Hope(light) and despair(shadow).
Other themes are really just standalone ones such as pain, desolation, and I feel control was a theme as well as it was even mentioned with Bruce asking Talia to take control of Wayne Enterprises as well as Bane telling Gothamites to take control of their city.
Any other themes for TDKR that I have missed?
And just for looking back, TDK has chaos vs order and BB had really just fear as its theme.
I think the overall theme of the trilogy is the will to act.
