In the last episode, we get the start of the final 5 episodes of the season as a new enemy, The Red Mask, makes an appearance while Fish tries to figure out who and why is was kidnapped.

In this week’s show, titled “Everyone has a Cobblepot”, we count down to the season finale with 4 episodes left. The enemies of Gotham begin to come out while Gordon tries to save Gotham.

Alfred is up and well and him and Bruce cover for Reggie for stabbing him. Alfred wants to go and look for him but Bruce puts Alfred’s health first.

Mooney has to deal with the effects of what she did (poking her eye out). But it does lead her to meeting Dr. Dulmacher (Colm Feore, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit). She tries to make a deal but h wants nothing for it. But good news for Fish. She got her eye back. Or shall I say. An eye back.

Dent returns to tell them that Flask got off. And to add insult to injury, Flask is running for president of the GCPD. Turns out that it was Bullock that turned on Gordon and helped Flask out of jail.

Bullock tells Gordon that he was forced into the confession. Gordon continues to go against the grain as he decides to go after Loeb.

Gordon asks Dent for help to take down Loeb, risking both of their jobs. They decide to talk to Loeb’s old partner to get the files. He gives them a name Shai Lu. Turns out that Loeb is one step ahead of them but Bullock comes to their rescue.

Bullocks gets the right name. Looks like Loeb and Falcone are working together. Gordon with no other choice asks Oswald of a favor. And he strikes a deal with him. Like make a deal with the devil.

They go to a house in the middle of nowhere and we will see if Oswald is good for his word. In the attic they find that Loeb’s daughter, Miriam (Nicholle Tom, The Nanny), is there and is one French fry short of a happy meal. Looks like they found Loeb’s ‘Cobblepot’.

Gordon questions Miriam about her mother thinking that he could use this as leverage against Loeb. She says that she killed her mother because her mother was singing at the dinner when it was supposed to be her. That was awfully selfish of her mother to do that.

Gordon works his trump card to get Bullock’s file and his control over Loeb and to have Gordon be the president of the GCPD.

Meanwhile, Nygma tries again with Ms. Kristal but falls short. And just a slap in the face as her new boyfriend likes riddles too.

The show is going on a little break not returning until April 13th when the final 3 episodes will be aired.

What did you think of the show?
