Gotham is one of my favorite TV shows. Third season, was undoubtedly the best, in my humble opinion. The 2-part season finale was beyond exciting and characters would just drop off like flies left and right. I loved it.
What got me excited for the fourth season, was when we found out Drew Powell’s Butch Gilzean’s character’s “real” name was Cyrus Gold.
Believe me, I was a giddy little school girl when I found out in the 3rd season’s finale that he was mudda F’N CYRUS GOLD!
So when episode 5 of season 4 came rolling around, I was shocked in amazement to see Solomon Grundy’s origin story. Holy. Serious. Fuck.
I am curious where they will go with Grundy’s character. He’s basically a hulking man-child and I wonder if he might even be a hero instead of a villain. (Off-tangent, a similar film plot where it involved a hulking man-child who was forced to fight in death matches is Lou Ferrigno’s film, Cage.) If previous episodes are any indication, they will make sure that Arkham will sound like a better place to be in than Gotham City…
I will definitely be anticipating to see what happens with Solomon Grundy’s story arc. Major congrats to Drew Powell to becoming one of DC’s legendary villains.
