Given that the Joker doesn't have a clock in his cell, how did he time the explosion so precisely such that Batman will only have time to save one? If he told Batman 1 min later, Gordon would have saved Rachel too.

    Trying to remember, but is there any indication that they are actually timed? More likely there was someone watching each and told to detonate at a specific moment. – DeeV Dec 7 '18 at 14:57
  • There's a timer attached to the bomb, but there's a phone as well, so it is hard to know if the bomb was indeed activated by the time running out or by the Joker himself calling the attached phone. – Baku Dec 7 '18 at 19:19
  • If there's one thing Joker (Jerome) understands, it's insurance for a plot. It's likely he had someone standing by to manually detonate the bombs, or a way to do it himself. Remember that Jerome (Like Bruce, as a counterpart) is also extremely smart and resourceful. If he wanted those explosions to time out right, he'd have figured out how. Yes this is partly speculation, hence why it's a comment and not an answer, to whomever is getting ready to flag it. – MissouriSpartan Dec 7 '18 at 20:49
  • @MissouriSpartan where did the name Jerome came from? – Vishwa Dec 11 '18 at 4:04
  • @Vishwa Jack Napier is his name. I got him mixed up with Jerome Valeskia in Gotham. – MissouriSpartan Dec 11 '18 at 4:10
