Barbara Gordon: Batman.
Batman: How is he?
Barbara Gordon: Not good.
Batman: It's my fault. Should have gotten there first. Checked it out before...

Beneath the cowl is a genuine human being
9 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the things I've always loved about The Animated Series is that it never really puts Bruce Wayne in the backseat to any villain. And 'I Am the Night' is precisely that sort of character study that the show just seems to get right, revealing the flawed person inside the costume. As mean as he can be in the pursuit of justice (or to the people around him) his intentions are pure, and no one could possibly be harder on themselves than he is. Just when he's wracked with inner turmoil and self-doubt, Gotham steps in to show just how badly he's needed. Brilliant use of Commissioner Gordon to really hammer home that point, and overall a very touching episode.
