The Anvil or the Hammer

It turns out Barbara wasn’t exactly the perfect match for the Ogre. I was intrigued by their relationship in Gotham Season 1 Episode 20, especially after seeing her appear to be OK with the Ogre’s dungeon play room.

But while the two had their late night tryst, that was about all Barbara was up for in Go... more

The Anvil or the Hammer

The next morning, Barbara comes down and assures Jason that the hour that they slept were great.

Jason asks her to stay and Barbara says that they shouldn’t pretend that it's more than what it is.

Like the dutiful detective-turned-commissioner leading the cast, “Gotham” did exactly what it needed to do — in the series finale and final season overall. Charged with setting up the era of Batman (without ever saying his name), Fox’s crime drama took a bit of glee going through the motions, and even if the wild minds behind it couldn’t go full-tilt crazy in its waning hours, they did ensure a respectable legacy for an overtly beautiful and sneakily ambitious broadcast drama. “The Beginnings…” — an... more

Gotham's Erin Richards Teases the Surprising Fallout of Barbara's Reveal, Reflects on Her 'Bat$#*!' 5-Year Arc
