I know that's the whole point. Blake doesn't have the same connection to the bats that Bruce does. For Bruce it all goes back to the tragic night his parents were murdered. Its like his purpose finally consumes and shrouds him in that cave as the bats swarm him. Blake doesn't have that connection. The bats are incidental to his character. Bruce's encounter with the bats is epic because it is laden with meaning. Blake's encounter with the bats is empty and lifeless.
