WARNING! WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!!
In the Gotham season finale, we pick up right where we left off in the previous episode. The GCPD is ready to raid Arkham and Bullock announces they want Jim Gordon or they are coming in. Low and behold, there’s “Jim.” Unbeknownst to the police force, it’s actually Basil a.k.a. Clayface posing as the fallen Police Detective. Satisfied, the police head out with Jim in tow.
The real Jim Gordon is still being held below the asylum in the research facility known as Indian Hill. Strange and Peabody are making the necessary arrangements to have the facility destroyed. Meanwhile, Nygma is having a little fun with Bruce and Lucius while Strange is drugging Jim to see what he knows. Much to their surprise, they know nothing about a “secret counsel” that runs Gotham, but Bruce is certainly intrigued.
While all this excitement is taking place at Arkham, the police are back at the station like nothing ever happened. “Jim” is trying his best to keep it cool and Bullock is blind as a bat to his sudden quirky behavior. But when Barbra shows up, she quickly realizes it’s definitely not Jim Gordon. She punches Basil in the face and they see why he’s called Clayface. So back to Arkham they go.
By the time they get there, Jim and Lucius are in the process of disarming the bomb that has the power to destroy half of Gotham, Fish Mooney has taken off with all the crazies, and Strange is just kinda resigned to the fact that he’s going to die. But all’s well that ends well. The bomb is disarmed, Strange is arrested, and everyone is safe. But Fish is still on the loose. After a brief police chase, she wrecks the bus and comes face to face with Penguin and his cronies. Penguin passes out when he sees that his nemesis is still alive. When he comes to, Fish is gone, his buddies are gone, and all the crazies are free.
But wait, is that Bruce!?! With long hair?? I can’t wait to see what the writers have in store for next season. I have definitely enjoyed this season though. It has been one wild ride after another. Bravo Fox, bravo!
