Critic Reviews for Heroes Rise: These Delicate and Dark Obsessions

The lesson, in the end, which is important to keep in mind while Gotham keeps Bruce trapped in a faraway cell, is that the bats always came back, baby.

Gotham has always struggled to make Gordon's storylines compelling, and this nonsense with Uncle Frank is just the latest example. It's a mess of convoluted storytelling...

Last week, we were officially introduced to the Riddler, a.k.a. the new Ed Nygma, endless font of wacky wordplay. But this week, Gotham's newest supervillain is completely MIA while the rest of the puzzle pieces come into play.

It's not enough to know that all of these storylines might end up someplace pretty cool. In this filler of an episode, they're just kind of predictable, with the audience one step ahead of the game every step of the way.

It's starting to look like Gotham's recent hot streak isn't a fad, but the new status quo.

While Jim's and Bruce's journeys were interesting, the best part of the hour was Penguin and Ivy. They make a great team.

They stole away what makes Batman into Batman.

Penguin's silly sideshow with Ivy was the highlight here as Gotham gears up for Ra's al Ghul and the latest attempt to ruin and reset the city under the pretense that it will somehow ease, maybe erase, all the crime and corruption. Which it never does.

Revenge makes for some strange bedfellows, and of course, on Gotham, strange is the status quo.

While "These Delicate and Dark Obsessions" very much feels like a transitional episode building into the tail end of the season, it does move some significant pieces into position for that final arc.
