Last week on Gotham, it was a “very merry unbirthday” for Alice Tetch (Naian Gonzalez Norvind), and Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie). Jim could not shake the Mad Hatter’s (Benedict Samuel) spell, and kept trying to kill himself – Barnes (Michael Chiklis) saved him with a clunk on the head, and Lee (Morena Baccharin) with a voiceover of previous advice. The inevitable crazy confrontation ended with Alice’s death. Fake Bruce (David Mazouz) saved then kissed Selina (Camren Bicondova) , and real Bruce found out. Nygma and Butch (Cory Michael Smith and Drew Powell) struggled for Penguin’s (Robin Lord Taylor) favor. Penguin was elected mayor, and Barnes got infected with Alice’s tainted blood.

Last week on Damien, I fell victim to one of the classic misdirections; the dream state episode. But it was really convincing! I mean we’re dealing with a show about the Antichrist and those manipulating him, so to me anything is fair game. Damien (Bradley James) tried committing suicide, but was saved at the last minute. His dream, fueled by drugs, alcohol, and carbon dioxide, saw Lyons (Scott Wilson) and Ann Rutledge (Barbara Hershey) in cahoots to manipulate him. They even pulled a trick involving his long lost “mother”. His friends Amani (Omid Abtahi) and Simone (Megalyn Echikunwoke) are also conspiring against him. Now awake, he’s weary of everyone and determined to find the truth about himself.
