Spoiler Alert! Here is a brief recap of Gotham 1.9 “Harvey Dent“!

We are introduced to Harvey Dent (Nicholas D’Agosto), and the foreshadowing of Two-Face is apparently apparent. Selina (Camren Bicondova) gives a description of the Wayne’s killer and is squirreled away at Wayne manor, much to Alfred’s (Sean Pertwee) chagrin. The case of the day is a reluctant bomber, broken out of prison to fulfill an agenda. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) finds out Fish’s (Jada Pinkett-Smith) pretty secret.

Spoiler alert! Recap of Episode 8 “The Mask” Review of Gotham Season 1, Episode 9 “Harvey Dent” to follow!

There are residual effects to the whole precinct turning their backs on Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), including the Captain (Zabryna Guevara). Jim doesn’t think he needs them. Bullock (Donal Logue) is of a different mind, when Jim goes missing after investigating a “fight club” competition for a finance job. Bullock makes an impassioned speech on Jim’s behalf. He IS the best character on the show. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) goes and makes nice with Fish (Jada Pinkett Smith) who promptly stabs his hand with his gift to her. He re-gifts to his mommy who warns, “Everyone has secrets.” The ending of the episode was really enjoyable, albeit expected. And c’mon Barbara (Erin Richards)! Give the guy a break!

Air Date: Monday, November 10, 2014, 8pm

Spoiler alert! Turn away now if you don’t want to read the Gotham 1.7 “Penguin’s Umbrella” recap or the Gotham 1.8 “The Mask” review that follows!

Poor Jim! Everybody wants him dead or jailed. Penguin’s (Robin Lord Taylor) waddle into the station revealed that Jim (Ben McKenzie) morally lied about killing Penguin. Now, Harvey (Donal Logue) wants to kill him (but comes around). Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) wants Penguin dead and Jim brought in. Falcone (John Doman) is gunning for him, and Montoya and Allen (Victoria Cartagena and Andrew Stewart-Jones) find themselves on the wrong end, but redeem themselves. Seems they just discovered that perfect hostage Barbara (Erin Richards) was right all along about Jim. But we knew that already.

Gotham’s golden rule: No heroes! And…spoiler alert!

So who was the villain du jour on last week’s Gotham? Bullock (Donal Logue) thought he killed him ten years ago. Is this “Spirit of the Goat” a copycat? Milky rising from the grave? Gotham’s firstborn one percenters are being strung up and displayed surrounded by candles in tribute. Bullock’s layers are showing. He is more and more enjoyable this week. Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) cannot stop being awkward–first by telling Bullock bad riddles and then harassing his crush. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) is comforted by his mom (Carol Kane), and seems like they would be comfortable as members of the Bates family. The best moment of the episode was Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Harvey’s old partner commiserating that Bullock always thinks he’s right. Montoya thinks she has enough to arrest Gordon. Ah, the dramatic irony! Who else LOVED the last second nose-to-nose moment of the episode?

Before we get to the Gotham 1.6 “Spirit of the Goat” review, let’s recap, shall we?

Spoilers ahead!!

Previously on Gotham: Is Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) a good guy or a bad one? He starts out with all these ideals. He didn’t have to choose Gotham, he wanted to make a difference. Poor Jim! Saddled with morally ambiguous partner, Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), Jim got more than he bargained for. He’s been hung upside-down from a meat hook, while investigating Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) parents’ murder, befriending the boy in the process. He fake killed Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), who is back causing complications galore. His girl Barbara (Erin Richards) is being warned about him by her ex-lesbian lover, Montoya (Victoria Cartagena), with whom he works. He saved future Catwoman (Camryn Bicondova) from a child trafficking ring. Jim and Harvey stop a balloon vigilante and a deadly bone-crumbling drug on the street.

Gotham 1.2 “Selina Kyle” review coming right up after these Gotham 1.1 “Pilot” messages (recap):

Major Spoilers!!

Gotham is a pre-origins story focusing on Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) battle with the many criminals of Gotham, when there were no superheroes, yet the supervillains were beginning to flourish. His blossoming friendship with young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) starts here. Jim’s first case is the murder of Bruce’s parents, a robbery gone wrong, or so it seems. Idealist Jim is saddled with crooked partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), and is forced to make questionable choices in order to keep his loved ones safe. They kill the guy that was set up as the murderer (future Poison Ivy’s dad), and almost lose their lives themselves, thanks to new villain Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Carmine Falcone (John Doman), the real power of the town. Jim bonds with Bruce and makes the lifelong secret vow (secret between them and Sean Pertwee‘s Alfred) to find the real killers.

Air Date: Monday, September 22, 2014, 8pm

DC is looking to make another mark in the television universe, with FOX reaping the eventual accolades and profit. Gotham, premiering tonight at 8pm, is an origins story that predates Batman. This story focuses on rookie detective, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), two weeks into his new position at his new precinct in the heart of Gotham City, partnered with corrupt Harvey Bullock (the always enjoyable Donal Logue). His first major case is the murder of billionaires Martha and Thomas Wayne. The only witness is their 12-year-old son, Bruce (David Mazouz), or so we think. It is there the friendship is forged, with Jim promising young Bruce that he will find the killer, much to Alfred’s (Sean Pertwee) skepticism.
