Tim: "I love you, Steph...Goodbye."
This epic concludes with a battle against the Colony that will change Batman’s world forever—and in a way you’d never expect! Whether they win or lose, they’ve already lost…
Summary of Stephness: Tim tells Steph he loves her as he faces the hundreds of drones, just before they obliterate him. She is distraught. Batman later finds her at her apartment, and she shows him Tim's acceptance letter to Ivy University. The two share and grieving hug.
