In the last episode, Mr. Freeze tries to break out Nora so he can save her, while Hugo Strange begins his experiments on Penguin. He is able to ‘cure’ him by the end of the show and released him back into Gotham. Bruce finally confronts the person who killed his parents but doesn’t have it in him to pull the trigger. He does however decide it’s now time to live on the streets and learn how the other side lives. In this week’s episode, ‘Mad Grey Dawn’, Gordon is back under the microscope as Barnes reopens Galavant’s murder. Meanwhile, Nygma begins placing his riddles for Gordon to figure out.
Nygma begins his work as The Riddler and starts to perform his tricks on the world. It starts with stealing an art piece and leaving a giant green question mark in its place. Gordon continues to follow his trail none aware of the fact that he is helping Nygma along the way.
Gordon finds himself in deep water again as Barnes begins his investigation on Galavant’s murder. Obviously Thompkins is less than enthusiastic about this and is angry that she is caught in the middle. Gordon is now going to have to make that tough decision on if he will make it worse or come clean. Nygma throws a big wrench into Gordon’s plan as he frames Gordon for Pigme’s murder. It was the plan. To get Gordon out of the way so that he doesn’t figure out about Kristen. He will spend life in jail.
Penguin is now out of Arkham and goes to Butch and Tabitha. Instead of getting their revenge, he lets Penguin go. Penguin continues on his journey of self-discovery when he finds something unexpected. His father.
The streets is not as tough as we thought it would be for Bruce, including Selina. She gets him into some trouble, though not on purpose, and finds that she’s not sure if he belongs there. She sees that he enjoys the pain that comes from the rough life. Maybe a little bit too much. As the show comes to an end, Barbara wakes from her coma, Gordon gets sentenced to life in jail and he tells Thompkins to leave him behind. Bullock is going to work on getting him out and the question will be how he does and what will happen when he does.
One big thing to come out this week’s episode is the sneak peek at Batman V. Superman. In the clip, we see where the war began between the two and ultimately the scenes make a fight for why you should be Team Batman. He is trying to save the world from the war that Superman brought to it.
In the next episode, it looks like Penguin is in the middle of a crazy family wanting to kill each other while Gordon adjusts to life in prison.
