I doubt they'll kill Tim; he's basically a franchise character, almost on the level of the Big Three. And I think the recent deaths around him are meant (in part) to further emphasize his "heroic" nature - despite the cost, he squares his shoulders and continues to fight the good fight. A point which would become rather moot if they killed him off.

With all of these recent deaths, they've got us exactly where they want us - concerned for our favorite characters, because it seems that no one is immune to getting the axe. But even this has its limits, and I'm pretty sure Tim is one of those core characters they want to keep safe.

However, I can see them having Tim taking a brief trip to the Dark Side for a time. If only to see the sights.

I'm not worried that they might kill Tim, for all the reasons you pointed out and also I think the writers are having too much fun torturing the poor guy. And I really don't think he'll go all Vader on us either. I think they are going to take Tim exactly were Bruce was when Tim showed up in the first place, sinking too far into the darkness, but worse. Tim is in the same quicksand with not too many people to pull him out. Conner and Bart are dead (for right now, I have faith), Cassie is too rapped up her own problems, none of the other Titans know him well enough to get that close, all he has is Bruce and Dick, and Dick we will probably see make his attemp in the Ra's arc.

I don't know, I really hope he does show his strength and pull thru all this a better hero, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I have to say I'm getting sick and tired of the "Dark Robin" we seem to have been getting a lot of for the... well years now I think about it. Partly, admittedly because DC keeps killing his family and friends so some mourning is expected.

We have Batman for coping with the darkness, and reminding us of tragedy as all consuming grief. The role of Robin has traditionally been to be the counterpoint to that; showing us that with Batman's support he isn't going to the same dark place as Bruce went and will find some joy in life.

We've seen Tim reach out to Dick for support in the past, just after Tim talked a potential roof jumper down. We should see that again. Tim isn't alone anymore, he has a new father and the ultimate big brother on hand.

But does THIS Bart? I mean if they found out about him before I doubt he'd still be with them now as a good guy.
