Since the beginning, Gotham Knights has moved along fairly slowly. The main storyline regards how the Knights fit in to the Court of Owls’ plans. That more or less has progressed at a snail’s pace as the Knights have uncovered tiny clues along the way. This episode picks up the speed of that connection a little bit. It’s not enough for it to stand out on its own as something spectacular, but it appears as if the seeds are starting to bloom just a little bit. It’s unclear just how well this season will land as it approaches its finale. But, hopefully, the pace at which this storyline develops will pick up, as indicated in this episode.
This week’s clue centered on a series of paintings that were owned by the Wayne family. It is unclear why the Court of Owls wants them, but the Gotham Knights tried to acquire one of them to set up a meet with the Owls. Meanwhile, Duela (Olivia Rose Keegan) and Carrie (Navia Robinson) have to deal with Talon’s elderly daughter. Carrie tries to show the woman kindness, but this backfires when she stabs Duela. Ultimately, the Knights use the woman as a bargaining ship for the Court to spare their lives during the meeting.
Gotham Knights still can’t seem to tick all the right boxes in a single episode. Some episodes have action while others focus on drama. Then there are episodes like this one that expand upon the Court of Owls storyline. But no episode has excelled at any one thing or done a whole bunch of little things right thus far. It’s been teasing the Court’s full potential as well as Harvey Dent’s (Misha Collins) descent into Two-Face. It’s unclear exactly how long these things will take and whether or not they will even happen in this season. The show is just good enough to be strung along, but if it’s to survive in this crowded space on television, it’s going to need up its game very soon.
Gotham Knights airs Tuesdays on The CW.
