Synopsis for "Batgirl's Last Case"

On the big election night to find a new congressional representative in Gotham City, the local criminal element is less than ecstatic about the potential for the police Commissioners daughter going to Washington and so they begin a campaign of intimidation to dissuade the citizens of Gotham to vote for Barbra Gordon. This however backfires when Babs becomes aware and sends some of her supporters to encourage people to vote.

With their first plan a failure, they deiced to assassinate Gordon instead, and start their plan by trying to get rid of her bodyguard Jason Bard, while simultaneously rigging the podium for Gordon's victory speech with explosives. Bard answers a phone call that tells him that they have Batgirl hostage, Bard not knowing that Barbara is really Batgirl goes to Gotham Park to free her, bumping into a familiar face setting up the podium along the way.

At Gotham Park, Bard falls into the trap and has to be saved by Batgirl. Afterwards, Bard remembers why the TV crew man was familiar, because his was the voice of the man making threats on the phone. As Batgirl rushes to make her speech in her civilian guise, Jason rushes to save her life, and manages to stop her from setting off the explosion.

Days later, Barbara bids farewell to Jason and her father before boarding a plane headed for Washington, D.C.
