In 2008, soundtrack editor, Daniel Schweiger stated the following:
"In a story arch that would presage the Dark Knight's, Bruce Wayne's friendship with Harvey Dent is put to the most severe test with an accident that horribly wraps his friend's sense of justice. It was that kind of sympathetic approach to super-villainy that typified Batman's best episodes. And Shirley Walker responded to this two-parter's tragedy with one of her best scores and character motifs. A soprano recorder and doom-laden bells reflect Dent's split personality- one filled with sad humanity, and the other with disturbed percussion and menacing brass."
Executive Producer, Bruce Timm, stated the following:
"Shirley totally dovetailed into the way the script played Harvey. He's got deep psychological problems that pre-date the beginning of the series, theoretically to his childhood. So he's got that sing-song child-like music that almost says "Har-vee... Har-vee..." It's very disturbing."
