Viper. Venom. Evil. It can only mean one thing; Bane. Gotham has been running through the Batman mythology, meeting early incarnations of the Dark Knight’s greatest foes and in the fifth episode of the not-superhero, superhero show, we are treated to seeing the beginnings of Bruce Wayne’s most physically matched opponent.
Before we get into that, though, we’re still dealing with the events of the last few episodes. Specifically, the shady deals made between the Arkham Asylum and Wayne Enterprises, tensions between young Bruce and loveable Alfred, and the growing feud between mob bosses Maroni and Falcone. Gotham is getting tense, and within a few scenes, it’s going to get a lot worse, and, as evil transformations always begin, a bumbling scientist is to blame.
