Shadows of Bats

Did anyone catch the “Shadow” references in last nights episode of Gotham?

First there was the cop who was killed. His name was Cranston. Then the name Lamon or was it Lamond got mentioned a couple of times. Lamont Cranston was one of the Shadow’s aliases.

Second, the Balloon man was dressed up as the Shadow when he killed Cranston.

There are probably others as well.

The balloons (in my opinion) were a Tim Burton/Jack Nicholson reference to the Joker. Think “200 Balloons” the song by Prince. The mask the balloon man was wearing was more likely a reference to Heath Ledger’s Joker.
