‘Gotham’ Season 2 Episode 10 – Son Of Gotham | TV Review
Yes, yes yes! Gotham has finally delivered the type of enthralling episode it has been promising since it started. This is a great Batman prequel story and not like last episodes police procedural. Finally the mechanical Gordon (Ben McKensie) is shown to be vulnerable when the physical threat of Galavan (James Frain) is revealed.
The slow crescendo to the order of Saint Dumas has reaped huge benefits moving away from the villain of the week structure. There is a proper cliffhanger to the episode and it is the first time I had to watch the next episode straight away, I couldn’t wait. It has set up the new phenomenon of the mid season finale to great effect.
There are more glimpses of Harvey Dent (Nicholas D’Agosto) in courtroom action, Sean Pertwee‘s great Alfred in tense action and further interaction between Penguin and the future riddler. There is also an intense interrogation scene involving Bruce Wayne offering further glimpses into his dark knight future.
The comic sensibility and visuals in the timeless Gotham City continues to enhance the series tone, which finally seems to be hitting its stride. Next weeks episode will prove if it was worth the wait.
