Gotham (No Spoilers!)

If you saw Gotham last night, what did you guys think of the sequence with Jim Gordon? While was "sleep," he has a dream of Barbara Keane falling from the church window, but it ends with a butterfly coming from her mouth. He then wakes up, to have a skeleton staring him in the face. The recurring theme this season has been Gordon having a "dark side," and actually wanting to die. What a not so subtle nod to Monarch Programming, and mortality by Fox.

Of course the network loves this type of blatant symbolism in its shows, including Empire, Scream Queens, and Minority Report -- amongst many others. I won't even get started on Lucifer, set to air in 2016.

Thoughts on said dream sequence, and anything else you noticed in this episode?
