Ra's should wear a suit more often, that's my biggest take away from this issue.

SPOILERS: Gotham Academy #9
Olive learns the truth, and she's not going to like what she finds out about herself and her family.
Still a bit shaken by the letter, Olive excuses herself only to return to her dorm to find Maps' creepy looking roommate going through her stuff, then leaves without a word. Not long after that, a folder is slipped under Olive's door which contains all sorts of info about her mother and herself. Turns out Olive was unaware that her mother wasn't just sick, but was also considered a costumed villain by the name of Calamity, and instead of being at the academy for a scholarship, she's there to be watched.
Olive goes to the counselor to talk about this… Who is Hugo Strange by the way, because background checks don't exist… And he tells her she was never supposed to find this information, and he is actually supposed to report any interaction with her. He also mentions there's another student there for observation, Tristian.
So Olive goes to talk to him in Langstrom's lab where she finds those two, and Prof. MacPhereson, who she asks if she knew everything about her and her mother. Yup… but she says things are complicated. Regardless, Olive talks to Tristian, and something something something, turns out the old science Prof there was doing some shady stuff and thus that's why the gym teacher is a werewolf, and now that Milo isn't there, he's going full wolf all the time with no ability to control himself. Attacks, then runs off to the woods.
Everyone gives chase, kids show up too. Wolf is about to attack Olive, who freezes, and it seems like her mother or a ghost or… something, is speaking to her, telling her to use her fire and burn everything. Before anything can happen, Colton hits the wolf with a tranq gun, then he and Langstrom deal with it.
Later, the kids all go out to a theatre of sorts, and Pomeline pulls Olive aside, saying she stole and read that note. Olive gets pissed, clearly, but things go from bad to worse when she looks over Pom's shoulder and sees who she believes to be Calamity, setting the building on fire.
