Right in the middle of the bad stuff, we begin with Barbara's roommate Alysia and a number of other activists trapped in a big cooperate skyscraper. Seems they were up to no good, and the cooperation that Alysia and company were going to "vandalize" caught on, and hired some help to clean up the mess... That help being the wonderfully twisted Ragdoll, who stalks each of them, picking them off one by one.
Across town, while she's unaware someone is watching her from afar, Barbara is visiting Ricky in the hospital for the first time, and he's got something to tell her... While she thinks he's going to break up with her, that's not the case, no no no, instead, he's suing her father for shooting him without cause! Awkward!
So of course Babs leaves, and then she gets a frantic call from Alysia that's basically "I'm probably going to die, tell my family I love them." Of course Babs can't have that, so off to do Batgirl stuff she goes. Babs arrives at the skyscraper, and wouldn't you know it, the cooperation who owns it is a dummy corp. for Mr. Rain from the annual. Babs gets in the building and starts tracking down Alysia, who is the only one left aside from one other girl, as Ragdoll is having quite the night.
But why are Alysia and her activist friends in the office? Well, they were going to set off a "stink bomb" that would have made the building inhabitable for a week. Who gave them this stink bomb? Bleak Michael! So obviously, nothing is kosher in the situation.
Babs eventually finds Alysia, right as Ragdoll attacks her. Fights happen! Ragdoll doesn't go down easily! But surprisingly, Ragdoll stops the fight himself and explains that they're both being played, as the "stink bomb" is actually a deadly nerve agent. Also, Ragdoll wasn't actually killing anybody, he wasn't paid enough to do so... just almost kills them.
So things wrap up, Knightfall was obviously behind the nerve agent thing, but someone tipped Rain off to her, so that means they've got a leak in their organization. Elsewhere, Ragdoll kills the guy who hired him, because Alysia informed him that the Rain corporation tests on monkeys, and Ragdoll rather likes monkeys.
