The city is going to display a statue of Captain Hammer at the new Caring Hands Homeless Shelter. As Captain Hammer is giving a speech, Dr. Horrible freezes him. However, he is unable to kill him, and the Freeze Ray effect ends. Captain Hammer sends Dr. Horrible flying, and this sends his weapon into the floor, damaging it. As Captain Hammer tries to kill Dr. Horrible with it, the weapon explodes. Parts of the weapon strike Penny, mortally wounding her. Dr. Horrible is blamed for her death, and enters into the Evil League of Evil.
