Week 10 of Gotham – otherwise known as...
HOW LONG DO WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR NEW EPISODES???
We find young Master Bruce looking at Selina Kyle with stars in his eyes, but he realizes she’s not exactly looking for romance. They are discussing this in an argumentative, adolescent fashion when they are interrupted by the arrival of a team of assassins looking for Cat. Cue lots of running and fighting, and Alfred kicking ass and taking names.
Gordon is horrified to learn that Cat’s name was leaked, and Bullock is furious that he didn’t know about this to begin with. Gordon is off to confront the future Two-Face while Bullock and Arthur pay a visit to Fish Mooney. By the end of the episode, Lovecraft (Dent’s primary suspect in the murder of the Waynes) is dead, and Gordon is banished.
But before we get there, we follow Bruce and Cat through the juvenile underworld of Gotham. Poison Ivy makes an appearance, and it’s impressive that even Cat thinks she’s a little unhinged - but then, who wouldn’t be after their abusive father died at the hands of the police and their sad-sack mother slit her wrists because she couldn’t deal with reality.
The Mayor is furious that Lovecraft has died, and claims to believe Gordon’s claim that he didn’t kill him - but takes this opportunity to punish Gordon anyhow. At the end of the episode, we see him standing at the gates of the infamous Arkham Asylum, where he is doomed to be a guard.
And now we all sit back to wait until January, which promises to bring an inside look at life with the criminally insane - and is that Harley Quinn I spy in the teaser?
New cast members for season 3 announced (but not who they are going to play)
Give a warm welcome to Ksenia Solo (squee!), James Frain, and Justin Chatwin (swoon)!
Chris Pratt. Dinosaurs. What more do you need?
Reports have new the DC comics comics series Constantine - which is excellent, by the way and just hitting its stride - stopping production at 13 episodes this season.
They have not, however, ruled out the chance for a second season.
Damn it NBC - if this show was on the CW or Fox, it would have been renewed by now. Stop jerking us around. It is the perfect partner for Grimm. You know it and we know it. We may not watch it at 10pm on Friday night, but we ARE WATCHING.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Oscar Isaac has been cast in X-Men: Apocalypse as the mutant god himself. Other recent credits include Drive, Inside Llewyn Davis, Robin Hood, and Sucker Punch.
What do you think?
Rumor has it that an 88 second teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will be premiering online and in some theaters (including Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX in Atlanta, GA) this Friday!!
We'll post it for you as soon as we see it - promise!
Welcome to Week 9 of Gotham, in which we delve further into the madness that is Gotham City and see two more epic characters come to life: Harvey Dent, who will one day become Two-Face but is already displaying his signature dual nature, and Arkham Asylum, which the Mayor decides will be the perfect place to house the criminally insane after Gordon criticizes him for not having sufficient treatment for prisoners with mental illness.
But first, we learn that Barbara has indeed left Jim (though we don’t discover til the end of the episode where she went) but we still don’t know if she plans to return. In the wake of this loss, Gordon keeps his head long enough to find a suitable, if somewhat unusual, safehouse for Selina Kyle - she’s going to be staying at Wayne Manor, much to young Bruce’s adolescent delight and Alfred’s initial disdain. Watching these two young actors playoff each other is a delight.
Meanwhile, Gordon and the good cops meet with Harvey Dent, a prosecutor with the DA’s office who is supposedly clean and will help them flush out the Waynes’ killer. While Dent tries to use his mystery witness to threaten an underworld figure he has long held a grudge against, Penguin discovers Fish Mooney’s secret weapon and tells her she has no choice but to become his double agent if she values her life.
Fish, we discover, is behind the jailbreak that freed a notorious bomber - and she uses him to strike at Falcone and get rid of a group of Russians. Alas, the bomber is a most interesting character - something of an idiot savant, like Rain Man but with bombs instead of math - but he begins and ends the episode in police custody. Here’s hoping he enjoys his stay in the newly occupied Arkham!
Next week will bring the fall finale - what secrets will be revealed in the tenth episode of Gotham? And what glorious cliffhangers will leave us salivating 'til spring? I can hardly wait to find out!
