Wrath of the Villains: Transference



Critic Consensus: While lacking the previous episode's urgency, "Transference" compensates with fun - and by wrapping up most of the season's storylines with a delightfully bizarre twist.

Critic reviews for Wrath of the Villains: Transference

So very little of it made any narrative, emotional, or moral sense that it actually rounded back on itself, becoming such a pure form of "so bad it's good" entertainment that when I tried explaining to a friend its beauty I blacked out.

I have no idea what the shocking ending of the season two finale means for season three, but if we get more Fish Mooney and her nutty new powers of persuasion... then sign me up ASAP.

It would have taken a disastrous episode to undo all the goodwill the season earned, but Transference really gave it a good shot.

Strange days came to an end - though with stranger days perhaps to come - as Fox's Gotham wrapped Season 2.

As much as I enjoyed this season that much more than the first one, I really can't wait to see what Gotham has in store for us next. Hopefully, the next one will be even better- if not crazier.

"Transference" was a far superior ending to the season than last year's finale.
