Gotham Season 1 Recap: Under the Knife

The Ogre’s storyline is still not done in “Gotham” Season 1, Episode 20 “Under the Knife” and to add to that, Bruce and Selina continues their mission to find their latest lead on who wants to take down Bruce.

Gordon thought that The Ogre might be after Leslie but he was surprised that she was perfectly safe and sound. However, after finally saying the three important words to her he asked her to leave Gotham for her safety but Leslie doesn’t want to. Little did Gordon know, the Ogre actually came after Barbara and Barbara took the bait and took him back to her apartment. The Ogre was ready to kill her until Barbara assured him that she doesn’t have a boyfriend and that’s when he realized that Gordon is in love with someone else. In the end, Barbara kicked him out of her apartment.


The next day, Gordon and Bullock met up with the investigator in charge of the previous Ogre case. He doesn’t want to meddle anymore but gave them information: Ogre killed his wife but he still has a daughter and gave them a location related to one of the dead girls. They were surprised that it was a plastic surgery office.

When they got there they met up with the victim’s former boss who said that a patient recommended her to that place. He doesn’t want to give the name of the patient so they left to get a warrant. However, when they got out they noticed the Ogre in a car watching them and he almost ran them over but the Ogre managed to get away.

Back at the station, Gordon received a call from the Ogre and Gordon realized that he shouldn’t show him that he’s afraid to he held a press conference to divulge everything that he knows about him. When they finally got the warrant, they had another lead: the Van Groot mansion. They found a man hanging and when they inspected the rest of the house they found pictures of the Ogre with his face all scratched out as well as the head of the family, Constance Van Groot, who lies dead in bed.

After that they realized that the son of the butler that they found hanging is the Ogre. They took the butler in but the butler said that his son thought that he was actually Van Groot’s secret illegitimate son but when he realized it was a joke he killed her and the butler said that he hasn’t since his son back then.

The Ogre seems to have the hots for Barbara because he still caught up to her and surprisingly, Ogre took her to his apartment and Barbara found his weapon room and Barbara had a smile on her lips. Gordon also realized that the Ogre is coming after Barbara but when he got to her place she found Selina there who confirmed his suspicions that Barbara went out with the serial killer.

Meanwhile, Bruce and Selina decided to go to the Wayne Enterprises Ball to meet Bunderslaw, and they did and Selina stole a key from his pocket to copy it and get into his safe.

Penguin hired a team to kill Maroni but later on, Maroni and his crew showed up at Penguin’s club and Maroni flirted with Penguin’s mother and told him what his son has been doing. Gertrude was so mad that and walked out on her son when he tried to talk to her and Penguin was really mad that he killed the delivery guy who has flowers to Gertrude from Maroni.
