Another explosive episode as Penguin goes to save his mother and we finally learn whether or not Theo has managed to become Mayor.
Not only is Galavan working on bringing down Bruce Wayne, becoming mayor of Gotham and framing Penguin for every evil thing he does we also have him unintentionally making other villains as well.
Episode 6 continues the sad story of Gotham’s Firefly.
After the events of the outbreak of Arkham inmates which led to Jerome’s final stand and Galavan’s heroics the GCPD decided to strike back with their own Strike Force.
Galavan continues to take over Gotham and now he’s got the worst possible person in his back pocket.
With the events of the opening trio of episodes out of the way, Jerome is gone and Theo Galavan’s plan to take over Gotham as the “hero” that everyone wants it is all change for the GCPD.
I didn’t think too much of the season opener but looking back I’m not sure I’ve ever been that keen on many of their “big” episodes finding that the first season worked more as a whole then on a individual episode level.
Seeing this is part one of a story of three episodes I will actually hold my breath and hope for the best.
I talked last week about how I quite like the Ogre and wouldn’t mind him being a much longer lasting villain then we’ve had so far. He’s lasting a few episodes but with each second of the episode Jim is getting closer and closer.
This weeks episode is off to the circus, and with it even more nudges towards the future of Gotham.
Gotham the city not the program. At this rate the show won’t have any more villains to introduce. Maybe then we’ll look forward to their own.
Another big name is being dragged out this week and that name is Crane. With Gotham’s ever growing villain gallery I’m hoping for something special this week.
We’re back from the holidays (edit : not that it mattered what with my late posting) and we get to catch up with Jim Gordon at his brand new job.
EDIT: This blog has been in the draft folders since the episode aired here in the US, until today when I came to write about the new episode I was totally unaware I hadn’t published it. I apologize. It happens a lot with me.
In the thrilling mid-season finale we see Jim Gordon once more go up against the wrong people as he tries to take down Lovecraft.
