Gotham

Barbara's most villainous moments

/ 1 March 2016

To celebrate Barbara Kean’s first #VillainOfTheWeek victory (woo!), we present to you her most despicable Gotham moments yet…

  • The time when she killed her parents. After being brainwashed by The Ogre, Barbara revealed to a horrified Leslie she had killed her mum and dad, officially marking her transition into Gotham’s dark side. On the plus side, it also meant she gained the catchy nickname, Stabby Babs. 🔪
  • The time when she tried to kill James Gordon’s new girlfriend, Leslie. OK, you don’t have to pretend to like your ex’s new squeeze but you probably shouldn’t try to kill them either.
  • That time when she escaped from Arkham Asylum (after threatening to kill Leslie again, of course.) She may have been busted out but Babs chose to go on the run with the Maniax.Gotham-S2_Ep2_15
  • The time she opted to help Theo Galavan’s gang of Arkham escapees bring terror to the streets of Gotham, instead of turning herself in. Gotham-S2_Ep2_02
  • The time when she whipped the mayor of Gotham. Luckily, Mayor Aubrey James had a metal box on his head, so he probably couldn’t see it was Babs on the other end of the whip. Was this an attempt from Barbara to shake her Stabby Babs nickname? Sadly for her, Whippy Babs doesn’t have as much of a ring to it…Untitled-2
  • The time when she took some hostages. But these weren’t just any hostages – they were decent citizens of Gotham attending a charity event. C’mon, you don’t get more villainous than that. Babs nabbed even more baddie points by also almost getting Bruce Wayne killed on the same night.

  • That time when she tried to kill James Gordon. Not only did Barbara lead Gordon and Harvey straight into the path of an oncoming truck, she then took him hostage and threatened to kill him. She also kidnapped Leslie for good measure. What’s more, she did this all wearing a wedding dress, which (although gorgeous) was a little bit creepy.
    It all ended badly for Barbara, who ended up falling from the church window 😞. Get well soon, Babs!Untitled-3
