* RealTime: The episode took place in real time, with frequent shots of clocks counting down to a dramatic explosion. The episode came to be because the network wanted to see an episode showing a day in the life of Batman, hence the numerous events that pile up in the fifteen minutes of the countdown.

* ChronicHeroSyndrome: The Dark Knight is burning rubber to make it across town to stop Daggett from demolishing an old building (with people inside) when he sees a trolley shoot past him, completely out of control. Batman obviously can't leave them to die, but he reacts the same way most people would to an inconvenient red light.

When his request to rezone and redevelop Gotham's old Park Row neighborhood (now a rundown slum known locally as "Crime Alley") is turned down by City Hall, CorruptCorporateExecutive Roland Daggett refuses to take "no" for an answer. Instead, he hires an arsonist to blow the whole block sky-high with explosives at 9:00 sharp this upcoming night while he attends a high-profile business meeting, giving him an ironclad alibi for the blast. It's up to Batman to stop him, and the clock is ticking....

!!Tropes:

* TheBadGuyWins: Daggett walks, even though his hired goods get arrested.
* BoundAndGagged: Leslie Tompkins
* TheCameo: Salvo Smith from [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE8TheForgotten "The Forgotten"]] can be seen in the group of Park Row residents protesting redevelopment. He has a sign saying "Down with Daggett!"
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: The Dark Knight is burning rubber to make it across town to stop Daggett from demolishing an old building (with people inside) when he sees a trolley shoot past him, completely out of control. Batman can't leave them to die, but he reacts the same way most people would if they had just hit a red light.
-->'''Batman:''' Perfect. Just ''perfect''. (''alters direction to save them'')
* KillThePoor: Daggett's scheme.
* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: It's hoped that an old gas line running under the block will be blamed for causing the explosions.
* MeaningfulName: An arsonist who uses explosives? His alias is "Mr. Nitro".
* RealTime: The episode took place in real time, with frequent shots of clocks counting down to a dramatic explosion. The episode came to be because the network wanted to see an episode showing a day in the life of Batman, hence the numerous events that pile up in the fifteen minutes of the countdown.
* TimeBomb: The explosives, primed to wipe out a ''neighborhood''.
* {{Trainstopping}}: Batman is forced to stop a runaway tram, using the Batmobile. He manages to stop the tram, but also totals the car and has to continue his RaceAgainstTheClock on foot.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Daggett presents himself as a concerned businessman with only the best intentions. Batman knows better.
* WretchedHive: Daggett argues that Crime Alley is such a blight upon the city, it's better off to get rid of it, even if plenty of otherwise decent people who have nowhere else to go still live there. It's pretty clear he holds anyone still calling it home in contempt and doesn't care how many get blown up.
