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.

Dark Nights: Metal coming in August
In September I was told "Batman with battle axes" and I thought "yep, do that." Then went on to think "yeah, that's gonna get changed probably." Here I am, months later, looking at an image of Batman with two god damn battle axes and I'm pretty fucking happy about that.
Dark Days: The Forge and The Casting will lead to Dark Knights: Metal, a DCU spanning event that spawns from Batman finding a deep secret within Nth metal, that will lead to a major threat suitable for an event title. On the live stream announcement, Scott Snyder mentioned that this event spans all the way from the Source Wall to Gotham, and will show that there have been seeds from his run, Peter Tomasi work, and event Grant Morrison's work.
Some of the stuff I heard last year about this was just so god damn exciting sounding, it's been hard to contain my excitement this whole time. I'm real happy it's out of the bag, because I can't wait to learn even more about it.
And for good measure, here's the cover of Dark Days: The Casting.
