The Court of Owls mystery gets even stranger as new secrets are unveiled to the Dark Knight.

Dots connect and confrontation abounds in yet another all-star chapter of Batman’s Court of Owls saga. When an unconscious Dark Knight is jump-started back to life, he journeys back to the Batcave where he unearths some startling facts behind the method of the Court’s madness, which may or may not involve his own former sidekick. After an intense clash between mentor and protégé, Bruce solemnly admits to Dick and to himself a dark truth –– one he wishes he had never discovered.

Seven issues ago, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo introduced to us the Talon, a strange new threat to Gotham City, as well as to Bruce Wayne himself, and the DNA evidence pointed to Dick Grayson as the culprit. This episode knots up those threads with a pair of unexpected revelations and also marks a return of the hot-blooded bond between these two heroes in a shouting match that rivals some of the greatest Batman/Nightwing confrontations in Bat-history. With Capullo’s unsettling art and Snyder’s ace storytelling blending together ancient allusion with a sense of silent terror, we are once more strapped into a thrill ride speeding towards the precipice of an outcome yet to be seen.
