    A bit surprised we're getting Bane.

    Bane's father, Eduardo Dorrance/King Snake, is also supposed to appear, starting this episode.

    Some Pictures of the upcoming episode. First look at Bane, , and I can’t wait to see how Bane/Jim’s storyline plays out! very special interaction between Penguin and Hugo Strange, but noToo bad we’ll have to wait an extra week for episode 6 thanks to Fox though. Also, was hoping we’d get a look at the Bruce, Jeremiah, Ecco and Selina side of things in these pics but this is still good :

    Also thought it was pretty cool how Jim defused the detenator!

    Loving the episode. Eduardo's cool, but Shane West is doing the "evil glare" thing too often. :funny:

    Betting it's going to be Hugo Strange that ends up turning Edouardo into Bane.

    Guess I was wrong. He was a villain the whole time.

    Wonder who is controlling Ed?

    Love Harvey’s conversation with Bruce!

    This was a very, very good character episode. I think it's a testament to the show's history and continuity that everyone realizes that despite how zany and weird Ed is, he's not a mass murderer or killer aside from, as the show pointed out, Kringle and Dougherty. If people like Barbara, Jim, and Oswald had no history with Ed, they'd probably think him guilty.

    And I really enjoyed his conversation with Penguin. It just reminded me how much I enjoy the chemistry between Robin Lord Taylor and Cory Michael Smith. They've come a long way from Oswald being Fish Mooney's penguin boy and Nygma being the lab tech at the GCPD. And yeah, loved Harvey's talk with Bruce. He's also come a long way from being Jim's corrupt partner to being one of the most loyal and hardworking officers at the precinct.

    Plus, tis nothing but a flesh wound for Jeremiah. Of course he wasn't out of the game.

    I just noticed something....

    So in The Batman '43, there is this villain named Dr Daka. A Japanese mad doctor. Jerome sounds like him! lol

    Beyond that, I hope in 2 weeks the show begins to move Bruce more forward in the limelight. I know Gordon was the main, second to Bruce; but for a while now, it felt like it was all about Gordon and Bruce was an afterthought. And with what the finale will be, and this show will ultimately end with, they need to do this.

    Is there something going on that precludes this and presumably anything else from airing new episodes next Thursday? I know next Tuesday is the State of the Union, but is there something happening next Thursday that I just missed?

    Knew it. Jeremiah faked his death. Sorta. I can see some people who border on nitpicking having a major issue with how he survived though.

    Really liked that scene between Bruce and Harvey. Was nice to see them having a bonding moment of sorts.

    Can't wait to see what Eduardo's got cooked up next.

    Kinda funny that in all three of Bane's live action appearances he ended up working for someone else. In Batman and Robin it was Poison Ivy, in The Dark Knight Rises it was Talia Al Ghul, and in Gotham it's a politician named Theresa Walker.

    They can't seem to realize he's basically his own man.

    I laughed when I noticed West was holding his vest like Hardy would hold his coat in TDKR.

    I was actually surprised they set up Eduardo to be a villain right away. I was thinking they would do that in a later episode.

    They probably would have had they had a 22-episode order.

    So does Jeremiah know where the batcave is? That was the cave and the manor, right?

    Confusing.
