Good point there. [spoiler] Alfred dying would make an emotional impact and be ironic considering what he told Bruce about protecting him in the previews [/spoiler] Travo_basic
[spoiler] I doubt Alfred will die given that enemies go after people close to Batman as opposed to Bruce Wayne. Unless Bane figures out who Batman really is I don't see that happening.
edit though when you think about it, there aren't many other good characters available to die without it feeling redundant so Alfred might be the best bet.
