Warning! Spoilers below tonight’s episode of Gotham!

Last week on Gotham, Penguin’s (Robin Lord Taylor) new business giving out crime licenses was flourishing and even the GCPD is on board – except for Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie). Penguin wanted to unionize crime. Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) also did not like it, having run across it during a vigilante run. Tabitha (Jessica Lucas) started training Selina (Camren Bicondova). An unlicensed gang took Jonathan Crane (Charlie Tahan), and forced him to make more fear juice. Gordon used Penguin to flush out the gang and make Penguin look cowardly.

Warning! Spoilers below for the season 4 premiere of Gotham!

Last season on Gotham was just bananas, as we lost 2 (sort of 3 then 4 then 3 again) major characters. Bruce ran Alfred (David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee) through with a sword, but Ra’s al Ghul (Alexander Siddig) told him to use the Lazarus Pit to restore him. Bruce vowed to never join him. Jim (Ben McKenzie) accidentally killed Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) and she and Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) had a touching moment before she died in his arms. Penguin got the drop on Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) and froze him into an ice sculpture. Barbara killed Butch (Erin Richards, Drew Powell) and then Tabitha (Jessica Lucas) killed Barbara. Lee left Jim (Morena Baccharin) after he wouldn’t run away with her and he injected her with the cure for the Tetch virus. A masked Bruce Wayne stopped a robbery in progress.

Last week on Gotham, Penguin and Nygma (Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith) called a truce to help each other escape. Killing each other could wait. Selina (Camren Bicondova) tried to kill Bruce 2 (David Mazouz), but he knocked her out right after she told Alfred (Sean Pertwee) the truth. Then Bruce 2 knocked him out. Lee (Morena Baccharin) blamed herself for Mario’s death after a nightmare and a visit to the Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel). She stole the virus and then injected herself. The real Bruce put away his bad memories and felt nothing. Barnes (Michael Chiklis) almost killed Jim (Ben McKenzie), but he was saved by the GCPD. Jim and Bullock (Donal Logue) questioned Kathryn (Leslie Hendrix) who gave away nothing, even after Alfred put a knife through her hand. She ordered Barnes to save her so he cut off her head in response.

Last time on Gotham, Jim gave Lee (Ben McKenzie, Morena Baccharin) a really unfair last minute declaration of love, which she did not accept. Mario played with Jim, winning… until his blood test came back positive with the virus. Jim promised Falcone (John Doman) he would not kill Mario, but that promise was broken. Barbara told Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) of Penguin’s (Robin Lord Taylor) murder motive, so he went to her, Butch, and Tabitha (Erin Richards, Drew Powell, Jessica Lucas) to team up against Penguin (after apologizing for the maiming of course). Selina’s mom showed up in time to save her, Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee) from a sticky and dire situation.

Last week on Gotham, someone put out a hit on Mario (James Carpinello), and Jim (Ben McKenzie) saved him twice, but not before seeing that something was not quite right with him. Bruce (David Mazouz) found The Whisper Gang who are rebelling against the Court of Owls, and decided to join them. Nygma (Cory Michael Smith), convinced that Butch (Drew Powell) had Isabella (Chelsea Spack) killed, gave Tabitha (Jessica Lucas) an impossible choice: lose her hand or let Butch die. Butch gave a sweet speech and she sacrificed her hand. Nygma realized too late that he had the wrong guy. Barbara (Erin Richards) figured out the real culprit.

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.

Interview: ‘Gotham’ Cinematographer Crescenzo Notarile

Crescenzo Notarile Reflection Gotham

One of the most striking things about FOX’s hit series Gotham is how the scene settings are their own characters, enhancing the darkness of the story. Cinematographer Crescenzo Notarile embraced us in that darkness last season, and we certainly embraced him back. Fans are not the only ones to notice. Notarile is nominated for a Creative Arts Emmy in Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series for Episode 19’s “Azrael,” completely belonging in the stellar company of such shows as House of Cards, Homeland, and Game of Thrones.

I was lucky enough to speak to Notarile about the nomination, working with directors and actors, and some of our mutually favorite cast members.

Check out the interview and gorgeous image gallery here below.

Last week on Gotham, Dr. Strange (BD Wong) let Azrael (James Frain) loose on the city, and he went straight for Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie). Such is the power of suggestion. In the middle of Barnes (Michael Chiklis) not believing one word out of Jim’s mouth, Azrael showed up and stuck a knife in his gut. The whole city is interested in the resurrection, especially Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor). Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) figured out the puzzle of the Arkham’s patients minds, and then found the way into the secret basement lab.

Last week on Gotham, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) lost it all. Nygma (Cory Michael Smith), paranoid that Jim was onto him about Ms. Kringle, set up an elaborate crime riddle which ended with a cop dead and Jim framed, convicted, and sent to prison. He told Lee (Morena Baccharin) to forget about him. Harvey (Donal Logue) vowed to find the truth. Penguin, wandered around like a simpleton for a while, until he found his real father, who took him home. Bruce and Selina (David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova) robbed a drug den, and Bruce got his ass handed to him. They escaped and he was exhilarated.

Spoilers below.
