    I'm glad Selina finally has some purpose in the story. Though that significance got sidelined again. They really need to have her identify the Wayne killer already.

    Yeah, I'm thinking however many episodes he's there, he's there for a reason, perhaps to encounter someone or something important to the mythos.

    I got goosebumps watching Bruce take that leap from one building to another. It was a nice little nod to the comics, specifically the ones in which Batman chases Catwoman -- time and again -- across the rooftops of Gotham City. Even without his legendary skills, young Bruce is, by no means, ordinary. "The training is nothing! The will is everything. The will to act."

    Badass Alfred was fun.

    Awesome that they played some Gang Of Four on Gotham.

    Ivy scene was weird. I'm not sure if it was good weird or bad weird.

    I think they really could have made this a two part episode with Bruce having to spend a longer amount of time on Selina's side of town.

    I would say the odds are pretty good that this will not be Bruce last outing into Gothams underbelly with Selina.

    I would find it funny if Alfred made a joke about "feeding a stray cat" when he catches Selina at the mansion visiting Bruce

    Same here, it was a great scene.

    Overall, another solid episode. Really glad Gotham has hit it's stride and become a show I feel like watching every week. The wait for the next episode is gonna suck though. Gordon at Arkham is an interesting development; look forward to it.

    Enjoyed this Episode. Alfred was easily the best part. My only nitpick remains Ivy. At least Copperhead wasn't in your face obvious like every other DC character.

    I thought the assassin was Red Claw, but Copperhead...eh.

    By far the best episode we've had. Loved the rooftop chase. The winks and nods seem to work better when it's not delivered through dialogue. This show needs to keep focusing on it's strengths. Bruce and Selina are far more interesting to watch than villains of the week.

    Interesting to see Gordon go to Arkham. Will be a nice change of pace for him. And who will they introduce as Bullocks new partner?

    Liked the episode a lot. Alfred was great. I really love how they make him a bad ass. It's interesting how some of Bruce's training comes from Catwoman.

    Ivy was a little bit of a weirdo and I don't mean that in an interesting way.

    You know, there are people who have loved ones with Downs syndrome and similar conditions would find using that term extremely offensive.

    This episode knocked it out of the park. Really loved the Bruce / Selina scenes. And Dent is a really intriguing character... I'm beginning to think he doesn't care so much about finding the Wayne killer as he does about using the Wayne murders as a means of bringing down various persons against whom he bears a vendetta. Dent seems like a "the ends justify the means" kinda guy, a lot like in the Long Halloween.

    The scenes with Fish, Falcone, and Penguin were better executed than usual this episode as well, I thought. Good to see that while Penguin is rising to the top he's still not "safe," and Falcone doesn't trust him.

    Alfred was super badass this episode too.

    I thought it was another good episode. I'm glad the quality has remained high since Penguin's umbrella.

    This was my second favorite of the series so far. They ended the fall on a high note.

    Gordon being transferred to Arkham should open up some good arcs. Get to see the madhouse taking shape. It seems that where he runs into Leslie.

    The Bruce/Selina dynamic was good all around, sans for that brief run-in with Ivy. Let's not have that again.

    What didn't you like about the Ivy run-in?

    Not sure if Mister J was talking about Ivy specifically or how Bruce/Selina handled it. On the Ivy thing, I'm not exactly sure Ivy should have borderline personality disorder as a child...I didn't find much annoying, but I can see how having her be unhinged since childhood is a little odd. She's supposed to be a qualified botanist isn't she, not sure her personality in the show is conducive to obtaining tertiary education.

    It was dreadfully awkward and her dialogue felt forced. I should specify it was more the interaction than the run-in itself. I'm not particularly bothered by the 'small world' nature the show hits on, but I was counting seconds until that exchange was over.

    I saw the preview clip of it last week and was of the same mind. I figured it'd play better during the show or have some sort of relation as things progressed. Nope.
