Synopsis for "Howling in the Dark"
Gotham City has been in the dark for four days already and the streets are filled with crime and chaos. Robin and Huntress patrol the city together and stop random displays of violence. Batman stops some looters and saves a man from a burning building.
Huntress and Robin save a police officer from an hostage situation and Huntress asks Robin if she would ever be part of the Batman team. Robin couldn't answer to that and Huntress told him that she was there to stay.
At a Gotham radio station, a local broadcaster rants about the insecurity and the loss of hope that surrounds him. He receives a call from Otis Flannegan, also known as the Ratcatcher and both agree that Gotham was lost to darkness and despair. When the man finished his broadcast he goes out to his car but he is attacked by two thugs. The two of them were about to kill the radio-man when Batman arrived and saved the man. Batman told him to call the police and to have a little faith.
In the end, Robin and Huntress are alone at the top of Wayne Tower and Robin told her that Batman might not like her or her methods, but Robin had faith in her. Then the electricity came back to the city and without delay, they crossed the night sky once again.
