Cassie has had an absolutely fantastic run in her time in DC comics, growing in leaps and bounds both as a hero and as a young woman. Unfortunately, her exceptionally well-written relationship with Connor Kent ended with his death, and suddenly it seemed impossible for anyone to write her without dwelling on her grief. Every effort to make her grow past in seemed to make her angrier and more emotionally distant.
It's probably a real testament to how complete a character she had become that we can easily perceive the change in her personality as she undergoes such a tragic loss, but that's always been what's so fantastic about this character, that her personal growth has been an integral part in her story.
We clung very closely to her story as depicted through her pre-52 career, even including her time taking over as leader of the Teen Titans after the death of Connor. We'd like to alter the way she handles her grief a bit, allow her to grow through it without succumbing so much to her anger, but otherwise, almost everything that makes her great shines through in her every appearance.
