While Batman works on a plan to get out, he wants to know everything David Said offered to Helena. She tells him the entire conversation.
I love that Helena is her own person. I love that she isn’t tic for tac.  I love that she isn’t motivated by power. She could have it, the mob, Checkmate. It means nothing to her. I love that she’s comfortable with herself, she isn’t intimidated by Batman. I love that she reminded him of all the times she saved his life because he needs to be reminded. And I love that no matter how horribly Batman has treated her, she maintains her principles, marches to her own drums, and she wouldn’t think to sell him out. I’m grateful she told him all that and he didn’t have a choice but to listen. Thank you Scott Beatty!
Before they make their escape, and take out some of Checkmates guys, Batman ask Helena to take David Said up on his offer to be Checkmates Queen, only that she’ll be working for him too. Helena agrees, goes to Said and becomes his Queen!
SIDE NOTE: I couldn’t scan the entire dps so Thanks to justthesidekick for letting me use his/her scan!

Batman hasn’t used the old caves in ages and Checkmate’s coming in and Huntress isn’t all that confident in Batman abilities at the moment, especially considering nothing is working!

Robin and Dr. Thompkins arrive at the secret Batcave to find some Checkmate pawns outside ready to inflitrate. Robin takes care of them. Batman tells him that everything has been compromised and to get Leslie to saftey. He and Huntress will handle things.

Alfred informs Batman that he is monitoring the situation on his end and realizes he is not alone. Poor Alfred!

Helena comes to but isn’t familiar with her surroundings. Once again believing she’s been captured, she tussles with Batman. Eventually, she gains her senses and surroundings, he tells her he believes she’s been tagged with a transmitter. He wants to know about David Said but Helena initially plays coy because she doesn’t trust anyone at the moment. Batman tells her he’s trying to help her.
Batman says what he’s about to do will hurt but he can’t give her a local anesthesia and risk paralysing her arm since she’s going to need it. In the meantime Tim has gotten Dr. Leslie Thompkins and called Alfred to tell him where Bruce has taking Helena.

Batman tells Robin to go get Dr. Leslie Thompkins. Helena’s in no position to travel far, they’ll rendezvous at one of the old batcaves. Batman carries Helena away, promises he’ll take care of her. Since Checkmate has inserted a tracking device in Helena, David Said says check and mate and sends his men after Batman.

Helena runs out her apartment, presumably on her way to find Batman, except he found her first, literally crashes into her, knocking her unconscious. I love Tim here, and I’ve always loved and appreciated his loyalty to Helena.

Checkmate is staking out Helena’s apartment having tracked her there. They realize she’s using artificial neighbors when in fact she’s the only tenent in the entire building. After he takes out a few pawns, Vic Sage calls her to tell her she’s being watched and needs to get out of there. 
I think this is my favorite Helena and Vic page. Vic’s love and concern for Helena is palpable, but she angered, hurt, and disappointed him and he hasn’t forgiven or forgotten.  But there’s still a lot of love and warmth between them. 
On a side note: If I’m not mistaken, this is also the last time this apartment building of Helena’s was referenced. I’m assuming it was too dangerous for her to return. In my mind she did something good with it to help others, and I’d love to see whatever it is.

Helena luckily catches herself on a flag poll and enters Checkmate headquarters through a tiny whole in the window. She must really be limber and flexible to fix in that hole. Those years of gymnastic training came in to good use. She takes the woman’s coat and credentials at gun point and exits the building. But she doesn’t know she’s been injected with a tracking monitar and the receptionist calls Said and tells him “Your Highness has left the building”.

David Said offers Helena a job as Checkmates Queen and this is her response. Only she can do something as crazy as jump out a building 50+ feet high and it be cool as hell.

Helena tells David he can’t make her talk, but he tells her he knows all about her. He also believes he knows enough to coerce her into joining him at Checkmate.

Mad Hatter believes Helena has daddy issues, and if David Said can server whatever bond she has with Batman, he’ll find her more agreeable.

Vic Sage meets with Nightwing, hands over some photos he came in contact with. Nightwing’s not happy and tells Vic that his connection to Helena isn’t a secret. Vic shoots back that his “relationship” is even less a secret. Nightwing says whatever happened between him and Helena has been over for a long time. Vic warns Nightwing that a certain government agency isn’t too fond of capes in Gotham. He’d tell Batman himself but it seems like it’s a family affair. Vic’s more preoccupied with ensuring that Helena is okay.
