Summary of Stephness: The murder of Philmont resolved, Robin goes to visit Stephanie to tell her he's leaving Gotham City for an indefinite period. He lets her know that this was not due to the decision of Batman or his own decision, but that is was something outside his control.

Stephanie says her mom will help her, and worries that Robin might not like her now because of her pregnancy. Tim lets her know that doesn't affect his feelings at all, and starts to tell her that pregnancy makes her glow, but she cuts him off, threatening to beat him to death with a stuffed animal. Robin promises to be try to come back. Steph tells him not to worry, knowing he has responsibilities. Tim leaves her with a kiss, feeling regretful that he must abandon his beloved.

The next day, Tim leaves for Keystone City by plane with his father, Jack Drake, for their new lives. At the airport, Dana surprises Tim. She had moved to Keystone with him and Jack.

Tim tries to integrate into the city as Robin. There is an attack on the bank, and Robin tries to stop the burglars. He gets in over his head and has to be rescued in a whirlwind by Keystone's resident hero, the Flash. They make friends.

During transfer of prisoners, Captain Boomerang and The Riddler team up to escape, overturning the van they are in. The two villains are determined to fill their pockets in Keystone City.

Behind the Scenes: Apparently, everyone worked really fast on this issue, as the credits all have cute "fast" nicknames for all the creators.
