Batgirl attempted to break free a good Samaritan who'd been kidnapped by the mob, but, due to wounds he had suffered during his capture, he died before they could get out of the make-shift prison.
"I hope to god you never have to read this. It was the ring on her finger that stopped me. Does that make any sense? It reminded me of your ring, your hand, and I felt I had to do something. Then, with the gun in my face, all I could think of was you -- not the idea of you, but you as you were -- at home, waiting for me, for the food in my hands... and I started to walk away. I am very, very sorry, my love. Some stupid, juvenile, comic-book notion of heroism turned me around and now you have to pay the price. All I can say is that I love you, I always have, and nothing they do to me can ever change that.
