thompkins comes to the infirmary to inspect Royston and meets Jim. Amidst one of his rounds, Gordon discovers a patient in a vegetative-like state complete with a two holes on the side of his head. With the help of Dr. Thompkins, Jim discovers that someone had administered electroshock therapy on the patient, completely frying his brain.
After being informed of the situation, Director Lang prohibits Gordon from alerting the police and gives him the task of finding out who committed the act. As someone needed the keys from a guard to access the patient's cell, Gordon investigates his fellow officers, namely Steven Wenger, to discover which one of them lost their keys, with Wenger confessing that he lost his during the riot during the play the previous night. Alerted by Gordon's call Bullock visited the Asylum, happy to see his former partner.
Gordon later discovers that the person who had been attacking the inmates should be based in the basement area, so Nurse Duncan offered to escort him there. On the way to the basement, Jim begins to notice her strange behavior, and the situation worsens when the two cross paths with Dr. Thompkins who offered to accompany them. Suddenly, Duncan pushes Leslie towards Gordon and begins to flee in terror.
Soon after, Harvey calls Gordon to inform him that Dorothy Duncan was actually a patient. Duncan releases all of the inmates from their cells, starting a riot, and Jim and Leslie on, manage to gate the inmates off and save themselves. However, the Medical Examiner comes in to tell Essen that he had found electroshock therapy marks on Duncan's head as well, proving she was not the culprit after all.
Arriving at the Asylum, Gordon finds a note from Gruber in the hand of a dying Director Lang, in which he expressed his wishes for the two to meet again. Jim makes a deal with Commissioner Loeb that gives him 24 hours to go after Gruber. If he succeeds, he will be reinstated into the police force, though if he didn't, both him and Bullock would both be at Arkham.
Gordon is visited by Arkham nurse Leslie Thompkins. She tells Gordon that Arkham Asylum is getting over the incidents and tells him about an inmate who curses dolls of people for inmates, giving him a doll that resembled Don Maroni.
Later, Gordon and Bullock speak to Maroni about Buchinsky and want to use him as bait for the Electrocutioner. Gordon uses a beverage to short out Electrocutioner's gear. Electrocutioner and Helzinger are then arrested. Gordon is then reinstated into the police force by Commissioner Loeb. A police officer then informs Gordon about the shootout at Mooney's nightclub.
Gordon is later introduced to Arnold Flass. The three meet with a night janitor named Leon Winkler, who was a witness in a public homicide. When at the police station, Winkler is visited by a mysterious person who kills him.
Edward Nygma states that the weapon used on Winkler was an ice pick. Gordon suspects that a cop is behind this, as Sarah Essen tells him not to take action without her say-so. Gordon, after interrogating some guards, confronts Officer Delaware upon his role in the guard duty and finds the same drugs in Delaware's car that were on the murder victim.
Due to the illegal search, Essen removes Gordon and Bullock from the murder investigation. At a restaurant, Bullock tells Gordon that Flass and his men have taken possession of drug stash houses and that Flass is protected by serious people.
Gordon and Bullock arrive at a stash house where Delaware and his men claimed that they have the search warrant on this stash house. Gordon and Bullock are later told by Essen that Internal Affairs has ruled Winkler's death as a suicide and advises that they move on to the next victim. Gordon visits Cobblepot at the nightclub where he meets Cobblepot's mother, Gertrud.
Gordon asks Cobblepot as a favor to find anyone with info on Flass. Gordon is later given the evidence, the tape and the ice pick, by Gabe. Later in an alley, Delaware pleads to Gordon not hurt his family. Gordon realizes that because of the "favor" Copplepot did him, Delaware thinks Gordon is a threat to them.
Gordon arrives at Barbara's penthouse and finds that Selina Kyle had been staying there in his ex-fiancee's absence. Soon after, he is told by Selina that she didn't actually see the Waynes' killer, and had lied. After hearing this, Gordon visits Bruce at Wayne Manor to confirm what he had been told. However, Bruce decides to relinquish Detective Gordon from his promise, as after several months had passed, Gordon hadn't found any leads.
Going to the furniture factory that made the chair used to hang Adam Jodowsky , Gordon, and Bullock, to the surprise of both, find a guy, wearing a pig mask, torturing the kidnapped man. After shooting the masked man, Bullock decides to visit Scott's phobia group to give the good news, however, Gordon insists on further research to make sure the man they shot wasn't working alone, because of the post-mortem incision made in Jodowsky's body before being killed.
Without being able to call upon Nygma's expertise, Jim uses the case as an excuse to see the Leslie Thompkins. He later confessed this to her after she arrived dressed up and the two kissed before Gordon had to leave. Harvey throws himself into the pool to save the woman, and Jim chases Tod into the boiler room, simultaneously shooting at him.
Unfortunately, Crane gets away after closing a door, cutting Jim off. Thompkins arrives at the GCPD to inform Gordon that the murderer extracted the adrenal gland, commonly known as the fear gland to extract all its hydrocortisone. Jim then tells her that there will possibly be more work for her, as their medical examiner had been fired for stealing body parts. Excited by the offer, to which leads to dinner between the two, she decides to kiss Gordon passionately uncaring that they'd be seen by the rest of the police department.
In the city, Jim and Leslie concluded their third date, with Leslie informing him that she was hired as the new medical examiner of the GCPD, much to Gordon's surprise. The next day, while the police search the home of the most recent victim of Crane, Bullock gives Gordon the rundown once he arrived.
Gordon and Bullock later go to Aquinas High School intending on finding out information about Crane, and the headmaster, Judith Barthel informs them that Crane was very overprotective of his son Jonathan and that his wife died several years ago in a car accident. She also gives them an academic paper that Crane had written where he explained his theory that the fear was an evolutionary failure in humans and was trying to cure himself of it.
Later, Jim turned down Oswald's offer of attending the nightclub and though Penguin offered to help him with his case, Gordon rejected the offer telling him he didn't want him coming to the GCPD again. Offended, Penguin tells Jim that he shouldn't treat him that way and that he'd one day soon he'd need his help.
Jim later draws a line with Lee regarding PDA during the job, though the two are interrupted by Bullock. Gordon and Bullock discover that Crane's real fear he had been generated by the guilt of not being able to save his wife from a fire that had occurred in their house, years ago.
With that information, they decide to visit the old Crane house. Gordon and Bullock arrived at the old house Crane house, where, Gerald and Jonathan attempted to escape through the courtyard.
Stopping at the hay under the Scarecrow, Gerald decided to conclude the injections and administered a large dose to Jonathan that him convulsing wildly before in fear of the Scarecrow. Fearing nothing, Gerald takes his gun and shoots at the Detective, though they quickly shoot him down. Finding Jonathan convulsing, Gordon quickly tells Bullock to call an ambulance. Later, Jim visits the hospital to check on the state of Jonathan Crane. There, Doctor Anderson informs him that the injections had altered Crane's brain activity, leaving him in a constant state of terror.
Jim and Leslie share a date together at Haly's Circus but the date abruptly ends when clowns burst onto the scene led by Owen Lloyd who engages Alphonse Grayson. Interrogating those involved in the fight Jim fails to find anything out, however, Leslie manages to find out through John Grayson and Mary Lloyd that it had been about a snake charmer named Lila Valeska.
Fearing that something might have happened to the woman, Jim and Leslie visit her son, Jerome Valeska, to find out the whereabouts of his mother. Suspicious, Jim uses her snake to guide them, they soon after manage to find Lila's dead body covered by a blanket. Investigating Alphonse and Owen separately, Gordon and Bullock discover that the grudge between the two families dated back to an accusation of a stolen horse.
Concluding that they had all the alibis at the time, Jim decided to release the rest of the circus members after warning them not to fight anymore, as they had seen where it had gotten their friends, using Alphonse and Owen as examples. At that moment an elderly, blind, psychic, named Paul Cicero arrived before Gordon and Leslie to deliver a message Lila had supposedly sent him from beyond the grave. Later, Jim and Leslie visit the park at night and to the surprise of them both of they immediately find an old ax blood covered with symbols carved into the handle.
The detective immediately recognized the symbols as belonging to Hellfire Club, an old satanic cult who used to perform ritual murders. Knowing that the so-called messaged he had received from Lila had been invented and that the ax was planted to divert the investigation, Jim proceeds to accuse him of covering up the real murderer, who was someone close to him.
After that, Jerome was summoned into the room, with Gordon then revealing that Cicero was Jerome's biological father, and accused Jerome of being the real murderer. Though he initially denied it, Jerome began to feign crying before chuckling evilly.
With joy, Jerome confesses to the murder of his mother. Gordon and Bullock are assigned to solve the theft carried out by the group and after learning that a smoke bomb had been set off in the bank a week previous, they decide to analyze previous recordings of the theft to try to find if it was connected to the robbery.
Thanks to security recordings, Gordon discovers that one of the robbers had Gus previously visited the bank to time the reaction time of the police. Fortunately for them, the robber neglected to take off his work uniform for the auto shop where he worked at, Kleg's Auto. At the GCPD, with the help of the witness, Gordon and Bullock manage to find Clyde Destro, however, instead of arresting him they let him go in order to follow him and track down the rest of the Red Hood Gang.
Gordon and Bullock quickly enter the apartment after hearing gunshots and call an ambulance for the Destro, and there they discover that the band had been robbing banks that denied Destro loan's in the past and that the next target would be the International Savings Bank of Gotham. They begin a gun shootout, though they are all gunned down. After which, Jim receives a call informing him about what happened to Alfred. Upon reaching the hospital he finds Bruce next to Alfred's bed.
The two then embrace, with Jim trying to comfort Bruce. At the hospital, Jim checks in on Bruce and Alfred. Gordon questions them about who attacked Alfred, though to no avail. When Gordon visits Loeb, he showed Gordon footage where Bullock states that he presented false evidence against Flass. Gordon and Dent interrogate an ex-partner of Loeb's, Charlie Griggs, in order to find out what exactly Loeb has on some police officers.
After questioning him, he tells them to go see a Chinese bookkeeper by the name of Xi Lu. Later, Gordon and Dent enter Xi Lu's den and try to get him to show them where Loeb's stash of evidence is, but Xi Lu has the workers who were counting the money attack Gordon and Dent with knives.
They later escape when Bullock crashes through a gate with his car and rescues them. With Bullock's help, Gordon they learn from Griggs that the only person who knew where Loeb kept his files was Falcone. Gordon and Bullock visit's Oswald's to ask the Penguin for his help and he agrees after Jim promises him a favor. That night Gordon, Bullock, and Penguin reach an old farm located on the outskirts of the city, there they are welcomed in by an elderly named Jude and Marge, under the guise of being a security team sent to check out the farm's security.
Unexpectedly, the elderly couple, having figured out that they were not who they claimed to be, opened fire against them however they managed to subdue them quickly and went to check the attic. In the attic they discover Miriam Loeb, the daughter of Commissioner Loeb, living there. After having a long talk with Miriam, who had serious mental issues, the detectives end up discovering that she was the real killer of her mother. The next day at his office, Gordon confronted Loeb with the truth. Overwhelmed by the turn of events, Loeb offers to resign, however, Jim tells him not to, as then he'd have to deal with someone else who was also Falcone's lap dog.
But with Loeb, at least he had leverage. In exchange for keeping Miriam's whereabouts secret, Jim demands Arnold Flass be tried fairly, Loeb's dirt on all of the GCPD officers sent to Dent, though he is only given Bullock's file, and for Loeb to support him as president of the policeman's union. Jim is approached by Officer Len Moore, a young idealist who looked up to Gordon.
Len, knowing Gordon's reputation of closing cases, asks him to look into the case of a girl found dead to bring justice to her family.
Somewhat reluctant, Gordon promises to check the case out, however, when Leslie sees the report she is horrified to discover that the victim, Grace Fairchild, is close to her age, and was last seen alive in a bar located in her neighborhood.
Determined to find Grace's murderer, Jim gets a list of the bars in Leslie's neighborhood, and before leaving, having convinced Bullock to join him, he asks Nygma find evidence from the case that was apparently missing.
Gordon and Bullock begin to go to bars looking for information about Grace, eventually finding a barwoman who remembered seeing her leave months ago with a "hot" date. At the GCPD, Nygma informs Gordon that he couldn't find the missing evidence, though he did find a photocopy of an image of a hand-painted broken heart.
Seeing this, Bullock informs Gordon that they were dealing with a known serial killer. Gordon is informed by Bullock of the history of the serial, known as the Ogre, who kidnapped young and beautiful women and then killed them. The reason he hadn't been stopped, however, was because the Ogre used to take revenge on those who tried to catch him, killing their loved ones.
Realizing that he had been setup, Gordon and Bullock go to find Officer Moore. Gordon and Bullock interrogate Moore until he confesses that he brought the case to Jim under the orders of Commissioner Loeb. Afterward, Harvey recommends that Jim stop looking into the case, and no one knew he was, though Jim refused. Loeb then entered the GCPD building, and Gordon is overwhelmed by rage, leading him to confront Loeb and in the presence of his fellow officers, he tells Loeb that he intends to stop the Ogre, then afterward he was coming for Loeb himself.
Trapped by the desire to stop the serial killer and protect Leslie, Jim asks his girlfriend to leave town, but she refuses.
Mueller reveals that the first victim was a nurse at a cosmetic surgery clinic. At the plastic surgery clinic, Gordon and Bullock meet with Dr.
Cushman to find out about the first victim of the Ogre, which was recommended to them by a client. Unfortunately to find out the client's name they would need a court order. When he begins to approach it, the car starts and tries to run him over but he fails. Back at the GCPD, Gordon reports to Essen what happened, when he suddenly got a call ordering from the Ogre ordering him to stop investigating him. Telling him that if Gordon kept on his current path he'd kill someone that Gordon loved.
In response to this threat, Gordon held a press conference to make the Ogre's killings known. Later, Gordon and Bullock arrive at the van Groot home and quickly find a man trying to hang himself.
Gordon interrogated Jacob Skolimski and found out that the Ogre was actually his son, and that his son wouldn't be capable of murder. Skolimski then informed them that his son Jason, being treated affectionately by Mrs. Van Groot, became convinced that she was his biological mother. When she refused to recognize it and give her his surname, he killed her and devoted himself to finding a woman that would love him unconditionally.

The students choose each other's characters for them. Cat's persona created by Beck works as an 80's comedian who's very annoying.
Sikowitz's nephew Jason then enters from another room, and Tori in character, a police officer obsessed with Raisin Bran that wears a lot of red lipstick flirts with him. When Jason mentions he'll be going to the Moxi to see a movie with his friends, Cat breaks character voluntarily in order to go with him. Meanwhile, Mr. In Beggin' on Your Knees , Cat begins getting calls from North Star , an emergency help line for people that have been in car accidents.
Believing that she is really helping, she continues to take the calls, but never really gets the paramedics to come to anyone in need. She also has the talent to find out people's exact measurements since she designed an exact replica look for Beck. In Tori Gets Stuck , she is seen with Tori in the hospital. Robbie was hurt but he believed her, but when Rex convinced him, he thought that Cat was lying and got angry. Robbie confronted Cat twice about it and left Cat upset right before Tug came and showed off his hat.
The plot line between Robbie and Cat was never really resolved after that. In Locked Up! In Helen Back Again , Cat auditions again for Hollywood Arts by doing a short acting scene, then juggling, then singing a very fast, short song whilst dancing. She, along with the others, passes her audition, though she seems to have come the closest to failing. In Who Did It to Trina?
On opening night, Trina's harness breaks and she falls, and the set crashes down on her. Questions then arise about whether the mishap was truly an accident or intentional. Robbie says that Cat could have done it, because she was mad at Trina for flirting with him. In Tori Tortures Teacher , it is Sikowitz's ten year teaching anniversary at Hollywood Arts, and the gang tries to help him celebrate by taking him to a theater. As well as this, Trina runs into a hot senior named Shawn Becker , who she tries to make a pizza for to impress him.
She and Cat take a frozen pizza from the Vega residence and disguise Trina as a pizza delivery girl. The first time, he refuses to eat it because he is allergic to bell peppers; and the second, Trina finds out he has a girlfriend.
She gets mad, and ends up throwing the pizza against the wall. Later on, Cat, and Jade try to help get Sikowitz a new girlfriend by auditioning in a little scene. In Jade Gets Crushed , Robbie tries to help Tori prepare for her Tech Theater Test by teaching her how to use tech equipment and practicing with her using cutouts of Cat which she finds out about by "bouncing" into the room while they are practicing.

In Terror on Cupcake Street , Sikowitz , Cat, and the gang about a big parade, and that he wants them to make a float for them, and perform in. Through an app on Robbie 's PearPad, Cat is randomly chosen to pick the theme for the float.
She decides she wants to make a cupcake float, and the gang stays up almost all night building it. When they try to reach the "Parade parade" however, the float breaks down on a deserted street full of thugs. Tori, however, manages to find help to fix the float though the gang lost Sikowitz. Robbie is Cat's Secret Santa and gets her a cotton candy cart and a man that follows her around for a week, which she loves and thanks him by giving him a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. At first, she makes him a miniature ceramic guitar, but she decides it's not good enough after seeing Robbie's gift for Cat.
He takes away their PearPhones and forces them to sit in the library all day. They ask Mr. Dickers what's for lunch, and he says that he has a plate of tuna. They decided to call Trina and have her sneak tacos into Tori's locker, and Jade wastes no time going over to harass Cat about the fact that she has never eaten a taco and keeps telling her to admit she is a vegan.
Tori gets her to stop by threatening to unfriend her on TheSlap. They end up sneaking out to go get the tacos, but they are constantly almost spotted by Mr. Tori decides to distract Mr.
Dickers so the others can get back to the library. Dickers catches her while she is singing Make it Shine very loudly and locks her in the janitor's closet, but she escapes through a clearly marked passageway.
In the library, Jade accuses Robbie of being vegan because he's not eating his taco, and Cat and Robbie try a taco for the first time. They also talk about their parents and question whether or not they will end up like them someday.
Tori also reveals that she can shoot a bow and arrow with her bare feet. Cat gives Robbie her chewed bubblegum, which he then puts in his mouth. She rides the bunny and Cat proves surprisingly adept at the eponymous club, completing the Balls of Pain without getting a scratch.
However, when they get there, and the show is about to start, the producer who is in charge is not happy with the couples Sinjin chose because of their looks. When Sinjin tries to ask Beck and Jade a question, they start arguing. This causes them to get a bad score, and they get voted "The Worst Couple".
This causes them to question their relationship. Beck drags Jade into the janitor's closet to discuss this with her, and they drag Cat into their fight. She makes Cat think that them spending time together was her idea, and posts on TheSlap that she has a date to make Beck jealous.
However, while there, Jade starts touching a lot of things, such as a human skull and Elvis Presley's signed guitar that the owner has hanging from the ceiling. The hanging fixtures on the guitar abruptly, snap after Jade messes with it, breaking the instrument into two pieces and also shattering a window.
Cat then calls Robbie to come over and fix it and he brings Beck with him. They call a window repair company, and the guitar and window are fixed. Robbie then goes to check out the antique human skull Jade was looking at earlier.
Jade tells him to put it back and they fight over the it, but the skull ends up falling out of their hands and breaking the glass coffee table. Moreover, the guitar falls from the ceiling again. Cat begins to cry, thinking they will get in a lot of trouble, and the boss of Cat's mom rings the bell, asking to come in since he forgot his key. Cat, still sad and worried, responds with a "Kay-kay" and pushes the button, which opens the door. Suddenly the California Earthquake occurs and more things break.
The boss comes in and asks if everyone is alright, thinking that all the damage is caused by the earthquake, and is glad that Coober the puppy is fine. Cat is about to tell him to the truth, but Jade, Robbie, and Beck subtly convince her against it.
After driving Cat's brother's convertible through a horrible rainstorm with a broken top, they stop at a gas station only to find a bag of fake feet in the trunk of the car, which causes Cat to state that her brother is "weird.
Mona then proceeds to spray the girls with a squirt gun and send them off. When Cat stays over at Tori's house, there is a news report about Cat's candle causing a fire at Mona Patterson's house, in which they stated that Mona said something about a "cat with red fur". Tori quickly changes the channel. Afterwards, various students ask Cat and Robbie to sing bad news songs to people to deliver bad news without making them too sad. Even though it worked for Tanner, Beck and another kid, it didn't work for Trina, who smashes Robbie's guitar after he and Cat tell her that her date stood her up.

He keeps her from eating or even going near it, and won't let anyone give her any. However, at the end of the episode, Oliver and Cat are seen hiding behind a dumpster eating bibble. In Crazy Ponnie , Cat accidentally waxes Jade 's eyebrows off during an evening where they are hanging out, so Jade runs around trying to get back at Cat. Jade takes it so far as to actually attack an unknowing Cat in Sikowitz 's class. When Cat falls asleep at study hall, Jade cuts off all of Cat's hair. In The Blonde Squad , Tori , Jade , and Cat decide to go to Nozu after a day of filming Beck 's new movie called "The Blonde Squad," but don't take off their blonde wigs and their blue contacts because Tori wants to know what it's like to be blonde.
At Nozu, Cat meets a cute boy named Evan Smith on her way to the bathroom and they sit down together and chat. The next day, Cat is happier than usual due to her date and gives out free hugs, explaining her day to Tori and Robbie.
When Tori asks Cat how Evan reacted to discovering what Cat really looked like, Cat becomes confused and realizes that after talking to him for five hours, she forgets to tell him she is a red-headed, brown-eyed girl. Afterwards, Cat starts to freak out and cries, worrying about Evan's thoughts on her real self. Tori and Robbie constantly tell her that she is beautiful and she is overreacting, and when Cat talks to Robbie about Evan, Robbie gets jealous. Killua is initially intimidated by Silva but slowly opens up.
He then asks his son about the Hunter Exam, the people he met, how he felt, and more. Killua recounts his adventures, after which Silva enquires if he would like to see his friends. Killua hesitates, but after Silva acknowledges that he is his own person and not a mere extension of him, Killua responds affirmatively. Silva has him promise that he will never betray his friends and lets him go. Kikyo attempts to stop him, but his glare causes her to desist.
He orders Gotoh not to follow him and leaves the Zoldyck estate behind. He confirms Kurapika has guessed the butler's coin trick correctly and criticizes Gon for requesting a tourist visa instead of relying on his Hunter License , who states he will not use it until he punches Hisoka in the face, although he does not know where he is.
Kurapika reveals to the three what Hisoka told him during the Hunter Exam. They agree to meet again in six months, on September 1 st , in Yorknew City. Kurapika and Leorio depart that same day, while Gon and Killua stay together. Killua confronts Gon about his future plans and makes him understand he needs to train if he wants to stand a chance at landing a blow on Hisoka.
They fly to the Heavens Arena, where they can train and earn money at the same time. Gon is called to fight right after registering, and Killua tells him to simply push his opponent, since he has opened the first door of the Testing Gate, which allows him to launch his opponent out of bounds. Killua makes quick work of his own adversary.
Instead of heading directly to the th floor, he contents himself with the 50 th , as he wants to advance with Gon. The three collect their prize: each, the prize of a drink. Killua blows Gon's and Zushi's minds by listing the rewards for clearing upper floors, and by revealing he squandered the money he had made in sweets. The three wait for the announcement of their next matches in the locker room. Killua and Zushi are pitted against each other. To Killua's irritation, Zushi is made out to be the front runner.
Killua determines him not to be a threat and leisurely walks to him. He swiftly dodges Zushi's punch and strikes him in the neck from behind, earning two points. Surprisingly, Zushi gets up, unscathed. Killua repeats the attack with more power, but Zushi recovers immediately, awarding him only one point.
While Killua is bewildered by his resilience, Zushi takes a fighting stance that terrifies him, reminding him of Illumi. Wing yells at his pupil, causing Zushi to rescind the technique. The match continues as before, with Killua scoring point after pointing without managing to KO his opponent. Frustrated, Killua hits Zushi with his real power, throwing him out of the ring.
His fear of causing lasting damage is however replaced by amazement when Zushi staggers back up, only lightly affected. As he leaves the arena, he eavesdrops on Zushi apologizing to Wing, who scolds him for using Ren before the th floor. To Gon, Killua confesses that he felt from Zushi vibes similar to those his brother gave off in their confrontation.
Wanting to find out more about it, he proclaims he and Gon are shooting for the top. Killua warns Gon they might meet real contenders, but the boy defeats his opponents without difficulty. They easily advance to the th floor, where a discussion about Zushi renews Killua's interest in Ren. He comes up with a contrived plan to find out more, but Gon points out they could simply ask Zushi.
His explanation, however, is incomprehensible to them. Wing warns them against acquiring incomplete knowledge, to which Killua responds his brother is probably a student of Nen too. Killua requests a lecture, so Wing takes him and Gon to his hotel room. There, he proceeds to demonstrate the Nen of the Flame.
He asks Killua if he can kill him, who responds he lacks the power to do so. After going through the first two steps, Wing states he will kill Killua and unleashes his Ren, causing a frightened Killua to jump back. After Wing finishes his explanation, Gon and Killua leave.
Killua is certain that Wing lied, as both his power and Zushi's impossible resistance to injury were real. Not much later, the two qualify for the th floor. When Killua yells at the perpetrator to come out, a clerk turns the corner and informs them their eligibility expires at midnight. Hisoka then shows himself and pushes them further back with another wave of bloodlust, declaring they are not ready to fight on that floor yet. Despite his protests, Killua is unable to advance and cannot figure out why.
Wing appears behind the two boys and offers to teach them the real Nen. The clerk informs Killua that if he does not register by midnight, due to having failed to do so once before he will be barred from all further combat. Killua asks Wing if they can be back by midnight, to which the teacher replies it is up to them.
In Wing's room, he demonstrates the real Nen and tells them they must master Ten lest their bodies are destroyed by malicious Nen attacks. Killua wonders why Wing suddenly decided to teach them, to which he replies that everyone on the th floor can use Nen and will forcefully " initiate " anyone who does not know it.
He opens their Aura Nodes and, after a few seconds of panic, Gon and Killua manage to contain the leaking aura. Wing activates his Ren and directs it at them until they manage to cross the barrier of bloodlust, after which they return to the Heavens Arena and pass through Hisoka's.
Right afterward, they are confronted by three fighters: Gido , Sadaso , and Riehlvelt. Killua realizes that Gido, Sadaso, and Riehlvelt want to pick a fight on the same day as Gon to get an easy win, and Gon gives them the liberty to choose.
They receive new rooms and discover Gon's match is scheduled for the following day, March 11 th , against Gido. Killua spectates at the match in person and yells at Gon to wait for Gido to get dizzy when he uses Tornado Top.
He becomes deeply concerned about his friend when he cancels Ten. The following day, he chastises Gon for his recklessness. Wing arrives moments later to rebuke him as well, and Killua lies about how long it will take for Gon's injuries to heal. Wing thus forbids Gon from training in Nen for two months.
He speaks to Killua in private, enquiring about their goals. Killua claims not to have any interest in Battle Olympia but claims he cannot speak for Gon since he was clearly enjoying his match. He admits he is like him at times, only that he knows how to pick his battles. He assures the teacher Gon is not going to break his promise a second time.
Sensing his regret, Killua asserts they would have learned Nen anyway and refuses to resume his training until Gon can too. He returns to Gon's room to inform him that Wing has authorized him to practice the Ten of the Flame, but finds him already performing it and joins him.
One month later he books tickets for Hisoka's match against Kastro. When he goes to Gon's room, he is shocked to see his friend has already made a full recovery. He updates him on the magician's track record, noticing that despite claiming to be scared, Gon looks eager to fight him.
Wing, however, forbids Gon from seeing the match. Killua sees part of Kastro's interview and decides to check if he has a reason to be as self-assured as he sounds. He activates Zetsu and easily gets past security. He glimpses Kastro sitting in a chair, then a voice causes him to turn around, and he sees Kastro standing behind him.
He pretends he is a fan who wants an autograph, but Kastro recognizes him and enquires about his impression of him. Killua concedes he seems indeed powerful. Kastro returns the compliment, warning him to activate Zetsu when he is further away.
Killua asks him how he managed to be in two places at once, to which Kastro responds that he cannot tell a potential opponent, seeing through Killua's lie that he no longer intends to fight at the Heavens Arena, then specifies the match will give him the answer. As soon as the match begins, Killua notices an irregularity with Kastro's attacks. One month later, Killua and Gon reprise their training under Wing. The two are mesmerized by the promise string , after which Killua asks Wing what Hisoka's ability is.
He plays the tape for them and states the magician used strands of aura, but his students are unable to see them. He tells them Hisoka is concealing them with In , and tasks Gon and Killua with practicing Ren until they can see them through Gyo.
He authorizes them to fight on their last available day, which for Killua is June 9 th. After Gon, Killua, and Zushi leave Wing's room, they decide to head to Killua's to revise what they learned.
On the elevator, they sense Gido, Riehlvelt, and Sadaso awaiting them. Killua is annoyed by their persistence and leads his friends away from them. He steps out, offering to take Gon's place and give a win to each of the three. After registering, he warns them not to play dirty again but trails off before threatening them.
As he carries Zushi away, he thinks to himself that it is difficult to live without killing. That night he learns Gyo and the following day, he discovers that Gon was blackmailed too.
He pretends to have found Zushi asleep on the steps and has Wing play the tape for him, managing to see all 15 strands of aura and correctly guessing their properties.
Since both Gon and Killua have achieved a good working command of the technique, their teacher allows them to fight earlier than agreed, so Killua picks May 29 th , the date of his scheduled fight against Sadaso, pretending it is his birthday.
Later, he and Gon discuss the treachery of their three opponents, and Killua asserts they will never do anything of the sort again. On the day of his match, ten minutes before the start, he appears in Sadaso's dressing room and threatens to kill him if he ever shows up before him or Gon again. Killua is thus declared winner by withdrawal. Killua makes his presence manifest, maintaining that he simply knew he could warn them at any time. He recommends they respect the rules.
He and Gon keep training and on June 4 th , Killua observes Gon's match against Gido, taking note of his friend's fury, and later confronts Riehlvelt. The latter pulls out his whips and tries to push Killua out of the ring with "Song of Defense", but Killua easily catches them, which result in his electrocution. Unfazed, Killua flings his opponent high in the air, revealing that he can withstand electric shocks, and asks a plunging Riehlvelt if he wants him to catch him.
Riehlvelt begs him to, so Killua complies while holding onto his electric whips, knocking him out. After the match, he cautions Gon about the electricity, to which the boy responds he has already come up with a plan. Killua gets another win after Gido forfeits and watches Gon's fight with Riehlvelt. The following day Wing introduces his students to Hatsu. Through Water Divination , Killua is revealed to be a Transmuter.
After one month, Killua and Gon hone their Hatsu to the point that Wing announces they have mastered the basics. He tells Killua that he will pass the Hunter Exam without problems should he attempt it again.
He is shocked when Hisoka gives Gon a sample of his real power, and realizes he has attached Bungee Gum , although only after the fact,  as well as the difficulty of avoiding the ability.
After the match, Killua and Gon pack up and set off to Whale Island. As soon as they arrive at Gon's house, Mito brings them into line. After a hearty lunch, the two boys explore the forest. Gon takes Killua to the place where he met Kite and comes upon a welcome back gift left by Kon. When night falls, as they stargaze Killua reflects that, unlike Gon, he does not have a goal, only things he does not want to do.
Gon embarrasses him by exclaiming Killua is his first friend his age, but after a moment he reciprocates. He agrees to travel around with Gon until he finds something he wants to do. He then enquires about Gon's birth mother, to which the boy replies Mito is his only mother. They head back  and Killua falls asleep while Gon and Mito talk about Ging downstairs.
In the morning, he tries unsuccessfully to twist the iron box left by Ging open. He suggests Gon try using Nen, and the metal casing breaks, revealing an inscription like the one on Wing's promise string on its components.
Gon opens the next box with his Hunter's license. They find three items inside: a cassette tape, a ring, and a memory card. Before they listen to the tape, Killua recommends setting the stereo to record. The recorded voice turns out to be Ging's, who challenges Gon to find him.
He stops the tape before learning anything about his biological mother. After that, the tape begins rewinding itself and the stereo records over it. Killua tries to stop it by breaking it, but Ging's aura prevents him from doing any damage. In the end, both tapes are erased, which Killua understands to be a way for Ging to cover his tracks, particularly against tracking Nen abilities. They focus on the memory card next, which Killua identifies as belonging to a JoyStation.
All 30 slots of the memory card turn out to be used up by a game called " Greed Island ". Killua copies the save files before looking into the game, which is out of production. He discovers it is for Hunters only and it is sold at exorbitant prices. When they cannot find any used copies and, after posting an ad, only receive a series of scam offers, Killua phones Milluki for information on the game, trading him for a copy of the memory card.
Milluki advises him to look it up on the Hunters' website and tells him copies of the game will be auctioned off at the Southernpiece Auction. He prevents Gon from using his Hunter license on his home computer. After paying a fee they learn that Greed Island was created by Nen users, that players are transported into it, and that seven copies will be auctioned off in Yorknew City. They try to find valuable loot to sell so they can participate to the auction until their differences of opinions turn their money-raising attempts into a competition.
As they roam a market, Killua talks Gon into buying himself a phone. They are assisted by Leorio, who brings down the price of a better model. Killua observes that something that can be bought is not real treasure, which Leorio and Gon oppose. Leorio comes up with the idea of creating a conditional auction based on arm-wrestling, where contenders pay a fee to challenge Gon and win a diamond. Killua has misgivings about the method, due to the low profit.
He notices that Gon struggles for real against a young woman. By the following day, the number of challengers has already decreased as rumors began to spread. Leorio, however, is not worried, as that was his plan all along. As he predicted, they are contacted by people from the underground, who give them an invitation to a conditional auction, where the Mafia offers million for each of the seven people on a list they capture.
Killua surmises that the seven targets are Spiders and that they stole from the Mafia, which is the reason why the selection and payment methods of the conditional auction were changed. This prompts them to call Kurapika, who does not pick up the phone. Against Leorio's hope that Kurapika has already captured a few members of the Troupe, Killua reveals that his father killed one three years before, and warned his children to stay away from the Spiders.
Nonetheless, they agree to go for it. Killua suspects that even if Kurapika had any information on the Spiders, he would not share it. They check their home codes,  but they have received no useful tips.
They agree to offer a 15 million reward, with Gon pawning his Hunter license for million. His gamble leaves Killua and Leorio speechless. On September 3 rd they purchase the Southernpiece Catalog , where they learn more about the days when Greed Island will be auctioned.
After that, they post the ad with the reward. As they walk next to a stand participating in a silent auction, Gon picks up a knife, which Killua recognizes as a Ben's knife.
He has Leorio get it for them and asks Gon how he knew it was a valuable object. Gon replies he sensed aura around it, which causes Killua to determine they can use Gyo to spot objects made by master craftsmen. The two participate in the silent auction,  They find four objects shrouded in aura, and on all of them someone named Zepile has already made a bid. Killua proposes making a bid at the last minute, which allows them to win three items. They take them to the Southernpiece Auction House , but they are told their catalog has long since been completed, and suggest they try auctioning the items off at a dealers' market.
Killua has an antique dealer appraise their items, which he passes off as property he found in his parents' storehouse. The specialist they turn to is sincere in his appraisal of the lithograph and the handmade doll but lies about the worth of the wooden statue. Zepile prevents Gon and Killua from being swindled, claiming the statue is likely a vault for treasure. In return for his help, they treat him to lunch. They start to exchange information by asking one question each, with Gon and Killua explaining they only picked objects that had aura around them, and that Gon wants to get a copy of Greed Island because it might contain clues as to where he can find his father.
Zepile reveals he made the vase they two boys were bidding on when he was working as a counterfeiter and, impressed with them and smitten with Gon complimenting his craftsmanship skills, offers them his services. He opens the wooden vault and the three take the treasure to an auction preview,  where, in order to lower the price, some interested parties list ways in which the contents of the vault may have been forged.
Despite Zepile's intervention, customers hesitate. Curious, Gon asks him what doctoring methods exist, and he explains cauterization, autopsy, and ostomy. They are contacted by Leorio, who has received a real tip on the Spiders. They meet up with Leorio and the three head to the bar where Nobunaga and Machi were spotted. Killua determines they are too powerful for them to take on and realizes they want to lure someone out.
The increase in tension between the Spiders causes Gon, Killua, and Leorio to tense up. When the two prepare to leave, Gon insists on carrying on with the plan. He asks Gon if he has any shadowing experience, and he replies he followed Hisoka during the Hunter Exam, which earns him a punch from Killua.
Although the two Spiders can sense them, they cannot determine their position. When the two stop in the middle of a courtyard, Gon and Killua hide in the adjoining abandoned building. When Nobunaga glances in Killua's direction, the two attempt to escape, but find two other Spiders blocking their way. Killua runs into Phinks and tries to confuse him with his speed, but the Spider grabs him by the ankle and dodges the rocks he throws at him, as well as blocking his kick. By tearing the skin off his ankles, Killua manages to free himself.
However, Nobunaga cuts his retreat, having entered the room through the window. After asking him if he knows a Nen user who wears chains, Nobunaga demands to know if he prefers to die immediately or later. Killua accepts to be taken to their hideout. Killua spots Hisoka as soon as they enter, and they pretend not to know each other. Gon, however, reacts to his presence, but Killua manages to pass off his surprised reaction as being aimed at Shizuku, who arm-wrestled him for the diamond.
Impressed that Gon defeated her, Nobunaga challenges him at the same game. He beats him several times without effort, while talking about Uvogin and the "Chain Dude". Killua repeats they have never heard of him, so Nobunaga threatens to kill him if he speaks out of place again.
As he continues talking about him, Killua realizes the "Chain Dude" is Kurapika. When Gon, in a fit of rage, defeats Nobunaga  and is restrained by Feitan , Killua moves to help him, but Hisoka points a card at his throat.
From the Spiders' interactions, Killua understands that Pakunoda has the power to read memories through physical contact and that she has checked them while they were in the car. Nobunaga decides to keep them around until Chrollo 's return to nominate Gon as Uvogin's replacement. Gon and Killua are locked in a room, with Nobunaga guarding the only entrance.
Killua agonizes over whether he would have been able to intervene had the Spiders wanted to kill Gon, sensing he would have left him to die. As Illumi's voice echoes ominously in his mind, he rejects that conclusion and stands up, ready to fight.
After a while, while Gon tries to remember the three doctoring methods explained to them by Zepile, Killua prepares to lay down his life to let Gon escape, despite being aware their chances are extremely slim. Gon stops him by punching him, which causes them to bicker until Gon remembers the third doctoring trick, ostomy. They prepare for combat, but, instead of engaging Nobunaga, they each kick a hole in a lateral wall. Being closest to the stairs, Killua immediately runs down but returns to pick up Gon when he asks for his help to confront Nobunaga.
To get stronger so they can continue chasing the Troupe, Killua proposes asking Kurapika for help, as he believes he is the "Chain Guy".
Killua asks him for help in improving his Nen, but Kurapika refuses to help them against the Troupe even when Killua offers information in exchange. Killua eventually snaps, swearing he will do anything to get Kurapika to cooperate, before handing the phone back to Gon. Kurapika promises to call them back.
After they recount what they have gone through, Killua states that for Kurapika to have managed to kill a Spider, there must be some secret to Nen. Shortly afterward, Kurapika calls Gon to let him know several Phantom Troupe members are dead.
Killua and Gon reunite with Kurapika the following day, while the two boys have an ice cream eating contest in Dayroad Park. Troubled by the importance of the information, Killua protests against Kurapika's decision to share it with them and warns him that one of the surviving members has the ability to read memories.
Unable to predict what Hisoka will do after the death of his target , Killua incites Kurapika to go after the Spiders as soon as possible, with the additional objective of earning the reward offered by the Mafia. Gon insists on going through with it, adding he has a plan on how to access Greed Island, of which he does not want to disclose the details yet.
Finding the estimated and then corrected chance of success to be satisfactory, Killua agrees to leave the game to him and chase the Spiders, provided Kurapika assists them. He silently wishes Kurapika will turn them down, but he ends up accepting their help. Killua volunteers to monitor their hideout. He protests when Kurapika gives Gon the job of distracting the Troupe so he can abduct Pakunoda.
Killua and Leorio leave the table after Gon asks Kurapika to point a Nen blade at his heart, but return clandestinely and eavesdrop on his explanation, making themselves manifest when Kurapika seems to be about to go along with Gon's request, and demand he does the same to them.
Kurapika retorts he had no intention of stabbing anyone with Judgment Chain , and that he shared his secrets to reward his friends for their loyalty. Feeling more motivated than before, Killua stakes out the Troupe's hideout, but finds out that dozens of identical buildings have sprung out in the surrounding area,  he explores the area and updates Kurapika, who tells him to go back to his post and wait for Melody to reach him.
Sometime later, she calls him from the top of a building nearby, telling him to hang up the phone and whisper her a command so she can prove her identity to him.
Melody asks Killua if he is an assassin, which he confirms. He awkwardly states he is not helping Kurapika because he wants to, prompting her to smile knowingly. Killua verifies if Pakunoda is in the group, which also comprises of Nobunaga and Chrollo. The two follow them on the subway, which allows Kurapika to determine they are headed to the Hotel Beitacle.
Kurapika and Gon launch themselves in pursuit, with Killua unable to stop them.
