Synopsis for "At the End of the Day"

Nightwing reminisces the past when he and Bruce stopped crime as the "dynamic duo"; Batman and Robin.

The present is much grimmer than those days and now Nightwing and Batman patrol the ruins of Gotham City but stopping people from harming each other instead of crime activity. Both vigilantes seem to know that the city might not recover from this blow as they see how the people starts leaving the city while they still can. Batman tells Nightwing that Lucius Fox and James Gordon both agree in one thing, that Gotham is not a good place to stay.

Nightwing and Batman decide to go to Tricorner to see how they can help and on their way they have a serious conversation about their future plans. When they arrive at Tricorner, Bruce tells Nightwing that the "good old days" might not be over yet, as they find a street gang committing crimes and they go to stop them just like the dynamic duo of the past.
