Harley Quinn: It’s a Swamp Thing

We see unexpected couples counseling, two different surprise guest stars, and one very obvious one from the title. After all, if you need help with plant matters in the DC Universe, there aren’t a huge number of choices, and when you call the episode “It’s A Swamp Thing…”

Gotham: I Am Bane

  Gotham continues its final season with the emergence of yet another Batman villain at least a decade too early. Which one isn’t exactly a secret, given the title is “I Am Bane.” We get an origin for the character that has nothing to do with his comics one, and a reveal of who one of the lurkers this season actually is. That, actually, makes Bane’s origin jibe fairly closely with one of the movie versions.

Gotham: The Trial of Jim Gordon

 Gotham’s final season continues with “The Trial Of Jim Gordon.” The episode was directed by Erin Richards, who plays Barbara Kean on the show, and written by Ben McKenzie, Gotham’s own Jim Gordon.

Gotham: Ace Chemicals

    The final season of Gotham is paying homage to a lot of important Batman stories. The entire season is loosely based off the major event “No Man’s Land,” which ran for over a year in many titles. “Ace Chemicals” has hints of Joker’s origin, Batman’s origin, and arguably “The Killing Joke” a graphic novel that changed one Bat-family member for years.

Gotham: 13 Stitches

  This, the sadly final season of Gotham, opened with an unlikely alliance of characters all going into battle alongside each other. “13 Stitches” starts to show how and why that would happen (although it doesn’t really explain the title).
