Sweet. Did you not like it?
Everyone of Nolan's films is about a broken man trying to fix himself. That is why he is so good at Batman. The addition/use of Catwoman is probably going to be along the lines of how she is used in Hush. Batman/Bruce Wayne will finally be able to become one person. This will happen when he is willing to ultimately share his secret identity with her.
He is also going to need an ally to take on Bane. Bane will be super strong, but more importantly, he will be super intelligent. Bane will figure out Batman and Bruce Wayne are one in the same. This is what will make the Catwoman/Selina Kyle - Bruce Wayne/Batman relationship so important. SK will understand what is at stake for Bruce Wayne/BM. That is my rather simple guess as to what is going to happen in this film.
There is also the typical notion in films/literature, that a man is incomplete until he is able to love a woman (or man in brokeback mountain).
So in the end, this is the last film in the trilogy, BM may be "killed" off, but BW will get the girl in the end... or in typical Nolan fashion, he won't get what he needs to make him whole.
