In Gotham City, the Young Justice team fights Clayface, who easily defeats them. Aqualad is the last to fall, and Batman arrives just in time to shock the villain. Back at Mount Justice, Batman talks to Aqualad alone, dismissing a disappointed Robin. When Aqualad apologizes, Batman informs him that the team performed adequately, but Aqualad lacked focus as their leader. Aqualad admits that he's recently found himself dreaming more of Atlantis, and someone he left behind. Batman tells him that he needs to make a decision and make it soon...Read the full recap
Batman: You can split your time between the surface and the sea, but not your mind. Either you're here 100%, or you need to walk away. Make a decision, Kaldur, and make it soon.

Aqualad: Have you ever wondered what would have happened if I'd stayed behind, and you had become Aqualad?
Aqualad: No. Neither have I.
