Ra's should wear a suit more often, that's my biggest take away from this issue.
Surprise, hero goes to place in their past and everyone wants them dead! Whoops.
Batman heads to the past, then gets Metal, meanwhile Nightwing fights everyone.

Stephanie Brown's (potential) New 52 Spoiler Design
Dustin Nguyen posted a design sketch to his tumblr of Stephanie Brown, and her complete new Spoiler look. He made a note that he feels people might not like the mask, but the thought behind it was that she's not part of the "Bat Family" yet, so he wanted to avoid the domino mask. Also, given how things do change, the mask could change by the time it needs to be drawn in Batman: Eternal.
My thoughts? I like it. One of my biggest gripes with the original Spoiler costume was the sock mask. At the time, it was whatever, but after Steph's time as Batgirl, and reading some thought process behind that costume, I believe it's very important to see Steph emote. She's not a totally grim serious character all the time, she can be happy, surprised, sad, angry, whatever, and it's all in the face. So while her mouth is covered up, for now, at least we get to see the eyes.
