- There's a scream that can't be silenced. It's rising. Growing louder and louder. It's the scream of a child abandoned, suddenly, long ago. As the scream echoed then in that alley, it echoes now in my mind. It penetrates all the dark places. It slams into the loss. It bounces against the regret... and the pain. He's gone. I'm abandoned again. My son is dead.

Synopsis for "Injustice: Gods Among Us - Chapter 16"
Harley Quinn is seen commanding the Asylum inmates to attack the Justice League and Insurgents, asking that they spare Green Arrow in the process; she thinks she has a crush on him. The Riddler lifts a large boulder over his head in an attempt to crush Cyborg's head, but can't think of a riddle fast enough. Green Arrow shoots a boxing glove arrow at his head and he drops the boulder.
Wonder Woman attempts to cut Solomon Grundy's hand off to try and free Robin, but he swats her away and into the bedrock around them. Barry runs to get her as Nightwing tells Superman that Grundy is already dead, and that there's no need to "hold back." Richard says he'll get Damian while Kal "release[s] some of that tension."
Kal uses his heat vision to cut Grundy's hand off and flies straight through his chest, leaving a large hole as Damian falls to the ground. Richard pries his fingers open and helps Damian up. Damian said he had it under control while Richard laughs at him, asking Damian if he was "lulling it into submission." Batman flies down from above and asks Nightwing and Robin to help him put the inmates back in their cells. Bruce destroys what's left of Grundy's head and leaves to put his corpse back in his cell and turn the dampeners on.
Damian and Richard fight off many inmates above. When Robin begins viciously beating the Riddler while he's on the ground. Nightwing yells at Robin for beating him while he's down. "Robin doesn't beat people while they're down!" Damian tells him to shut up, that he isn't Robin anymore, and throws one of his escrima at Richard's head. He doesn't expect the throw and is knocked back onto his head. His neck lands on a rock on the ground and breaks his neck, killing him.
Robin approaches Nightwing's corpse, visibly upset. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman come back up from the hole and order the Arkham inmates back into their cells. Bruce notices Damian kneeling over Dick's lifeless body. Damian is now crying, trying to say he's sorry to Bruce. Bruce is outraged and an emotional wreck, throwing Damian off of Richard's corpse. As the reactions of various characters, both hero and villain alike, are shown, Batman's quote from two chapters ago is repeated, this time identifying which of his sons had died. Batman leaves Arkham, abandoning Damian saying "My son is dead."
