Curiosity may kill the cat, but it inspires the Bat when young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz, far left) and his mercurial manservant, Alfred (Sean Pertwee), hit the family-skeleton jackpot while exploring the secret lair beneath the mansion. “It changes everything in Bruce’s life,” Mazouz reveals of the space the pair uncovered in last May’s finale. “It changes how he sees Alfred, the criminal side of Gotham, even how he sees his parents.” The hidden enclave will likely also surprise viewers expecting to see all sorts of gadgets and high-tech toys. “It’s definitely not the Batcave,” Mazouz cautions. “What is down there are clues to Thomas Wayne’s secret life and what he was trying to do before being killed.”
