In “Gotham” Season 1, Episode 22 “Meet the New Boss,” it’s the season finale and we have a new mob boss. Gordon discovers a secret door that will open up new mysteries next season. Leslie found out the truth about Barbara and we saw another glimpse of The Riddler, which may mean that he’s going to unleash his dark side by next season. So, to recap:

Mooney is back in Gotham while Bruce is still left obsessed to know about his father’s secrets. It was especially the reason why his dad would always lock himself away in his study for hours.

Falcone was checking on his shipments when some men tried to kill him. Leslie checked up on Barbara. She suggested that she go through trauma counseling. Barbara doesn’t want to unless Leslie is her counselor, Leslie agreed just to be able to help. She then found out that it was Barbara who actually killed her parents. Just when Barbara was about to stab her, she was able to knock her out Gordon came right on time to see that happen. Oops.

When Falcone woke up, he was strapped to a hospital gurney. He saw Penguin who confessed that he was the one behind the war because he wanted to be the mob boss of Gotham. Falcone told him that it will never happen. Penguin was enraged that he almost killed him if Gordon didn’t stop him.

Loeb arrived with Maroni’s men and ordered an attack. Gordon tried to stop the attack. Loeb still went through with it, but they didn’t succeed and escaped. When Falcone directed them to a safe building, they found out that Mooney was there along with street children and Selina. Mooney was happy to see Butch alive. She is determined to make Falcone and Penguin pay the price of what they did to Butch.

Maroni arrived and tried to get on Mooney’s good side. It was until he underbossed her and got offended so she shot him in the head. Bullock then set everyone free. Penguin and Mooney had a one-on-one fight that led to Mooney’s death.

At GCPD, Kristen asked Ngyma about the letter that he gave her from her boyfriend with his name on it. He told her that it was only a coincidence and then he had a mental breakdown, which let us into what he is to become: The Riddler.

To end this season, Gordon discovered a secret remote that led him to a hidden door leading to a cavern under the manor.
