Benjamin McKenzie carries a fast-paced installment that calls into question on how many moral compromises a lawman can make before turning into just another a criminal.
It was a great character episode.
Isabella's demise feels rushed, a predictable and dull way to complicate what was otherwise a loving, productive relationship between Cobblepot and Nygma, while failing to provide any new insight into the characters.
The good of Gotham City have killed and done other unsavory things, yet they're still holding it down for Team Righteous. And in the best cases, our villains are three dimensional enough to inspire a great deal of empathy.
This week's episode, "Executioner," was especially hard for Gordon-but at least there was light at the end of the tunnel for him when it comes to his ex Lee!
The "Gotham" writers satisfyingly put an end to Captain Barnes' increasing insanity, and delved more into Ivy's drastic growth spurt.
Problem is that his journey, though wrapped in some ridiculous yet satisfying comedy business, is likely too little too late for this iteration of the character.
The Executioner proved Gotham is all the better for not going the slow and steady route with hot story lines.
While there's no telling where Barnes will go from here, the show has certainly transformed him into a far more interesting character with its most recent string of episodes.
Gordon having to face off against psycho vigilante Barnes was a fun, satisfying way to invoking Jim's own past as a someone who's murdered in the name of "justice."
The script leaves a lot of the pressure of the execution of this storyline on Ben McKenzie's acting ability, which the veteran leading man pulls off.
Well, that was one crazy hour. While I loved every minute of it, I was also a bit disappointed -- mostly in the Barnes story.
Always proving its distinction as one of TV's most bizarre dramas, Gotham spent tonight's episode, "The Executioner," focused on three stories.
