Critic reviews for Mad City: Time Bomb
Well, surprise surprise, it turns out you can't even get engaged to the son of a notorious crime boss in Gotham City anymore without having to worry about him getting infected with magical carnie blood and turning into a hulking rage-monster.
"Time Bomb" was a particularly bloody episode of Gotham, but it balanced the gore by tying together multiple plotlines in satisfying ways.
Bruce and Selina's discovery regarding the Court of Owls has re-energized what many assumed would be the major thrust of the season but which has taken a backseat ever since Bruce made a truce with the secret organization earlier this season.
Going back to the Lee/Gordon well seems like a misstep, but the developments of Nygma and Barbara's crew definitely made this a good step in what's been a great Riddler arc.
As suspected, Mario isn't as innocent as he appears, and on Gotham Season 3 Episode 10 we learned exactly what his little secret might be. It doesn't spell good news for Jim or Lee.
