    The board of Wayne Enterprises doesn't seem interested in hiring him again. Which means he is free to help Alfred and Bruce


    Riddler: well he is a repressed nerd for lack of a better description. Her rejecting him may be the start of him going down the dark path but I don't think it will be the sole cause. In Batman TAS he was out for revenge for the CEO that stole his ideas and also taunted him that if he was so smart why wasn't he rich?

    I think it will be a combination of: broken heart/his love of the game/the fact that few are his intellectual equal (in his opinion), the realization that he could be extremely wealthy

    The stash of blackmail data could be on Loeb's office or hidden on that farm, or somewhere that only Loeb knows and can access. Also it is likely that he will set up a "poison pill" as it were where if he is removed from office or killed that the data goes out, now that he knows Gordon is on to him. Gordon though is smart to keep Loeb as the commissioner for now. Another Falcone agent will take his place, and Gordon has leverage on him, which makes Gordon now very hard to oust from the police dept. Of course Gordon could still have an....accident.... ;\)

    Gordon: unfortunately he has compromised his integrity a bit in this episode. He has resorted to blackmailing the blackmailer as it were by using the leverage to get Bullock in the clear and to set himself up as President of the Police system. He has also made a deal with Penguin, and now owes him a favor, no questions asked. Bullock knows of the deal but he now owes Gordon big time and will stand by him as much as possible now.

    Alfred: I like him. The actor is the son of the Third Doctor and he plays Alfred a bit differently then we are used to. We are used to Alfred acting as the guiding voice for Batman to help keep him grounded, and of course medical aid for when Batman is injured. This time though we have Alfred as the guardian/surrogate father and protector of Bruce Wayne. He is trying his best but being a parent is new to him, plus he has to balance his authority as Bruce's guardian with the fact that Bruce is also his boss and that Bruce ultimately has final say on things.

That's just me Alfred usually is seen as Bruce's parental figure but I don't see that here. Alfred lets the boy do whatever he wants.

I hate to say this but the scenes I hate most on this show are the scenes with Alfred and/or Bruce.

    As to Alfred getting Bruce to lie to Gordon, he's teaching him that you don't rat out a friend or squad mate. It is a mixed lesson as Bruce is collaborating in lying to Gordon.

But I would say that Batman would apprehend a friend who tried to kill a colleague in front of a child. I don't think Batman would cover that up.
