Critic Reviews for Heroes Rise: Destiny Calling

The first part of the season finale boasts a pretty great cold open... It's wonderfully ridiculous.

It's fair to say that Gotham has moved at warp speed... Tonight, though, that breakneck pace feels almost like a bit of mercy because who wants to spend too much time with Gotham in shambles like this?

"Destiny Calling" wasn't as consistent as some of the home stretch episodes, but it had some major moments that kept it entertaining.

Other aspects of the story deliver some dramatic moments on paper, but in classic Gotham fashion, nothing truly surprises and mostly the action feels like a retread of previous plot points.

Logue is among the most underrated talents on the show, trapped in the often-thankless role of sidekick/comic relief to the more overtly heroic Gordon, but the actor was absolutely critical to making Gordon's story as satisfying as it ended up being.

We got ourselves an official Iceberg Lounge! All thanks to a really fun twist that involved Penguin out-smarting Riddler by taking advantage of Riddler's trademark Type-A/OCD weakness.

Gotham has always been better at writing its villains than its heroes, which is why, perhaps, when it turns its heroes into villains for its Season 3 finale, it gives us its best season ender yet.
