"Ghosts" serves more to whet viewers' appetites rather than push Gotham in bold new narrative strands, but solidly entertains with the welcome appearance of Victor Zsasz.
Really, the only way to understand my disappointment [in "the birthday boy" and Ray Salinger] is by comparing the two characters side-by-side.
Victor Zsasz is such a welcome presence on this show. Anthony Carrigan's performance is a near-perfect balance of menacing and charming.
Fortunately, Carmine's best assassin is also his most good-natured. Jim finds Victor Zsasz helping himself to some milk in Jim's apartment. He came to warn Jim that he expects to get the kill order from Carmine soon.
"Ghosts" kicked off the downfall of Penguin's empire and the potential return of Gotham's Joker stand-in. That's a promising way to launch the second half of the season, but getting there was rougher than usual.
Lee, even with all she'd recently been through, behaved in an extremely uncharacteristic manner throughout the bulk of this one, almost flipping switches as fast as Barbara did back in the second half of Season 1.
The quality of these stories varies about as wildly as we've come to expect from the show, but for once the drama finds its balance where it matters.
One of the storylines that worked best in "Ghosts" came not in the main plot points, but in the slow teasing of the cult of the Joker.
This week's episode was packed with action, emotion and exciting developments that promise good things to come in this short winter run.
Minor plot holes and repetitive themes aside, "Mad City: Ghosts" was an entertaining start to the second half of Gotham Season 3.
For its first episode of the 2017, Gotham certainly didn't disappoint. This week's spring premiere - titled "Ghosts" (more on the significance of that later) - holds tightly to the narrative development promised by the show's previous episode.
I know Gotham can do better. It has done better.
Well, that was all over the place. Jerome did make a return on Gotham Season 3 Episode 12, but it wasn't quite what I expected.
