Synopsis for "Who Is Oracle? - Learn to Fly"

Batgirl, Black Canary, and Huntress speed through the streets of Gotham City as Commissioner Gordon and the GCPD escort Santo Cassamento to a safe house. Cassamento's men catch up to the GCPD escort in an attempt to free Cassamento and Huntress and Black Canary are forced to break off to dissuade them. Working together, the three women manage to fend off their pursuers and they manage to get Cassamento to the GCPD Safe House.

At the safe house Batgirl and Huntress interrogate Cassamento about the process for dealing with Oracle. Because the two interacted only via e-mail, they force Cassamento to divulge the off-shore account number Oracle uses for money deposits. They also attempt to trace his IP Address via his e-mail. Cassamento is fearful of Fenice's wrath if Oracle discovers that Cassamento has been talking.

Commissioner Gordon wants to speak with Batgirl. Stepping into a room privately, Gordon and Batgirl argue about the precariousness of Batgirl's situation. Gordon is concerned that the Birds of Prey can't handle the situation along and wants to call in Batman. Batgirl assures Gordon that the Birds of Prey can handle both Fenice and Oracle before storming out.

The Birds return to the Gotham Clock Tower to follow their leads. Batman arrives at the clock tower. He has come to ensure Batgirl can handle the situation. He warns her that Fenice is hiring metahumans. While Batgirl manages to convince Batman that she can handle Fenice on her own, Huntress and Black Canary spar on the roof to test each others skills. The Birds continue to try and track Oracle prompting the hacker to send Batgirl a taunting message, which she traces to a server farm outside of Gotham City.

Batgirl and Black Canary go inside to investigate as Huntress watches from outside. Inside they find that the server farm is empty and the servers are in the process of being wiped. Batgirl tries to salvage what information she can while Black Canary discovers a bomb that has been rigged. Batgirl barely finishes when the Huntress pulls both of the other Birds to safety and earning their trust in the process. Unfortunately as the Birds are investigating the server farm, Asp, Copperhead, Cottonmouth, and Lady Viper are preparing to attack the safe house.
