Tonight's Gotham was full steam ahead once again on pretty much every plotline in the show - as it's starting to be revealed that they're all rocketing toward each other.
But more than just Bruce finding out who ordered his parents killed, or Hugo Strange smiling like a creeper, there were some huge, crazy moments throughout the episode. Here are the biggest ones from "Pinewood."
Gotham airs Mondays at 8pm on FOX.
Stabby Babs is Back?
While, yes, the big scene was all play-acting, it was hard not to wonder if Barbara Kean, when she had Jim Gordon tied up and was grinning her way to information, was really showing her true colors. She says she's changed - she says she wants to change, but is any of that real? It's hard to tell right now, but damn if it isn't delightful when she cuts loose.prevnext
Look, it's... Raptor Claw Girl!
Yeah, we don't know where this came from, either, but the first success story for Professor Hugo Strange was revealed, as Karen Jennings showed off her "fixed" hand. It's a raptor claw. She's not a DC comics character, but she certainly makes her presence felt, first slashing Alfred's hand (what is it with this show and hands?!), then again, slashing a random thug's neck.prevnext
Unfortunately, Raptor Claw Girl will not be a recurring character. That's because she got frozen by Mr. Freeze (it's what he does), who then followed that up by shattering her to many, many tiny pieces. Yeah, she's about the deadest dead of any character we've ever seen on this show. If this show has varying degrees of dead, it now goes from Fish Mooney to Raptor Claw Girl.prevnext
Babs and Tabs Part Two?
Where Barbara Kean wound up at the end of this episode was surprising, and honestly a little disappointing. I really thought she wanted to change, but when Jim rejected her, she went to Tabitha Galavan and Butch Gilzean's place, and wound up in the "loving"? arms of Tabby. Stabby and Tabby? Babs and Tabs? Okay, those do have a nice ring to them...prevnext
Yup, Theo Galavan is alive now, and he's strong and he's angry. The resurrected agent of the Order of St. Dumas ended the episode literally yelling Azrael. And that's the title of next week's episode! Convenient!prev
