A part of me wants Alfred to die. I love the character, but just that would give it a huge emotional load for me personally.
Alfred has quit more than once in the comics canon the first being, coincidentally, during the whole KNIGHFALL saga when he expresses frustration at Bruce, now in a wheelchair, still putting his life at risk.
