Last week on Gotham, Kathryn (Leslie Hendrix) stole Barnes (Michael Chiklis) out of Arkham for his virus blood. She charged Dr. Strange (BD Wong) with creating a version that was transmutable through the air. Jim (Ben McKenzie) was in good with the Court of Owls, tested when Kathryn wanted to infect a roomful of people. He failed the test when he got Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) to help rescue them. Ivy found Selina (Maggie Geha, Camren Bicondova) in the hospital and cured her with her special plants. Selina ran to kill Bruce 2 (David Mazouz). Kathryn set Barnes after Jim. The Court kidnapped Penguin and put him in a cage next to Nygma (Cory Michael Smith).

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.

Spoilers for tonight’s episode below.

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.

Last week on Gotham, Barbara (Erin Richards) showed up on Jim’s doorstep, claiming sanity. Jim (Ben McKenzie) ain’t buying it. He went after the assassin lady to find the name of the person who hired the hit on Bruce Wayne’s parents. Barbara showed up to help, and after faking betrayal, came through. The nickname of the person is “The Philosopher.” Jim still rejected her and she went running to Tabitha (Jessica Lucas). Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee) foundnd a Pinewood victim, whom Thomas Wayne tried to take care of after she was mutilated. She tried to help them, but was killed by Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow).

Last time on Gotham, it looked like the end for Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), but we know he can’t die – he’s Batman! Mazouz was a standout during the latter half of the season, with quite the game face. The monks almost sacrificed him, but he was saved at the last minute by Cat, Alfred, Jim, Bullock (Camren Bicondova, Sean Pertwee, Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue), especially Bullock with the late wheezing stair climb, and the GCPD. Silver redeemed herself (kinda) at the last minute. The fall finale was chock full of people trying to escape, but alas, for Theo Galavan (James Frain), Jim was the one who put an end to him.

Beware! Spoilers below.

Last week on Gotham, Jim (Ben McKenzie) got booted off the force for nothing, by crooked commisioner Loeb (Peter Scolari). He goes to Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), who seems to already know what he wants. But what Penguin wants in return might be too high a price to pay. He visits Bullock (Donal Logue), who is bartending and very wise, spouting it as a blessing in disguise. Then he goes to Bruce (David Mazouz) because he can’t keep his promise, and Bruce kinda tells him that it’s okay to do something bad for the greater good. So Jim does that favor, gets back his badge, and Loeb steps down. Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) is losing it, talking to his evil self in the mirror. Theo and Tabitha Galavan (James Frain and Jessica Lucas) break into Arkham, and bust out some of the most wanted, including Barbara (Erin Richards) and Jerome (Cameron Monoghan). Theo has big plans for them and for Gotham.

It’s finally back! Before we get to this week’s review, let’s recap how we got here on Gotham.

It has been a banner first season for Bruno Heller‘s hit Gotham. This Batman prequel series has brought us a myriad of characters from the DC universe as well as a major one invented just for the show. Focusing on how everyman Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) shakes up the GCPD and tries to clean up the city, we have seen how everyone and everything is not black and white, but many shades of gray, including the setting. He and his reluctant partner, Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) use regular and unorthodox methods to try to bring down the bad guys, including the ones with badges. From Penguin to Riddler to Catwoman to The Joker (Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith, Camren Bicondova, Cameron Monoghan), from Poison Ivy to The Ogre to The Dollmaker To Two-Face (Clare Foley, Milo Ventimiglia, Colm Feore, Nicholas D’Agosto), we have been delightfully inundated with future Batman villains. We even got a brand new villain this season in Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), a powerfully vicious, yet loyal woman who will pluck out her own eye and stomp on it, rather than be controlled. And of course we have young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), whose parents were murdered to kick off the season, leaving him in the care of his more-than-meets-the-eye butler, Alfred (Sean Pertwee).

What you missed on Gotham 1.14 “The Fearsome Dr. Crane”: Spoilers and wait! Why did you miss it? It sets up this week’s episode!

Besides Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) outing Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) to Maroni (David Zayas); Penguin almost turning into a sedan sandwich; and Bruce (David Mazouz) basically telling Jim (Ben McKenzie) that he sucks, Jim and Harvey (Donal Logue) failed to catch Dr. Crane. Dr. Crane’s super-fun murder spree involves scaring the shit out of his victims as the method of murder, before stealing their adrenal glands. Well…at least Harvey saved the girl.
