Bruce, Ivy, and Selina (David Mazouz, Maggie Geha, Camren Bicondova) get caught up in something quite deadly. Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) thought he knew who killed Isabella (Chelsea Spack).

Last week on Gotham, Lee’s (Morena Baccharin) engagement party ended how every single party in Gotham ends – in bloodshed. This time, it was the GCPD that was to blame. Captain Barnes (Michael Chiklis) did catch a sleazy doctor who cut off people’s faces for money, but managed to control himself and turn him in. Of course the guy was released, and that sent Barnes off, causing him to beat up and toss the guy out the window. The doctor named Barnes as the killer to Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) before he died. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) had Isabella (Chelsea Spack) killed, when he failed to break her and Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) up by scaring her off.

Last week’s Gotham, was psychedelic as Jervis Tetch (Benedict Samuel) dosed Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) with a hallucinatory drug, and the ride was as weird as expected. Barbara (Erin Richards) was his host and he visited several rooms in his mind – one of Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), one of a happy family life with Lee (Morena Baccharin), and then one with his dad, who seems alive and evil now. Ed and Isabella are in love, even after she knows the whole murdering Ms. Kringle story. Bruce and Selina (David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova) had a date. Barnes (Michael Chiklis) started losing it more because of the blood.

Last week on Gotham, Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) reveled in his victory, and was quite the public figure, until a red-hooded gang broke his mother’s statue, and threatened his rep as mayor. Tabitha and Barbara (Jessica Lucaas and Erin Richards) figured out real quick who the culprit was – Butch (Drew Powell). He was only trying to get back into Penguin’s good graces, by faking the gang and then playing hero. It almost worked, but Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) exposed the plan. Butch was arrested, but Tabitha broke him out. Penguin and Nygma share a moment. Selina (Camren Bicondova) initiated a kiss with the real Bruce (David Mazouz), totally confusing him.

Last week on Gotham, The Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel) came to town looking for his sister, Alice (Naian Gonzalez Norvind), and to kill a few people (him, not her… okay, maybe her too a litte). He hypnotized a few people for sport, but really laid a whammy on Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), causing him to want to kill himself. Alice saved him. Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee) got to know “5” a bit – he’s super strong and cannot feel pain. He also harbors the same Selina (Camren Bicondova) crush, so he gave himself a haircut and went to her, after Bruce made her sad. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) decided to run for mayor and freed Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) from Arkham. Lee (Morena Baccharin) returned to the GCPD.

Warning! Spoilers ahead for tonight’s episode.

Last week on Gotham, Bruce (David Mazouz) came to an understanding with the secret evil group who killed his parents and corrupted his company. Oh, and his doppelgänger showed up at Wayne Manor. A very different looking Ivy (Maggie Geha) crawled out of the water. She murdered the man who helped her because he neglected his plants. Bullock (Donal Logue) got kidnapped and “persuaded” to help Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) find Dr. Strange (BD Wong). The GCPD, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), and Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) with his angry mob showed up at the scene. Jim snuck in to save Harvey, promising Fish a way out. That promise had a catch. Penguin was waiting for her, but was so moved by her reasons of being unable to kill him, that he let her go.

Last week on Gotham, we caught up with all of our old friends. Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) became queen of the monsters, as the whole city hunted for her. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) made the pot sweeter by offering 1 million dollars for her capture, and then acted sweeter by proclaiming his friendship for Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) Jim Gordon’s new bounty hunter job put him right in line to capture monsters for cash. Ace reporter Valerie Vale (Jamie Chung) showed up as Jim’s next love interest, er… informant? Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee) returned home to a pissed off Selina (Camren Bicondova), and to piss off the board at Wayne Enterprises. Bruce told them that he has the goods on them. They promptly kidnapped him. One of Mooney’s goons killed Mrs. Peabody by speedy aging, and seemed to kill Ivy (Clare Foley) the same way, as she fell a long long way.
