Review/Recap Gotham | ‘Viper’ (Season 1, #5)

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Gordon and Bullock seek out the source of a new street drug that is killing users; Cobblepot gets deeper into Maroni’s inner circle; Fish Mooney continues to plot against Falcone.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam

I absolutely love how this show creates the premise to the future, as fans know it…or knew it before the new 52. Just look at this episode where they introduced Viper, a drug that gives people super human strength but depletes their calcium levels leading them to very gruesome deaths. However, it is admitted to being a prototype produced by a subdivision of Wayne Enterprises and that the finished product is called Vemon. That made this bat-fan positively giddy.

But onto the episode. The episode featured more Alfred and Bruce who are becoming the closer, building up that dynamic to keep the Wayne Enterprise Company pure, or at least salvage what they can. Young master Bruce continues to evolve into the character that fans know and love. How awesome is that! Even more awesome is the fact that David Mazouz nails his part. That kid is incredibly talented, and it really shows in his ability to capture such a mature part with perfection.

It’s not exclusive to him though. The ensemble behind this show is amazing as a whole and bring out the edginess within the show. It’s not just the amazing writing and stories that keep the viewers glued to the screen but it’s also the amazing cast.
