HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on Fox
All hail Cameron Monaghan, whose delirious guest-star performance(s) as various Joker-ian baddies was the lingering darkness on the edge of Gotham’s town. Monaghan returns madder than ever for the prequel’s final hour, which leaps forward a decade to a new dawn of caped crusades. It’s an occasionally awkward wrap-up, an epilogue-prologue origin that makes debatable decisions with the main ensemble. But it’s also one last cheerful showcase for the performers’ delirious energy. At one point, mobster–turned–mayor–turned–warlord–turned– submarine manufacturer Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) asks to borrow someone’s jacket and hat. He’s trying to sneak away from the cops, see, and he does not say he needs the clothes “now,” but rather “NAAAAAAOOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!!” In a dour decade of grim dark knights, this was Holy Camp, Batman. B — Darren Franich.
