Batman and Robin are called to a robbery, where the witch announces that she will be removing their senses one at a time as the evening, and her crime spree, progress.

And that’s essentially what happens, though the two heroes always manage to prevail.

Robin is the one to figure out that the broomstick is the actual source of her powers, and unseats her, freeing Batman from her spell.

The whole thing turns out to be a ploy by the Outsider, who brags at the end to Batman.

Later continuity would add even more to this story, when it was revealed that the witch was actually Zatanna, in disguise and under the thrall of the Outsider.

Ralph and Sue are on their way to Central City to visit Barry and Iris, when Ralph is alerted to a house rigged up by Mirror Master.  Sue goes off to lunch with Iris while Ralph navigates through the various traps, finding the man running it while Mirror Master is away.

It turns out Flash chose to leave the house to Ralph, rather than dealing with it after he defeated Mirror Master, because he figured Ralph would enjoy it.  And, he did.  That’s a true buddy.

The story ends with the two couples going out for a refined dinner.
