Leaving our well documented disagreement on this issue aside
It still followed up on a lot of things from Begins. Bringing things like the Batcave and Wayne Manor back. Mentioning Bruce's parents, hell even Fredericks came back. Paying off the "why do we fall" theme. Paying off Gordon being Bruce's hero. Return of the rich/poor themes. Etc. etc.
