Free at last! Gotham’s first season is finally, mercifully over. Praise Thor Almighty!!!
(In case that’s not clear enough… I’m saying I didn’t like it.)
Try to count how many times anyone could have killed Don Falcone if they’d just stop monologuing!
But they can’t, you see… they WON’T.
And how funny was Jim’s shoot out in the hallway of the hospital? He sprayed the area with bullets and hit no one and instantly ran out of bullets, but his trusty handgun just wouldn’t quit – for some reason, then he was able to hit someone, but not before.
Remember when Fish got shot breaking out of the Doll Maker’s island? Neither do the writers. And Penguin seemed to have forgotten he was shot immediately after it happened.
Yeah, Barbara is crazy – not exactly a news flash, but apparently she killed her parents, not the Ogre. Kinda hard to accept that she ends up with Jim at this point, huh? Unless they say she’s been brainwashed or some BS, but still, it’s kinda hard to walk back a homicide of two defenseless elderly folks who are your parents.
And since she told Leslie, now she has to kill her… so why’d she tell her? And why is she going to kill her in her own apartment? That seems like a tough one to wiggle out of… oh, and Barbara went crazy because her parents took her posters away? Esh.
And what the hell happened during those two stupid weeks that made Selina, a child, a lieutenant of Fish’s? The kid was walking around with a shotgun, for Thor’s sake!
Blah, blah, blah, Ed’s the Riddler, he’s crazy, we know, we know…
I can’t sit here and recount the continuity errors, plot thread drops and intense dopiness that is this episode. I can’t. (This is as good a list as any.) It’d take too long and if you’re reading this, you saw the episode, so you know. You can never unsee that season finale.
This is where we part ways, Gotham. It’s going to take the most amazing season 2 trailer EVER to bring me back, and I just don’t see that happening. The writers have been laughing at me for too long… it’s time to bounce.
