    another of Bruce's old sparring partners (Bane) returns as a sickly, prickly old fart whose male nurse steals the venom formula and uses it with the the slapper patches. i never got the plot of this episode or if i did i musta forgotten it but it did have somewhat of a anti-drug message and it feature Bane's return although he was a invalid. so the episode still won some points for that; also to me ne way it's the 1st time anyone ever notices Terry's absentes or behavior and comments on it or tries to explain it away. once again the plot falls short but like i said earlier the Bane connection saves this episode from completely suckingmoreless
