Synopsis for "Dark Knight vs. White Knight, Tree of Blood, Part Three"

Batman and Robin are looking for the relatives of the Arkham Asylum inmates, but they are all gone. The White Knight already has them, dressed in angels like his previous victims, and he orders them "not to add to the world's pain" and "take flight to the night." Batman and Robin are too late to stop him from giving the order to jump, but they do manage to jam the signal and rescue many by firing nets that catch them in mid-air.

In the Batbunker, Dick, Damian, and Alfred discuss nature vs. nurture. None of the Arkham inmates' relatives are bad people, but the White Knight clearly falls on the "nature" side of the argument since he sentenced them all to death before they or their descendants could go bad like their relatives.

The White Knight, however, attacks Arkham next and lights up the entire asylum. He tells the inmates about their relatives' deaths and reveals he is the son of an Arkham guard who once came into work with his father on a day when a riot broke out. His father died during the riot, and Doctor Phosphorus's handprints looked like angel's wings on his back. The White Knight is going to purify them like they purified his father, and then he is going to save this country and then the whole world.

Batman and Robin arrive before he can kill anyone, and Batman kicks him backwards into the arms of Zsasz. Robin saves the White Knight from Zsasz. Batman disposes of the bomb and breaks the White Knight's arclight, ending his threat.

Lewis Bayard is imprisoned in Arkham Asylum, his own angel wings now permanently fused to his back. The White Knight adds models representing Batman and Robin to his tree.
