While the pair investigates the murder of a man and his son Batgirl asks Batman if she could help solve the case, however Batman declines her request; saying she wasn't ready yet. As she waits for the culprits, a new mafia group lead by a blind man named Ving, she begins to fume over the death of the boy and, when the mafia group arrives to what they think is a safe haven from Batman she unloads her grief apon the entire group. When she later voices her grief and frustration to Batman, that even bringing the criminals to justice couldn't make up for the boy's death, Batman agrees and declares that she was now ready to be a detective.

"Everything's impossible until somebody does it."
