Synopsis for "Till Death Do Us Part!"

An assassin from Maze attempts to shoot Robin during a basketball tournament. Robin deflects the bullet and is easily able to subdue his would be killer. The police arrest the assassin as he threatens Robins life and informs him that his days are numbered. The next morning, a man is seen arriving at a gas station. He enters the bathroom and talks into the mirror which seems to serve as a communication device. The man complains that his 100 grand to have Robin and Batgirl knocked off has gone to waste. A voice on the other end assures him that the assassination will be carried out.

Batgirl keeps a parking garage under surveillance in Washington DC as she observes a secret meeting where an exchange is taking place. The suspected criminals make a getaway in their car and batgirl gives chase on her bat cycle. The car turns around and hits the Batcycle sending batgirl flying into the air. Batgirl lands on her feet and jumps on the roof of the car. She subdues the cars two occupants as a police car pulls up to arrest the two criminals that batgirl captured. The scene closes as an unidentified figure complains that his assassination contract has not been carried out. He is assured by a dark figured man that he never gives up on a contract.

Members of the assassin group Maze congregate at Fords Theater in Washington DC to witness a wedding ceremony between Robin and Batgirl. Robin and Batgirl arrive on the scene for the wedding but they appear to be in a hypnotic trance. The priest conducts the wedding ceremony and the Maze assassins shoot at Robin and Batgirl as the wedding draws to a close. When the gunfire dies down, the assassins are shocked to see Robin and Batgirl swing down from behind. They had apparently used a trap door to escape the flying bullets. They take on the assassins as the police arrive to arrest the occupants of the theater. The priest is also arrested as the suspected ringleader. In the end, Batgirl explains that she and a disguised Robin ordered the hit on themselves to flush out the Ringleader of Maze.
