It does not including Batman: Urban Legends #8 (full spoilers here) whose Outsiders story saw Tim Drake reveal whether his codename is Robin or not going forward.

Anyhow, in this one-shot, the final story is new and features Tim Drake, his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Brown and current boyfriend Bernard Dowd.

There is an adventure too before we get to the personal moments.

An adventure that requires Tim Drake’s super-hero team Young Justice with Conner Kent Superboy and Bart Allen Impulse.

The adventure requires the super-heroes to split up leaving Tim and Stephanie paired.

They have each other’s backs as both teams converge to defeat the threat.

The moments fans have been waiting for are on the last two pages.

Tim and Stephanie sort out their close bond of friendship; they aren’t just “work colleagues”.

Tim Drake has Stephanie Brown meet Bernard Dowd and she is wholly accepting.
