Shiva.

And thus begins what I argue is this book’s second most important female relationship. Cassandra Cain and Lady Shiva grow one of the most complex and interesting dynamics of any characters in the Bat Books, and it has everything to do with them as characters and not genetics, despite what later (much much later) revelations might try to push.

As you can tell by Cass’ face in the last panel, it’s game time.

Also: I feel compelled by my former Hetalia-side to point out that this French restaurant is called The Unicorn. I won’t waste anyone’s time with what that means, but I will say I find it FrUKing hilarious.

"She’s reading me. Predicting — Predicting moves was my defense! How’d she — Okay… Now you’re gonna — Nerve cluster strike. Paralyzed — neck down. Cheap.

Cassandra realizes with quite a bit of frustration that the very way Lady Shiva is defeating her and deflecting her attacks is through the same method Cass has lost herself. And, again, she is able to see what Shiva plans to utilize but is simply too slow to do anything about it.

Amusingly enough, Cass is far more aggravated at the “cheapness” of this ploy than she is at it disabling her. It’s a bit of Cass’ morbid humor coming through that continues to be something I just love about her and her series. All this terrible stuff happening and she’s more offended than anything else.
