Gotham season 4 episode 2 preview: The Scarecrow’s reign of terror

Gotham season 4 episode 2Let’s begin this Gotham season 4 episode 2 preview piece with a chilling reminder: The Scarecrow is a major part of this season. Over the next few episodes, this iconic character is going to do everything that they can to establish a strong foothold in Gotham, and that means using as his primary method of operation fear. He’s got his mask, he’s got a unique ability to drive people to their worst nightmares, and he also has an air of mystery on his side. Jonathan Crane slipped off the radar years ago, and in that time had an opportunity to learn a thing or two more about what he was capable of and how much suffering he could inflict.

We do think that there is quite a bit of specificity in “A Dark Knight: The Fear Reaper,” which is the title for next week’s new episode. The synopsis below offers up additional insight on the Crane storyline plus a few other odds and ends:

Gotham season 4 episode 2 synopsis – “Under pressure to prove that the GCPD is still powerful, Gordon attempts to bring in Jonathan Crane. However, Gordon puts himself in a dangerous situation at Arkham when he is forced to fight off lunatics and the demon within himself. Meanwhile, with Barbara’s unexpected return, Selina and Tabitha must consider risks that come with joining her in the weapon business in the all-new “A Dark Knight: The Fear Reaper” episode of GOTHAM airing Thursday, Sept. 28 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX.”

The Selina and Tabitha storyline will probably accelerate over the next several weeks when you remember more of who Selina is becoming. The show wants to create a compelling, dangerous Catwoman. In order to do that, they do need to showcase her training and learning how to properly use some of the tools in her arsenal. Tabitha is going to be a valuable mentor in that sense, but you do have to wonder now how Barbara will be integrated into this story. She was left for dead at the end of season 3, and we don’t imagine that she is going to be all that at peace with what’s transpired when this episode comes on the air.

This makes you all the more terrified of the Scarecrow given that Crane has seemingly now left his former identity behind and isn’t going to let anyone use his father’s fear toxin other than himself. Meanwhile, he may also decide to use some of it on Jim, who has been through so much psychological torment on the show at this point that it’s hard to know if it is ever going to end.
