Spinebender (remember #4) is back in town... well, in Gotham, creating all sorts of problems. Turns out he doesn't have much time left to live, so he decides to go out on his own terms... by taking Nightwing with him, but Dick manages to hook on to a passing car in order to get away from Spinebender before he overloads himself with electricity and explodes. Bye, Spinebender?
Elsewhere, Sonia Zucco is in Chicago, visiting her father, who has gone on all about his life, and how he's missed Sonia so much. Tony thinks there's a chance that he may get out, but Sonia tells him that she's going to do everything possible to make sure he stays in. He asks why she'd do that, so Sonia brings up the one thing that her father refuses to talk about... The fact that despite everything, he did kill the Graysons.
Dick walks back to his apartment, with the collateral damage caused by Spinebender on his mind (of course he blames himself for it). He sees Jen and her parents leaving, and chats with them a bit, and of course Jen gives Dick a bit of a look when they're leaving, because she knows.
The next day, Michael shows Dick the footage of Nightwing that his replacement got, but Dick reassures Michael he made the right choice. Just then, Sonia shows up to the bar, and asks if she can speak to Dick for a few minutes. Sonia apologizes to Dick for everything, as she was never exactly truthful to him. Sonia figures the ship of them being friends has sailed, but she just wanted to make sure Dick knew she was sorry. Dick appreciates it, but then soon learns that because of the media circus surrounding her, Sonia's bank let her go... So with his actions in going after Tony Zucco, while he doesn't regret them, are weighing on his mind, because once again, his life has had a less than desirable affect on someone else's.
Things go from bad to worse when Dick gets home to find Joey crying. Turns out Jen's parents were killed in a mugging. With no next of kin in the city, Jen is brought to Dick's apartment, where Joey and Michael speak with the police, while all Dick can do is see his past in Jen. Dick sits down to speak with Jen, who wastes no time making it clear she knows who he is, and wants to help him get the guy who killed her parents. Dick is taken back by this, and sort of stalls, which isn't the answer Jen wanted. He goes to get a glass of water for Jen, but when he gets back, he and his roommates find Jen missing. They look through her in the apartment, and Dick notices his hidden compartment has been opened. Dick mentions to his roommates that Jen knew who killed her parents and wanted to find the person who did it. Joey tells Dick that the police had a visual, and it's one Dick's not going to like...
Turns out the guy who killed Jen's parents is a bit of a nut job, carving notches into his skin and going by the name Mr. Zsasz.
