Gotham” Season 1 Episode 8 “The Mask” has introduced a new villain. Read on for the full recap.

We saw Penguin stealing a brooch, and he gave it to Fish Mooney. In return, Fish took it but pinned it on Penguin’s hand. Meanwhile, it’s time for the young Bruce to go back to school. He didn’t expect to be bullied so soon when his classmate came up to him to ask about the murder of his parents. What did he do? He smashed his face with the use of his father’s watch.

Sionis Investments may look like an ordinary big company, but looks can be very deceiving because what lies behind was a shocking and twisted surprise. The owner seemed to be a frustrated samurai. He expressed this frustration through his employees by putting them in cages and letting them fight with each other. Gordon and Bullock got involved when they found a dead man that had printer toner all over his body and staples. Yes, they also use office supplies as weapons.

They got to the building, and Gordon was pushed into a fight. He was able to tackle down the bankers when the boss arrived whom they call The Mask. The boss was the only one who seems to be wearing such an expensive mask. Fortunately, Gordon was able to knock him out too.

Back at Fish Mooney, she encouraged Liza more to finish the job assigned to her, which was to kill Falcone. However, Liza had a doubtful moment. She knew that she wouldn’t be able to get out of Fish’s grasp alive so she might as well do what she’s told.
