    Given all we know, he probably still won't get the name.

    But let's face it, if post-vat fall Jeremiah faces off against Batman in the finale, we all know who he really is.

    it's a shame this series is ending just as it's ramping up to the Batman stuff ( even if it's incredibly young Batman...….lol ).

    still wish they could do another 1 or 2 seasons with the focus now on Bruce as Batman.

    WB would never allow a live-action Batman show, unfortunately.

    I’ve loved this season so far. This is probably my favorite superhero show. Not a fan of Jeremiah’s look though. The eyebrows aren’t working for me.

    We are almost halfway into the season and I gotta say, I still can't fully buy the idea that Gotham needs a Batman since they've managed to do a good job in making Jim Gordon and the GCPD (under his leadership) competent when it comes to taking on the criminals in the city.

    Granted, Bruce has helped here and there, but I still haven't seen anything that strongly indicates on why the city needs Batman when it has Jim Gordon. It's not like we will see Bruce become Batman to end the current "No Man's Land" situation that they have going on.

    You mean... like not being able to catch Scarecrow and not being able to stop 300 people from being killed off?

    I actually feel the opposite.

    'Gotham' EP Ensures Batman Moment Won't Be Like 'Smallville's Superman

    One thing I'm wondering: how will they naturally bring up the influence(s) that will lead Bruce into becoming Batman, and not nameless vigilante Dark Knight that he is right now.

    Because as of now, regardless of the cave and regardless of Season 4's Batman cameo, nothing has happened that naturally has led Bruce to realize the bat motif is the right direction. And with this being the final season, it's becoming more and more obvious to me that it's going to be accidental. Despite the dragging and mistakes and decisions they made on themselves, Clark becoming Superman on Smallville was a natural progression. I don't see that here, which is why I say it might be an accidental.

    A good example of that would be what Miller did in his Batman: Year One movie script, remember that? When Bruce was homeless with his African American buddies, Big and Little Al? lol
    Anyway, how Bruce became Batman in that version was by accident: he had his father's ring, which was "TW" one letter onto the other, and when he fought someone and left an imprint, it looked like a bat. Hence forth, Bruce was inspired to be Batman.

    I feel Gotham is going to have to do that: that accidental moment that sets up Bruce becoming Batman. It won't be Miller's ring idea, but its gonna be something he does that in turn 1) works, 2) successful, 3) positive repercussions, and the end result is: Batman.

    What do you think that will be?

    It was said a while back that Bruce would have an encounter with bats that would influence his Bat motif.

    Given that we haven't seen Man-Bat yet, it might have something to do with him.

    Never knew he existed. Well I wonder if.....oh boy, don't tell me that, Man Bat is a silent protector, he dies, and Bruce is like "I'll pick up where he left off." Like what? Argh.

    Anyway, I was thinking this also: if you look at the Penguin and Riddler's costumes in the finale, they're comic book accurate, but I also feel they have a touch of influence from the '60s show. Do you think that will be the case for the batsuit? As in, the logo is like a modified version of the Adam West logo, etc.
