Gotham Season 3 Episode 7 “Mad City: Red Queen” :- Watch Gotham Season 3 Episode 7 “Mad City: Red Queen” on Youtube on Fire, Oh, Gotham. Did you really have to backtrack on so many of the bold choices you have made so far this season? There’s still a lot to like about the super trippy Red Queen, but it’s tough to see the show bring Jim back to the G.C.P.D. after his time as a freelance bounty hunter has proved so lucrative, backtrack on its bold decision to have Jim choose Vale over Lee, and go all-in with its Vertigo-themed sidelining of the Ed/Oswald relationship. I’m not usually a fan of dreams/hallucinations/etc. in stories. Most of that time, they are lazy plot devices for explaining a character’s internal processes. Gotham doesn’t completely side-step that narrative trap, but Barbara’s exasperated yet delighted position as Jim’s shepherd through his subconscious makes up for any laziness this particular trope delivers. What do we learn from Jim’s Red Queen trip? Basically, he wants to get married and have lots of kids with Lee. Which is… fine, but weren’t we having so much more fun when Jim was reinventing himself as someone other than the self-righteous sad sack of a police officer who put more energy into judging criminals than catching them? Okay, maybe that’s harsh, but I am bitter that Gotham gave me a taste of what a fun, subversive, confused, and relatable Jim Gordon could look like, only to snatch him away at the first psychedelic drug trip.
