Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Adolescent Bruce Wayne sees his doting parents shot by a mugger. Sleezy murder squad lieutenant Harvey Bullock fails to dump the case on organized crime because of eager 'rookie' James Gordon but changes his mind when they offer to take it on anyhow. The stole pearl string is found is petty robber Mario Pepper's home, but they soon suspect the mugging to be staged and the trail leads to local mob head Fish Mooney, from Carmine Falcone's 'family'. The whole affair is clouded by the devious power struggle within the mob, which proves dangerous for the detectives too. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Toward the end, Harvey drives Gordon to an abandoned wharf. The building in the background is the same one shown at the beginning of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Post-Mortem Blues (2014). Donal Logue, who plays Harvey Bullock, also played Lieutenant Declan Murphy in that same L&O episode, at that same building. Almost identical shots of the building were shown as well. See more »


At the beginning of the episode, the girl steals a half gallon of milk. She pours some milk into a pan she pulls from a trash can and then sets the milk container down. There is only a couple of ounces still in the milk jug and she only poured a couple ounces into the pan. Where did the rest go? See more »

A Good Start
26 September 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

To be honest I want to give 7.5 Pilot was good enough to make audience to look forward to this new series. It doesn't try too much to impress audience which is nice. Good to see that this show is not cheesy or kiddish. Its somewhere between being serious and entertainment which is best for the Batman's story. Acting is done well by all the actors. Dialogues are good too. The show borrows some element from Nolan's Batman Begins to a certain level, which is a good thing. Hope DC continues their good work on Television and create more shows. By the way, All characters are introduced well to begin a good show. Can't wait for some new episodes.
