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.

Art Change on Batman Eternal #10
Posted this on twitter earlier, but figured I might as well make a post about it here. Guillem March apparently isn't drawing Batman Eternal #10 as solicited, bummer! In his place will be Riccardo Burchielli of DMZ fame. I was really hoping to get these three issues in from March, and thought we would as I spotted some WIP stuff from issue #8 posted in January. But, with the way the weekly schedules go, I assume they leave no room for error.
I always figured one of these weeklies was going to flinch in terms of artists, and given the way Eternal is solicited with some more notable artists doing multiple issues in a row, where Futures End is a different artist each week. I guess Eternal just was too good to be true in some respects.
But even thought March isn't drawing all three of the issues he's solicited for, I do hope to see him make a return to the title down the line, like Jason Fabok and hopefully Dustin Nguyen. Those three guys are some of my favorite Bat artists, so the more I can get from them, the better.
Also, one last note, as if March not drawing this issue was sad enough, Eternal #10 is John Layman's last issue in Gotham for quite some time. I'm sure he'll be listed as a contributing writer within the series for awhile, but this is indeed the last issue he's scripted.
