DigitalCount November 4, 2014 Share November 4, 2014 A few thoughts on my end: Pre-signed warrants are a pretty scary and unconstitutional thing. I don't know if the show wants to think us that in what he thinks are his last moments he is willing to take a trip to the dark side, or if it is just supposed to be handwaved that GCPD literally has a stack of blank checks to arrest whoever they want as something that's necessary for plot purposes. Judge Bam-Bam probably should watch his back, because even temporarily inconveniencing the Mayor and Falcone can't be good for his health. This, absolutely. I was like, "wow, freaking Gotham." I burst out laughing when this happened, but I know it's just another level of complete corruption in this city. The fact that they have a freaking stack of them is the most messed up thing. This isn't a one-time-use golden ticket, it's just business as usual. I guess they use those for the people that no one would dare sign off on arresting. Loved the Mayor peacing out as soon as Falcone mentioned killing. I actually have a different take on Barbara coming back for Jim than what I've seen thus far. She knew he was going to die (and really, he absolutely would have if Ozzie hadn't had Falcone's ear). She probably cares about changing the world in an abstract sense, but she cares more deeply for her beloved. Yes, she was leverage, but maybe that was part of her calculation here (if Jim has to back down, then maybe they can both survive). It would have been super heartless and ignorant for her (who is unaware that Gordon is the lead on an action crime thriller) to just take off and let him die alone, not to mention that the posts here would have been talking about agency rather than brains had she just dutifully followed Jim's instructions. Jim may have been willing to sacrifice himself, but she was not willing to sacrifice him, and his choice to do so would have hurt her too. Nothing needs to be said about the Penguin, his performance and writing speak for themselves. Didn't mind Fish, but then again I mostly enjoy her (and envy Nico/Will Smith). Falcone's a lot smarter than the upstarts seem to realize. LOVED the scene where Jim is introducing Montoya and Allen to Bruce and Alfred. I hope Allen's not dirty, but we've seen more behind the curtain for Montoya and we know she's a good woman (if a bit misguided sometimes). Here's hoping he's just a simple guy who wants to catch the crooks. Essen and Bullock are both relatable, even though they're technically dirty, and I like that. That facial expression Jim had when he realized he'd need to buy a new bed tho. Favorite thus far. 5 Link to comment
