I've accepted that Gotham is meant to be catoony and campy at times. Strange though because Arrow never feels that way to me. Guess it's a stylistic choice. As you mentioned Sean, I like that the world is opening up. This episode didn't feel crowded like the pilot but then again it's not a pilot. I'm in for the season, have a good feeling about this series (and the ratings are decent, so hopefully Fox won't cancel it).

Wow now that you mention it I can picture her in The Borgias! The Tudors was a long time ago, still can't remember her in that.

The preview doesn't show any major character dying but with this show I think that's a given. I spoke to Kevin Durand in a conference call today and he kept saying "if I make it to season 2." I was like... dude if they kill you off the fans riot. Eichhorst was not in the book. They combined a couple of characters to come up with this very cool baddie. He's one of my faves! The finale is called "The Master," so the Sardu story is coming. Thanks so much for your feedback Tiffany!!!

Hi Marion, don't worry it's not goodbye next week when The Strain goes on hiatus. I will still be covering the Season 2 production and any casting news via Twitter. Plus, there are plenty of other shows I review here at the site ;) I honestly don't remember Ruta Gedmintas (Dutch) in The Tudors or The Borgias, but I think the character was a great addition to the series. Jim Watson is the best, he's really impressed me this season. Hope we're told in the finale how the hooded strigoi knew about Gus. My guess is he's safe with the strigoi army and will come together with Setrakian and company in the finale. We'll see, I can't wait!

Excellent point about Dutch, to make her more interesting the Nora character has suffered. Nora is a long term character though, Dutch might not be. I agree with you, why can't the female characters be as likeable as the guys? Then again, look at Eph... Can't get more annoying than that. Eichhorst has proven to be the best villain on the show. Yeah there's the Master, but I still find Eichhorst more intimidating. As always, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the episode San!

Thanks Adam, I appreciate it. My thinking is he healed the old man, probably isn't done with him yet but has no intention of making him immortal. The FX finale teaser spoiled the fact the Master's holding back. Why exactly we'll find out next week. It's going to be an insane finale with a major cliffhanger! Looking forward to checking out your recap in the morning.

You know I felt the same way the first time I watched it. There's a lot to take in. After my third go at the episode I enjoyed it much better. Yeah tweet live with us next week, it's a total blast!

I'm with you Robin, the writers need to do whatever to fix Fitz. I believe Simmons will be back in Episode 3. This week we get some more imaginary-Simmons. The first time I watched the episode it felt disjointed, there's just too much going on. Once I'd seen it a few more times, I felt much more comfortable with it. It's a very similar structure to the last few episodes of Season 1. Those worked so I bet they're using them as a kind of guide for this season. Loved your feedback, thanks so much! See ya next round table!

No no not at all... Sometimes I just wonder how I even get through a review when it's past midnight hehe Thanks for the compliment, I appreciate it!

Definitely not a show for you, it's not meant to be taken seriously. All in good fun.
