Gotham Season 5 Episode 6: “Stitches” Review

Most of this episode followed the fallout from the reveal that Eduardo and his boss Walker were controlling Ed and were involved in blowing up Haven. We pick up immediately after the previous episode with Jim running away and Ed coming after him. Luckily, after hiding out in an ambulance, Jim uses a defibrillator to shock Ed which fries the chip in his brain. This gives them a chance to meet with Barbara and, later, Bruce, Alfred, and Lucius in order to figure out a plan of what to do next, however, things aren’t so simple.

Where Else Have I Been Posting? | January 2019

A little bit late for this first post but something I want to do every month is to make a post that links to all of the articles that I’ve written that weren’t published here on Wonderoes. I’ll mostly be linking to pieces I’ve written about movies, TV shows, books, and similar forms of entertainment. However, some other posts may slip in from time to time.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 12: ‘Bizarrodale’ Review

After burning the drugs last week, Hermione tells Veronica and Reggie that they’re going to have to make up the money and pay back the buyer. Veronica tries to take whatever money she can from Pop’s and the Speakeasy but comes up short leading Reggie to an idea that involves stealing money from his father’s dealership. The plan almost goes perfectly (minus Reggie getting shot in the arm) until Reggie opens up the bag to reveal a dye pack that explodes all over him and the money. Regardless, they go to take what money they can to the buyer who we discover his Gladys Jones.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick | Book Review

There be MINOR spoilers.

More than a couple of years ago now, I was on holiday in a little seaside town in England when I wandered into a shop that sold novelty items and clothing. On one of the shelves sat The Invention of Hugo Cabret and it was being sold for only £4. I knew a little about it and that most people generally liked it so I bought it. I didn’t, however, read it until today which is something that I deeply regret because this book is fantastic.

Gotham Season 5 Episode 5: ‘Pena Dura’ Review

After last week’s episode, Jim takes Barbara’s lead and, along with Harvey, he goes to see the man who sold the RPG that blew up Haven but he brings out various men with weapons. They seem to be surrounded until Eduardo Dorrance (aka Bane, played by Shane West) and his team come crashing through the window and take everyone out, saving Jim and Harvey. It seems that Jim and Eduardo served together, and the latter has been sent in to help restore order to Gotham and then get help for those who need it. I have been looking forward to seeing Shane West on my screen again, especially in this, ever since it was announced and boy, it didn’t disappoint.
