Hi guys — I’m back. Don’t worry I wasn’t held in captivity by Edward Nygma for the past 4 months, just been super busy! I’ve missed reviewing 6 episodes but to recap them quickly I can just use the Gotham Season 2 back-half tagline: “Wrath of the Villains.” Mostly I can say that these last 6 episodes were a blessing because we had no ridiculous Theo Galavan (James Frain).
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.
The Joker is gone, Theo Gavalan’s (James Frain) plans were revealed, and Jim (Ben McKenzie) seemed to be doing OK. This week, the pace slows and falters a bit. I want Gotham to keep up the momentum, but it seems they are losing steam.
It’s the third episode of Gotham’s Second Season and it’s showing no signs of slowing down!
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!
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.
