Yay! Barbara is gone! Ok, so maybe she is only gone for a few episodes, but I am still excited that for at least one episode I am not stuck listening to her sniveling. Beyond that, this episode focuses mostly on Bruce and Selina Kyle and Gordon and Harvey Dent. Selina Kyle is staying at the Wayne Manor due to the fact that she seems to be the only person that has any insight into the death of Bruce’s parents. Therefore, against Alfred’s wishes, Bruce allows Selina to stay with the pair in the mansion. These two are incredibly cute on screen together and the relationship that is growing between them is something that I am sure will in some way have some impact on the future when the trial comes to pass.
Gordon and Harvey Bullock are trying to solve a crime of a Blackgate prisoner escaping and doing some dirty work for one of the nearby gangs. Per usual, these two find some way to crack the case and stop at least one more bad guy from ruining the already corrupt Gotham. Even bigger than the Blackgate prisoner sequences, though, is the introduction of the famed Harvey Dent. He is going to be the one that is going to help Gordon(along with Selina’s eyewitness testimony) to figure out who killed the Waynes and finish the case once and for all. Overall, this episode was not one of my favorites. It was a little slow and I feel like the buildup is taking forever. I am ready to see things start happening, especially in terms of the Wayne case. I still love this show, but it is starting to get a little bit on the slower side and I certainly hope it does not fall the way the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did in terms of losing my interest by the end of the season.
