Last night back in Gotham we meet the newest member of our crime fighting team, ADA Harvey Dent. He’s young, passionate about the law and hiding a secret. While he does carry around the trademark double sided coin, Harvey also seems to be hiding something. Only time will tell which side of the coin Harvey falls on.

Meanwhile, Jim is fighting to keep his only witness to the Wayne’s murder, Selina Kyle, alive. Taking her back to his apartment is short lived when he discovers his girlfriend Barbara is nowhere to be found. He realizes she wants some time and space.
