Gotham Preview/Synopsis – S02E08 – “Rise Of The Villains: Tonight’s The Night”


On last week’s “Mommy’s Little Monster” episode of Fox’s Gotham, Penguin finally found his mother, only to see her murdered right in front of him by the Galavans.  Narrowly escaping his execution by Theo, Penguin spent the entire episode planning the assassination of the new Mayor of Gotham.  However, all was not lost.  The Penguin’s actions did get the attention of Jim, who now has his suspicions about Theo’s motives.

On the romance front, Selina has now been kicked to the curb by Bruce after Silver’s manipulation — an act she’s doing for her Uncle Theo in order to make Bruce more compliant.  The final scene of the episode had Selina getting her heartbroken while witnessing a kiss between Bruce and Silver.  I guess under all that hard talk, Selina does have a soft spot.

Will Theo finally get his way with Wayne Enterprises?  Will Theo be exposed as the criminal that he is?  We’ll find out on this week’s episode of Gotham.  Here’s the official synopsis for “Rise of the Villains: Tonight’s the Night”:

"Galavan sends Barbara after Jim Gordon, while he tries to make a business deal with Bruce Wayne. Barnes and Bullock are hot on Barbara’s trail, and Nygma has a run-in with a familiar face in the all-new “Rise of the Villains: Tonight’s the Night” episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, Nov. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
