Adolescent Bruce Wayne sees his doting parents shot by a mugger. Sleezy murder squad lieutenant Harvey Bullock fails to dump the case on organized crime because of eager 'rookie' James Gordon but changes his mind when they offer to take it on anyhow. The stole pearl string is found is petty robber Mario Pepper's home, but they soon suspect the mugging to be staged and the trail leads to local mob head Fish Mooney, from Carmine Falcone's 'family'. The whole affair is clouded by the devious power struggle within the mob, which proves dangerous for the detectives too.

Toward the end of the episode Don Falcone says to Gordon: "In bocca al lupo". This is an Italian idiom ( it literally translate in "In to the mouth of a wolf" ) meaning you are wishing good luck to the person you are speaking to. See more
