Episode 10: Alfred Pennyworth

Not a Hoax! Not a Dream!

Not a hoax, not a dream...in this episode, a character dies! And...gets better. I've heard some people say that Batman wasn't really Batman until there was a Robin. That's how I feel about Alfred Pennyworth. The mythos isn't complete without him.
