Tonight on Gotham we will delve further into the motivation and drive behind Fish Mooney. And perhaps, get a better grasp of the power struggle between Fish Mooney and Carmine Falcone..
Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman for those of you who are just now discovering the Batman/Gotham universe) is the namesake of the episode. While the speculation is that the episode will center around child trafficing, one has to believe Selina Kyle will play a major role. We only saw about 20 seconds of screen time from the young Selina Kyle in the pilot.
The other major development that has to be addressed is that of Oswald Cobblepot (The Penguin). Last episode Gordon graciously exiled Cobblepot from Gotham. Most Bat-lore has Cobblepot establishing a base of operations away from the heart of Gotham. It will be interesting to see exactly how these showrunners decide to paint that particular picture.
And finally, it wouldn’t feel right (even if we’ve only seen one episode) if Detective Gordon’s steadfast pursuit of justice isn’t challenged by the powers around him.
Stay tuned tonight to Gotham on Fox. Following its conclusion come back here and join Jeff Sack for his recap and insight.
