Review: Bar none, this episode has the funniest scene in BTAS continuity - Alfred flying the Batwing. It was very funny to see Alfred quipping with the Batwing's Computer, especially when it stated "You're funeral". Another great scene, maybe one of the most dramatic in the series, is when Bruce gets his memory back. The whole little scene is quite powerful, especially with the music.

The idea of the story was good, but it seemed sort of rushed. If it were a two parter, it probably wouldn't have been as good though due to boredom.

The animation was not that great, but most characters stayed in proportion. The only bad looking character was Boss Biggis. His stomach seemed to be expanding and moving like it was some sort of Clayface appendage. This episode would have greatly benefited with animation like "Robin's Reckoning part 1".
