"Seems only fitting that it end in the same place it started... It's been building to this after all-- the night where everything changed"Dick challenges Saiko to continue the fight outside, but Saiko takes the time to reveal himself as Raymond. The shock leaves Dick open to an attack, as Raymond knocks him off the scoreboard. While Dick using his grapple hook to zip back up, Raymond says:
"Died? Exactly Dick... I was your friend, family even--and you killed me! They came from the shadows, and took me Dick... They kidnapped me... Tortured me... They ruined me. They turned me into this.As Raymond finishes, he presses a trigger, igniting explosions through out the circus.
Things are getting very, very, very interesting. This is the issue where things have really started to come together, and I literally can't wait until the next issue for all to be revealed.
Why this issue got me so excited is in the dialogue I pointed out from Saiko. With the book of names Dick found, having William Cobb, a confirmed Talon in it, it seems Dick was possibly supposed to be a Talon at some point. But as Saiko says "the night where everything changed" which is obviously the night Dick's parents died... the same night Bruce took Dick away from the circus. "They came from the shadows, and took me" I wonder who "THEY" are... and by "I wonder" I'm implying a heavy amount of sarcasm.
So make your own speculations. What I laid out above is why this issue got me so damn excited for what's to come.
