So, Score Me

I think a lot about the ending to The Dark Knight with the Two Boats and The Prisoner’s Dilemma — 

Everyone on “Ordinary People” boat wants to murder all the “Bad People” in order to survive and one guy on the boatful of Convicts (with No Fear and The Killer Instinct, acting effectively AS Batman) is willing to kill himself and everyone else on his boat in order to Save the “Ordinary People”, and it’s The Cons (and not the fearful prison guards) who are ALL 100% behind him — because, like The Samurai, the convict understands that he is already DEAD.

And it is better to be alive.
