In the fifth season, there are many strong and different events that look quite different from the previous season. The season opens with a host of drama, adventure and interesting events, as Barbara tries to prove that she is an ally of Gordon, while Bruce tries to deal with an alleged witch cause. On the other hand, Gordon and Pollock are investigating many cases of child abduction.
"Year Zero" set the tone for where Gotham is going for their final season with a bang. There's no time for small henchmen or empty threats. Gotham City is at war and the villains/heroes are here to slay.
There was plenty to digest on "Year One," but every moment of this jam-packed episode was a titillating preview of how everything will meld together before we say our final goodbye to television's greatest comic book series.
I love the show's sincere commitment to everything campy about the Caped Crusader. And there's something fully giallo about this final season, all these impeccably dressed cops in a broken city of masked horror.
