* The revelation that [[spoiler:Vicki Vale is the main antagonist offers a very serious problem in Episode 4. Since Alfred probably said, if you chose to name Montoya as the one who killed Falcone, that would result in problems with police, who is to say Vicki wont expose that once Bruce is in Arkham?]]
* When investigating the leader of the Children of Arkham [[spoiler: Vicki!]] during episode 4: [[spoiler: Bruce drops by Vicki's adoptive parent's house and finds both parents dead in a quite gruesome way, at the moment Bruce only assumes that killing the father was to take control of his transportation business and because Vicki didn't need them anymore]] but there's something else that might be worth noting:[[spoiler: Bruce refers to the death of one of the parents as "if Vicki had a vendetta against them" and she seemed to have gone out of her way to explicitly beat her own father to death with a belt. Now, when Bruce finds Vicki's adoptive brother, the child at some point asks "if he will go to punishment" for what happened and later Batman can mention to Gordon that the parents were getting a "pretty significant stipend", add that the family pictures imply the child was adopted when Vicki was an adult and not around anymore and one can get the idea that maybe the couple exploits the system by adopting children for the benefits and then abuse the child in some form.]]
** This was, sadly, confirmed in episode 5, when [[spoiler: Batman goes into the TortureCellar that Vicki had been placed in when she was a child]]. Even Batman can express sympathy [[SympathyForTheDevil despite everything that's gone on since then]].



* During the Villain Route [[spoiler: The Joker tases Batman after the fight at Ace Chemical and when Bruce wakes up he's dressed up in a suit which implies The Joker saw him naked while personally dressing him up since he wants to keep Bruce's secret identity safe. Squick. Selina is in her casual attire but she says she was caught at the facility so that means the Joker stripped her and clothed her himself too.]]

** And with The Riddler, Catwoman alludes to him having changed drastically since she'd met him in Europe, so he likely wasn't as cut-throat as he recently became - she even mentions in Episode 3 that his staff had been purely for show at that point. So when he was on a crime-spree in Gotham, while he was still playing CriminalMindGames by taunting police with clues, he probably hadn't hit AbsurdlyHighStakesGame levels yet.

* In Season 2, Episode 1, TheReveal about [[spoiler: the explosion at Wayne Tower being caused by a missile is bizarre in that ''nobody'' thought it was external - in a city as large as Gotham, you'd imagine at least a handful of witnesses would have spotted the missile speeding its way there]].


** To be fair besides the Riddler, all of the villains Batman faces in the Tell Tale verse only started showing up after Batman began operating in Gotham. But despite most of them having motivations outside of Batman (Catwoman only came to Gotham for a job, Lady Arkham and Penguin were on a dark path long before Batman though it's implied by their dialogue that they were inspired to act because of Batman's actions.) it's hard for people to not associate Batman with the new breed of super Criminal plaguing Gotham regardless of actual culpability. ( Joker and Two Face notwithstanding.)

* Throughout the Vigilante Path, [[spoiler: whenever John laughs, you can hear him hiccuping and groaning with every laugh, always sounding like his laughter is restrained. It's only when John embraces his insanity and villainy that the laughter feels natural and clear, with no hiccups or restraint.]]
