Did You Know?


The title Into The Woods is a reference to a musical about fairy tales, including Cinderella. In this episode the Penguin is placed in the position of working as a servant in his deceased father's house, serving his step-mother and step-siblings, just like Cinderella. See more »


Nygma calculates the odds of Gordon finding Penguin (80%) plus the chances of Penguin telling him (80%) adding them in a 60% total chance of Gordon finding Kringle. As chances are conditional (one has to happen before the other can happen) the correct way of calculating is by multiplying them (resulting in a 64% total chance). A scientific mind such as Nygma's wouldn't make that mistake. See more »

User Reviews

Oh but I must disagree, I find Sasha more tender to eat than Charles
11 April 2016 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

And so as season 2 begins to wind down, the entertainment value of Gotham remains just as strong as it was in season 1 and the story lines are still so exciting and unpredictable which Mrs. Shullivan and I find quite appealing.

There are so many great intertwining stories that all seem to encircle our main character Jim Gordon. In this episode Jim Gordon is still an escaped convict, estranged from the love of his life Leslie Thompkins who is carrying their child, and so Jim tries to find out who is responsible for setting him up for a murder that he did not commit as he stays on the run from being re-captured. He gets lots of help from his loyal partner Harvey Bullock, as well as from Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, Selina Kyle and even from the troubled Edward Nygma.

Poor Oswald Cobblepot is grieving heavily after losing his father so soon after just accidentally finding his father was still alive. It becomes somewhat of a Cinderella themed story when Oswald's evil stepmother Grace Van Dahl tells Oswald that she will let him continue living in his own father's mansion but he must stay on as their housemaid, so that she and her two mean children Charles and Sasha can treat him like scum. Oswald initially accepts their abusive ways and then one day his Penguin hairdo is back in place and there is an evil grin on Oswalds face which tells us that he now knows how his loving father came to his demise.

You just can't keep a good penguin down for too long and we have a very happy ending for both the Penguin and Jim Gordon. Then there is a knock on Jim's door and an old friend says hello...and so the story of Gotham continues. I am looking well into the future to the year 2023 when season 9 of Gotham wraps things up for this long and successful television series.
