Milz May 7, 2015 Share May 7, 2015 I think you're right there but really, what reason would either Lee or Jim to have to suspect Barbara of going full out psycho on her? As far as anybody knew, Barbara was the victim in all of this (and to be honest, I'm still not sure if she actually slashed her parents-I think she's internalizing her own guilt for having served them up on a plate to the Ogre) and since Jim had a relationship with her, why not a quick little informal counseling session with a referral to an actual counselor down the road. Of course WE all knew she was going to snap because hey, it's Gotham and that's what people do here. The characters in the storyline....not so much. StupidLee suspected Barbara had some kind of residual trauma when she kept pushing her to get counseling. And I disagree with the recap comment that Jim's eye exercises meant "Go ahead and counsel Babs!". I think it was more "don't do it. Don't do it!" But StupidLee did it anyway (because it's Gotham). StupidLee had worked at Arkham, so she would have been aware that people can be volatile, especially those with some kind of traumatic experience. (Sheesh...I work in a primary care medical office and we've had to call the cops because a patient becomes angry and threatening when doc is going over their cholesterol test and medications!)
