Gotham Season 1 Recap: Arkham

In the lates episode of “Gotham,” "Arkham," we saw how Penguin started to be one of most powerful villains the city ever had. Read on for the full recap.

Penguin’s arrival at Gordon’s doorstep was a shocker. However, before he got killed by Gordon, he has a proposal in mind, and this was something the detective couldn’t refuse — Penguin emphasized that a war is coming to Gotham, and he can help Gordon identify who is doing what. That simply means that Penguin will feed him with information.


Maroni’s restaurant was robbed, but Penguin managed to get a hold of the money and hid it in the freezer, and this impressed Maroni and his guys. To return the favor, Maroni promoted him as the restaurant manager. Nice move, Penguin. The whole robbery thing was actually his plot to get into Maroni’s good books, and it worked.

With Penguin’s arrival, Gordon has dealt with a lot of things in this episode. First, there was a mysterious hitman who has a penchant for taking down politicians. Second, he found out that the Waynes’ plans for Arkham Asylum to help the needy. On the other hand, Maroni wants the asylum too, and so is Falcone. These people have different plans for the Arkham Asylum, but the person who actually has a good plan for it was murdered. Third, he also learned about Barbara’s past relationship with Montoya, and this upset him, and they decided to part ways for a while. Gordon was really going through a lot.

As for Bullock, he tried to slip the case, but he wasn’t able to. He went to visit Mooney again, and she gave him some information regarding the hitman, which means that Bullock owes Mooney again. We saw Bruce as well who woke up from a nightmare, and he’s now more aware of his parents plans for Arkham. He’s trying to find a connection between the Arkham plan and the murder.
