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.
