Synopsis for "Red Son Rising, Part 3"

Batman arrives at Leslie Thompkin's clinic while she gives a tetanus shot to the girl Keri, and tells her that Jason is alive after she sends the kid home. He adds that he's acquired a more angrier personality than before and he thought that he might have come to visit her, since he always liked her. Many years ago, Leslie while treating the young Jason, worried how he received more injuries, than Dick ever did. As she told him that he was too stubborn and reckless. Jason claimed he could handle himself. Leslie chided him, saying that she had heard this from other kids before and he's bound to get involved in a fight with someone who he won't be able to easily handle like has done before.

As Batman tries to tell Leslie to contact him if Jason ever shows up to his clinic, she blames him for letting Jason run around as Robin, even though he was out of a control. Bruce reminds her that he was going to revoke his permission to Jason to remain a vigilante, but he ran off and he tried finding him. Though she agrees, she states that it was everyone's responsibility to look after him and he was responsible for what befell the kid, which made them responsible too. As she tells him to leave, she apologizes for berating him and states that after whatever has happened due to his vigilante lifestyle, he should probably stop being Batman.

Back in the Batcave, Alfred tells Tim that though he never saw Jason again after he ran away, his ruthless attacks on criminals later on did get noticed by the Bat-Family. As he struck out out on his own, Jason started brutally beating up any criminals he found, showing restraint only when they surrendered. The worst punishment however was reserved for Batman's usual foes, whom he showed no mercy at all. Alfred then shows Tim the surveillance footage of Jason's most brutal attack, which was duel with Killer Croc on a ship in Gotham Harbor. After being kicked from behind, Croc ripped off the battleship's cannon and tried hitting Jason with it. The brutal Robin after dodging it proceeded to shoot at him, making him fall in the water.

Though Croc had survived, the reputation of Commissioner Gordon and Batman himself was being stained due to Jason's attacks. When he interrogated Sid the Squid, who had deep connections in the Gotham underworld, Batman was told about a rumor that Robin would strike at Joker next. Harley and Joker meanwhile were out on a date, though Joker instead took her to a carnival instead of doing something romantic. Becoming frustrated, she came after him with a bulldozer. She later started destroying every place they had gone together as a couple, and Jason decided to strike. She pretended to agree to help her find the Joker, allowing the clown to shock him from behind, making him realize the "breakup" was a charade all along.
