Gotham wraps up its second season… sort of. The second season ends in an interesting way, and one that feels very much like a comic book.
While some things are taken care of so much is left open for the third season. It really feels like the ending of a comic book story arc where there’s more to go. No happy little bow on this story.
What’s impressive is that the episode manages to go through so much in so little time. There’s Strange, ClayGordon, Penguin, Fox and Bruce, Riddler, and Fish Mooney. Everything gets its moment and given ample enough time to go through their arc.
There’s definitely bad. Strange’s finale is a bit of a let down with something (No SPOILERS here!) happening that feels like he should be more hurt or even killed. And the follow up to that is… odd.
There’s a great comedic moment involving Gordon and Fox that will have you laughing and rolling your eyes at the same time.
The season wraps up in one way, but also takes us into the third for what looks to be an interesting further evolution of the show. There’s definitely a better vision for the show, and a consistent style now that feels like a blend of a lot of what’s come before with Batman.
We have some time to wait until the third season, but there’s a lot to look forward to as the show builds its own version of the Batman mythos.
