The “Gotham” season 2 premiere was a solid hour of television, and for the most part it also covered a lot of ground. We had a chance to see Jim Gordon sell a part of himself to Oswald Cobblepot to get Commissioner Loeb out of a job, but in turn, he did get his badge and gun back. He’s back on the case, and there’s a pretty big one coming on “Knock, Knock” next week. Here’s a hint: It is going to revolve almost entirely around him figuring out what happened at Arkham Asylum to cause many of the inmates, including his ex Barbara Kean, to escape.
The synopsis below teases that the culprit Theo Galavan does have a mission for Barbara and company, but it may take time for it to be revealed; meanwhile, we could see more of Bruce Wayne with a familiar face from the Batman universe, and Edward Nygma is going to show off some more of his new-found confidence:
“On the heels of his reinstatement, Gordon is thrust onto the high-profile case tracking the deadly inmate escape from Arkham Asylum. Meanwhile, Galavan plans his next move, while Bruce asks for help from his father’s old friend to unlock the secrets in his office, and Nygma asks out Kristin Kringle (guest-star Chelsea Spack) on a date.”
Don’t you think that this is going to be an exciting hour? There is certainly enough happening for that to be so. The premiere set up the rest of the season in extraordinary fashion, giving us a variety of different things to look forward to. When a solid Bruce Wayne story is the worst thing that the show did in the premiere, you know you’re in a good spot.
