She sent them supposedly to her granddaughter so there was opportunity for Solitary to potentially swap out of even add a letter to the pile. I'm not suggesting that this is indeed what happened here. Everything could very well be on the up and up but all I'm saying is its just as possible that this entire thing is a set up using just enough truth to get Jason to believe that Penguin is responsible for his life back then going to crap.

    To be honest though it's really Willie's fault since he made the choice to hench in the first place. Penguin was only part of the reason.
    And this exactly why Jason going out of his way to shoot Penguin is stupid, making it so Penguin survives the whole thing is just the cherry on the top of an already crappy cake.

    Neither infallible nor always choosing the right course of action. He can messup, and he does. So if he did choose poorly going full against Cobblepot, he did mess up. Even if one can understand from a cold and far place that it was Willis own decision to work as a henchman. But Jason was shocked, hurt and highly emotional, and we know how blinded he can be, in a meticulous and cold way, even. It's in character.

    It's like how Dick often chooses the wrong words to say when he's hurt and emotional, or how Tim can be very bitter when he's hurt.
    I love sleeping, I really do. But I also love to do all kinds of stuff. Which means I don't sleep enough in the end.

    And how many times in real life do people place the blame for things that go wrong in their lives on the wrong person? I've seen that happen several times with the people around me so it doesn't seem strange or out of character for Jason to do so here to me. Also Jason, just like everyone else, is capable of making mistakes otherwise he'd be a Gary Stu who is never wrong and he is emotionally compromised at this point to boot. I don't find any of that to be a flaw in the storytelling. It actually makes it feel more realistic to me.
