The Riddler is seen seated with the rest of the jury during the trial, but disappears before the they turn in their verdict. Strangely enough, he has no speaking role either (much like the Scarecrow). See more »

At this point, it's safe to say that if Mark Hamill and Arleen Sorkin are in the credits, it's a great episode. And 'Trial' is further proof of this. A fine episode, packed with villains, great gags (most coming from Joker and Harley) and a whirlwind pace. Having the Arkham inmates force Batman to stand trial in a kangaroo court is a great way of addressing the big question: is batman responsible for their criminal turns? Of course not, but it's prime fodder for a kids show. It's comic book philosophy 101 and the question tends to loom over some Batman discussions.
But philosophy isn't what's memorable about this. 'Trial' is as colorful as they come.
