"For example, I'm not staying at the gym for two hours anymore. I hit it and quit it... I'm not going to stress my body that way anymore. I can't."

Gotham 107
Right from the moment Oswald "The Penguin" Cobblepot (Robin Taylor) walked into police headquarters to announce he was still alive, it was pretty clear this that this week's episode was going to be a bit different. Instead of following along with James Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie) as he attempts to solve the Crime of the Week, we are thrown rather quickly into a riveting battle between Gordon and Zsasz (Anthony Carrigan), a villain from the Batman comic-books who works for Falcone (John Doman). Gordon is the loser and it would likely have lost his life if not for a somewhat eye-rolling plot ...
