“BATMEN ETERNAL” finale! This is it—the unbelievable conclusion of James Tynion IV’s Batman epic! It’s the last stand of the Gotham Knights, fighting a monster they helped inspire...and a destiny they won’t accept! What will become of the greatest crime-fighting team Gotham City ever saw?

Summary of Stephness: As Steph cracks Brother Eye's false future wide open and shows the truth to Tim and Kate, she also tells Batman that even though she doesn't think she'll ever completely agree with him, she thinks he is a force for good on the whole. She then gives Tim complete control of the system, saying that the Tim she loves will make the right choice - and he does.

Later, as Tim leaves on a quest to explore the information he's learned in the past months, Steph is waiting in their car, ready to join him on the next stage of their adventure.

Behind the Scenes: Tynion posted a long retrospective about his run on Detective Comics on his tumblr:
