This week it was time to “Welcome Back, Jim Gordon” to the Gotham City Police Department as we discuss Episode 13 of Gotham which aired in the UK on Monday 23rd March 2015.
In this episode of Gotham Jim Gordon returns to the G.C.P.D. and carries on exactly where he left off before his demotion to Arkham Asylum. He starts an internal investigation among his fellow officers and detectives following a killing of a low-level and seemingly insignificant drug gang member. Oswald Cobblepott’s dreams come true, for a moment as he takes ownership of Fish’s old club; and we really get a taste of Gabe, Oswald’s right-hand man, as he acts on a favour for Jim Gordon by The Penguin. Whilst at Wayne Manor Cat has some bad news for Master Bruce.
We discuss our top five case points for Episode 13 of Gotham including the emergence of the right hand men (Butch Gilzean, Victor Zsasz and Harvey Bullock), the reshuffle of the gangster elements in Gotham, Jim Gordon’s support group, Edward Nygma and Kristine Kringle’s blossoming relationship and of course that final showdown in Fish Mooney’s club.
As was pointed out by Detective Dillon The Electocutioner/Jack Gruber really reminds us of some versions of Hugo Strange from the comics.
We also had some great twitter feedback from Channel 5 viewers, listeners and some of the actors on Gotham during our live tweet of Gotham Welcome Back Jim Gordon including Zabrena Guevara, Erin Richards, Drew Powell, J.W. Cortez and Tom Calderone.
The music at the end of this weeks episode is Hanni El Khatib‘s song Family from his album Heatseekers. This song was used in Fish Mooney’s club in Welcome Back Jim Gordon when Oswald has had a bit too much champagne.
Join us again next week as we discuss episode 14 of Gotham The Fearsome Dr. Crane. Directed by John Behring and written by John Stephens who also wrote The Baloonman and The Mask. We’re excited to see the back story of one of our favourite Batman villains. Thanks as always for listening.
Derek and John
