* TheScapegoat: [[FlatEarthAtheist Doctor Arkham]] can't admit to himself that the asylum was overrun by demons, so at the end, Batman suggests Scarecrow must have released fear gas into the vents. He has Crane put in isolation for three months. Which makes even less sense, given Batman's experiences with the Justice League, but he could've suggested that as a cover story.

* ChekhovsGun: Aaron left Arkham after Killer Croc bit off his hand, only coming back when Jeremiah points out that A: he's still gutsy enough to work there, and B: as long as he keeps it vaguely under control, he can abuse the more violent inmates to his heart's content. The problem with that is [[spoiler:though everyone though Croc had swallowed it, Junkyard Dog ''kept the severed hand''. Since he came back, inmates were able to [[BloodyBiometric use it as a key]]!]]
