Here we are, born to see the finale of the third season of Gotham, we’re the princes of the universe. Sorry, I’ve been watching a lot of Highlander lately. But it is the finale of Gotham. Penguin is hanging with Fish again, Bruce ignited a bomb to give everyone angry brain, and Jim injected himself with the Tetch virus. I guess we need an hour and a half to wrap this narrative nightmare up.
Now that Lee is infected with the Tetch virus and Bruce is ~Hypno Bruce~ there’s no hope for Gotham unless four other storylines can cross with the two I’ve mentioned and cancel each other out. But can Gordon, Penguin, Barbara, and Selina each have captivating storylines of their own that are worth jamming into 42 minutes? You’ll see.
As the season finale of Gotham grows closer there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered. How will the Court de Owls cleanse the city? Is Bruce taking a chartered flight back to Gotham, or is more of a stowaway situation? Does Penguin’s gang have a hierarchy? And where does Mr. Freeze store all of his stuff? Keep reading to find out if “All Will Be Judged” answers any of those questions.
Does anyone else find it impossible to remember what’s happening on Gotham? I know it’s my job to remember the intricate and batshit crazy plot lines of this dumb – and suddenly fun – show, but it’s like they consistently brainwash me with information. I guess we’re going to find out what’s going to happen with Penguin’s B-Team, Owl City, and Captain The Shield? Let’s find out, dear readers.
There are basically two kinds of episodes of Gotham: episodes where everything is happening to everyone and it’s impossible to keep the storyline straight, and episodes with a standard A and B Plot that make you realize how fun the show is when you’re not trying to keep up with the breakneck pace of the show. This episode is the latter, and it finally answers some questions about how long we’ll have to deal with Fake Bruce (too long, but not for that long).
Well class, unfortunately news of a possible WGA strike didn’t put a stop to this week’s episode of Gotham. Don’t cry, you get to see what the Owl People are up to. Or that is to say that you get to see them do things and wonder what their deal is.
This week on Gotham, Jerome is up to his one trick again and chasing after Bruce Wayne while Nygma and the snooze squad try to kill the Penguin. Can you guess which storyline is really fun and which one feels like it was shoehorned into the episode?
Gotham doubles down on the weirdness and ends up with a very weird and fun episode that combines everything that makes the show great: a complete disregard for realistic storytelling, explosions, and a guy cutting off another guy’s face and wearing it.
Can you believe that it’s already time for the second half of Gotham’s Season 3? I certainly can’t. Honestly, I was hoping that Fox would cancel the show to spare audiences the brain space that’s taken up by trying to remember the increasingly soap opera-esque plots.
