Synopsis for "Red Son Rising, Part 2"

Alfred continues to tell Tim how Jason became a Robin. Though Jason subdued Firefly, Bruce became upset at him following him and getting into danger. The two later acrimoniously argued at the Batcave, until Alfred intervened and demanded they stop or leave the vigilante life permanently. Jason explained to Bruce that he wasn't like Dick and all he wanted was a chance to prove himself, promising to show that he can trust him. Bruce happily accepted and the two soon became the new Batman-Robin duo. Though he proved effective as a team member, Jason also derived fun in hurting Batman's rogues, reserving the worst for the more violent ones.

During one Halloween night, Scarecrow used the broadcast signals to drive the city into panic, while holding a news station hostage with his Skeleton Crew. Jason soon bust in and kicked him in the face, despite earlier planning to enter stealthily with Batgirl and Batman. Scarecrow gets confused as to why they aren't paralyzed by fear, before learning they're wearing signal blockers. As he tried throwing a fear-toxin grenade, Jason knocked it out of his hand and ripped his mask off to expose him to fear, before punching him out of the news station's broken window. Batman rescued him and berated Jason for almost killing him, which Jason was happy about since it would send other criminals a message.

Joker indeed got the message and started preparing to take Jason down, while Alfred questioned Bruce about Jason's violent methods. Bruce however refused to say he had made a mistake in making him Robin, before Alfred showed him the results of his test on Jason's costume, which confirmed he wasn't ever infected by Scarecrow's Fear Toxin. Bruce then admitted he already knew the truth, which Jason became upset about after overhearing and tried to leave the Wayne Manor. As Bruce tried to stop him, he kicked him away and stole the Robin Suit, before leaving the Batcave on the Batcycle. Alfred tells Tim that Bruce did see Jason once again after that, which he considers was his life's worst tragedy, but it may become worse now that he's back.

Batman later arrives at the Den, where he had first met Jason, and is soon confronted by him. As Bruce questions him, Jason reveals he disappeared from Gotham after he left him to die during their last encounter with the Joker and after recovering, adopted the new disguise of the Red Hood, similar to the mask his brother Danny was made to wear before dying. As he states he'll soon get to everyone on his hit list, Bruce asks him to come home. Jason mocks him for being oblivious to the Den being a trap due to his emotions, before shooting at the whiskey bottles filled with gasoline. As the Den explodes, Batman is forced to escape and sees Red Hood fleeing, knowing this will end in the deaths of the Bat-Family or Jason's.
