In "Alienated" in the end when Nightwing is discussing about the bomb then Batman says "I have the feeling that it may be up to you and your team to find out". Maybe he knows about Kaldur working with Nightwing and he's telling(hinting) him to find the partner.

@imranehsankhan: I figured that he was just referring to Young Justice, as Nightwing is the team leader. Though he is Batman, so I'm sure that he will step in at the end and clear Kaldur by saying that he knew he was a double agent the whole time. Aquaman will be more willing to trust Batman than Nightwing

Except the missing 16 hours apparently....unless he was just withholding it, which he could have been.

Considering it's Nightwing.. it wouldn't surprise me if Batman was monitoring Nightwing and has known the entire time.

Thats my point. He might be hinting him to let other shit go through for now and find the partner.

I think Batman knows but Nightwing doesn't know that Batman knows.

By his team, i think he means just the team since he is the leader of the team.

They said in Depths that only the four of them (Dick, Wally, Kaldur, and Artemis) knew about what was going on, but then again...

I think Nightwing would know that Batman knows... he's just offering some tactical advice...

I doubt it, at the end of Depths he mentions how he only the four of them (AL, NW, KF, and Art) know about Kaldur working undercover and what reason would Nightwing even have by not telling these individuals in on the plan that Batman knows.

What he means is that only the four of them have been given confirmation and are in on it... Batman doesn't "know" but he deduced it, so he may not be certain, or in on the plan... but he still "knows"

Nightwing knows Batman... he's been his partner for a long time, so there's no reason he wouldn't be surprised to find out that Batman "knows" about it... even if it's not been confirmed

Your first line is my point exactly, Nightwing can possibly assume that Batman knows but he does not truly know if Batman knows. We can only assume that NW assumes. Batman is a better mind than NW and it's possible that NW could have done something that would make Batman "know" and not just "assume", that is within our assumptions though. I believe of the fact that despite his years of training with Bruce and with the current situation with the 16 hours and trial one can also assume that Nightwing assumes that Batman is too pre-occupied to know or deduce his covert group. I'm not saying your theory is out of the realm of possibility but knowing that Batman is smarter and more mature than Dick I would never take it out of the realm of possibility that Dick might think he's kept a secret even from Batman.

Wow, I've never even taken Batman's comment this way. Hmmm???? Btw, great to be reading YJ discussions again

If Dick knew the whole time who Artemis's family were, I think he could know Dick's secrets.

I doubt Dick would hide it. Dick would either tell Bruce or assume he knows. And rest assured Bruce knows.

To reference Identity Crisis: "Batman is a detective. He knows what he wants to know." It went something like that, but basically if he was at all curious about some of these events and looked into them just a little bit, he may in fact know.

I'm more curious about if Tim Drake knows. I mean they have not revealed much about him in the show, but in the comics he is a master detective nearly on par with batman. I read this fanfiction about Tim deducing the truth and thought it plausible: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8204602/1/Figured_Out

Thoughts?

I think its definately possible considering he was even able to deduce Batman and Robin's identities in the comics.

I'm hoping Batman doesn't know for once, I like Nightwing running his own agenda.
