Detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) didn't waste anytime in trying to take down Theo Galavan (James Frain) on Fox's "Gotham." Mayor James (Richard Kind) gave Gordon and his strike force the evidence they needed to arrest Theo for kidnapping and he will now set his eyes on a new target in Season 2, episode 9, titled "A Bitter Pill To Swallow."
With Theo under arrest, Gordon and Capt. Nathaniel Barnes (Michael Chiklis) will continue to try and clean up Gotham City. The synopsis says Gordon will come across a hit man that will push him to his limit. The promo video reveals Gordon will come close to crossing the line, while Barnes tells him that only the law is the line that separates men from the animals.
Two of the biggest Batman villains will finally come together in episode 9. When episode 8 came to a close, Edward Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) stumbled upon a trailer in the woods where an injured Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) had been staying since he was shot in the arm trying to kill Theo. It looks like Nygma will help the Penguin get back to good health and could also learn a thing or two about being a villain.
Nygma is almost full villain at this point after killing Ms. Kringle (Chelsea Spack) and he was planning on burying her in the woods. In an interview with the International Business Times last week, Smith said Nygma will look up to Penguin as a role model in a way, after embracing the dark side of himself.
"It'll happen conveniently for Nygma because at this point he's embraced this part of himself and he doesn't exactly know what to do, but he knows exactly who Oswald is and if there's ever someone to study or inquire about it would be Mr. Cobblepot," Smith dished.
Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) made the decision to not sign away the controlling shares of Wayne Enterprises to Theo, but when he did he decided to turn down the folder which contained the name of the person who killed his parents. When the police raided Theo's place, he threw the folder into the fire and left Bruce still without answers. Bruce will continue to question Theo in episode 9 and will try to put pressure on Theo to give him the name.
"Gotham” Season 2, episode 9, "A Bitter Pill To Swallow," will air on Fox Monday, Nov. 16, at 8 p.m. EST.
