Color me surprised. An interesting episode of Gotham with almost no filler? Still some tone issues, but hey, this one managed to hold my attention. Continuing with the “Rise of the Villains” storyline, let’s jump into “Knock, Knock.”
We now get a two-parter on Gotham. “The Fearsome Dr. Crane” introduces us to Gerald Crane, father of Jonathan Crane, who we know later becomes The Scarecrow. Fear is one of the episode’s themes as we see it play out for various characters and how they’re motivated by fear. Though Crane himself is a creepy man, his storyline wasn’t the most interesting part of the episode for me. Let’s meet Dr. Crane.
