By Brandon Escala,

Hello again to all you Gothamites, I am back with my weekly review of FOX’s TV series, Gotham. This week’s episode was not focused on any one character. Instead it was turned to why Gotham will always need and have vigilantes when a cop starts killing people with weather balloons. The common denominator between his targets? They were all in positions of power and were all crooked. His victims were a philanthropist, and cop, and even a priest. When asked who his final target was he said, “It doesn’t matter.” Gordon found that the people don’t have faith in the legal system, that crooked cops and priests were always protected, and the weak and innocent were preyed upon; that the legal system is broken. “That’s when you get vigilantes,” said Gordon. We also get the information that Selina has on the Wayne murders, that she can see in the dark and saw the killer’s face before he pulled up his scarf. When she says that the wallet she dumped from a pick pocketing earlier is in the sewer. Gordon handcuffs her to a fire escape and goes down into the sewer to investigate, but Selina picks the lock with a pen she stole from the police station. We also see the Penguin working at an Italian restaurant owned by the Marone crime family under the name Paulo. There he learns that Marone plans to take down Carmine Falcone. Penguin soon makes friends with Marone and learns that he also plans to reopen Arkham Asylum, a mental institute for the criminally insane, that will one day house Batman’s rouges gallery, including Poison Ivy, the Joker, Harley Quinn, etc. That’s it for this week’s synopsis – tune in next Monday for a new episode of Gotham on FOX.
