Even if that's the case, the ending of TDK was completely left field and I'm almost certain nobody saw that coming. I don't even think people expected Dent's full arc to be in TDK, let alone him dying. I definitely didn't anticipate that. And even though we thought Rachel would die, it still wasn't a given, and when it did happen, it was shocking in it's abrupt nature.

In contrast, while nothing in TDKR I found particularly shocking, on subsequent viewings, I appreciate it more for the execution and thematic elements that tie the trilogy together.
