When Bullock botches a sting operation, he Montoya and rookie Wilkes, are questioned by Internal Affairs.

Review: An excellent episode portraying what other people think of the Batman, in this case, a rookie cop, Officer Montoya, and Detective Bullock. The rookie's story is especially good since it depicts Batman as some sort of meta-human even though the viewer knows what is really occurring.

Another 'no villain' episode that proves the villains don't run the show. The only hope of a surprise villain was in the mystery "Boss" who stuck to the shadows. It would have been interesting for him to be revealed as a long lost Bat-villain, but it was never bridged off of. Not much of a complaint though since the episode is still enjoyable.

If you enjoyed "It's Never Too Late" or "Robin's Reckoning" you should definitely enjoy this episode!
