Fox’s Gotham season four episode nine found Professor Pyg serving up meat pies made of human flesh to the Penguin, Sofia Falcone, and their dinner guests. Just when it appeared as though a young boy was about to slaughtered, recently promoted Captain James Gordon came to the rescue and saved Penguin and his guests. He also managed to take Professor Pyg into custody.
Episode nine also moved Bruce Wayne’s storyline forward a little. Bruce is not dealing well with the fact he killed Ra’s al Ghul and is pouring his energy into partying. Alfred’s concern for his young charge led him to taking Bruce on a trip similar to the ones Bruce’s dad took Bruce on as a child. Bruce, however, wasn’t into the camping trip at all and tricked Alfred, leaving him in the woods while he returned to Wayne Manor for more hijinks.
After taking a break for the Thanksgiving holiday, Gotham returns on November 30, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT with season four episode 10. The guest cast for episode 10 titled “A Dark Knight: Things That Go Boom” includes Michael Cerveris as Professor Pyg, Anthony Carrigan as Zsasz, Stu Large Riley as Sampson, and Christopher Convery as Martin.
