In this episode of The Arkham Sessions, we revisit the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. Once again, resentment is exhibited by Dick as he tries to deal with Bruce's perfectionistic and strict mentoring style. Dick may be on to something--Bruce appears to be closed off when it comes to the expression of his emotions. In fact, he may have deficits in the area of emotional intelligence, which is one's ability to perceive, understand, and manage emotions.
