Episode 7
Penguin's Umbrella

It took them 7 episodes to finally produced a worthy entry to the series and one that lives up to the name of all things Batman. It wasn't perfect, but it came pretty close. It finally gave us a deeper insight into Jim Gordon and how he will stand firm and not be swayed to go to the "dark side", even with his "co-workers" basically exiling him because he won't. Loved that he would clear the precinct so that he could go one on one with the guy that is there to basically kidnap him and deliver him to Don Falcone. We also get to see exactly how Gordon affects young Bruce Wayne and that Bruce kind of looks at him as his surrogate father figure. We get to see that Alfred has some kick-ass attitude by subduing the Detective. We get to see just how manipulative Penguin is and how much glee he gets from killing those that would cross him. But the biggest thing this episode served up was the fact that Penguin and Falcone actually have a "partnership" and that he is helping Falcone take down the likes of Fish Mooney and Sal Maroni. My only gripe with the epiusode is that Falcone lets Gordon go with no strings attached. Kind of makes the "threat" that preceded it pointless.
