Television: Gotham, "All Happy Families Are Alike"

Fish Mooney comes back looking all punk and gives Cat a makeover. Then they fight Maroni and Penguin and none of us cares much because (a) we know Gordon will live, (b) we know Penguin will live, and (c) we know Jada Pinkett Smith is leaving the show. So the end of this fight is more or less a foregone conclusion.

Meanwhile, Leslie wants Barbara to get counseling after the whole Jason thing, but Barbara insists the only person she is willing to talk to is Leslie herself. Already we all know this is a bad idea. The ex and the current girlfriend hashing it out? And it's clear Barbara is unstable. So when she starts talking about how she killed her parents and then pulls a knife on Leslie, well, we can't say we didn't see that coming. It would have been more surprising if it hadn't happened.

Nygma shows [more] signs of cracking up.

And Bruce discovers the Bat Cave.

All pretty basic. One wonders if they'll skip ahead a few years at the start of next season. Otherwise, this is moving at a snail's pace and I can't be bothered.
