After Damian died Alfred stopped letting anyone disobey Bruce’s orders to stay in the cave. And for a while, no one even wanted to argue.
The first time Tim tried to convince Dick to help him go after Bruce on a mission they’d been ordered off of Alfred overheard it. The reprimand Tim received for his suggestion has gone down as the harshest Alfred has ever given. After that no one even considered crossing Alfred’s follow Bruce’s instructions line.
Once Damian was back things didn’t change very much. In fact it wasn’t until after Damian had been back a month that Alfred could watch the kid leave even the house without worrying. The whole first week he forbade Damian even leaving the manor grounds.
Once they’d established that Damian’s powers made him practically invulnerable Alfred was a little more lenient on his rule as long as things didn’t look too bad.
After Damian lost his powers? You bet Alfred was back to being super strict on the rule. Damian learned very early on that crossing Alfred on this was a bad idea (he hadn’t believed Tim’s story, but now he did)
As time went on Alfred finally let up on the rule, but it was mostly because so much had happened.
All the kids were out of the manor most of the time, with Dick in Spyral, Jason running around the world, Tim with the Titans, and Damian on his redemption quest (something Alfred would have forbade had he learned of it before Damian brought home Goliath and introduced him to Maya)
Plus he had his hands full with amnesiac Bruce. So yes, he let the rule slide, more so because he couldn’t monitor the danger than anything.
Even so, Alfred made Damian agree to check with him on a regular (if not daily) basis to make sure the kid was ok. If anything seemed even slightly off he was ready to send in one of the family to make sure he was ok, secret year of redemption or not.
Every time Damian was even a little late checking in Alfred would get this flutter of fear that he might not ever check back in. The fear was quickly erased the moment Damian did call, but still. And every time Damian came back home or to the cave Alfred would absently touch Damian, on his hand, or by ruffling his hair, even hug him, just to make sure Dami was really there. Anything to remind him that the kid was ok, more than ok. Alive.
Anyways can we please praise the Lego batman movies for incorporating our beautiful Spanish into the movie, it was really nice to see batman and Robin saying Spanish words and then having batman give the audience a brief definition such as “padre” idk about you but little things like that make me happy because there’s so many of us out here that speak both languages and it’s nice to be remembered ya feel me
