I'm just doing a super quick review since I'm so far behind.
This issue of Batgirl could be a solid or even great addition to the series...if it could just overcome the weight of its own creation. The entire situation is full of so many coincidences that it fractures believability. We have the whole setup and execution of James Jr., the way Commissioner Gordon randomly decides that this is the straw that broke the camel's back and that he is going to persecute Batgirl without ever getting her story, the relationship with Ricky that bloomed on infertile ground, the sacrifice of the Batgirl mantle which could be a nice symbolic gesture but really seems to come out of nowhere, and I could go on, but I'm trying to be brief. The problem is that I just can't see all this scenario where Commissioner Gordon shoots Ricky without rolling my eyes at the whole saga that led us to this point.
While my tolerance for this arc's poor framework was already wearing thin, the issue doesn't do much to ease my pain. Babs, without her gadgets, takes on a couple dozen cops without them subduing her. Nobody has a taser? Then, we have a long dry spell without action in the middle of the issue where we do at least see some quality character interaction, and props to Simone for improving in this area, but we still are watching a miserable Barbara, and we've seen enough of that already. Finally, we get the setup for the next issue which includes a certain character being used as a hostage once more, and that character really deserves more respect than to be little more than a way point marker for the hero and the story.
It's not a horrible issue, but I'm tired of coincidences, and the end of the issue should make it pretty clear just how meaningless the move to give up the Batgirl suit was on the part of Barbara.
