Later, Bones appeared at a meeting called by Cobblepot. At the meeting, Cobblepot tells his underlings to find the group responsible for destroying the statue of his mother. Bones scoffed at Cobblepot, telling him to simply fix the statue with some glue and paint. In a fit of rage, Cobblepot slammed Bones' face down into the broken statue.[4]
