    You know, in hindsight, I sort of wish that if this was the winter finale, it had been a bit longer if just to get more of the human element.

    We hear Jim and Bullock say that ordinary citizens are taking Jerome's words to heart, and outside of his gang that we already knew about, I wish we'd gotten maybe snippets of chaos going on in the streets of Gotham, or maybe a short montage similar to when the ordinary people of Gotham listened to Bane, took over the city, and began dragging the rich elites out of their homes on The Dark Knight Rises.

    Yeah, kinda disappointed we didn't get something like that.

    Would've took up the budget a bit unnecessarily, imo. I think they got the idea across perfectly without having to show the entire city full of riots.

    There's still the adage of showing instead of telling. Even if it's as brief as a news report showing riots, it wouldn't take much, if anything, to show a few seconds of average people being affected. It's not needed, but it would have been more impacting to see how regular citizens have been hit by this darkness or Jerome's words rather than Jim just give expository dialogue or suffice with the same city shots...just with the city in darkness and some areas on fire.

    You want to cut back on the budget? You could easily cut back Jerome being at Wayne Manor, especially since that place seems made to be broken into, and have Bruce kidnapped somewhere else, like on the lawn. Let's face it: Wayne Manor and the GCPD seem to be the biggest sets on the show, so there's your cutback.

    I dunno, maybe all the money in the budget went towards powering the carnival.

    I don't believe this episode would've been stronger by hiring more extras or having more Jim Gordon.

    :batman:I agree with you 100%
    This was a phenomenal episode by far one of my favorites.
    I hope Gotham gets renewed for a Fourth Season.

    I hope Gotham gets renewed, too.

    however, I really want ( and hope ) that the story starts shifting away from Gordon and focusing more on Bruce ( and Selena ).

    I've realized it's completely useless to try to point out facts about the show's ratings, or that it would be a stunning surprise if it were cancelled. Or tweets. Or links to television predictor sites.

    Nygma's come a long way since S1 began. I didn't like him at first, but he's one of my favourite characters now.

    Yes, there's so much potential with Cory being in that role, and I'm glad they're going to tap into it more fully when the show returns. Feels so good to finally have a competent live action Riddler.

    Maybe it was the cinematography, but it looked like Nygma was already wearing a green suit, or at least a darker shade of green, under his coat when he was with Oswald at the pier.

    Or it was a different color. Could be wrong.

    Like Harvey said, even if they do kill him someone will just bring him back to life.

    I liked how they stuck a finger in the eye of DCEU version of Batman by Bruce swearing to Alfred he won't kill and Alfred making Bruce repeat it.

    Looked green to me.

    It's amazing to me that this little tv show has a better grasp on Batman and his universe than the current DCCU does.

    That final scene with Bruce and Alfred pretty much says it all. :cool:

    There was a couple episodes earlier this season where Nygma was wearing a very dark green suit. But the next episode appears to be the first time we see him wearing a bright green.

    It's been fairly consistent. The greener it goes the crazier he gets.

    Gordon's face when he punched Jerome's face off had me rolling.

    I was low-key hoping for some really cool fight choreography when Bruce was beating Jerome.

    Penguin, again...

    Yes it shows an idealistic young man at the very start of his crusade before the world’s had a chance to really beat him down.

    Pretty much sums up the bulk of the show from day one.

    Because having your parents die and almost being murdered by a cult certainly doesn't count.

    Having that happen when you are helpless, versus when you have prepared your whole life to fight that as a result of your initial helplessness and still can’t win have vastly different effects.
