What were your favourite scenes from this week’s DC TV shows? DC Comics News has deemed these scenes to be the best scenes on TV this week.
Maniacal Laughter – Gotham
It was the sound heard by viewers everywhere, and no doubt will it be a performance to remember.
After Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Clown Prince of Crime, it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role. Show runner Bruno Heller had said there would be a teaser of The Joker before the end of the first season. Earlier this week, Cameron Monaghan delivered a surprising, but convincing performance. Dare I say it was somewhat reminiscent of Ledger’s performance!
It’s unlikely that he’s the real deal, but I still wouldn’t want to find myself alone in a dark alley with the guy.
Gotham airs Monday nights at 8 ET/PT.
Not God, Grodd – The Flash
The reveal was nothing short of grand. It only took fourteen episodes in the making, but it was well worth the wait. As The Flash’s Harrison Wells put it, there is a whole different future in mind for Gorilla Grodd.
It started in the series’ pilot episode with a mangled cage and a name. In the twelfth episode titled “Crazy For You,” viewers got another glimpse of Grodd during the last scene as two maintenance workers strolled down into the sewers.
The Flash has quickly become notorious for twist endings and cliffhangers, but the reveal during “Fallout” left viewers with their jaws on the floor. Gorilla Grodd finally made a full appearance, unleashing all of his brutal telepathic strength onto General Eiling.
What will come of this seemingly unholy alliance between Wells, who finally revealed himself as The Reverse Flash, and Gorilla Grodd? Only time will tell.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights at 8 ET/PT.
Welcome Home, Kid – Arrow
Slade Wilson, arguably Arrow’s most iconic villain, makes his triumphant return in the episode appropriately titled, “The Return.”
“The Return” was this season’s flashback episode, and it did not disappoint. As (Executive Producer) Marc Guggenheim had promised in previous interviews, the episode did feel like a love letter to fans who’ve watched the series since the very beginning.
The episode also served as a reminder of where Oliver is in his journey to becoming Green Arrow. Of course, becoming a hero comes with sacrifices. Slade is as skilled a swordsman as he is a wordsmith, summing up the rest of the season with few words.
Arrow airs Wednesday nights at 8 ET/PT.
