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!
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.
Gotham is back and picking up steam!
This week on Gotham there is a killer at Arkham Asylum and we meet a new character, played by the lovely Morena Baccarin.
This week, the repercussions of Harvey Dent’s threats to Lovecraft result in a killer team of assassins, led by a leggy, vicious woman, to find the key witness to the Waynes murders, our beloved Selina Kyle.
This week, we get Harvey Dent aka “Two-Face” entering the scene as a young ADA, while Jim plans a play date for Bruce & Selina at Wayne Manor.
This week a masked man orders fresh recruits to fight to the death for a job at his firm. Alrighty.
Gotham continues to waffle between a gritty cop procedural and an over-the-top origin story. This week, Gordan and Harvey persue a a serial killer who is targeting the children of the rich.
And this time… you get to drive the Batmobile!
