Penguin's Umbrella - S1-E7

Corrected entry: Falcone meets Fish's mole for the first time and describes the aria she is singing. It's name is Vide Cor Meum. The song was produced by Patrick Cassidy and Hans Zimmer for the movie Hannibal (2001). Therefore as Gotham is set sometime in the 90's-2000's and given Falcon's age it would be impossible for him to have grown up listening to his mother singing it to him. (00:15:00)

Correction: Gotham isn't set in any specific timeframe - the creators have deliberately said that the time period is vague.

The Scarecrow - S1-E15

Corrected entry: When Bruce erects his pile of stones in the forest for his parents, one has the initials TW for Thomas Wayne, but instead of the other bearing the initials MW for Martha Wayne, it shows BW, as in Bruce Wayne. (00:23:30)


Correction: The pile of stones were not for his parents, nor was it a pile made that day. The hike was a tradition of Thomas and Bruce and during their hike they would collect a rock to add to their pile. So it's Bruce's pile and Thomas' pile. The size of the pile indicated how many times they went on the hike together. The scene is meant to convey Bruce's loneliness and loss. This is why Alfred does not go with Bruce (because it was only a hike he and his father took) and this is why after Bruce picked up the first stone, he pauses before picking up a second stone. The first stone was for his pile and he latter decides to pick up one for his father. Bruce's anger over the loss of his father is seen in his tantrum when he starts to throw the stones from the piles.


Strike Force - S2-E4

Corrected entry: When Nathaniel Barnes, the new captain of the GCPD, makes his speech, he says, "An escaped convict just strolls in here, into our house. Our house. And murders your commissioner and nine of your fellow comrades." It was Captain Essen who was killed and not the commissioner. (00:03:40)


Correction: Sarah Essen was appointed Commissioner of the GCPD after Loeb quit in the 1st episode of season 2, "Damned If You Do...". This was ultimately short-lived when she was killed by Jerome Valeska in episode 2, "Knock, Knock".


Mommy's Little Monster - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Miss Kringle's head is canted up and to the right as she lays on the gurney in the morgue refrigerator, but when Edward Nygma pulls her out, her head is facing straight up. Subsequent shots of her in the refrigerator her head is canted up and to the right.
