At the Quality Meats slaughterhouse, one of Penguin's underlings questioned it as a choice for a base of operations, with Penguin remarking on its security, making it the perfect fortress for him, as the King of Gotham City. However, the underling pointed out that he wouldn't need a fortress if he hadn't killed Theo Galavan, which put the entire GCPD after him.
Penguin argued that Galavan's power died with him, and once things died down, the cops would remember they worked for him. Pulling a gun, the woman remarked that Penguin wasn't the King of Gotham, and as the only thing he was good for was getting people killed, he wouldn't be taking the rest of them down with him.
In the midst of the standoff, a knocking on the door of the slaughterhouse occurred. With the door soon being frozen and blown open from the outside, Victor Fries walked in.
