True.

He also had the Joker threatening to kill people unless he exposed his identity as Batman.

He was directionless, and I'm not sure that he would've gone on any journey around the world without Rachel and Falcone.
That's the point. He was a misguided young man lost in his desire for revenge before that scene.

In The Dark Knight, Bruce thought that Gotham City was approaching a day when it wouldn't need Batman because the police would do their jobs.

i quite liked the fact bruce never saw her again, some characters i feel are just not meant to reoccur.

unlike kyodia-ken, he definitely should have featured more, i thought he was aweome.
I'm not saying she should have reappeared, I just would have liked the events in the film to have been brought up again. Maybe just reference Andrea, without her actually showing up. That's all.
