With Cobblepot’s appearance and his declaration that Gordon never killed him, it would put Gordon in a very tight spot. “Gotham” Season 1 Episode 7 “Penguin’s Umbrella” introduced another villain and revealed to us the town’s darkness and Gordon’s fate. Read on to learn more about this episode.

Fish Mooney was very angry to learn that Cobblepot is still alive. With his existence, this also put Barbara in danger. Moreover, it was not only Mooney whom Gordon angered. Another mafia don made a move to finish him off — Falcone.

Falcone ordered Vic Zsasz, the one with the scary eyes and who keeps a tally of the people he killed on his body with the use of a knife. Zsasz is really sick, which only means that he is the kind of person that you seriously don’t want to mess with.

Gordon came face to face with Zsasz. While all of these are happening, Maroni, Mooney and other mob bosses were all plotting about Arkham, and the funny thing was that they all meet up to talk about it and even exchanged playful insults.

Gordon made his move to arrest Falcone and Mayor Aubrey James, and he got Montoya and Allen on his side as well as Bullock. As for Cobblepot, he might present himself as somewhat of a rookie in the world of Gotham, but seriously, he’s on the top of his game and has plenty of plans to take over and to get what he wants. His boss, Maroni, isn’t that stupid as well because he knows that Cobblepot is someone to look out for.
