In The Dark Knight Rises, Selina Kyle enters the home of John Daggett to confront his henchman for a copy of software she had been promised that would erase her name and criminal record from every database in the world. They deny that the code exists and fight her off. She faces a growing crowd of armed opponents when Batman arrives to help.

How did Batman know she was there? He had placed a tracking device on a necklace she stole near the beginning of the movie, but he had already retrieved the necklace before this scene. Was it coincidence that he arrived at that moment, and if so, why was he visiting Daggett's house himself?

Coincidence my friend is underrated. –  KeyBrd Basher Jan 17 '13 at 13:16
Do you have any questions regarding the existing answers or did you solve this problem yourself already? –  Napoleon Wilson Jul 15 '13 at 7:29

I don't remember it that well myself, but I think this was shortly after the stock exchange robbery. So he was still tracking Bane's men (though I'm not sure by which means), who just arrived at Dagget's, too. Or maybe he even knew they worked for Dagget.

EDIT: After watching it again, there was a scene earlier, when Bruce (or rather Alfred) does some investigations about Bane, he learns that he worked for Dagget previously and that Dagget most probably braught him to Gotham and he is doing some work for him. So when he lost track of Bane and his men after the stock exchange robbery, Dagget was the first point to look for them and get some answers. So he didn't actually come to rescue Selina, but to pursue Bane and Dagget.

I think he was chasing Selina Kyle all the time to know what she had done with his fingerprints and did not know about what was Dagget upto. The only theory I can think, is the car which she stole from Bruce. Maybe it had a tracking device (which should be) which helped him to find her. I can't think of any other option.

Dagget's motivation was not clear to him and she said to him "..But Dagget seemed pretty interested in that mess at the Stock Market"

He knew that Bane had previously worked for Dagget. He also lost track of Bane, so Bane could have been there. My second thought is he that knew that Selina Kyle was there because of the reason that she put Batman in a cage, which was that Bane had promised to erase her criminal record. He might also have put a tracking device on Selina Kyle's car.

He wasn't there for Selina. Come on, we are talking about Bruce Wayne here. Do you really think he would go after her just after the stock exchange got held up by Bane? He researched Bane, knew that Daggett was obviously linked to him and then went after Daggett. The twist was that Bane was there too and you can see that Bruce makes a quick exit as soon as he sees him. One more star for Christopher Nolan for making a Batman who knows his limits.

In which way is this answer different from the already exisiting two months old answers? –  Napoleon Wilson Mar 23 '13 at 23:26
Alright. I'm new here. Didn't see that you had answered it. Just jumped the gun as soon as I saw something dark-knight related. Cheerio. –  SPRajagopal Apr 3 '13 at 7:50
