While "LoveCraft" struggles with the balance of campy thrills and deliberate plotting, Alfred and Wayne's characters elevate Gotham to Batman-worthy heights.
At the very best, it was actually really... right? Like, right for the characters these two become eventually. I enjoy the fact that Selina just can't get rid of Bruce, even though there is no conceivable reason why she wouldn't.
The fact that Barbara wasn't in it sure helped a lot, but it was also the interactions between Bruce and Selina. I like the two of them together, and they seem far more genuine than any of the other actors in the series.
Anyway, Gotham is continuing to be more fun than anyone could have hoped - and now, the show is spreading its wings a bit more, giving us two really odd couples in last night's "Lovecraft."
For a midseason finale, "LoveCraft" is remarkably pedestrian.
The writers of Gotham apparently have no idea how to make children sound convincing, and "LoveCraft" had some of the worst dialogue of the series to date.
Despite lacking the big shock, the episode was one of Gotham's stronger efforts, providing another tightly controlled story, which is how this show thrives.
Action Alfred is just one of whole list of reasons why "Lovecraft" is one of Gotham's best episodes yet. Tellingly, it's yet another in which Gordon takes a back seat.
It was fitting that the show dispensed with the crime of the week to, if not exactly tie up the various loose ends of the overarching narrative, then at least line them up for further twisting...
Let's not mince words: Gotham is still a series trying to find itself, and it's not doing a terrific job with that.
All in all, a pretty solid mid-season finale, after an admittedly lackluster previous episode.
