I feel like they take us on a 50 minute ride that we think never concludes, then BAM! we hit an out-of-nowhere conclusion that wraps things up with a messy little bow! (i.e. Butch and a bazooka)

Not sure how much more I can take of this?!

Well, at least there's only two eps left.

Spoiler:
... and a few more Bakta tanks with Galavans floating in them.


And... how can Tabitha still be alive after taking all that length? (Sounds bad to say it that way doesn't it.)

I would personally like to see a Penguin and Butch spinoff.

Another great episode. I want a prequel show with Alfred kicking ass.

Butch settled things nicely, but why wouldn't Alfred immediately put a bullet in Galavan's head the second he took off his mask? Seriously, he was there for the whole "death to the son of Gotham" thing earlier in the season. Did he think he could talk him out of it with threats?

Anyone else notice how Butch was literally drenched in water during his confrontation with the Penguin? It was comically bad and made me laugh out loud. Clearly someone had spritzed him with water to simulate sweat but it was outrageous looking.

Awesome ending. Too bad Fish is back next week.

Was that supposed to be Killer Croc that they lead out of that cell near the end?

Looked like Killer Croc to me. I'm not too big on the Hugo Strange creating all the freaks in Gotham angle. Croc was supposed to be born that way.

The actress who plays Selina is incredibly beautiful. If she looks like this now you can only imagine what she'll look like in 10yrs.

She's 17, too late for much change.

He still could have been. They could have just been messing with his head after he went in for help coping.

My first thought is that it was Killer Croc... and I must say, I did get a little excited at the prospect.

From a cohesive look at the Batman universe, it undermines how great of a hero the Dark Knight really is if all his villains can be stopped by a regular police detective most of the time.

Introducing superpowered villains like Azrael and Killer Croc will make this point much more obvious and increasingly surreal. Jim Gordon needs to start losing more often, but this show doesn't ever have to worry about portraying Batman himself.

How long before we see Firefly zipping around with a jetpack?

By season five, Jim Gordon and Alfred will defeat Darkseid by themselves. With a little help from the Riddler.

Wong and Pickins (Strange and Peabody) have a great chemistry.

I was glad to see Azreal go only because this version of him was a bit campy. I love James Frain who played Galavan/Azreal but he didn't seem right for the Azreal part of that story line.

I notice Selina lost the curl in her hair.
For someone that live on the streets, Selina sure has a Glam look about her.
Wonder where she goes to take a shower and do her laundry?

Wong was awesome in last week's John Oliver show on HBO. Good stuff.

Wong has been incredible. Strange and his assistant need to stick around.

The full cast has been excellent, IMO. If anything, Gordon is the weak link.
