The population of Gotham loses confidence in the CAPD when the city begins to collapse.
Would it be Gotham if the GCPD wasn’t a city error? Devastation shortly after last week’s explosion. Nobody seems to trust each other, but at least most of the main characters know they have to find the real culprit. For most of the episode Jim was nowhere to be seen and he was surrounded by Barbara and the penguin.
When honor and justice are at stake without inspiring a small group of GCPD survivors, Jim continues to worry about his city. He orders Lucius to do everything he can to find the source of the bomb. Meanwhile a penguin shows up with boxes full of rifles, which he wants to give to the police. Jim knows his help will be conditional, but the stakes are too high.
Thanks to Barbara’s tip, the search team is on the street looking for a new suspect. Who will they find? It’s Victor Tsass! Turns out he survived death and was hiding in the city. He shoots the group several times and manages to shoot the penguin. If Barbara could set aside her revenge for the greater good, so would Oswald. But Jim is able to surprise Tsash and bring him back to the station for questioning.

But it turns out Zsash didn’t bomb the building! Lucius put Nigma in charge of the investigation after Ed entered the station. He’s looking for a certain prisoner and agrees to help him in exchange for a file. Although when Ed tries to tear the file out of Lucius’ hands, the result is a funny Gotham humor. But Ed found out there weren’t any bombs in Haven. Instead, someone across the street must have pulled oil off the roof. Since witnesses identify Tsasha as the man who left Haven, it means he couldn’t have done it.
Despite the fact that Jim Zsasch has officially ruled out Zsasch as a suspect, Oswald still wants revenge. He’s using violence to get Tsash out of the building for a public trial. In fact it is an excuse for the penguin to stick posters on himself and behave like a prosecutor. He gathers people with Tsash’s crimes to convince them of his guilt. Jim begs just as passionately for mercy for an innocent man, because murder is not justice. Unfortunately, the people of Gotham want a scapegoat, which means it’s time to take out the guillotine. Yes, Gotham City officially became France at the end of the 18th century.
Despite the fact that he may have lost an audience, Jim and Harvey have caught Tzash to keep him safe. Because they can’t hide it, they decide it’s best to let them go. It also makes sense from a strategic point of view. Zsash may be an assassin, but he can be a valuable ally when the city starts a full-scale war. Again the penguin gives his emotions free rein instead of playing a long game.

Then who blew up Haven? Turns out Ed was the real culprit in the attacks! When Nigma and Lucius find the roof from which the shot was fired, they are the first to notice the open window across the street. Turns out the old lady who saw the whole thing lives there. Ed’s gonna see if the apartment number matches the prisoner he was looking for. A woman hit Ed on the head and suddenly remembered he’d attacked Haven. Shocked by what he has done, Nigma throws them out the window and probably runs to a shelter.
On the other side of town, Alfred posted Bruce’s bail. Apparently Selina left him handcuffed all night and was forced to defend herself against some of Jeremiah’s criminals. Although Alfred thinks it’s too late to save Selina, he’s not ready to give up now. These two people paved the way for Jeremiah’s situation in the underground mines. Yeah, turns out that weird gang from earlier this season that used a child slave actually works for Jeremiah.
Selina’s already found the clown as the criminal prince. We assume she kills Echo and takes off her costume to get close enough to him. You can’t surprise Jeremiah often, but he looks really shocked when Selina starts beating him. Luckily (for Jeremiah) Bruce comes at the right moment to take Selina out and keep her safe. Although we didn’t believe for a second that Jeremiah was dead, it was a little shocking to see that Selina actually kept her promise.

Jim doesn’t think he has anything to lose if the city starts to fall apart. He has officially lost his faith and even turned off his headlights to ask for help. Even a mysterious woman with a radio seems to have nothing to worry about. Barbara shows up at his office when he drowns his sorrows in alcohol. Although he is not here to rejoice at his failure, but to give it a new direction.
But Jim wants to spend the night walking. Barbara looks him in the eye and laughs at him like a man resting on his shoulders. Again, Jim orders Barbara to leave before he takes her away. Gotham ends this week with two passionate cuddles and gives us hope for Baby Batgirl! Can she come at the end of this season?
