Harvey & Rachel get kidnapped. Harvey is shown kidnapping Gordon’s family, Harvey is shown kidnapping Joker’s henchman. So clearly when secondary characters are kidnapped it’s important to show their kidnappings. However, apparently, when major characters are kidnapped, it’s not important to show it because the audience is supposed to presume that The Joker is omnipotent, all-powerful, and kidnaps by osmosis. Therefore, the audience must presume he can do anything at any time, at will, with little money, endless henchmen (after constantly killing those who he has working for him), and the ability to control the reality of everyone around him as if playing chess with mentally challenged children.
