Synopsis for "Bad to the Bone"

Johnny Warren holds a gun to Robin's head. He disarms Warren, and the two fight. Robin outclasses him but lets Warren reclaim his gun. Robin uses a tangler grenade to freeze Warren's arm, but Warren fires anyway and blows off his entire right forearm. Warren pulls out another gun with his left hand and shoots Debbie Braunweis. She'll die if she doesn't receive immediate medical treatment, and while Robin is tending to her, Warren gets away with the stolen object from S.T.A.R. Labs.

Robin admits to Batman that his overconfidence cost him the collar and nearly cost Debbie her life. Yet he believes that if he had arrived sooner, he could have saved Ollie too and asks Batman for his own ride. Batman tells him to focus on how he's going to explain his black eye to his folks.

Jack and Dana are furious that Tim is home so late and horrified by his injury. Tim tells them he tried out for football after school.

Tim is hanging out with Bernard Dowd when Bernard's crush Darla Aquista enters the restaurant with a posse of football players. Tim distracts her friends, but when Bernard goes to talk to Darla, she asks him whether Tim is single.

Later, Robin recounts this story to Spoiler, who is more concerned about Darla's attractiveness and their own cooling relationship than Tim's friendship with Bernard.

Warren has gone home to his mother, who fixes him up. The stolen item speaks to Warren, but his mother can't hear it. Against his will, Warren stabs the item into his chest and faints. When he wakes, the item in his chest tells him to call his mother into the room because it's hungry.

Batman interrupts Tim's training session with Alfred to show Tim his new motorcycle.
