Synopsis for "The Boys"
Nightwing wants to spend some time with Robin and combines this with a little training session as both heroes hop onto a freight train - their eyes covered by blindfolds. While balancing on top of a container wagon on one leg, Robin tells Dick about his girlfriend Spoiler being pregnant although Tim was not responsible for this. Dick says that Spoiler is not a good choice as a girlfriend, but Tim does not think Dick is the right person to judge about this regarding his history with rather complicated women. Robin is surprised to hear that Dick also was involved with the Huntress recently.
After handling some turbulence on the train wagon, both talk about Jason Todd. Tim thinks he is too cautious sometimes compared to the former Robin, but is pleased to hear that Nightwing is not fearless himself. Batman, however, might be another story in that regard.
Suddenly, Nightwing and Robin are attacked by members of the gang called Rail Devils which is specialized on robbing trains. But even blindfolded the heroes get rid of their opponents quite easily and dump them into a shallow river.
Before jumping on a train driving back to Blüdhaven, Nightwing reveals that he took the department exam and intends to become a cop ...
