‘Gotham’ 2×18 – Gordon starts playing by the rules of Gotham instead of the law

In this week’s episode, ‘Pinewood’, Barbara helps Gordon try and find out who killed the Waynes’ parents while Strange releases more villains back on to the streets. The focus of the week is trying to figure out who hired to kill Bruce’s parents. Both Bruce and Gordon are looking for the person who hired Matches and both of them go down very different roads and team up with very unusual people. Gordon gets help from Barbara and Bruce gets help from one of the patients of ‘The Philosopher’ aka Dr. Strange.

This show raises a lot of questions. For starters, can we trust Barbara and if she changed her ways? Could this lead to how Gordon’s daughter was born? Do they hook up one night, she gets pregnant and he marries her out of obligation? Seems likely. Now that Dr. Strange is getting more willy nilly about releasing his patients back onto Gotham, it’s only a matter of time before all of them are released. Will they all end up like Penguin, reformed until he snaps, or will they change their ways?

Dr. Strange’s experiments continue at Arkham but things get…strange…when he finds out his first patient, Karen Jennings, is being looked at by Waynes’s enterprise. While Bruce’s dad is the one that started Pinewood, Strange took over and made it his own. Obviously, Bruce is going to take it upon himself to try and figure out how to stop him.

In the next episode, Azrael rises from the dead and seeks revenge on all those who brought him down.
