Critic reviews for Heroes Rise: The Primal Riddle
It is infinitely hilarious to me that the first two recruits Oswald goes searching for are the two that immediately cancel each other out on a physical level; Mr. Freeze and Firefly.
Gotham can't go wrong any time Riddler gets a big spotlight. And with so many other subplots rolling, we're in for what's shaping up to be an epic final string of episodes.
In the end, "The Primal Riddle" offers no answers, nothing new and no excitement beyond a "Did you see what they did there?" gag straight out of a "Family Guy" episode.
Things are about to get even crazier in Gotham as if it wasn't already crazy enough. The pieces are falling into place on Gotham Season 3 Episode 17 as every side works to take control of the city.
Gotham has wasted no time since its return from The Longest Hiatus Ever in getting back into the crazy swing of things, and so far, everyone who is anyone in Gotham has been invited to the party.
