Default Re: Am I the only one that feels like TDKR prevents Nolan's trilogy from being perfec

A line like "the last confirmed sighting" remains ambiguous to me in nature.
Doesn't Daggett say, "8 years, and he has to pick tonight?" That says to me that he really was gone for 8 years, or at the very least, hasn't done a big job like the stock exchange for that long.
