Castles in the Sand

When the waters rise, will our castles remain?

The Joker didn’t look like a guy with a plan, but he still seemed to always have one. Even when he changed the plan at various points, there was always something in place as a contingency. He even references this himself in his final climactic battle with Batman when he asks if the hero really thought he would risk the battle for Gotham’s soul on a mano-a-mano battle. Instead, he says, you have to have “an ace in the hole.” That’s the sign of a guy with a plan.
