The Question tells Helena the story of the butterfly dreaming, and she frustratedly gets back into her car and drives away, thinking him insane.

The next morning, she finds a caricature of the Huntress above an article by Karen Frazier linking her superheroine identity to the murders. She worries that if Batman leaks her identity to the police, the five mob families will come after her.

Dick Grayson tells Oracle he thinks the Huntress is innocent, and Oracle gets jealous. Mario Cassamento talks to Vincenzo Galante about his hot cousin, and as he makes more lustful remarks, his father slaps him in the face with a newspaper. Nightwing drops by Helena's apartment to offer help, and Helena scoffs -- she's never benefited from the Bat Family's help before. She kicks him out of her apartment and vows to handle the situation on her own.

Helena suits up and becomes the Huntress. She heads to the apartment of reporter Karen Frazier, only to find her dead with arrows in her chest. The police suddenly knock on the door and Helena has to vamoose.

Huntress finds herself on the roof staring down both Batman and Nightwing. Batman tries to force her to come with him, refusing to let her fight cops all over the city, innocent or not. She tries to get away, gets knocked to the ground, and her crossbow goes off, hitting Batman. Nightwing freaks out and starts fighting her, and Huntress's only way out is diving into the Gotham harbor, where she's fished out by the Question.
