I forgot to post a thread for last week's episode and too much time had passed when I realized it. So I'm combining last week and this week's threads.

So if you had not watched last week yet or were wondering where it was, post your thoughts here.

I was right, the government bombed Haven. This Gotham deserves being wiped off of the map anyways.

Everyone looks so strange in that promo picture.

Mostly caught up with the season yesterday. Watched all episodes except for the most recent. Entertaining so far but I'm glad this is the wrap up season.

It looks like an outtake, -the lighting is too bright and undramatic and the poses are odd (particularly "The Riddler"), some are smiling and some are in character. I hate to say it, but Camren ("Selina") looks older than Morena Baccarin.

Morena Baccarin hasn’t even made an appearance this season has she?

She has definitely packed on some pounds, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

So it was revealed that Walker was responsible for the attack on Haven, and it says Jamie Murray plays Walker, but I don't recall Jamie Murray showing up in person. Was she just the voice on the radio at this point? Or did I miss something?

She's been in the credits every week, but I didn't see her until a preview (I don't know if it was for the upcoming episode or the rest of the season).

If you've been following the gossip circuit over social media, Selina had a very rough time after season four ended. Shaved her hair off and gained a lot of weight. She's worn a wig all season.
