I don't know about this issue.

Cameron Stewart is a good artist but it doesn't seem to fit Grant's story.

And I'm not too sure about Dick's characterization either.

I read this last night and I'm not sure what to think about it either. The art was alright. The story was written in such a way that it feels like I missed an issue but I haven't. Was this a cross-over with another series, because that's what it feels like.
I really enjoyed this issue, and thought it was a return to form in regards to the art. Morrison always does some chronal jumps between issues and often between scenes. I actually found these to be less confusing than usual. But, no, it's not a crossover with anything, although it does reference Batwoman's past from 52 and Detective Comics. I remembered that Damian was paralyzed at the end of the Red Hood story, so that scene in the "Bacta tank" didn't come as a surprise either.

What, in particular, did you feel you were missing?
Like who the girl was with Batman. Later it said it was the Squire. I don't even know who that is. Plus when Batwoman showed up it felt like there must have been something going on before that. The Damian stuff made sense. But Dick being in London and trying to find the Lazarus pit. I didn't hate the issue it felt like there should have been some sort of transition after the events of the last issue. That's just me. I haven't read a lot of Morrison's work to get a feel for his style.

Yep, for good or ill the source of your confusion is trademark Morrison. Knight and Squire go back to the Silver Age as the British Batman and Robin, and recently appeared in Morrison's issues of JLA Classified and Batman. Squire was in Battle for the Cowl, too. Here's some info on Squire.
