Synopsis for "A League of Their Own, Part 2"
Jefferson is in the site of his school, remembering Tina, a teacher who worked there, who was one of the victims of Ra's al Ghul's attack. He confronts Batman, who tries to make him understand that Ra's way of defeating you is by changing you into your darkest self. Jefferson though, he wants to leave the Outsiders: he's not made for this. Going out, he finds Tatsu and confronts with her. Katana is able to convince him to come back, but he needs time alone before returning to Gotham.
Meanwhile, Bruce finds and takes with him Cass and Duke, telling them they should stop and think before moving again, as Ra's is trying to change them. He's especially mad at Duke, telling him he must not trust the new powers Ishmael gave him with his touch. While they are talking, with Cassandra telling him she will never become like her mother and that Batman should stop protecting her, Superman appears. He wants to talk with Bruce alone: first he tries to touch the matter of Alfred's death, but Bruce tells him that's not the moment. Then, he starts talking about Jefferson, about the fact that he cannot do things the Batman way, that Jefferson is another kind of man. Bruce tells Clark he doesn't need his opinion, and that soon it will be Superman himself to ask for help after revealing his identity to the world.
In the end, Black Lightning finds an unexpected guest in his hotel room: Lady Shiva. She knows the Bat does not have what it takes to end Ra's, but she wants to know if Jefferson does.
