I'm about one or two more bad episodes away from dropping this. I loved the first season and the start of Season 2 (the stuff with Jerome Valeska). But it's been a gradual downhill slide since then, and now the show just seems like an over-stuffed mess.

We all knew that was coming with Ivy.

I'm doing fine with the show so far, however it is quite different than what I thought it was going to be when it first started which is not really a bad thing as it would basically be another cop show which is boring.

Yeah I guess that's one way to add another hot female to the show. Throw her into the muck and then she comes out much older and way hotter.

It will make for some very strange potential story arcs. Poison Ivy is now much older than her best friend Selina. It's going to be very creepy when she hits on Jim Gordon.

I thought the entire opening scene with Bruce and the lady from the
Spoiler:
Court of Owls
was clumsily handled. That kid just isn't much of an actor. I also thought the whole bargain they struck was ham-fisted.

When is Wayne Manor going to get better security? For a billionaire, virtually every character on the show has broken into his home.

I don't remember Jerome, but I agree with the rest. It's just a train wreck now.

I for one like the addition of Jamie Chung playing Valeria Vale.
Hugo Strange is back. YAY! That's the good part, the bad part, he is now tied in with Fish.

I hope Fish doesn't appear much more this season. I assume she'll come back in the future.

I also like the addition of Jamie Chung to the series. Though I'm not digging any sort of love triangle between Vale and Jim Gordon when his baby mama returns.

That was the name of the very Joker like character they had going for a few episodes. A lot of fun despite it being an obvious rip off of the famous performances that had come before.

As for that last episode, obviously not as good as killing her off, but I'll take Fish disappearing into the dark for most of this season. And that about does it for any good that came out of that episode since she took Strange with her.

I would think Fish would be gone for a while since didn't she leave the first time because she didn't want to do another entire season?
