What just happened? Finally escaping from the holding cell, Tim Drake comes face to face with Mr. Oz. Now knowing the true identity of Mr. Oz, Tim questions if what Mr. Oz is telling him is true about the purpose of the prison or if it is all a lie. Left all alone after hearing there are other forces watching, Tim tries to send a message to Batman. The message is received, but is it Batman who really picked up the message? Also who else is trapped in this prison? Some doors should not be opened.

Final Thoughts: After a long time wondering what really happened to Tim Drake (Red Robin), we get to see where he is.  At first like many, I thought Mr. Oz was going to be someone that was going to have ties with a certain character that changed the DC universe. I was pretty surprised to see his real identity and also as to why he took Tim Drake away. Many still unanswered questions left, as to who is this person that has an eye on Tim Drake that isn’t just Mr. Oz? Finally, wait until the last few panels you’re going to lose it.
