A main street in Gotham City. Night time. Police arrive at the scene of a bank robbery to find the robbers have escaped… despite having being captured earlier by Batgirl. All that remains are the ropes which Batgirl used to tie the robbers to a lamp post. In the foreground of the panel, Detective Harvey Bullock examines the scene while talking on his cell phone. The ropes he holds have been cut.
Bullock: Batgirl caught the perps, left ‘em all tied up with a nice bow… but by the time we arrived, they were gone.
Bullock: Somebody broke them loose.
At the headquarters of Batman Inc, Tim Drake stands talking to Bruce Wayne. Tim is in costume, Bruce in a suit. On the desk between them is a collection of photographs documenting various calendar-related crimes that have occurred recently in Gotham.
Red Robin: Stephanie has been tracking Calendar Man for weeks. Collecting the evidence we needed to put him away for good. Then at the last minute... someone tipped him off.
Red Robin: He quit town this morning, Bruce. We lost him.
Batgirl is swinging over the rooftops, guided on her latest mission by instructions from Oracle.
Oracle (jagged balloon): OK, you’re closing in on Kite Man’s location now, but be careful, Batgirl, I’m picking up another—
Oracle (jagged balloon): -sssskkkrrrrrrkkkkkkrrr…
Batgirl lands on a rooftop and taps the side of her cowl in frustration. A shadowy figure steps up behind her, holding a portable jamming device…
Batgirl: Say again, Oracle? Com-link’s gone down again.
Batgirl: Damn it! What's going on? Lately, it’s like everything I do...
The figure steps into view. He’s wearing a purple costume and hood… like a male version of Stephanie’s former Spoiler costume. Batgirl reacts with surprise… and shock as she recognises the man’s voice.
Spoiler: Someone comes along and SPOILS it?
Batgirl: Who’re…!? D-dad? What are you doing?
