"Light the Wick" makes great strides toward fleshing out the season's central threat, although some viewers may be displeased by the treatment of Lee Thompkins.
Until Steve Harvey becomes the Pope, there is not an actor-to-role combination better than Wong and Strange, except for maybe Wong and the transgender cyber-terrorist he plays on Mr. Robot.
It's really a shame to see the Lee Thompkins character reduced to nothing more than a madwoman in the back half of this season. There used to be layers there, but now there's just exaggerated emotional freakouts.
Two pieces of the puzzle are quickly coming together for the Court of Owls' plan to devastate Gotham, but there's one wild card they seemingly were not expecting: the return of Oswald Cobblepot from his watery grave.
Another solid episode, but it would have been better had some of the subplots had more time to play out.
Even the show's more ardent hanger-ons are likely getting bored of this game.
Surely, it cannot last, but, for now, the boundaries between the protagonists and antagonists of Gotham have never felt more permeable and I love it.
Gotham wisely delegates much of the focus on the aforementioned Court of Owls, which actually gets more screen time here than perhaps it ever has in a single episode.
The return of Barnes and Hugo Strange provided some highlights in a rather harried chapter that rushed us through Jim's time as man trying to thwart the Court from within.
After many tense episodes of separation, Gotham put Penguin and Nygma back together again -- at least physically.
