The second season finale of Gotham – Wrath of the Villains: Transference – flirts heavily with going off the rails, but hangs on to provide a potentially catastrophic cliffhanger in which none of the usual suspects are actually at risk.

Oh, no. This time it’s Gotham as a whole that’s in trouble.

As Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) steams toward the end of its second season, it has not fallen into bad comics goofiness like it did last year. Instead, it’s gotten darker and more twisted – we’ve even caught a glimpse of Killer Croc (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) in the dying moments of last week’s ep (just before Firefly’s attempted fricassee of Selina Kyle.

Wrath of the Villains: A Legion of Horribles picks up right where it left off and carries on to a staggering cliffhanger that will lead into next week’s season finale with style (if not grace).

Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) returns with a bang this week as Edward Nygma inspires Dr. Hugo Strange with a way to bring the recently resurrected Theo Galavan out of chaotic madness to serve his own purposes.

Meanwhile, Nygma makes Jim Gordon an ominous promise and Captain Barnes discovers that his ‘by the book’ methodology doesn’t always work.

Now that Bruce Wayne has the name of his parents’ killer, and a gun, it’s time for him to seek out the infamous Matches Malone. It’ll take an audience with God (kind of), but the meeting is now inevitable.

Meanwhile, Oswald T. Cobblepot has a little more therapy to face and Edward Nygma learns that Jim Gordon is looking into Kristin Kringle’s whereabouts and leaps to a completely unfounded suspicion.

The second half the second season of Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) is well underway with new villains Hugo Strange and Victor Fries getting a significant amount of screentime – and Bruce Wayne returning from Switzerland.

A Dead Man Feels No Cold might sound like a Ross MacDonald novel (or a Stan Lee comic), but it’s very much a DC Comics tale dealing with life, love, torture (in the name of mental health) and death.

Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) returns with our first real look at Victor Fries aka Mr. Freeze. Also Oswald T. Cobblepot is insane – and a certain hot young villainess returns to Gotham’s underworld.

Mr. Freeze opens on Jim Gordon’s hearing vis-à-vis the events of the fall finale, with Gordon answering questions from Assistant DA Harvey Dent (Nicholas D’Agosto) – including the death of Theo Galavan; we meet the new king of Gotham’s underworld – Butch (?)(Drew Powell) – as he receives a visit from Tabitha Galavan (Jessica Lucas), and a cop on her beat has a chilling encounter. And that’s just the teaser!

Gotham-return2

When Gotham returns on Monday, February 29th, it will have a new subtitle: Wrath of the Villains (see above banner).

And, as we saw in the waning moments of the fall finale, there’s a cool new villain lurking in a dark alley – Victor Fries (whom we know is destined to become Mr. Freeze).

Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) reaches its fall finale with an episode that is full of change. Alliances are made and dissolved; last week’s cliffhanger that wasn’t is resolved, and we see glimmering of what’s to come.

Despite some miraculous healing (or at least partial healing), some strange family values moments, perfect timing and two new additions to the streets of Gotham City all add up to a fun ride.

Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) has been showcasing individual characters (mostly villains) almost every episode – even as it developed Theo Galavan’s plan to destroy the city and rebuild in his own image. We’ve seen, among others, Jerome Valeska, Edward Nygma, Oswald ‘Penguin’ Cobblepot and , of course, Galavan given episodes that explored their backgrounds or highlighted aspects of their personalities.

Tonight’s the Night is Barbara Kean’s turn in the spotlight in an episode that brings all manner of arcs into play.

After the revelations of the last few weeks of Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C), it’s time the series moved to the next level. Theo Galavan and his beloved sister Tabitha have discovered Penguin’s ruse; Edward Nygma has (accidentally) ruined what might be his one shot at love; Alfred has made it clear that he wants Selina to stay away from Bruce.

Rise of the Villains: Mommy’s Little Monster takes all the coagulating emotions from the recent past and forms them into an hour that is, to say the least, explosive.
