Sean Pertwee (Alfred Pennyworth) answered some fan questions on the Yahoo!TV Facebook page earlier today. Here are his answers related to the character of Bruce Wayne and his relationship with Alfred:
Will we be seeing more conflict between Bruce and Alfred? Will he be training Bruce?
Yes, he’ll be training Bruce and they will continue to butt heads, but as you witnessed last night, they have a contract in place.
Do you think Alfred sees Bruce as the son he never had? How would you describe the relationship between Jim and Bruce?
Alfred never expected to be a father. The whole idea is a strange thing to him. As their relationship develops, his love for Bruce develops – not just as a protector, but as a father figure as well.
What kind of trouble are Alfred and Bruce going to get into outside the Manor this season?
Bruce’s investigations into Wayne Enterprises leads him into different dangers in many episodes. But he always has Alfred to fall back on.
