The guards shoot at the helicopter, hitting her in her stomach. Like that stops her. She toughs it up and keeps flying.
That's right, she flies a chopper with a bullet in her stomach, and she's never flown before. So badass!
There's no telling where or if Fish and her crew will land. But if the writing has been this strong so far, I can't wait to see her character's explosive grand finale at the end of the season.
The Ogre plotline felt a little like a "Law & Order: SVU" episode. Not that it's a bad thing, but the "Fifty Shades of Gray" gone wrong sexcapades mixed with a flashback seemed out of place for the standard "Gotham" episode.
A young cop pulls the "I want to help improve Gotham" trick on Jim, and asks him for his help on a cold case. "This is a nasty one," he says.
Sure, unconditional love for him, but not for her. One wrong move, and they're added to his Polaroid collection of victims.
With a dozen bodies racked up, you'd think that the GCPD would be able to close in on the creep. But he's a spiteful and exacting killer.
"The Ogre retaliates against any cop who investigates him," Harvey warns Jim. "He kills the people they love." That's why no officer will touch a murder scene with the Ogre's signature broken heart calling card.
Commissioner Loeb knows this, and that's why he sicked that young police officer onto Jim with the hopes of solving the case.
Not that the commissioner wants the case to be solved; he's putting Jim's loved ones at risk (see: Leigh or Barbara) to get back at Jim for strong-arming his way to president of the police union and threatening to expose the truth about his criminally insane daughter.
At least, that's my theory. Loeb's motive isn't clear yet, but that hasn't stopped Jim from picking a fight with his corrupt boss.
"When I find the Ogre, I'm coming after you," Jim growls to Loeb in front of the entire station.
Putting an elusive serial killer behind bars and threatening to lock up his boss with him? Yup, Jim's ambitious and foolish. Typical.
He'll likely catch the Ogre next week, but will he actually be able to take down the commissioner just a few weeks into his role as president of the police union? Or will he get bumped back to Arkham again?
MORE HIGHLIGHTS FROM "BEASTS OF PREY":
Best Harvey one-liner: "And I deserve a mute super model who likes pasty Irish guys and loves to cook." Man oh man did I miss you, Harvey.
Worst boss: Bruce. Why didn't he take Alfred to the hospital when his wound started bleeding again? He just let him sleep it off on the couch with a blanket like he has the flu. Does Wayne Manor health care not cover extended hospital stays?
Most ominous line: "Something has to be wrong with you!" Grace Fairchild says to Jason, aka the Ogre. Where to begin with that one.
Most eyebrow-raising line: "Could've smashed your head with a brick, you know." – Cat to Bruce
Cutthroat business: Rather than invest in the failing club he does have, Penguin ruins a man's love life and music career just so that he can buy a "pile of bricks." Not because he wants to make money, oh no. That's where he's going to kill Sal Maroni.
It seems too early in the Batman mythos to kill off Sal, or for Penguin to take over, for that matter. Will he succeed or will this just rile up more bad blood between Penguin/Falcone and Maroni?
From Bruce to Batman: I love watching flashes of the Caped Crusader in Bruce as he faces challenges that no teen should ever face, like who stabbed my butler and should I shove this man out of a window to make me safe in the long run?
I think a better question is why does he have a crush on a femme fatale who pushed Reggie out the window? Yes, he tempted to push Reggie himself, but Cat went ahead and did the deed. I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of tension between Bruce and Cat now.
Farewell to Fish: What a shame Jada Pinkett Smith is leaving "Gotham" at the end of the season. Kudos to the writers for making her final episodes so memorable and theatrical. At least there's Penguin.
