She's the first to fall because she's the first to be attacked. Also, her trauma is fresh and unprocessed. Bruce has had years since childhood to build up a mature understanding of his trauma....yet she is the first to fall.Whereas Bruce, whose parents are irreversibly dead, recovers.
I don't think so--it's one thing to have kept one's name and profession secret for five years, and another to have not yet shared a recent affliction of one's parent. And why would she want to share if she feels she's been kept in the dark?Also, if she is withholding information about her mother then her statement of "So, some of us know each others secrets, and some of us are still in the dark." seems a little hypocritical.
