Season 4 Recap: Bruce Wayne is a masked vigilante, patrolling Gotham’s streets at night. Cobblepot begins a campaign to dominate the city’s underworld by profiting off licensed crime, Nygma finds his mental faculties diminished as a side-effect of having been flash-frozen, Jonathan Crane is seen embracing his role as the Scarecrow, the League of Shadows begin their next plot involving an ancient embalming knife, Ivy Pepper taking drugs from an apothecary which transform her again, and Butch Gilzean becomes Solomon Grundy after his comatose body was dumped into Slaughter Swamp. A new criminal known as Professor Pyg shows up putting Gotham into chaos until it is revealed he has been working with Falcone’s daughter Sofia to take down Penguin which she succeeds in doing while having Penguin sent to Arkham where he meets Jerome Valeska. Eventually after Sofia is taken down by Gordon, Jerome Valeska, Jervis Tetch, and Jonathan Crane escape from Arkham along with others and team up with Victor Fries, Bridget Pike, Penguin, and Solomon Grundy to create a supervillain team known as the Legion of Horribles to bring madness and destruction to Gotham which leads to Jerome’s brother Jeremiah Valeska undergoing a chemical transformation. In addition, the energies that Ra’s al Ghul placed in Barbara Kean called the rest of the League of Shadows to her as the female members pledge their loyalty to her. Eventually, Jeremiah Valeska and Ra’s al Ghul’s plans plunge Gotham City into a no man’s land causing it to be evacuated while the different villains start claiming their territory in Gotham City.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve got the DVR programmed and ready to go because I cannot just sit and watch the premiere this evening. So many emails have come down the pike since the year turned from 2018 into 2019 and I’ve a lot to bring to your attention. I will be watching though because as I’ve noted, while there are some “issues” I’ve had with the series, I did find it to be generally enjoyable and loaded with twists and turns just like a solid comic book story would go. What about you readers? Are you psyched for this show and will you be sad when it no longer airs? Chime in down below.
