Could John Doe have known Thomas Wayne?
SPOILERS FOR SEASON 1 EPISODE 4:
I've once again watched John's amazing introduction to the story and while I was wondering how he could know so much something hit me when he said "I see a lot of your father in you" That makes me think that he knew Thomas and what he was like. It could even explain John's fascination with Bruce and how he knows so much about Vicki. He knows Vicki's true identity and that Thomas murdered her parents. That is surely a well guarded secret so could John have been there when it happened? Another thing that hit me is John being in Arkham. Nobody knows his name and according to the puppet there isn't even any records of him. Maybe Thomas did what he did to so many others and had John committed to Arkham without him actually being sick to keep him quiet and then John went insane over time. Then erased any all records of him.
What do you guys think? Is this a completely crazy idea or could I be on to something?
