Batgirl is grossed out until her friends convince her that dads get lonely, too. And with the school dance coming up and everyone pairing off-heck, even Principal Waller has a date with a guy called Deadshot-maybe it’ll be okay. The girls place a personal ad for Commissioner Gordon while they delve deeper into the mystery surrounding the explosion, but they’re about to discover more than who is behind the attack on S.T.A.R.
