After a few episodes that were less than stellar (turning Captain Barnes into Judge Dredd? Not their finest hour!), Gotham (Mondays, 8/7C) is back on track with an episode that culminates in a couple of big surprises.

Despite one of tonight’s plot arcs on Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) being a goof, Mad City: Executioner manages to survive with lively Penguin/Nygma and Ivy/Bruce/Selina arcs.

After a poignant momentary glance at Lee, the third season premiere of Gotham, Mad City: Better To Reign In Hell, finds Jim Gordon back in Gotham, thwarting the robbery of a pharmacy by a giant who looks to be part stegosaurus.

The monsters are making things tough for police. Not making their image better is Gordon’s successful work as a bounty hunter. And then there’s the inquiring mind of Gotham Gazette reporter Valerie Vale…

The second season finale of Gotham – Wrath of the Villains: Transference – flirts heavily with going off the rails, but hangs on to provide a potentially catastrophic cliffhanger in which none of the usual suspects are actually at risk.

Oh, no. This time it’s Gotham as a whole that’s in trouble.

As Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) steams toward the end of its second season, it has not fallen into bad comics goofiness like it did last year. Instead, it’s gotten darker and more twisted – we’ve even caught a glimpse of Killer Croc (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) in the dying moments of last week’s ep (just before Firefly’s attempted fricassee of Selina Kyle.

Wrath of the Villains: A Legion of Horribles picks up right where it left off and carries on to a staggering cliffhanger that will lead into next week’s season finale with style (if not grace).

Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) returns with a bang this week as Edward Nygma inspires Dr. Hugo Strange with a way to bring the recently resurrected Theo Galavan out of chaotic madness to serve his own purposes.

Meanwhile, Nygma makes Jim Gordon an ominous promise and Captain Barnes discovers that his ‘by the book’ methodology doesn’t always work.

Now that Bruce Wayne has the name of his parents’ killer, and a gun, it’s time for him to seek out the infamous Matches Malone. It’ll take an audience with God (kind of), but the meeting is now inevitable.

Meanwhile, Oswald T. Cobblepot has a little more therapy to face and Edward Nygma learns that Jim Gordon is looking into Kristin Kringle’s whereabouts and leaps to a completely unfounded suspicion.

The second half the second season of Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) is well underway with new villains Hugo Strange and Victor Fries getting a significant amount of screentime – and Bruce Wayne returning from Switzerland.

A Dead Man Feels No Cold might sound like a Ross MacDonald novel (or a Stan Lee comic), but it’s very much a DC Comics tale dealing with life, love, torture (in the name of mental health) and death.

Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) returns with our first real look at Victor Fries aka Mr. Freeze. Also Oswald T. Cobblepot is insane – and a certain hot young villainess returns to Gotham’s underworld.

Mr. Freeze opens on Jim Gordon’s hearing vis-à-vis the events of the fall finale, with Gordon answering questions from Assistant DA Harvey Dent (Nicholas D’Agosto) – including the death of Theo Galavan; we meet the new king of Gotham’s underworld – Butch (?)(Drew Powell) – as he receives a visit from Tabitha Galavan (Jessica Lucas), and a cop on her beat has a chilling encounter. And that’s just the teaser!
