As the issue begins, the "Death of the Family" attack by the Joker has already hit Nightwing hard, as his friend Jimmy and ex-girlfriend Raya were both killed. The Joker carved an invitation in Raya's stomach for Dick to attend a "surprise party hosted by Haly's Circus."
As Dick arrives at Amusement Mile, the Joker has a gruesome scene set up for him: the corpses of past circus performers filling the circus tent. Nightwing goes ballistic, but Joker has hidden explosives in the bodies, releasing his toxin. Dick gets his "rebreather" to his mouth for protection, but he's forced to watch as all his hard work on revitalizing the Amusement Mile is destroyed by the Joker's well-placed explosives.
Nightwing starts to beat up Joker (between all the Bat-family punches this month, surely Joker's getting a few broken bones, no?). But of course, the Joker has another surprise. Telling Dick that he's "the one that makes my Batman the weakest," Joker reveals that he has Joker-ized dozens of Dick's beloved friends from Haly's Circus. The smiling zombie-like crowd comes toward a truly disturbed Nightwing in a nightmarish scene.
But the creepiest Joker-ized friend is the little girl named Christina (in an early issue, Dick swore to her that he'd protect her). This revelation breaks Nightwing. Joker hands Christina a spiked mallet, and the Joker-ized girl knocks Dick out. Joker drags his body somewhere and, as Nightwing comes back into consciousness.... Joker pulls out a silver platter covered in blood.
Like most of the other Bat-books this month, the Nightwing "silver platter" story will play out in Batman #17.

By far the best drawn NIghtwing issue of the DCNU. Really beautiful.
