Things take a sad turn
20 December 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

'Growing Pains' is one of the darker episodes of the revamp season and it's a memorable one because it brings back a great villain. That's partially it, but it also gives the new Robin something serious to work with. This is a well-executed story, using the Boy Wonder to touch on themes of neglect and an abusive home.

Surprisingly, this isn't one I remember very well from its original broadcast, and I guess that's why it remained fresh to me. It's twisted, but not heavy-handed, and it's definitely a standout in a wildly inconsistent season.

8/10
