‘Gotham’ Burns And ‘Supergirl’ Resists On This Week’s Geeky TV

Last week on Gotham, Bruce started learning to beat ass, Bruce’s evil twin killed Selina (OR DID HE? He probably did not!), Penguin recruited more supervillains, and Gordon compromised his morals even further as he joined the surprisingly ineffectual secret conspiracy controlling Gotham City. So of course this week sees the return of Nathaniel Barnes, aka the Executioner, the super-strong and super-judgy former cop turned homicidal vigilante, because Gotham never has enough plates spinning. Also, it appears we will learn more about Bruce being trapped in the Himilayas, and possibly Alfred will get to deck another child. We’ll find out tonight at 8pm EST on Fox. Meanwhile, in an alternate reality where Batman never shows up either…

Supergirl is in the grip of a full-on alien invasion, mostly because Rhea (Teri Hatcher) can’t get over her son rejecting the Daxamite way of life in favor of a Kryptonian. Which means that Supergirl and the DEO will have to hold their noses and work alongside Cadmus, which is kind of uncomfortable for everybody since Lillian Luthor is pretty much just as racist as Rhea, so maybe they can both be thrown in the Phantom Zone. We’ll see tonight, also at 8pm on the CW. Join us, won’t you?
