The Harvey Dent cover up is revealed by Bane at Blackgate prison, and then we see the fall out of a pissed off, jaded, and lied to Gotham City. Brilliant stuff is shown in the montage, but that is it. It stops right there after that scene, and then it's clean streets for the rest of the film.
Completely agreed.

Still that's rather skimmed over too, but not as bad as the first two I mentioned.
Rachel's letter. i don't even remember if Bruce Wayne did believe what Alfred what telling him or not. Really. It's really vague. And it all changes to Alfred suddenly feeling this Batman thing can't go on or he quits.
