The Boy is trying to take Charge!
Gotham introduced several major future plot points tonight. Bruce Wayne wants to meet with the Wayne Enterprises Board. The audience met John and Mary Grayson future parents of Dick Grayson, Robin. The audience might have met the Joker tonight who was pretty good and has divided social media.
Jim Gordon and Dr. Leslie Thompkins are attending Hailey’s Circus. A brawl breaks out and Gordon discovers there has a been murder. Fish Mooney takes over the place where she is imprisoned and makes demands. Penguin’s nightclub is going downhill but when you have your mother singing at the club then that is a given. Bruce Wayne tells the Wayne Enterprises Board to watch out because he knows about their corruption.
This episode had many positives about it. First, Fish Mooney wasn’t a wasted character. She was threatening and interesting. Barbara Kern comes back to see Jim and Leslie making out. Gordon and Thompkins lead this episode. They were partners in crime. The two characters have playful banter and great chemistry together. Honestly, I know Jim Gordon is supposed to marry Barbara Kern but he doesn’t to abide by that in the show. Honestly, the fan base of Gotham has taken to Gordon and Thompkins as a couple.
Bruce Wayne is starting to become interesting side plot. Everybody knows his future is the Caped Crusader. He will be roaming the rooftops fighting crime and corruption. However, Young Bruce has taken to fight corruption in his company. This might be a way to force young Bruce Wayne to leave city for a few seasons. Personality, it feels like Bruce Wayne is ready to leave Gotham and start his training for becoming Batman.
Gotham introduced the character of Jerome. At first Jerome was a soft spoken teenager. However, when he is confronted about his mother murder. He breaks out into a insane laugh and calls life a joke. Cameron also displayed a malicious temper when he was talking about mother. It showed that he could the Joker. It will be interesting to see what they do with the character.
Gotham, the blind fortune teller, gets a 4/5.
