So, you've already watched Gotham's second episode - and, true fan that you are, you've already pored over all of its Easter egg-filled awesomeness (and if you still want more, check out our list right here). But there's one thing you just don't get, am I right?

What the hell was this doing in there?

I mean, look at it. Being all quizzical...
I mean, look at it. Being all quizzical...

A Queen Consolidated logo? As in, Arrow's Oliver Queen's company Queen Consolidated? Seriously?

I mean, that's awesome, but it's not like that's a crossover or anything, right? I mean, Gotham's most recent episode wasn't concerned with supervillains like those in Arrow. It was all about two sinister agents working for a guy called The Dollmaker, who used drugs to incapacitate children, before abducting them for a mysterious and unexplained purpose...

"Hi kids..."
"Hi kids..."

...wait a minute...

...The Dollmaker? As in, Barton Mathis? As in, the guy who showed up in Arrow's second season, using a paralytic drug to enable him to turn his victims into dolls?Just like his (conveniently a grown adult at the time of the earlier-set Gotham) father before him?

Y'know, this guy...
Y'know, this guy...

So...wait...

...that means...

...Gotham and Arrow are totally set in the same universe now, right?

I mean, I know Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller's been teasing the possibility of a crossover between the shows in the future, but was anybody expecting that in episode 2?

Riddle me that, RIDDLER.
Riddle me that, RIDDLER.

Could DC really be contemplating a consolidated universe spread over multiple networks? We'll likely soon find out - if you see Jim Gordon beating the crap out of/killing the Dollmaker at some point, only to then be introduced to his weird kid Barton (who's promptly shipped off to foster care), don't be too surprised.

After all, that's exactly how it went down in the comics...

C'mon [Gotham](series:1127075), make it happen!

What do you guys think? Are Gotham and Arrow set to crossover?
