Gotham 4.12 FAQ
What’s it called?
“Pieces of a Broken Mirror.”
Teleplay is credited to Danny Cannon (“CSI”), who’s also hard at work on the new pre-Superman “Metropolis” series set to hit the new DC Comics streaming service next year.
What says Fox?
“Gordon is called to the scene after The Toy Maker is hired to assassinate one of Gotham's doctors. Lee Thompkins begins to try to rebuild the Narrows, with Nygma as her partner. Meanwhile, Alfred's new life in the Narrows becomes complicated and Ivy reveals her new persona to Selina.”
How does it start?
“How can I help you, Captain Gordon?” Gordon visits a whorehouse in his quest to find Harvey Bullock, but finds a freshly-fired Alfred Pennyworth instead.
When we last saw Grundy, he just got Butch’s memories back. Is Grundy not in this episode?
Grundy back this week! But him not tell Ed he’s Butch Gilzean again!
Is Riddler smart again?
Yes, and still in love with Lee Thompkins.
Is Gordon commissioner yet?
No. He’s only been captain like 10 minutes.
What’s doing with Harvey Bullock?
Gordon can’t find him.
Is Ra’s around?
No, though Alexander Siddig is still in the opening credits.
What’s doing with Bruce Wayne?
Still living the life of a rich party boy, much to Catgirl’s disdain.
What’s doing with Hot Ivy and Catgirl?
Catgirl is partnered with Barbara and Tabitha in their nightclub. Peyton List, 31, who played trophy wife Jane Siegel Sterling on “Mad Men,” Lucy Lane on “Smallville” and Lisa Snart on “The Flash,” replaces Maggie Geha this week as the third version of Poison Ivy. (New Gotham Girl Peyton List is not to be confused with 19-year-old Disney Channel actress Peyton Roi List.)
What’s doing with Freeze and Firefly?
No ice or fire.
What’s doing with Dr. Strange?
No new go for Hugo.
Is the tetched Nathanial Barnes back?
The big news?
Alfred turns two-fisted (if cowl-free) vigilante.

Morena Baccarin as Dr. Thompkins, Corey Michael Smith as Nygma and Ben McKenzie as Gordon. Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Camren Bicondova as Catgirl, or Erin Richards as Barbara Kean.
