If you tuned in for last night’s series finale of Gotham, then you were witness to the emergence of Batman in a city that couldn’t need him more. In a sense, the appropriately titled “The Beginning…” felt like a second pilot. Because of that, I’m among those supporting the idea of DC continuing the story as a comic book, but the ball is ultimately in their court.
Speaking of the Dark Knight, his big reveal was undoubtedly something viewers had been looking forward to witnessing since the series initially premiered. After all, what’s the point of doing a TV show if you’re not going to give us the ultimate payoff in the end?
So, if you’d like to relive the final five minutes of the concluding episode, then be sure to check out the video embedded at the top of this article. Not only will you see Bruce Wayne’s emotional reunion with Selina Kyle, but there’s also the unforgettable moment when Jim Gordon, Harvey Bullock and Alfred Pennyworth glimpse the Caped Crusader for themselves.
Even though I walked away from my viewing experience with a sense of satisfaction, I’m admittedly indifferent when it came to the decision to save the Batman money shot for the closing seconds. Sure, it made sense for him to work from the shadows for much of the episode from a narrative standpoint, but there are now comparisons being made to Smallville‘s finale for good reason. But unlike that show, the lead actor was actually willing to suit up in this instance.
Tell us, were you pleased with Gotham‘s series finale? Or did it leave a bad taste in your mouth? Either way, we’d like to learn what you thought, so sound off in the comments section below!
