Things are getting out of control on Gotham these days. Master manipulator Theo Galavan’s goals of becoming Mayor of Gotham and killing young Bruce have taken front seat. All other storylines, sort of, now revolve around this.
This week’s episode of Gotham finally brought the fire, pun intended. After last week’s lackluster episode, my expectations for Gotham were at an all-time low, which is why perhaps, this episode, “By Fire,” really worked for me. It was exciting, evenly-paced and featured some great developments!
Scarification…er, come again? Is that even a real word? Well, this week it is the title of Gotham’s fifth episode of season two.
The Gotham show creators weren’t just joking around when they said that Season 2 was going to hit the ground running! It’s only the second episode of the season and we already have the death of a major character. Plus, lots of villains, insanity, chaos, and cheerleaders getting blown up on a bus!
Gotham got off to a rocky start and still feels like it is trying to find its way, even now. I’m really counting on this season finale to cement the show in greatness (hopefully), so that we can all look forward to the show next year.
Tonight is the penultimate episode of Gotham’s first season! One episode left! Anything can and, hopefully, will happen! I’m predicting a major character death for the season finale. Last week, the Riddler was born, Bruce and Selina did some sleuthing, and Jim was stressing out about this pesky serial killer called the Ogre (Milo Ventimiglia). […]
Jim and Harvey continue their hunt for the Ogre, while Bruce and Selina track down the people who hurt Alfred. And, finally, a classic Batman villan is born!
After last week’s eye-smashing episode, Gotham showed that it could be a show of unpredictability and change. Hopefully it can keep up this momentum.
Last week, Gotham ramped up the action by finally paying off some of the long standing plot lines, but the fallout turns predictably bland.
Gotham is back and picking up steam!
