Changes keep coming on Gotham in “A Dark Knight: The Sinking Ship the Grand Applause.” I don’t always get what they’re doing with the titles on this show, and this one makes no sense at all to me. I didn’t see any sign of a ship, literal or figurative, but it was a decent episode regardless of what they called it.
Gotham’s A Dark Knight season continues with “Reunion.” It’s one of their simpler titles and it works on a few levels.
They continue Gotham’s current season with “A Dark Knight: A Beautiful Darkness.” This one opens with Ivy 3.0 and Selina robbing a rich family by making use of Ivy’s new influence power.
Gotham returns from its long break with “A Dark Knight: Pieces of A Broken Mirror.” They’ve changed the subtitle of the seasons after the break most of the past seasons, but not this time it seems.
Gotham hits the mid-season finale with “Queen Takes Knight.”
The “A Dark Knight” section of Gotham’s current season is, if they follow the usual pattern, almost done. “Things That Go Boom” puts a lot of pieces in motion, and starts nudging things towards the mid-season finale. It starts off, as so many problems in Gotham City do, at Arkham Asylum.
Batman is one of the darker heroes out there, and a lot of his stories over the years have reflected that. Gotham is pre-Batman (and ever more off in its own version of reality, but that’s another issue), but it doesn’t go easy on the darkness. “Let Them Eat Pie” is one of their more disturbing episode so far, and at this point, that says something.
