Awakening from being knocked out by a bounty hunter Batgirl defeated her captures and proceeded to track the psychic in an effort to get him to change her back. Meanwhile, on his way to Macau Tim Drake gave Batman the intel on the man seen killed on the video; a numbers man named Faizul. Batman, learning nothing from Faizul's corpse, tracked down David Cain and learned the true story of his new partner. Batgirl lost the ability to read body language when she was given the ability to understand speech. She saved the psychic who helped her, and Batman arrived.

"Why do you think she ran away from me that night? Huh? Any guesses? Why do you think...she puts on your costume and risks her life for strangers? Altruism? Guilt, my friend. Only guilt can drive you like that. When she plunged her little fingers into his neck...the look on her face...first kill's...never easy, but...she just...fell apart. Too young. Too soon. My fault."
