In the last episode, a new foe, seemingly the Mad Hatter but he calls himself the Magic Man, as he arrives in Gotham and begins his reign of terror in Gotham. He has an obsession with his sister named Alice, who is seemingly missing in his life. Meanwhile, Lee returns which will create problems for Gordon and Bruce tries to figure out what’s going on with his clone. Penguin makes a big move to gain control of not only Gotham but also his competition, James. Magic Man makes his move and shows his darkness but Alice foils his plan. This clone Bruce makes a move with Selina and we will get to see what it is that he wants.
In this week’s episode, titled ‘Anything for You, Gordon searches for Jarvis/Magic Man but it proves that he’s not the easiest man to take down. As that happens, Penguin continues to try and figure out how he can become the mayor and proves that he won’t stop at nothing until he gets what he wants.
Jarvis is making a new plan to find and capture Alice again. He is using an old amusement park as his trap. He enlists the help of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum (yes this only confirms that this man is the Mad Hatter) to help break out Alice from the GCPD.
Gordon uses Alice to try and find him before he is able to cause more harm. Thompkins uses her own tactics to try and understand Alice and get information on Jervis. This is going to prove harder considering the fact that Jarvis can control him even when he’s not near him. He goes to an unlikely old face to get help. Barbara is all too willing to help him out.
Finally, Gordon and Thompkins have that heart to heart that they’ve needed to have. Gordon admits that it hurt that she moved on before Lee finally tells him what an ass he was to her. Maybe we can get somewhere from here.
With Jarvis finally having control of Alice, he starts draining her blood so that he can use her powers to make more monsters for him. Of course Gordon the party crasher the he is interrupts them and is able to finally break the spell. But it comes at a cost as Alice gets killed.
It’s election day for Penguin. He is focused on winning the title while Butch and Nygma butt heads. Looks like something is going on with Butch and he doesn’t like the fact that Nygma doesn’t trust him. Gonna be a battle of heads between them as they try and fight it out with only one of them coming out on top. Nygma tries to get Penguin to call Butch off from paying off the voters but Penguin doesn’t want to risk it. It all doesn’t matter as Nygma takes it upon himself and shows Penguin that the people of Gotham really love him. But now that has Nygma has Penguin’s number two and Butch at the bottom.
Meanwhile, Bruce goes looking for Rolls (his clone) and figures out that he is with Selina. With her, they do some of her work, such as robbing a betting hall. Rolls takes out the men who try and hurt Selina and she begins to suspect that maybe she likes this ‘new’ Bruce. That is until she figures out who he is. She instead embraces him because he feels the same way about life as she does. Something happens between them and Rolls leaves Gotham with some kind of plan of his own.
In the next episode, Butch tries to get his revenge on Nygma and Penguin while Penguin adjusts to life as the new mayor of Gotham.
