Vampires. Not an easy notion to wrap one's head around, even for Batman. When there are no other explanations for the ritualistic murders or the bite mark on his girlfriend's neck however, it's a notion he has to accept. The question now is: what does The Monk want with Julie? Batman may get his chance to ask because Julie's about to be summoned to Niccolai's castle & he's not going to be far behind. Plus, The Monk gives a bloody demonstration to what happens to those who betray The Brotherhood.
