So, I’ll admit that last week’s preview had me bracing for a bad episode. Maybe not ‘jump the shark’ bad, but still a downturn that would be hard to recover from.

The good news is, it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. The bad news is, it’s still a definite step down from the last few weeks.

Well, it was natural the show’s momentum would eventually have to ease off. You can’t be all acceleration all the time, especially in your first season.

Cautious side of optimism fading…fading…

Okay, so it’s not gone yet, but all the same, I get the sense Gotham has finally found its voice.

And we’re back.

I’d say this was a nice, relaxing time off, but it’s been busy. So picking right back up is actually just a welcome return to routine.

I have to give Gotham some points off the bat for this week’s episode. For the time being, it looks like they’re planning to stick to the changes of the mid-season finale. This isn’t to say this is a full-blown triumphant return, but I’m happy they’re not just trying to reset the board.
