Subj: Batgirl #5 (spoilers, just in case)

What did everyone think of Batgirl #5?
I bought it today and read it tonight and it's the first issue of the series wherein I think Gail Simone has dropped the ball.
The issue feels like a mess.
The introduction of Gretel seemed to fall beside the wayside all for the purpose of internal monologue about fear of guns, and fear of mothers.
And then with Bruce Wayne and the 338 storyline... There's just too much going on, I believe.
It's the first issue in which I found myself thinking "I wonder what anyone else can do with this character" which is disappointing as I've enjoyed the previous 4 issues a lot.
