Gotham 2.8

Two best things about this: Erin Richards‘ performance, and Theo Galavan‘s villainy.

  • Richards is just so much fun to watch. And appears to be having fun playing Barbara. She brings her a-game to her scenes and the dynamic between her and Ben McKenzie is terrific. Barbara takes Jim to some dark places.
  • This was the was episode where Galavan tried to get Bruce to sign over his company, using the name of the Wayne murder. Clever. Sinister. Really makes him seem like a credible villain. The surprise at the end was that Jim arrested him. I presume this is part of the plan. But how exactly?
