It was pretty much exactly what I feared. Extremely OOC, complete disregard of their previous relationship, killing attempts are just shrugged off and everything we get is pretty much a “Sorry, that I tried to kill you, bro.” over a shared breakfast.
Which in itself reads a lot like a bad fanfiction. Eating waffles together on a veranda? Really? Really?
“Hey, I tried to kill you and you actually hate what I represent, but I am cool with that. Lets be bros.”
“Oh, okay fine. I am sorry too that I tried to kill you, lets eat waffles.”
(I wish I would be joking but that is pretty much how it goes)
I was also extremely baffled by how their relationship was explained. Apparently, Tim assigned Jason to get him information about Cassie. But why he did that is not explained.
How did this happen? What made Tim consider asking Jason? How did he find Jason? Why did Jason agree to do this for him? Because he got information in return? But why did Tim not sort out any other of his actual allies first? Namely Barbara, whose past as Oracle is still intact in the reboot and who was the primary information broker of the Superhero community? Surely she could have helped him with his request? Why Jason?
I really couldn’t wrap my mind around that.
And no, I don’t hate the ship. On the contrary, they could have a really interesting dynamic and I do like the general idea of them getting over themselves and trying to be brothers. But the execution in RHatO #8 was just so poor. So blatantly OOC and illogical.
I will be in my corner, crying.
