myconius - I didn’t see it as objectively bad as other issues of this run, and despite the irksome pretentiousness it conveyed how Alfred felt fairly well, so I give that credit. Why it happened and that it happened at all is a separate can of beans. Detective Chimp - Trying to get engagement numbers up? Your comment is nonsense.

i'm just looking at is as a whole. this really felt manipulative and very unearned. this plot point was completely unnecessary and adds nothing but cheap shock value.

I liked parts of this issue. Before I get to that though let me start with what I hated about this issue......
1. Alfred's lack of faith in Bruce. After all the things Alfred has witnessed Bruce/Batman over come and defeat how could Alfred so easily give up believing in his being able to beat Bane and Thomas.? Alfred above anyone should have faith in Bruce. So to have him lie and bring about more

So much fun. While I do get that this is definitely not for everyone (I, for one, do not really enjoy reading about Batman fighting the Batman Who Laughs for the 18th time this year, but I'm respecting everyone's opinion). This was a nice throwback to the episodic Batman stories from Golden/Silver age, with Alfred delivering the narrative. The artwork really suited this story as well.
