    These are mildly spoiler-y so I'll put under the cut

    Now that Ivy is back, I'm wondering whether she or anyone on the show will comment on the change in appearance. But then, this is Gotham, so even saying the chemicals did it would probably suffice.

    Honestly while I liked the actress, I found the whole thing to be rather cringey myself. Artificially aging the character up so that you can specifically focus on her sex appeal, it's just awkward and bleh. And this show already has plenty of femme fatale female characters, so it's not like she's filling some niche. And her mental state also makes it uncomfortable.

    I'd have preferred that she just get her powers , but stay young and we see her progression over time.

    And of course
    Jim and Vale hooked up already. That's just what they do on TV I guess, attractive man and woman cannot just work together and be friends without it getting sexual.

    I'm fine with Jim banging Valerie but it was way too sudden.

    I have to say I am liking this season so far. In general I find most shows start of strong the first season then get worse as each season goes on but this show has found a way to keep things interesting

    Honestly, having Jim and Valerie hook up this early is a wasted opportunity. Their chemistry was so palpable, but now that tension has been released after only two episodes.

    This is typical of Gotham however. All fireworks, no investment.

    I agree about Ivy. These are two completely different characters. I'm no proven writing talent or anything, but wouldn't it have been more interesting to see her personality change over the course of a couple episodes, rather than being told she's changed and having her act OOC?

    To be fair, they're still great at handling the relationship between Bruce and Selina. Let's hope they stay on the ball with that one.

    I don't agree, for reasons I've stated over on reddit(u/Graham765). I constantly find myself asking "why are you two friends?" The problem isn't the acting, and its not the writing of Bruce. The problem is squarely in how they're written together, and specifically how Selina is written.

    Selina should be the person that channels the audiences feelings towards Bruce and pushes his buttons, pokes fun of him. Basically, everytime she enters the room, things should go from serious to light-hearted. She should be a sassy sort of playful, and Bruce should be sarcastic and deadpan.

    I remember when Selina and Bruce first met on Gotham. Those episodes were perfect. Selina was concerned mainly with entertaining herself and watching Bruce squirm everytime she pushed his buttons.

    However, that disappeared very quickly. It morphed into Bruce constantly using Selina, and her agreeing for no other reason than . . . she's lonely? She's worried about his safety whenever he chooses to do something stupid? I'm not surprised she's angry at him. Regardless, rarely are their interactions about THEM. Their interactions are always about Wayne enterprise, Indian Hill, and what Bruce needs her to do for him.

    The dynamic of their relationship is all wrong these days.

    Anyways, if you do reply to this, please reply in a thread where it wouldn't be off-topic. I'll see it.

    Another thing is Natalie Lind had more of a seductress vibe to her than what I've seen from Maggie despite being half her age.

    True, but Maggie's Ivy wasn't really trying to seduce anybody. We should give her some time, and see what she does.

    Well, DC scores for having Gordon banging diversity

    Blonde -> Italian -> Asian

    and WTF happened to Female Flash, lost her legs?

    and what's the ability of the masked Bane woman, fire-resistance? She can't chase down little Ivy, and gets swamped by the mob.
