    That was a good scam Bruce and Cat pulled on Silver.

    If Penguin's guy was tailing Galavan, why is Penguin screaming at Jim wanting to know where Galavan went? Shouldn't Penguin's guy still be tailing him?

    It wasn't until halfway into the guy "questioning" Bruce that I realized that it was con but I wasn't sure if Bruce set it up or if Alfred did until the reveal.

    I was also kicking myself for not realizing until this episode, what the Order of Dumas was in relation to previously published Batman stories and I missed the fact that Galavan's family name was Dumas.

    Solid episode. So what did Galavan have on the former Mayor? Just threatened him and his family or something?

    My guess is the former mayor was severely traumatized by Galavan and knows that if he testifies, there's nothing stopping Galavan and his cronies from kidnapping and traumatizing him again.

    I thought it was kind of ludicrous that the case rested solely on the mayor's testimony and there wasn't any other evidence of any kind. I'd think the police would have done better investigative work than that.

    Well isn't that like any mob thing? If they get to the witness or whatnot the case falls apart

    Really liking the Bruce story line FINALLY

    Was it a trial or just a preliminary hearing to hold him over for trial? I could have sworn someone said "grand jury." You know, the type of grand jury that meets in public, has a judge presiding, with the defense cross examining witnesses, etc.

    Edit: Yep. At about 3-4 minutes, Dr. Girlfriend says that "Tomorrow, Aubrey James si going to go in front of the Grand Jury and testify that Theo Galavan kidnapped and tortured him."

    I caught that too and am assuming that it's a mistake and they really meant "Preliminary Hearing".

    Not sure if it was a writing mistake or an actor mistake.

    You KNOW better than to try to apply "actual world" reality to a fictional cesspool like Gotham. :) Maybe that was their "Grand Jury". Who knows? And moreover, who cares? :)
