** The worst part of it all may well be seeing the affairaffair through Batman's eyes. [[spoiler:Keep in mind that like Harvey, Bruce has spent most of the issue being subsumed by his darker side, with part of his determination in finding Harvey doubtless stemming from his own desperate hope that both of their psychological tears can be remedied after all. Not only is what he finds a brutal refutation to hope that Harvey will ever heal, but also the suggestion that ''neither will he''.]] It's telling that this is the ''only'' time in the comic where Batman treats an enemy not with contempt or rage, but genuine sadness. However, there ''is'' a HeartwarmingMoment when [[spoiler:he gives Harvey a CooldownHug.]]

* For the past ten years, Harvey Dent's been undergoing psychiatric and cosmetic reconstruction into his old self... And the day he's released, it all begins to fall apart. [[spoiler:It turns out his obsession with duality has begun to subside not as a result of restored mental health, but because ''two-face'' is subsuming the original Harvey Dent. Harvey then tries to hold Gotham Towers for five million dollars' ransom, implied to be an effort of repayment towards Bruce out of a twisted sense of gratitude. During a fight with Batman, he's saved from a possible suicide attempt and, rendered helpless, suffers a complete breakdown in Batman's arms.]]
