Gotham: Knock Knock Recap
We are back for the second episode of Gotham, let’s see if they can keep up the momentum from the season premiere. To check out our recap of last weeks episode check it out here
Well Theo has the Mayor in a box, I fear for the Mayor.
The guys kidnap some people and throw them off a building spelling Maniax, I am guessing that is their new group name.
While the boys are making sure they have the proper TV greeting voice, the girls are whipping the Mayor who is still in the box. Barbara is not happy that she has not gotten her chance to shine. We all know how needy Barbara is.
The boys also feel a need to have who has the biggest dick contest to see who will lead the team. Jerome proved that he does not fear dying so he wins.
Jerome and them hijack a school bus of cheerleaders, thankfully Gordon is there to save the day. Gordon wins the badass award.
Barbara calls Gordon who has to be thinking who keeps giving this bitch a phone.
Well she leads Gordon out of the precinct only to have him beaten by one of the guys. While Gordon is outside Jerome and a bunch of the guys invade the precinct and start shooting the place up. Jerome shoots Commissioner Essen, thus killing her, seriously they made her commissioner and then kill her. Not sure how this is going to work out for Gordon.
Well he turned down rejoining the force, his fiance was really against him going back. It’s like look red, Bullock and Gordon have an amazing bromance. Well after the shooting Bullock comes back because they are who they are.
Bruce and Alfred were in the secret room but Alfred did not think that Bruce should learn what was on that computer so he breaks it. Bruce gets mad at Alfred and fires him, literally fires him, Bruce tells Alfred he will give him references. I am sure references from a 10 year old will go a long way. Also Alfred is Bruce’s legal guardian so how is that going to work.
Well Bruce wises up and tells Alfred that he doesn’t want him to go. In an effort to get Alfred to teach him Bruce says that he will go back to school, it must be serious.
Alfred then has a pretty cryptic talk with Lucius Fox but is looks like Lucius is being brought in, because he has to fix the computer.
Well he tries to ask out Ms. Kringle but well Nygma does not have the best pick up lines. His other half who is cool and confident because he doesn’t wear glasses wants to take over so they can get Ms. Kringle. I was really hoping that Nygma would keep it sane, but at least he did around her. Well Nygma might have helped his case when jumped in front of Ms. Kringle to save her.
I liked the episode, I know there was a lot of criticism on twitter about it being over the top but it had to be, the villain are over the top. If they had not been I would have been disappointed. I liked the episode, I like where the show is going. It really does seem to be about the villains, that will bring something to the show and story. I really want to see where this goes, be sure to check out what we would like to see happen on season 2. They have already answered some of my question in this episode.
