Fox’s Gotham season five episode six had so many twists it was difficult to keep track of them all. Among the key events that went down in the pivotal episode were the pairing of Selina and Oswald, the return of Lee, the fact Lee also had a chip in her head which caused her to want to kill Jim Gordon, Ed Nygma pretending his chip was still working when it wasn’t, and the revelation that Barbara is pregnant! She broke the news about her impending bundle of joy while Jim and Lee were busy playing catch-up.
Jerome is, obviously, still alive and he’s captured Alfred. Plus, the episode saw the origin story of Bane play out after Eduardo Dorrance barely survived a fight with his former friend, Jim.
Up next, season five episode seven titled “Ace Chemicals.” Episode seven will air on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT.
The cast of the comic book-inspired series’ final season is led by Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon. Donal Logue is Detective Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee is Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor is Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, and Erin Richards is Barbara Kean. David Mazouz plays Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova is Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith is Edward Nygma/The Riddler, and Chris Chalk plays Lucius Fox.
The “Ace Chemicals” Plot: Gordon races to uncover the criminal element threatening to end talks of Gotham’s reunification with the mainland. A very much alive Jeremiah (guest star Cameron Monaghan) returns and organizes a twisted recreation of the murder of Bruce’s parents with the help of Jervis Tetch aka Mad Hatter (guest star Benedict Samuel) in the all-new “Ace Chemicals” episode.
