SPOILERS: Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #7

Just some good old fashion Birds of Prey shenanigans.

The Spoilers:

While the Birds are dealing with some Zodiac nobody, Babs learns that her realtors once again tried to break into her clocktower that they sold her. Time to figure out once and for all what they're up to, and they do that by disguising Dinah and Helena as potential homebuyers to see if the realtors spill anything. 

When all is said and done, it seems the Realtors sell stuff that was used in a crime. Babs finds out that bank robbers stashed their gains there in the 60s and were never found. She looks for it, finds it, donates all the gold to the city, thanks her realtors. Also, turns out it was valentines day, Dinah didn't pick up Ollie's calls, Dick didn't call, and whatever, girls night.

The Opinion:

You see, I have to go back and figure out if I missed the point A to B explanation of why Babs started to look into the Clocktower's history, which allowed her to find the gold. Like... I don't see why the whole undercover thing with Dinah and Helena was necessary, especially if the answer for Babs and... that other guy, was just "Googled it." 

Speaking of that other guy, boy on top of the whole idea of him being stupid, he's fucking obnoxious too! He's written like Misfit, but way less self aware and literally talking about shipping Batgirl and Nightwing. Then the three calling him Oracle is just gross. Like seriously, fuck him and fuck everything about this "Oracle" situation. DC and the Benson sisters, you can just drop him as if it never happened. I won't tell. It'd be great!

Other than that, I thought it was a fun moment. It had it's decent bits, but that said I also had some conflicting thoughts, given that I still think it's kind of early for these three to be so buddy buddy already, especially if they had just all teamed up. Whatever.
