The Batman characters were always supposed to be realistic. This wasn't out of nowhere, Damien has tried time and again to attack him like that to surprise him and do damage, this time he actually did it. That's how a lot of people die, just someone taking something too far, something going wrong and someone getting hurt. People's heads aren't as tough as you'd think.
There are no words...there is nothing left after this. Nightwing...NIGHTWING...Batman's best student, arguably as good as the man himself, the king of improvisation, the first Robin, and the guy who is roughly Daredevil level agile...gets taken out like this?
Even Batman is split between horrified and "WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?"
I felt the exact same way. I had flashback to the Who's The Boss episode where Jonathan dreamt he killed Tony by hitting him with a slingshot (showing my age a bit).
I was really expecting a fight, not a tantrum gone wrong.
