Some thoughts on the boat scene in TDK

(Spoilers for the five of you who haven’t seen TDK!)

This is admittedly something of a crackfic premise, but wouldn’t it have been awesome and hilarious if one of the two ferries (preferably the one containing the civilians) actually did blow up the other one, and then refused to actually feel bad about it or even remember it? Like, if they somehow repressed/ignored the entire event not only to keep themselves sane and on the moral high ground, but purely to spite the Joker?

For a self-proclaimed bringer of chaos, the Joker seems to put an awful lot of faith in the fact that people won’t entertain delusions and twist facts around to suit themselves…
