I'm saying that I think Batman's reaction shot could have been a "gotcha" flashback. It's done in a mysterious, open to interpretation way...that's one possible interpretation. Regardless of when it took place in relation to the bomb's timer, it's our last moment of Bruce in a Bat cowl in the trilogy and it's a reflective one. So it makes emotional sense to show it.

Maybe. I've questioned those choices in the past, but I would imagine Nolan and Lee Smith made a conscious decision there and weren't just chopping stuff up willy nilly. As a professional editor myself, I tend to let editors off the hook more because very often a producer/director has a particular reason for wanting things cut a certain way. And I can only imagine how particular Nolan is considering he shoots very economically and isn't a coverage hound, and usually has a very specific intent with each scene.

Also, completely random, but Lee Smith got robbed of an Oscar nomination for Inception.
