Liked(a lot):

-the art AND COLORS throughout.
-attention to Robin's pain over the loss of so many close to him in so short a time and understand it, though still question parts of his handling of it,
-the appropriate 2 zingers from Damian.
-the feel of Talia being forced to mellow for the sake of her son.
-Merlyn's handling
-the creepy choice of hand to extend
-the fooled-me-like-the-end-of-the-movie'300' handshake moment
-the odd finale moment(see below) that lended itself to an exciting cliffhanger moment/blurb

Hard to believe(like):

-the cover layout choice. Suppose it was a foreshadowing to shock readers at this possible future dynamic in a future issue...
-Robin is falling for this bring back your parents hooey, especially at this point in his career. Also didnt the peers of Wonder Girl learn this path to folly from 52?
-on the other hand, that Robin kept asking if Ra's COULD bring back the dead. As Talia implies, and his presence boasts - he's already DONE it 30 times.
-Robin says no and breaks away from captivity only to turn back and say yes? And next chapter's cover does infer he'll say yes...
-Robin's bruises-free recuperative abilities so far
-cant remember the connections of White Ghost to I Chang or Sensei or Sam Tang (my own fault)
-follow if I Chang's plan (Adventures of Remo Williams moment) was to just levitate out of the ninjas reach or if an unseen fight followed
-the blindly loyal ninjas would hesitate en masse and question the White Ghost or Ra's' orders mid-battle.
-readers didnt get a scene where Ra's had to at least tell, if not convince, the 3/4 nameless assassins of his new host body.
-needing the BMB to catch on Batman died. And that the pool repaired his clothes and gave him a scarf(?!). (BTW, when was the 1st time mainstream BM went without the bathing suit over the pants look?)
-White Ghost's change of heart and just leaving Robin there for ablutions[the ritual washing of a priest's hands or of sacred vessels]. Is that Pit for Robin to enter while alive(?) to be baptized and not burned?!

Hire Luke Cage:

and enter the current caption contest...
