In 2019, Bruce Wayne, the original Batman, retires due to failing health when his rescue of a kidnapped woman nearly goes wrong and he must resort to almost using a gun—the ultimate sin in his eyes.

After Terry's father is murdered, Terry seeks Bruce's help to avenge him.

Though initially Terry believed that he was a clone of Bruce Wayne, Amanda Waller states that Bruce Wayne is instead Terry's biological father. The truth being revealed to Terry allows him to let go of his anger and fear. He calls his long-time girlfriend Dana in preparation to ask her to marry him.

Note: The episode acts as the Justice League season finale, as a crossover, and as the final Batman Beyond episode. It contains many references to prior episodes of Justice League, Batman Beyond and Batman: The Animated Series such as the death of Terry's father, Ace from the episode Wild Cards, the future Justice League, much of Terry's rogues gallery, the Gray Ghost and Andrea Beaumont. The final scene also bears a resemblance to the first scene of "On Leather Wings" (the first episode of Batman: The Animated Series), as the creative team thought this could possibly be the final JLU episode, fully bringing the universe full circle.
