Gotham: Synopsis Of Episode 21: “The Anvil or the Hammer”


Gotham returns this Monday for it’s final four episodes. But heck, why wait to know what’s ahead? We have a synopsis of the 21st (that’s the second to last episode of the season, so yo know big things are going down) episode of Gotham’s first season, titled “The Anvil or the Hammer”.

More from TV

"The Ogre breaks down Barbara’s emotions, while Gordon and Bullock go to great lengths to track him down. Meanwhile, Penguin leads a massacre, beginning an epic war, while Bruce learns the truth about Wayne Enterprises and Nygma deals with his recent actions in the all-new “The Anvil or the Hammer” episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, April 27 (8:00-9:00 ET/PT) on FOX. (GTH-121) (TV-14 D, L, V)"

So it definitely sounds like the Ogre, played by Milo Ventimiglia, will have captured Barbara Keane and performing mind games on her. Will Gordon be aware of this, or will he and Bullock just coincidentally be trying to track down the vicious serial killer (I doubt it’s a coincidence)? Also looks like Penguin is making his big move, will he become a major mob leader in the process? I can’t wait til Gotham returns this Monday, just so we can get closer to Episode 21, “The Anvil Or The Hammer”! Be sure to watch the final four episodes of Gotham’s first season starting this Monday on Fox!
