What the man who laughs reveals, though, will be a shock for fans and will likely not make Bruce any happier. The shocking final page is a great callback to Jock and Snyder's previous work on BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR and hints that the horror tarnishing Gotham will not only darken Bruce Wayne's door. After all, desperate times call for desperate measures...and as Jim Gordon makes a desperate and dangerous decision, it's clear that things are only going to get worse in Gotham City.
But as he begins to run out of energy, water, and rations, Ralston resorts to the unthinkable and takes matters into his own hand in order to survive. Unequivocally, the film can best be summed up with one line: Desperate times call for desperate measures.
determination shown by the defenders of the southwest corner of Holland, greatly heartened by the presence of Prince Bernhard, who returned from taking his family to England in order to be with the army.

There were the pupils of an army flying school, who, when the situation seemed desperate, took off, although they had barely mastered the art of flying, in their instruction planes, landing them safely in French airports. There was the young lieutenant who, ordered in the midst of a bombardment to rescue the available cash from the Netherlands Bank at Middelburg, forced the front door "by leaning against it," as he put it, collected a large sum of money from the shivering and protesting Manager, who had taken refuge in the strongroom, and brought it safely to Paris after a narrow escape from the enemy, then hardly two miles away. These episodes, and so many others, recede into the background of that grim scene where the last act of the Dutch tragedy was coming to a close. Before the month of May was at an end, Zeeland, and thereby the whole country, was under German occupation. 2b1af7f3a8
