Gotham Girl lost her brother, Gotham, on the previous issue.
As always, Alfred Pennyworth has the best dry humour by pointing out that he hasn’t really helped Bruce cope with the death of his parents when he goes out every night dressed as a bat and beating up criminals.
Batman’s approach to helping Gotham Girl reminds me a lot of the Justice League Unlimited episode, where he’s called to deal with an out of control Ace. Everyone thought he was gonna put her out of her misery or beat her up or something. To everyone’s surprise, he treated her like the scared kid that she was. Despite all the training and gadgets, Batman shows his humanity is still his best weapon.
