Critic Consensus: An improvement over the pilot episode, Gotham's "Selina Kyle" gives a handful of its characters some much-needed development, further distinguishing it from other incarnations of the Batman universe.

Critic reviews for Selina Kyle
Gotham is still trying really hard to find what kind of show it wants to be. And honestly, there are moments where I see a spectacular show just under the surface of the show that is actually happening on my TV.
We get to meet Mrs. Cobblepot - Oswald's mom - who has absolutely no point to this week's episode, but she is played by the delightfully weird Carol Kane, so she has to have a bigger role coming up.
It's really going to have to decide if it wants to be a Tim Burton Batman story without Batman or a Christopher Nolan Batman story without Batman.
At any given moment, Gotham is ready to get good at something, but then gets distracted or remembers that it's supposed to be a different kind of show, and we're left with half a really good scene.
Now that we're here, it's time for Gotham to slow down, tighten, and focus. This week was hampered due to the myriad of side-plots at work.
