So Gordon (Ben McKenzie) tracked down the vile arms dealer that sold the rockets that destroyed Haven. Problem?

'Gotham': "Penguin, Our Hero" Brings the Series Scratching Back [SPOILER REVIEW]

There is a certain feeling a fan of FOX's Gotham gets when the show is firing on all cylinders–a certain giddy rush that washes over you–and "Penguin, Our Hero" is an entire hour of that feeling, with one explosive revelation after another.

'Gotham' Season 5 Episode 3 "Penguin, Our Hero" Preview: Selina Wants in on the Joke

Last week's episode of FOX's Gotham ("Trespassers") saw Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) giving Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) a great big hug for healing her shattered spine.

Gotham Season 3 Recap: Heroes Rise in a City Gone Mad (BC Rewind)

The first season of Gotham was a somewhat tame affair, part police procedural, part family drama, with the occasional hint of something dark and sinister lurking in the background.

Gotham Season 2 Recap: And The Villains Shall Rise! (BC Rewind)
