*Note: The context of this issue fits a little better having read Batman and Robin #18*
It's family night in the Row family, as Harper and her brother roll on up to Blackgate, to visit their recently imprisoned father. And, as you'd expect, the guy's a scumbag, making a crack at his gay son for his "own good." Harper gives her dad some serious shit, as he tells her to get her "little friend" off his back, something to which she has no idea what he's referring to.
As soon as Harper gets back to the hotel Wayne Enterprises has put them up in, she heads out, because you see, she's been trailing Batman for what seems to be a few months now, seemingly out of pure fascination. She's been trailing him so much so that she's recently noticed a distinct change in him. He's going all out, going after criminals no matter how small, never resting, and thus, leaving himself tied and open to danger in the form of carelessness more. It doesn't take much for Harper to realize what has caused all this, and that's loss.
The following night, Harper trails Batman to a confrontation with a dog fighter who has been injecting his dogs with Venom daily. The pack of dogs give Bruce quite a fight, but Harper manages to scare them off with a sonic frequency only the dogs can here. She ends up zapping the dog fighter in the balls with a taser and lets Batman finish him off.
Harper knows what Batman is going to say, but asks him to admit her training has paid off. Batman decides to test that training and straight up decks her, putting her through a fence. He continues to flip out, asking what she expected, him to see her fight, take her in, reveal all his secrets and give her a cape? The line of thought finishes up with him having seen people who have literally trained their whole lives fall, and she'd sure enough die as well.
Harper fires back at Batman saying she doesn't give a damn who he is, all she cares about is how Batman, the legend, is sort of fucking up at the moment. How reckless he's being, how open he's left himself, she tells him that he needs to deal with whatever he's facing, because if not he could be the one to die. Harper then continues to say that she knows he cares about her in some way, seeing that he went out of his way to get her father locked up. She tries to finish up with telling a story about something her mother would always say, but Bruce doesn't care, and tells her she's done, swinging off, leaving her alone.
The next day, Harper once again leaves her brother in the hotel room and heads off to try and get a meeting with Bruce Wayne. Surprisingly, Bruce is at Wayne Enterprises, having slept in the penthouse, and then being seen by Lucius, who dragged him into some meetings. Bruce's receptionist alerts him to Harper requesting to see him, to which he cautiously agrees to.
Harper is a bit surprised Bruce took the meeting, as Bruce begins to tell her that he doesn't have any direct oversight on the Narrows project, and she'd be better off speaking to someone else about it. But that's not necessarily why Harper is there. When Bruce asks what she really wants, she lets him know it's about Batman, and since he funds him, she figures he probably cares about him too. She wants to send Batman a message she believes could help, but doesn't exactly have the resources to do so. She lays out a blue print, and it doesn't take Bruce much time to agree to the project.
That evening, Bruce, as Batman, finds Harper on a rooftop, apologizing for the night before, to which Harper holds no grudge. She continues and finally tells the story of her mother, who apparently was murdered in a highly publicized case. Harper's mother said that family is funny in a way that it can drag one into darkness so quickly, and with that, the one drags others. But, it's up to that one individual to become the light that can help the family back from that darkness.
Harper's story strikes a chord with Bruce, who admits to having taken Harper's father in, telling her he had gotten mixed in with very bad people, and didn't want it coming back to haunt her and her brother. The two discuss their situations a bit more, but Harper eventually decides to leave, figuring it's best she leaves him alone for her "surprise."
Soon enough, after Harper leaves, lights begin to turn on in the offices of Wayne Tower, and once they're all on, the lights form a giant "R" on the side of the building.
