“Gotham” Season 1 brought out all of the plot twists in the last episode, but episode 8 might pull back a little bit. It seems the next installment will go back to basics—unless the vague synopsis is hiding something. Viewers will see Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) go back to school while the detectives take on a standard case. Then again, the murder cases in the city of Gotham are never standard.
After a person in Gotham is beaten to death, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) “are intrigued by the motive and take on the case,” the synopsis teases. It’s probably more than the average stabbing or gunshot wound if the men are that interested.
Bruce will finally head back to school after seemingly missing some days since his parents’ deaths. Apparently, plotting to avenge his parents’ murder isn’t enough to convince Alfred (Sean Pertwee) to homeschool him. However, Bruce won’t have the easiest time in school after running into some trouble making friends. It seems that he may even get a little violent with his classmates.
“Can you teach me how to fight?” Bruce asks Alfred in the promo video for “Gotham” Season 1 episode 8.

The trailer also shows Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) talking to Fish (Jada Pinkett Smith). He seems to want to make amends with her, but Fish isn’t really the type to forgive and forget.
“Gotham” Season 1 episode 8, titled “The Mask,” airs Monday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. EST on Fox. Do you think Fish will try to kill Penguin or will they strike a deal? Share your theories in the comments section below!
