Re: Which female character shared a deeper connection w/ Bruce?
He knew Rachel the longest, but after they became adults, there was no even ground between them. She could never understand how broken he was, which is part of the reason why she chose Harvey.
As was said on the production notes by either Emma Thomas or Jonah Nolan (can't remember which it was), Selina is the yin to Bruce's yang. How often does a guy who dresses up in black and sneak out at night meet someone else who dresses up in black and sneaks out at night. The "so that's what that feels like" scene sums it up nicely.
