Synopsis for "Year Of Blood, Part One"
Robin stands before Ambush in his Bialyan mansion, Ambush grows increasingly abrasive and dismissive of young Damian which annoys the boy. Once the old man has made his ludicrous offer Robin retorts as a feather drops past Ambush's head and he looks up to see Goliath - a large red bat-monster - eating his prized bird. Using this as a distraction Damian then knocks the man's teeth out.
He reminisces back to the Batcave when he was training when one day he fell down a hole. Later he received a video message alerting him that Goliath had escaped and he races to help.
Unbeknown to the boy wonder, in Gotham Harbor a girl dived below the depths to retrieve the mask of NoBody - a man whom Damian had killed. Above waters she cries and calls to her deceased father before disappearing without a trace.
Eventually reaching Al Ghul island Damian hesitates before returning to the chamber of his "Year of Blood", only going in to retrieve Goliath's whistle. Returning to the chaos on Bialya, Damian blows the Bat Whistle which frees him and Goliath, taking them both home though Damian passes out from exhaustion.
He dreams of the dead; Dick Grayson first then his mother's empty grave. The dream soon turns into a nightmare and he wakes up back on Al Ghul island determined to make amends for his Year of Blood; a year of tests to train him into the ideal assassin and leader of the League of Assassins. He and Goliath decide that they will make this their next mission... atonement. Little do they know that from the shadows the girl watches them both.
In Nanoa Parbat a figure emerges from the ground and attacks Damian's mother who is alive, though not for much longer.
