It’s been two long weeks since our last Gotham fix, so here’s a bit of what you missed from Gotham 1.11 “Rogue’s Gallery”. Spoiler alert!

In our first Arkham-centric episode, Jim (Ben McKenzie) finds some strange goings on at the asylum, to no one’s surprise. Someone is doing electric experiments on the patients. Jim looks to Dr. Thompkins (Morena Baccarin) and Harvey (Donal Logue) for help. Go, Montoya (Victoria Cartagena)! She is becoming one of my favorite characters as she kicks Barbara (Erin Richards) to the curb for her own good. But when Barbara tries to call Jim, Ivy Pepper answers sneakily, infuriating Barbara. Poor Cat’s (Camren Bicondova) kind deed backfire’s on Jim. Don Maroni (David Zayas) teaches Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) a hubris lesson, by leaving him to stew in jail after he tries to squeeze more money out of fisherman without Maroni’s consent.

Gotham 1.12 “What the Little Bird Told Him review: Jim gets to go back on the GCPD for 24 hours or both he and Harvey are assigned to Arkham forever. They have to find the escapee, Jack Gruber (Christopher Heyerdahl). Jim guaranteed to the Commissioner (guest alert — Peter Scolari!) that he could catch him and his electric puppet, Helzinger. Harvey and Jim’s relationship has become so delightful, like brothers. The beginning of the series made it look like it would be this antagonistic thing, but Harvey has become a little more good and Jim has become a little less good, and their middle is so much fun. We get another little glimpse of Barbara, who needs to go back to her man quick. More moves are made within the crime families, with Penguin all caught up in the mix as usual. This episode was really satisfying, with some reveals for the characters, not for the audience — we knew all along. This could have easily been a season finale, except for the absence of Bruce and Cat. And we get 10 more episodes! I can’t wait for next week.
