The Queen is abducted, the Raven Society has started a coup d’etat, the Prime Minister and his government is besieged and political opponents are being strung up! England is in chaos and on the edge of a dictatorship and only one man can bring it back from the abyss…Alfred Pennyworth!

Still on the run from the law Alfred has a plan, stop running and find the Queen. Along with Bazza, Davy Boy and an increasingly amorous Martha Kane and Thomas Wayne, he tracks the Queen to the Sykes sister’s house.

With the Queen safe, order is restored as the army turn on Lord Harwood, Frances Gaunt, Peggy and Bet Sykes. But as calm returns and royal bed sheets are pulled back, a deep secret at the heart of the Pennyworth family is about to be unleashed.

The government hold a celebratory banquet in honour of their victory, Alfred’s father, one of the Raven Society’s “Old Guard”, enacts the final desperate plan of the Raven Society. As Alfred’s father arms the explosive cake and begins his suicide mission Alfred tries to stop him.

With Bet antagonising Curzon, Alfred releases his rage and shoots both Curzon and his wet nurse in the head. Meanwhile, with tensions running high across England and Her Majesty’s government on high alert the Raven Society organise a rally.

Pennyworth Pilot Synopsis

Episode Directed By: Danny Cannon

Episode Written by: Bruno Heller

Alfred Pennyworth is just out of the army. He’s still living with his parents and still dealing with the trauma of army life with his army mates Davy-boy and Bazza.

In the wider country opposing factions are threatening the stability and authority of the British Government. On the left the No-Name Society seeking a socialist utopia and on the right the Raven Society looking to establish a facist utopia.

Somewhere in the middle Alfred is keen to start his own security firm as he starts his first job as a bouncer at a Soho club. His first night is eventful. He meets an American, named Thomas Wayne, who after protecting his sister Practicia, exchanges his business details to expand his security enterprise.

Alfred also meets Esme Winikus, a dancing girl and actress, who he forms a romance with. However, his brief connection with Wayne becomes perilous as it tangles Alfred and a reluctant Esme into close contact with the Raven Society and their enforcer the mysteriously violent lady Bet Sykes.

Held hostage by Bet at the behest of the Raven Society’s leader Lord Harwood, Esme’s only chance is Alfred and the exchange of her for Thomas Wayne.

As the exchange goes down Alfred must use all his cunning, resourcefulness and his mates to rescue Esme, protect Thomas Wayne and defeat Lord Harwood and Bet Sykes. Petal.

Gotham Finale Review of 512 “The Beginning…” Synopsis

Directed by: Rob Bailey

Written by: John Stephens

As a more portly Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) prepares to leave Blackgate Prison after ten years, strange things begin to take place in Gotham on the eve of the return of Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) for the opening of the new Wayne Towers. Many of Gotham’s residents are waiting for Bruce to return including Selina Kyle (played by Lili Simmons), who is still disappointed she was left behind. Whispers are abound of a dark menace blighting the criminal underworld, while the G.C.P.D. are unable to trace missing US military supplies.

As the day arrives and Penguin walks free more offbeat moments ensue as the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) is busted out of Arkham Asylum and a shaken Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) is framed for the murder of an Arkham guard.

As Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) begins to piece together the evidence helped by an unknown figure in black, a sinister plot targeting the city of Gotham and Wayne Towers is revealed to be masterminded by Jeremiah
Valeska (Cameron Monaghan), or is that Jack, Joseph, John or Mr Jay. As Jim prepares to face the disfigured Jeremiah at ACE Chemicals a new figure emerges to be the hero that Gotham needs.

Gotham Reaches Games End. Our Gotham Finale Spoiler Free Review.

THIS IS OUR SPOILER FREE REVIEW OF THE SERIES FINALE OF GOTHAM “THE BEGINNING”.

Gotham will reach the end with it’s finale airing on Thursday the 25th of April on Fox TV. This is definitely an episode for fans of the show. While we do see the much publicised appearance of Batman in this episode, the other residents of the city get ample time on screen. This is the final time we will get to see Gotham’s version of the iconic villains and the supporting players in Batman’s world. Writer John Stephens does an admirable job in getting us up to speed quickly on what’s happened in the ten year time jump since last week’s episode and what was important about the last five seasons of the show.

The Official Trailer for the Gotham Finale

A Trip Down Memory Lane

In this final hour long episode of the show we get to visit some of the most iconic locations of Gotham. At points it’s like a trip down memory lane in Steiner Studios where the majority of the interiors for the show were filmed. Riddler is called out for using a revenge plot he used before but angrily responds “It’s a call back!” which in itself is a nice call out for the episode. This finale features John Stephens’ same twisted mix of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins in one instant, followed by the playful 60’s Batman TV show, with a dash of Geoff John’s or Scott Snyder’s comic book Batman which have been a feature of his episodes in the past. This time it feels like we as an audience have earned this.

Our Top 3 WTF moments from every episode of Gotham Season 5

Gotham has changed a lot  

Over the course of the last five years and one hundred episodes Gotham has changed a lot. Originally conceived by British producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon as “Law & Order : Gotham” the intention was to show how the police tried to help the city before the arrival of Batman. The original pilot was well received by critics and television platforms worldwide including a reported upfront payment from Netflix of $1 million per episode for the season one streaming rights. This lead to an initial sixteen episode order for season one. The show premiered in September 2014 to over fourteen million viewers and received a full season order extending the show to twenty two episodes.

Gotham Season 1 to 5 Posters

The changes came early on in season one as the show began to pivot away from the procedural police drama with the G.C.P.D. vs the mounting mafia-like crime families. A number of major comic book characters did not return to the show including Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen, mainstays of Gotham Central which provided a lot of influence on the original concept. More and more villains were brought on throughout season two, aptly named “Rise of The Villains” and “Wrath of The Villains” to placate vocal Batman “fans” calling for the Nolan version of the character on TV. With Bruno Heller moving on after the season two finale more of Bruce’s journey towards becoming the Batman came to the forefront of the story.

Gotham Enters No Man’s Land

On May 13th 2018, four days before the season four finale aired, Gotham was belatedly renewed for a fifth and final season of ten episodes. This order was extended to twelve episodes. A lot of this season has been spent getting the city of Gotham back from the “No Man’s Land” cliffhanger from season four. But it has also spent some time on fan favourite pairing like BatCat and Nygmobblepot while introducing iconic villains such as Bane and Scarface along with their own versions of the Joker and Harley Quinn in Jerome and Ecco.

A new Catwoman?

Sadly, as we mentioned on our last episode Camren Bicondova, announced that she does not appear in the final episode of the show. She was the first actor who appeared on screen  in the first episode of Gotham and it’s sad that she couldn’t round out the show with the rest of the cast. The good news is new comer Lili Simmons clearly studied Bicondova’s performance as Selina Kyle. She maintains a similar poise while also delivering a truly iconic moment for the character. The finale episode is the ultimate fan letter to Gotham and the characters featuring even more comic accurate versions than we’ve seen before.

Gotham Finale Verdict

When all was said and done I really enjoyed this final episode of Gotham. My only wish would have been that the one month gap that Fox had placed between episodes 10 and 11 of this season could have come between episodes 11 and 12. The nostalgia for the show feels slightly misplaced at times since it had an episode just last week. But that’s a minor complaint. I think many of us Gotham fans will watch this episode multiple times wondering what might have been.
