Gotham is ending the series in a rather random way, with a mult-part story involving the serial killer, something that should have come much sooner in the series I think. It all feels a bit rushed.
There’s also the issue that the Ogre just feels like a 50 Shades rip-off. It’s not necessarily bad, but with a secret room, some S&M hints, it all just feels like a bad cash-in and attempt to connect with that audience. What I do think is interesting is that actor Milo Ventimiglia, who plays the character, actually channels some Bruce Wayne in the depiction, and I could see him taking on the role at some point.
The better part of the episode is the Penguin’s decision to amp up the war with a certain crimeboss. That is much better and more interesting as far as all of the plotlines.
There’s also a nice twist with the Riddler that I didn’t see coming.
The episode was ok to me. Not bad, not good, and a piece of the season finale. There’s some intriguing things of where they might take some characters, but overall, things seem a bit rushed to me. For once, I wish things were spread out across more episodes.
Overall Score: 7.25
