The episode of Gotham TV series this time was about the red hood, and when I read the analytics they were kind of like; how many masks. Bruce Wayne didn’t see the mask, but only James Gordon and his corrupt partner did. Masks are a form of ego and I noticed as critics didn’t but probably meant was the ego that turns people around is when they take on a mask of some sort, it happens to anyone, the mask or hood is metaphorically speaking and means we can hide the person we don’t like and we can show the person we want, but according to the world of psychiatry, the mask is behind many diagnoses.
We see some joking in the beginning about the red hood and I thought the red hood was some kind of a superhero unshootable etc. but I was wrong, instead the hood indicated an alter ego as we might see in the future of Gotham, we should hold in mind the series is actually about James Gordon before we even knew Batman, so I believe I should be focusing on that. The hood in the episode should have been taken like a hero, that is also one of my views, because the first robbery we see then the person who wears the mask, takes the money and draws attention by throwing up money for the people in the street.
Then we are going for the Robin Hood category as he stole from the rich and gave to the poor, I somehow agree with that, but not all way when I start to think, and I mean think. One thing there is to take from the rich and give to the poor, but their mindset won’t change at all, so I am convinced to mention it, that Robin Hood was created from revenge, envy, maybe resentment, so that is really what it stands for. The hood is to make people feel convinced they can act another way, an alter ego.
