Gotham 4.4 FAQ
What’s it called?
“The Demon’s Head.”
Ben McKenzie, who plays James Gordon, contributes his first-ever produced teleplay.
What says Fox?
“Bruce Wayne puts the lives of Gotham Natural History Museum historian Niles Winthrop and his grandson, Alex, in danger in an attempt to uncover the meaning behind his prized knife from the auction. Meanwhile, Ra's Al Ghul proves he'll take deadly measures to achieve what he wants. Also, with Sofia Falcone in town, she is on a mission to win back Gotham from Penguin.”
How does it start?
Dr. Winthrop examines the knife Bruce purchased.
What’s doing with Riddler?
He vows to kill Penguin. Again.
What’s doing with Jim and Leslie?
Morena Baccarin’s name is still in the opening credits but Jim appears to have moved on. Again.
Is there a bat on Bruce’s chest at this point?
Bruce sticks to being Bruce this week.
Does Butch make his debut as Solomon Grundy this week?
No Butch or Cyrus or Grundy this week.
What’s doing with Ivy and Catgirl?
Both wholly absent this week.
What’s doing with Freeze and Firefly?
Only one of them turns up.
What’s doing with Dr. Strange?
No new go for Hugo.
Is the tetched Nathanial Barnes back?
The big news?
Shockingly, screenwriting neophyte McKenzie’s script for tonight’s episode turns out to be the best of the season so far.
What else is Fox not telling us?
Barbara’s coif has again evolved.
Dog Boy. Jefferson Airplane. “Stab You.” “How do you spell …” “The other Victor.” “But they’re roomy.” “That can be anything.” “Can we just torture them now?” “Why not?” “Arrest me.” “Your riddles suck!” Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin. Alexander Siddig as Ra’s Al Ghul. Corey Michael Smith as Nygma. Erin Richards as Barbara Kean. Anthony Carrigan as Victor Zsasz. Ben McKenzie as Gordon.
What’s not so good?
When Gordon says he doesn’t believe Bruce’s story about a dead person coming back to life, you have to wonder when Gordon stopped paying attention. Also? No Morena Baccarin as Leslie Thompkins, Maggie Geha as Hot Ivy, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Camren Bicondova as Catgirl or Donal Logue as Bullock. That's right: no Bullock this week!
How does it end, spoiler boy?
