I’ve said it before and it needs to be said again. Theo Galavan is one wicked sonuva buck. He will stop at nothing and use anyone to get his revenge against the Wayne family for banishing his family name, Dumas, from existence. First he systematically destroys Wayne Enterprises owned establishments and now he looking for a way to squeeze himself into a cushy spot in Wayne Enterprises by winning over Bruce Wayne. And let’s not forgot about his “run” for mayor and his canned supporters. He has roped both Gordon and Bruce into supporting him along with a city councilman (with some very invasive persuasion). Theo is so careful it’s scary. It didn’t take long for him to sniff out Butch’s ruse of him defecting from Penguin. He is proving to be a very formidable opponent for everyone and what’s better is that he hiding in plain sight with no one being the wiser. Theo Galavan has truly played this stinkin’ city like a harp from hell.
