MisterGlass January 21, 2015 Share January 21, 2015 Edward? Ballistics and baked goods aren't the way to Ms. Kringle's heart; start using that big brain and quit being creepy. You can be you and not creepy, right? I think creepy is a hardwired setting for Eddie. I wonder if Ms. Kringle will take his place as the exposition fairy when his sudden but inevitable betrayal occurs. She's a likable character and I would rather that she survive him than be his victim. Speaking of Bullock...he was underused, but I did appreciate that he's become the "observant" one of the pair. He comes across as a doofus, but he's much smarter than he looks. Bullock deliberately plays into the bad cop/dumb guy stereotype, using it to his advantage. I think Gordon is taking the opportunity to play into the tough cop scenario. It comes off as faked, but I thought that was intentional, because it is an act, and he hasn't got it down yet. Regarding Barbara's apartment, I think she thinks that Jim is there with someone else because of the phone call. I think Jim thinks that it's her place and that she was waiting for him to leave. Barbara seems like a nicer person when compared to her parents, but I would still like her to come to the realization that she's not cut out for a full time life with Jim and go back to her gallery. She doesn't have to die, I'm just hoping there isn't some kind of romantic reconciliation in their future. I am okay with the idea that Dr. Tompkins and Jim are openly interested in a relationship at this stage, but I was bothered by the idea that she stopped by the station on impulse. The show doesn't need another impulsive - or temperamental - female character. I would like her to be nice and level headed. Hopefully she will be. I liked that the dialed down the number of characters a bit in the past two episodes. I think they can restrict themselves to a different mix of characters per episode, with Jim at the center. They can leave out Barbara and and Penguin for an episode, and check back in with Bruce and Alfred, and then go back to the mob in the episode after that. It's a good mix of characters, as long as they are not all in the same episode. While Liza was able to take another young woman her size, she was caught unawares by someone she cares for, a man who outweighs her by a hundred pounds, and who has considerably more experience strangling people that she has in escaping. She didn't have a chance. 3 Link to comment
