The Huntress wakes up with no idea where she is, or how she got there. She finds herself meeting a man who calls himself Richard Dragon, and drinking his green tea. She gets frustrated however, with his cryptic answers to her questions and gets a bit more forceful in wanting to know what's going on. "We're saving your bacon," says Vic Sage, coming in through the door with an arm full of firewood.

Dragon and Sage catch up on old times while Helena sits at the table groggy and angry. Sage lays his mask in front of her, and explains who he is, and what Dragon can do for her. As she considers staying with Richard, he heads off for Gotham to find answers.

Back in Gotham, Robin tells Oracle he believes Huntress to be innocent. They investigate Helena's history and come to the same question that Helena asks herself -- why was she spared?

Huntress studies with Dragon and finds herself taking time to, as Dragon says, breathe. She fears the Huntress persona, but Dragon tells her that she is the Huntress and there's no extracting that from her. The Question arrives, and the two walk the long walk back to town, where waiting at a bus stop, the Huntress decides to tell her story.
