Spoiler-Free Review: Gotham: Episode 18: Everyone Has a Cobblepot


“I’ll do this one bad thing, and all the good things I’ll do later will make up for it. But they won’t.”

Previously on Gotham, FISH SCOOPED OUT HER OWN EYEBALL AND STOMPED ON IT and some other stuff happened I guess.

The episode opens with Alfred in the hospital, and he’s not doing so great. Fish is also in the private creepy hospital, and her eye has been replaced with a new, electric blue eye. I don’t know if that’s how eyes work – can you get an eye transplant? Jim sees a tape showing Harvey confessing to false testimony against another GPD officer. Turns out that pretty much everyone in the Gotham PD is covering up or screwing over another officer, and it’s a giant mess. Jim wants to take out the source of the corruption. Meanwhile, Fish is angling to be the creepy doctor’s right hand woman, even offering to help supply organs. That’s disappointing, considering the lengths she went to so that her own wouldn’t be harvested. I think her only motive at this point is self-preservation.

Selina visits Alfred and Bruce in the hospital, and Bruce turns down her help because he doesn’t want anyone else to get hurt. Jim, Harvey, and another cop are on a mission to figure out where a stash o’ secrets is, and the name they get is Falcone, which sends them to Club Cobblepot. This sends Jim, Harvey, and Oswald to a house where the husband and wife violently resist questioning. There’s a mystery in the attic, but not exactly the one they’re looking for…

Edward continues to tick me RIGHT OFF – his entire character is just Nice Guy who tells riddles and it’s awful.

Watch Gotham Mondays at 8pm EST on FOX. It returns next month with episodes 19, as yet to be titled.
