Tim -what's left of Tim's body and mind- is pointing a gun at the Joker. Every muscle in him is screaming that he's about to shoot.
You pull the Joker out of his line of fire half a second before. "He shouldn't carry the guilt," you say to Batman. "Hehehehehe," laughs the Joker. "How convenient!"
"Yes," you say, and break his neck. His body makes a dull sound as it hits the wet ground, and Tim giggles helplessly.
Everybody looks at you. Barbara. Tim's broken shell. Batman.
"Never return to Gotham," he says, and goes to Tim. Barbara seems about to say something as you melt into the shadows.
