Gotham Season 3 Episode 9 “Mad City: The Executioner” :- Watch Gotham Season 3 Episode 9 “Mad City: The Executioner” on Youtube on Fire, Barnes fully embraced his dark side on Gotham Season 3 Episode 9, but made the mistake of inviting Jim in on his little secret. Meanwhile Penguin learned the truth about Isabella and Ivy retintroduced herself to Bruce and Selina. Well, that was one crazy hour. While I loved every minute of it, I was also a bit disappointed – mostly in the Barnes story. Did we really have to lose Big Bad Barnes so soon? It wasn’t surprising that he was going to look to Jim to be his partner. It was obvious that was going to be the case from how Gotham Season 3 Episode 8 ended. I think Barnes was hoping to tap into Jim’s dark side. What he didn’t realize was that Jim’s already scraped the bottom of that well and that well is dry. There is no more dark side for Jim. Not after his little Mad Hatter trip. Not after he talked to his dad. His hero. Jim is all about being the good cop he was meant to be. There’s no more going down for this guy. The fact that he admitted to killing Galavan without the least bit of hesitation proves this point. I almost fell out of my chair when Jim admitted to it so matter-of-factly. He had been in denial for so long, acting all high and mighty, letting Penguin take the heat for the crime he committed. I never thought it would be resolved, but it was, and it was done in a very satisfactory manner. No excuses from Jim. Just facts. He talked about everything he lost and it was believable. He didn’t try to pull a “woe is me” act, and that made his confession even better. He finally took responsibility for his actions. Barnes always thought Jim was the one who pulled the trigger, so it was no surprise when he called Jim out on it. I was just surprised that Barnes didn’t put Jim on “trial” for it. Instead, Barnes wanted to use it as a way to convince Jim to join him in his quest. If Jim could cross the line then, why not now? It makes sense, right? But Jim is a changed man. The minute he walked into the GCPD and took his old job back, he became someone new. It’s interesting to think that he could have become Barnes. Barnes is what Jim could have become in an alternate universe. After all, he sort of went down that road when he was a bounty hunter, right? He could do what he wanted when he wanted and how he wanted.
