This was instrumental to Bruce being able to move on with Selina (and have sex with Miranda). He was no longer in the frame of mind that his one chance at happiness had died 8 years ago.
You're right. That was the bit of the dialogue I thought was inconclusive.

I still missed a most visceral reaction from Bruce. He had made important decision partially based on a lie from whom he thought was a man he could totally trust.

He also said to Miranda that Alfred had left "Taking everything".
You're probably right. I need to see this again.

That was a major problem for me with TDKR. No personality for Gotham. These things affected their city. They were living under a lie for 8 years. The villain was starting a revolution among their people. Batman came back after 8 years. Do we see any real reactions or feelings about this from the people? No.
100% agreed on both counts.
