Well … I have mixed feelings about this episode.
While I admit I was getting tired of Alice, that they chose this route to finish out her tale is unsatisfying to me. OK, it wraps up the Alice program, but it also provides Alice with further cause for grievance against Kate and Joshua Kane.
Kudos to the actress for making Alice sympathetic even in her malevolence.
Could Kate have trusted Alice to keep her word and leave Gotham with Mouse? Hard to say … I’m thinking it was possible, given that someone was out gunning for her, and she had made her point to her family, that once she recovered Mouse she might well have left Gotham. However, this would’ve left Alice free to plot a return, and the Kane Family would probably not rest easily knowing that she was at liberty.
Will Kate at least visit and continue her dialog with Alice? Again, hard to say. Alice’s penchant for mind games rather argues against visits; however, not to visit would be to abandon her completely fueling her grievance against the Kane. Betraying a trust is, IMHO, not something worth celebrating, and unfortunately Kate’s actions did play to Alice’s worst fear.
As for killing of the witnesses to the Lucius Fox killing, when his accused killer was released due to the suspect nature of his case, pretty much announces that the guy did not kill Lucius Fox. This isn’t clearing up loose ends, it is drawing attention back to the case. So, just how much are the Crows caught up in this conspiracy?
