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.
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!
Gotham is back after a lengthy hiatus. “Beasts of Prey” wasn’t the best of episodes, but it did advance many plot points that needed to be advanced, specifically Fish Mooney’s island adventures.
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.
This week, Gotham really ups the ante with some shocking developments near the end of the episode.
This week we see several characters that are familiar to the Batman-verse. But, besides all the character introductions/tie-ins/appearances, the story this week was a fun and engaging one.
Gotham certainly is NOT slowing down with their introduction and fleshing out of the many Batman world villains.
Despite it’s plot holes and odd character deviations, I enjoyed this episode, though I sometimes found myself asking my cat “Why?”
Last week, Gotham ramped up the action by finally paying off some of the long standing plot lines, but the fallout turns predictably bland.
