Previously on Gotham, Liza was murdered by Falcone because of her involvement in Fish’s plan to trick him, and Jim successfully catches Jack Gruber aka Jack Buchinsky, reinstating himself. Fish was taken prisoner, and Oswald is given Fish’s nightclub. I take issue with the violent murder of Liza, as I alluded to last week, because she’s punished for being caught up in the middle of two mob bosses. She was the most innocent party in all of this.
The episode opens with a body, and is soon followed by another. They’re ostensibly by the same killer, because the weapon is an ice pick in both cases. Unfortunately, the second murder was of a witness to the first murder and happened right in the police station. There might be a murderer in the midst of the Gotham PD according to Jim, and Harvey warns him to keep that thought under wraps. Alfred and Bruce are back (FINALLY) from their trip, which is great because a) I really missed them and b) this show is Batman-related, remember?
I think it’s weird that the show seems to be pushing us to feel bad for Edward’s obsession with Kristen. He’s being a stereotypical Nice Guy, doesn’t think he’s being creepy or even showing signs of stalking, but he completely is and it’s unsettling and I hope that Kristen doesn’t end up with him. She’s made it clear in previous episodes that she’s not interested. On the other side of that coin, Bruce gets Selina a gift and she rejects it, telling him to stop harassing her. Bruce is considerably less creepy, but it’s nice to see Selina put her foot down (although it seems to be more related to her own independent streak than to her relationship with Bruce).
A SUPER BIG THING HAPPENS BUT I CAN’T TALK ABOUT IT BECAUSE SPOILERS BUT WHOAAAA.
