Batman continues to battle the terrorists as more crime lords gather. Spoiler wonder about the second Robin, about whom she knows little except something bad happened. The terrorists are defeated, Batman confronts the scientist for whom the event was held. He is a collaborator. His body dissolves away as he warns this is only the beginning.

Spoiler finally contemplates Tim Drake, her immediate predecessor as Robin, his anger at her learning his secret identity. Catwoman arrives and she's surprised Spoiler is being allowed to cover this situation and Spoiler admits she's been fired. Catwoman encourages Spoiler to call in Batman, just when the gang meeting erupts into gunfire.

Catwoman demands Spoiler call Batman as she flees. As Spoiler watches her go, she's grateful no one remains to witness her failure. She decides Batman was right to fire her, she could be of no help to him, while she burns a list.
