“Into the Woods” isn’t that compelling of an episode with Jim confronting Nygma in his attempts to clear his name, but it did have a few tense moments. Meanwhile, Penguin gets his mean streak back and Bruce Wayne tires of life on the streets. Why? Because the plot and writing demand it.
It’s the Gotham crossover with Shawshank Redemption that you always wanted as Jim Gordon serves his sentence. Not a bad episode, this was, but it felt a bit on the rushed side. Jim’s situation should have lasted longer than it did since he is guilty of killing Galavan, but looks like the plot demands he be released so he can track down whoever framed him. Also, Oswald and Elijah bond.
