Gordon feels betrayed, and maybe he was.
The New Batman Adventures: Over the Edge (1998)
God bless this show for having the balls to do this scene.
I remember in the commentary Bruce Timm was saying that they originally wanted to see Barbara fall and hit the car from the outside, but the network had problems with it. So they did this instead. Bruce Timm ended up liking this version better.
Oh my god, it’s so much better from inside the car. Because that’s the image that Jim would have playing over and over in his head as he went after Bruce and see it through his eyes. It’s so goddamn powerful.
Oh man, this episode. It’s one I remember watching and thinking, “How? HOW!? There’s no way this is real!” And sure, in the end it wasn’t, but it’s still one of the most powerful episodes of B:TAS ever.
And yes, I believe it was Kevin Smith’s podcast Fatman on Batman where Bruce Timm talked about the scene. What exec thought seeing Babs hit the car from Gordon’s POV would be less traumatic, must be an idiot. Maybe it’s less visually graphic, but come on.
