“I’m not peaceful. Nor do I surrender.”
Admittedly, when it came to movies we could possibly see in the DCEU, I have to say Black Adam never so much as entered my mind. While not necessarily the best movie to come out of this franchise, it’s far from the worst.
That being said, Black Adam follows Teth-Adam aka Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) who is awoken almost 5000 years after he received the powers of the Egyptian gods. There are definitely tie-ins with other DCEU titles but you could get away without having seen any of them in order to watch this one.

While there is one more episode after this one, this really was the finale to the show we’ve been watching these past few years. It closed up everything we’ve been experiencing while episode 12 is more of a flash forward to show us what life is like in Gotham 10 years into the future.
I actually put off watching these final 2 episodes because I couldn’t bring myself around to do it, however, now that I’ve seen them I have to say that episode 11 was a really simple but great way to finish up the story of Gotham. There wasn’t too much going on and the episode didn’t feel like it jumped around as much as they usually do. It meant that none of it felt particularly rushed or overdone.

This episode of Gotham finally introduces us to Bane and gives us Walker’s true motives and real identity. The last we saw of Eduardo, he had been found by Walker and was being treated by Hugo Strange. With his mask on, we got a very small glimpse into Bane but it wasn’t until now that we finally saw him in action.
Things are finally looking up for Gotham which is exactly why it’s no surprise that things went downhill so quickly. The river is now safe and a call is made for the bridges to be rebuilt, allowing for the island to be reunited with the mainland. Not only that, but Jim got some extra good news when he finds out that Barbara has gone into labour but it’s all interrupted when Bane shows up.

This episode of Gotham focuses almost entirely on Jim Gordon. Everything is either directly or indirectly connected to him. We discover that there has been a time jump between this episode and the last. Work has been done to make the rivers clear of toxins and according to Lucius, they’re closer to safety levels than they originally planned. Jim wants to, in the meantime, get a cease-fire with all of the different gangs/territories which doesn’t go well at all.

This new episode of Gotham sees the return of Harvey’s old partner, Dix. When we first see him, he’s no longer in a wheelchair as he shows up to Sirens to talk to two retired cops, Boggs and Lewis, who worked around the same time he did. He asks if they ever think about what they all did to the girl and once Dix leaves the two end up dead on the floor.
