But...as for things I would want to believe what happened in the series?
1.) Joker went into a coma-like state sometime during those eight years after finding out Batman went into exile and then wakes up soon after Blake becomes the new Batman.
2.) Blake's first mission as a FULLY-TRAINED Batman is capturing Scarecrow and he succeeds.
3.) Gordon retires and finally makes peace with his wife while Ellen Yindel becomes the new police commissioner.
Batman spent 7 years traveling the world and training and lost to scarecrow his first bout with him. There is no way Blake would defeat Scarecrow on his first night out
