Gotham: Beast of Prey Recap

gotham-logo

Well Gotham is back from it’s mini break with only 4 episodes left in the season to go.  The biggest thing to probably remember from last season that the Wayne Board is out to get Bruce.  Gordon decided to basically blackmail Loeb, which got him Bullock’s file but no one else from the GCPD.  Now Gordon is head of the GCPD union, thanks to blackmail.

Gordon pays a visit to Bruce who brings him a sandwich that he actually made, I really didn’t know that he was capable of actually making simple food of any kind.  Gordon is smart enough to realize that they know who stabbed Alfred.  He also realized that Alfred plan finding the guy and handling the situation himself.  

While at work, a young cop comes up to Gordon asking him to look into a case that had never really been solved and he knows Gordon is the cop to go to.  This proves that Gordon can be sweet talked so he naturally looks into the case.  It seems that she went missing for about four months before she had been found.  Based on the autopsy that Lee redid on the body it seems that she did not struggle or was she abused.  It almost seems like she had been a willing guest, but Gordon is sure that she had been kidnapped.  

Gotham - Bullock and Gordon

With the help of Nygma and some information from Lee, they are able to find four other bars, speakeasy ones that were not found during the first search.  One of those bars happens to be the right no one because the bartender remembers seeing the victim with a really good-looking guy, well those are her words.  They ask her to let them know if she sees the guy again.  

 

Gotham - The OgreDuring all to this we get a flashback of the Milo’s character meeting Fairchild at the bar, he gives her a really great line that would get most women into bed. It worked she stayed over but when she tries to leave well that doesn’t go over so well.  It seems that he keeps her there in handcuffs where she cooks and cleans for him, I am guess some other things as well.  Well she had cooked him lamb for dinner and asks him about his day.  Unfortunately, she over cooked the lamb, which caused him to break up with her.  Well if cooking well is prerequisite I would have been killed early on.  His version of breaking up is none other than killing the girls, there has been a few of them.  

After Nygma finds a copy of an image that was left at the scene, Bullock realized what was going on.  They are dealing with the work of the Ogre, who will kill any cop and their family if they go after him.  This is the main reason that he has never been brought in.  

Gotham - Gordon and Loeb

They are able to figure out after interrogating the cop who gave him the info was forced by Loeb, Loeb is trying to bring Gordon down.  Gordon than proceeds to go after Loeb right in the middle of the GCPD, where Gordon tells Loeb that he is going to find the Ogre and then he is going after Loeb.  

 

Side Stories: 

The Penguin is trying to get a hold of a restaurant, but the lady does not want to sell.  She does agree if he can get her sweet granddaughter back from the horrible guitar player she is with.  Well The Penguin has the guitar player fingers cut off, that convinces him to leave.  With her granddaughter back the lady agrees to go over terms with The Penguin.  It seems that the only reason that The Penguin wanted the restaurant was because he plans on killing Moroni there.  

Gotham - Fish

Fish, we are all curious what is going on over there, well she steps outside only to meet with the Catchers who basically tell her that they will kill her the next time that they see her outside.  She then comes up with a plan to get everyone out, she has to get the keys first.  While getting the keys the Doctor comes in so Fish has to convince him that she was trying to kill herself, not trying to escape.  Well Fish sends a bunch of the big guys out first so the Catchers catch them, while she goes back for everyone else.  The Doctor shows up but they beat him a few times before they escape to the helicopter.  The Catcher realize they are trying to escape on the helicopter, the head one shoot Fish right in the side as she is flying the helicopter.  

Bruce, well Alfred is back and looking to handle Reggie but Bruce does not want Alfred to go alone since he is not well enough.  This part is true is Alfred pops his stitches and begins to bleed again.  Well Bruce goes looking around gun ranges because that is where he thinks he will find Reggie based on what Alfred said.  Lucky for him he makes sure to send out a few messages looking for Selina who tells him that she could have hit him with a brick, the S&M flirting style they are known for begins, just the awkward pubescent version.  

Gotham - Bruce and Selina

Well Selina realizes where to find Reggie, as she laughs a Bruce for not knowing that meant shooting up drugs.  They are able to find him and Selina takes his drugs and hangs them out the window until Reggie tells them what they need to know.  Which is that some high ups at Wayne Enterprise were worried about what he knows.  Reggie also wants to know if Alfred is all right because he didn’t want to hurt him.  Reggie tells Bruce to let Alfred handle it since these people are much to big for Bruce to handle. Selina is supposed to give back the drugs but she drops them, which causes Reggie to get pissed and threaten the kids.  Reggie sees his drugs sitting on the ledge and reaches over to grab them, Bruce wants to push Reggie out the window but can’t. Selina on the other hand will not let Reggie send people after them and she pushes Reggie out of the window.  

One, it looks like Selina is starting to rank up a body count, but if we learned anything Bruce does not punish for justified killing.  He is not able to kill others, but if their death serves justice he does not disown those who do it.  Considering I have seen images of Bruce and Selina together at party, I really doubt he hates her.  Was I the only one hoping that Barbara becomes one of The Ogre’s victims?  Granted it would be a great way to get Barbara and Gordon back together but I am kind of hoping that they will just ignore comics and she doesn’t make it.  Someone is supposed to die this season, granted it’s probably Fish since she is not coming back for next season but we could all hope that it’s Barbara.  Based on the scenes we have seen for the last 3 episodes well The Ogre does set his sights on her.  

Until next time, when we get to find out what will happen between The Ogre and Gordon.  

 

Game of Thrones: The Wars to Come Recap

GoT Logo

After our very nice long break Game of Thrones is back, I know we are all very excited. I am rather excited, since I know this will be the combination of books 4 and 5, a lot happens. I know a lot always happens, but a lot more is going to happen. As always I will do my best to recap without giving anything away.

I guess I will do the recap by region/family.

Westeros:
Kings Landing

The show starts off with a flashback, which I am sure confused people, I was actually confused until I remember about Cersei visiting the witch. Cersei cuts her finger so that the witch can tell her fortune by tasting her blood, this is some serious magic.

Well Cersei finds out that she will be Queen but not to whom she thinks will be King. While she will be Queen, someone younger and more beautiful will come and cast her away (Margaery?). She is told how she will have no kids with the King, he will have 20 but she will only have 3 all with crowns of gold. Maybe that is why Cersei got into the whole incest thing, you know because she was kinda told that would be her life.

GOT - Cersei climbing stairs

Well Cersei is walking up the temple steps to where her father is has been laid to rest, while Cersei walks up she throws some massive shade/side eye at Margaery. Well Jaime is watching over his father’s body, can we please talk about those stones with the eyes painted on them, were they creeping anyone else out. Well Cersei accurately accuses Jaime of being the one to let Tyrion out. While Jaime thinks that everyone is plotting against them, he is more than likely right because everyone kind of hates the Lannisters. Cersei thinks their only enemy is Tyrion. Once Cersei was done ripping Jaime apart and told him he had a hand in killing their father she walks out of there, I am guessing we will not be seeing much of Jaime and Cersei.

While at the funeral, Cersei is pretty much drinking her way threw it and ignoring most of the people there. She does have a chat with Lancel, who has found religion and forgiveness for helping kill Robert and he time spent in Cersei’s bed. He does plead for Cersei to all find religion but she well laughs and continues drinking.

Well Loras is having a good old time with his lover Olyvar, but Margaery just barges right on in. She really has no problem with walking in on her brother.  It makes me wonder how many times she has just walked in on her brother.  Well, Olyvar leaves and has no problem being naked in front of Margaery, but Loras does not seem to mind being naked in front of his sister. Margaery is there because she is hungry and they are keeping the king waiting.  Margaery is hoping that Loras would be more discreet but he doesn’t care because everyone already knows it is not like he will be marrying Cercei now that her father is dead.  He does have a point because we all know that Cersei was completely against marrying Loras.  Margaery on the other hand, well she is stuck in Kings Landing with Cersei.

In the middle of no where in Westeros:

Brienne is all hostile because well Arya did not want her help and she is taking it out on poor Podrick.  Pod is doing everything that he can to be the best squire that he could be.  He really wants to be a squire and Brienne on the other hand does not want to be a knight or a leader.

Elsewhere is Westeros:

Littlefinger has sent Robin Arryn off to be trained, wow he is horrible, I think I could do better.  What else can we expect from a kid who was breast-fed until he was; was he ever stopped?  Well Littlefinger and Sansa are leaving him there in hopes that he will be trained, well more so that he will safe.  Well Sansa and Littlefinger ride past Brianne and Podrick in a carriage, wow Brianne is failing at this find the Stark girls.

The Wall:

Jon is beating up a young recruit, I think the one that killed Ygritte, because well he needs training.  Things are a bit awkward around there because one they do not have a new Lord Commander, I am happy that everyone still has a chance to see that, because well you will see.

Gilly is all worried that they will send her away with the baby, Sam tries to tell her that he goes where she does, but she than reminds him that they will kill him.  Yea, sorry Sam you can’t run away with Gilly, also Gilly had a point why are you not training.  I know you think you are all badass since you kill a white walker and stuff but Sam, you should still train.

Well Jon gets called by Melissandre up to the top of The Wall for a meeting with Stannis where Melissandre is eyeing Jon up and down.  I don’t blame her, it’s Jon Snow.  She also makes sure to ask if he is a virgin, well we all know where her mind is going.  Stannis offers to give the Wildlings citizenship and lands if they fight in his army.  Jon has until sundown to convince Mance to bend a knee to him.  

GOT - Mance and Melissandre

Well Jon talks to Mance, I have to give it to Jon he gives a good speech, but there is no way that Mance is going to bend a knee.  In front of everyone, Mance refused to bend a knee so they burn him like a witch.  Well I will give to Jon, he walks away and shoot Mance in the heart because he could not bare to see him struggle against the fire.  It was a horrible sight to see, if people accuse him of being partial to the wildlings for that, they are jerks, it was horrible to watch.

Free Cities:

GOT - Drunk Tyrion

Well Tyrion is freed from the box that he had to be held in the whole time.  I love how they touched on the whole bathroom thing, Tyrion did not like having to push his poop through the hole but The Spider liked throwing it overboard even less.  Well Tyrion does a great job of drinking and puking on an empty stomach only to keep drinking.  The whole reason The Spider saved Tyrion is because he thinks that he will be a great help in getting Khalessi onto the throne. Varys gives Tyrion a choice he can drink himself to death where he or go meet Khalessi, Tyrion wants to know if he can drink himself to death on the road to Khalessi.

Khalessi:

Well naturally we had to see what was going on with her, well she is having issues in her new city.  She is pulling down statues and they are killing her Unsullied that visit brothels.  It should be noted that the Unsullied really just wanted her to cuddle with him and sing to him, awww so cute.

Well it seems that some of the people are not happy about the changes that have been made, while they will accept no more slavery they do want the fighting pits back open.  Well Kahlessi is not having this, really did we think that she was going to be all right with that.  Well her new man Daario, tells her that she should open the fighting pits back up. He tells this great story how he would not be a free man today and with her had it not been for his time as a slave in the those fighting pits.  He was also smart and told her all this after a romp in the bed, nothing makes people more open-minded and relaxed than sex.

Also super cute moment between Missandei and Grey Worm, she wants to know why an Unsullied would go and visit a brothal and he tells her that he does not know. I have a feeling he does and wants that with her.

It was a nice first episode back, we got to see what was going on with a few of our favorite characters.  I know we are still wondering what is happening with Arya but previews have shown that we will find that out next episode.  It has been some time since I have read books 4 and 5 so some of the little things I do not remember anymore, as far as I can remember there was not a lot changed in the episode. I do know what is suppose to happen to our characters and many of them have a wonderful and exciting journy ahead of them. We also have some great new characters to meet, I am still upset that one of my favorite characters from the Dorne is currently not going to on the show.  There are a few other new characters who are very important that we should be meeting either this season or the next one.

Until next episode.
