With no pressing cases, Renee investigates the mystery of the flowers.  Tracking down the florist, she discovers that they were ordered by Bruce Wayne, and goes to confront him.  Hr confirms her suspicions, that the actual sender was Harvey Dent.  He had contacted Wayne to send the flowers, counting on their old friendship.

So her birthday party winds up consisting of shared cupcakes in the prison visiting room, with the man who held her captive.  It’s sad, and touching.

There is an uplifting moment at the end, as Batman leaves her a birthday card, thanking her for her kindness towards Dent.

Not a big story, no huge drama.  But it sure hits you.
