"The Primal Riddle" treats viewers to Edward Nygma's fully-formed persona of The Riddler in all of his quizzical glory.
It is infinitely hilarious to me that the first two recruits Oswald goes searching for are the two that immediately cancel each other out on a physical level; Mr. Freeze and Firefly.
The search for The Riddler here provides a clear structure that keeps the episode from feeling sluggish or listless.
This week, some of Gotham's strongest alliances are literally tossed out the window while others are being formed.
Gotham can't go wrong any time Riddler gets a big spotlight. And with so many other subplots rolling, we're in for what's shaping up to be an epic final string of episodes.
In the end, "The Primal Riddle" offers no answers, nothing new and no excitement beyond a "Did you see what they did there?" gag straight out of a "Family Guy" episode.
Things are about to get even crazier in Gotham as if it wasn't already crazy enough. The pieces are falling into place on Gotham Season 3 Episode 17 as every side works to take control of the city.
Gotham has wasted no time since its return from The Longest Hiatus Ever in getting back into the crazy swing of things, and so far, everyone who is anyone in Gotham has been invited to the party.
Real talk? Penguin's Army of Freaks seems like one of the better deals in town and it's kind of hard not to root for them.
Gotham is nothing if not fearless in trying anything and everything to keep the show moving forward and building the world one supervillain at a time.
Gotham played it mostly smart this week in "The Primal Riddle" by sticking with Edward Nygma and his newly developed criminal genius status, showing us the ups and downs of having such a particular persona.
