Summary:
There were two covers for this issue. This story covers how Stephanie comes to wear the costume. Dick appears in one picture, watching Stephanie fight and revealing he knows it isn't Cassie wearing the costume. Interesting is the self talk where he muses "Who are you? Just a girl playing pretned in a hand-me-down costume... a girl breaking promises she never should have made. Who am I?" While part of this is Dick's thinking and the other Stephanie, it appears to be written this way to show Dick feels the same way.

After:

Batgirl #6
Summary:
Dick is incredibily unimpressed when he comes across Stephanie as Batgirl. He and Barabara argue. When Barbara says -"Well, Bruce isn't here is he," she knows immediately she has taken things too far. Dick pulls the mask one and storms off telling her to rein Stephanie in or he will. I have to say, this is one of those, the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree moments. (g)

Story Arc:
Batgirl Rising
Point of Origin (3 parts) --- Field Test (1 part) --- Core Requirements (3 parts) --- The Flood (4 parts)
After:
Batgirl #5
Next:
Batgirl #7
Summary:
Loved this story. We see some of those wonderful Dick moments. First, we see Jim and Batman together - the respect they share leaps off the page. Batgirl and Robin - I think the writer is going for a repeat of the early relationship between Dick and Barabara. He sort of pulls it off. The best part of this comic are the Dick and Barbara scenes. Things like Dick has a warmth to his voice that Bruce never did. The fact that Barbara misses the lighter side of Dick. My favourite moment... Dick turns and smiles up at Oracle's camera and says "Pretty please." Lovely moment.



Story ends with Batman injured and the baddies closing in.

Batgirl Rising
Point of Origin (3 parts) --- Field Test (1 part) --- Core Requirements (3 parts) --- The Flood (4 parts)
After:
Batgirl #6
Next:
Batgirl #8
Summary:
Batman is assisted by Batgirl and Robin and they defeat the baddies. Everyone ends up in the cave... the two kids bickering and Barbara and Dick discussing things in general. Barabara reflects on how 'easy things are with him'. It is clear she cares very deeply for Dick and that Dick is still find his feet shouldering Bruce's legacy. One of my favourite moments in this comic is below.

Summary:
The story opens with Barbara living an idyllic life in the suburbs - with Dick as her husband and her father, Tim and Damian all part of the family. She knows something is wrong but can't put her finger on it. In the last issue, she was put in a slumber state so the Calculator could see her secrets. It is interesting to see that in Barbara's perfect work, she would be married to Dick.
