Screen Grabs


DRIVER: You sure you wanna get off here?
DICK: Yeah. Hey, ever pick up this guy?
DRIVER: Can't says I have/ Who is he? Or old man, or somethin'?
DICK: Yeah, something.
LENNIE (from inside dumpster): Hey! Let me out! There's roaches in here! Roaches!
DICK: Where we goin'?
ZUCCO: Don't tell me what I gotta worry about. I'm not back in town five minutes-- five minutes-- and he's on my tail. You don't know the bat. He don't let up! He's the dark angel of death, man, and he wants me!
ROBIN: Stuff your advice, Batman! You and your stone cold heart! You don't know how I feel! How could you!?
ROBIN: You were right, y'know, not bringing me along. You knew I'd take it too personally.
BATMAN: It wasn't that, Robin. It wasn't that at all. Zucco's taken so much, caused you so much pain. I couldn't stand the thought that he might-- take you too.
ROBIN: Come on, partner, it's been a long night.

Review: This episode certainly seems bland after the amazing first part to it. This part seemed more of a 'lets throw in some excitement for the kids' episode after the lack of action in the first one. It was also very disappointing that this episode headed where it did. Although it was nice to hear that Batman actually cares for Robin, it would have made a better lead in to Nightwing if Robin had let his anger get the best of him.

The animation was horrible compared to part one, or most episodes for that matter. There were many continuity errors and characters varied in size and in shape. There wasn't very many powerful scenes either, or smart dialogue.
