If you look at the logo, it has the same design and colors as Plastic Man's costume. Then I think in the brief exterior shot of the factory, you see the logo again.

    I still don't like Pyg or Toad, but I still enjoyed the episode. As others have said, Batman and Katana make for an interesting partnership. Oh, and I guess now Jason works with the League of Assassins.

    Maybe it says something about me, but I was bothered that he regarded having an affair as a criminal act.

    It's possible that her situational awareness is more focused on direct threats to her or her mission. For instance she might notice a bulge in someone's jacket may mean he's carrying a weapon or someone watching her. Batman seems to take it all in, stealing, cheating, lying etc.

    I thought that this was an okay episode. Pyg and Toad still don't really do much for me as villains, but they were at least more threatening here than in their debut. I liked seeing more of Batman and Katana's partnership. I really liked Batman knowing about certain details due to his life as Bruce Wayne. It's an interesting way to address the psychological aspects of the character, along with the fact that he can't turn off his crime detector. Jason joining the League of Assassins at the end was a surprising ending. Overall, I thought that it was a decent episode. I hope that this week's episode will be more interesting to watch.

    Oh, my mistake. I need to keep up with the schedule for this show more. Thanks for the clarification.

    Thanks. So it was more an Easter egg or fan service not a sign Plastic Man may be in this universe.

    He would make a good criminal and reformed ally for this universe and he hasn't been done much in animation.

    Yup. Sorry for the initial confusion, reflection.

    It was hinted this past SDCC that other heroes would be appearing but they play both sides. Just thinking about it, could make for an interesting interpretation of Plastic Man if done right. But seems so easy to not get right because it is Plastic Man afterall.

    Again, just getting caught up now...

    Another enjoyable episode, with some outstanding moments. I have to say I enjoyed the more leisurely pace the episode had and some of the brillant Batman moments.

    The only thing that bugged me was that Katana seemed much more witty this week than ususal... almost playing the goofy sidekick. Very strange.

    4/5

    ::sigh:: And the part of the Boy Wonder will be played by...

    Actually, I didn't mind it as much. Katana should talk back to Batman and everything, but if Babs joins the team and we ever get Robin...you know, we need everyone to have their distinctive voices.

    Maybe he just meant it's something he's noticed that someone is trying to hide. What bugged me is he called the criminal acts before they happened. Believable in some cases, but weird in others. It was a cool scene, though.
