As Styles pushes the woman to the ground, Montoya adds in that they've also lost 80% of the police force.

Two policewomen attempt to ram through the vault door.

In the vault, Poison Ivy watches as officers attempt to bust down the vault door. Harley Quinn rummages through the Joker's case locker, and begins to reminisce over his exploding shoes. However, she's interrupted by Ivy who reminds her that they don't have time to waste, and should loot and run.

Unimpressed with their current lack of results, Greenway orders for a laser cannon to be brought to her.

Batgirl arrives to the vault

Batgirl arrives to stop Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.

Harley and Ivy continue their looting, making their way through the Riddler's locker until they come across a pair of boxer shorts.

Refusing to give up, Harley launches a deck of razor sharp playing cards at the vigilante.

Ivy shocked by flash grenade

Ivy realizes she's caught a flash grenade.

As the two villainous vixens attempt to escape, Batgirl catches up to them once more and flash-bombs them, temporarily knocking out their vision. Unable to steer straight, Harley runs her cart into Two-Face's locker. Reaching in, she grabs a multiplier-ball and throws it at Batgirl. In the commotion, the door is knocked off of Mister Freeze's locker. Finally blocking the barrage of balls with one of Penguin's umbrella, Barbara unleashes the volley back towards Harley and Ivy.

Dora sweats

Commissioner Gordon?"
