1. "End to End"
The story begins with the murder of a writer of the Gotham gossip rag, "The Revealer." This murder is committed by Penguin, who is apparently riled because of the story written about it in the leaflet recently.
The scene then switches to the apartment of Oracle, where she and Black Canary are watching a special on Black Canary on TV. Barbara receives a copy of "The Revealer," whose front page has an article declaring the story of a woman supposedly carrying the Penguin's love child. She sends Dinah after the woman, whom she fears will be in trouble.
Her suspicions turn out to be right when Black Canary barely manages to rescue the pregnant woman from her apartment. As they flee on motorcycle, Dinah receives a shot to the shoulder.
They escape into the subway, where Penguin confronts the two. He reveals that the child is not his, despite what the woman has told Dinah. He almost kills her, but is stopped by the woman, who confesses that she knew the child wasn't his. She was merely hoping for more publicity.
The scene switches back to Oracle's apartment, where Barbara reveals that she is going to support the woman and her child for life, since she saved her partner. Dinah smiles and speculates whether or not the child will be named after her.
2. "Flip Slide"
Huntress is attacking a group of Mafia members, when Black Canary crashes the fight in a truck. They start to fight together, with Huntress mentally complaining about how perfect Dinah is and how easy everything is for her. They compare tips on fighting at one point. Huntress is unable to stop one of the mafia men from shooting another one. As the fight finishes up, she asks Black Canary if she is going to blame her for the death, stating that Batman or Oracle would. Dinah shrugs and says that she doesn't think its her fault. She goes on to say that her mother also sometimes disapproves of her, causing Huntress to think that maybe they have more things in common than she thought.
3. "Who's Next"
The story begins with a phone call from Oracle to Power Girl. Karen hangs up on her, causing Barbara to decide that she needs a new partner. She calls up a list of female superheroes and starts to debate the pluses and minuses of each.
Wonder Woman is rejected because she is too high-profile, Argent because she's too low-profile. She labels Firehawk too no-profile and Supergirl too super. Mary Marvel is too innocent and Catwoman too experienced. Starfire, she rejects, because she doesn't want to work with Nightwing's old finance.
She decides to view video clips of the remaining contenders, starting with Fire. Fire is shown taking down a villain, then asking a police officer what he thinks about her new outfit. Barbara determines that she is too flaky. The next candidate is Dr. Fate, whom she judges too creepy. She admires Big Barda's techniques, but says that she's not what she needs. Huntress is rejected because she doesn't seem like a team player.
Black Canary is the next. Oracle praises her martial arts abilities, and her general techniques. She decides that all Dinah needs is a fresh start and thus a new partnership is formed.
