NEW VILLAIN: Cameron Monaghan who plays Jarome Valeska was one of the newbies that I felt hadn't quite made the character his own. It seems as if in some scenes Cameron didn't know exactly how he wanted to deliver. With Jarome being as crazy as he is, I can understand that the delivery is probably way easier said than done and trust me I wouldn't want the job. There is speculation that Jarome is the Joker and with the way he's acting, laughing and dancing around it's highly possible. If he is, maybe Cameron is feeling the pressure of bringing one of GOTHAM'S must talked about villains to life in the TV Show world. More to come on that...
Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) I didn't feel like she was over acting and actually liked her the first season before she snapped. I'm just disappointed that she was the one to throw James Gordon off his game this episode and although she'd like to go for bad she's really kind of bland to me. I felt like so much could have, should have happened from the time she walked into the police station to lure out Gordon other than him ending up in an alley getting the snot or should I say blood beat out of him. I know a part of Gordon still cares about Barbara and he wants to save her but with the knowledge that the villains are on the loose and just coming from a bus full of teens and gasoline set by the self proclaimed Maniax, he should have known not to follower her without some back up.
Harvey Bullock is back! Yes! I think that Harvey and Gordon make a good team although I don't really feel like Gordon needs Harvey's bad guy twists as much as he did last season because Gordon is willing, now, to get dirty when he has to. In the first season Gordon was more reserved and would do anything to avoid having to get dirty until he was forced to. Now Gordon just makes the choice before he is forced-In my opinion anyways.
Did Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) really fire Alfred? That was a shocker for me. I'm so glad Bruce came to his senses and hired Alfred back shortly after he fired him for breaking his father's computer. I know that Alfred is only trying to protect Bruce and I absolutely agree that Bruce is about to dig up dirt in a grown folks world. HE'S NOT READY but now Alfred has agreed to teach him.
