Gordon is taking a little break from his regular job to focus on helping Bruce and Alfred to find the killer of Thomas and Martha Wayne. But the secret that Thomas left in the computer that Lucius Fox recovered tells a more complicated story. Barbara Keane ‘recovery’ seems to bring her to the door steps of Gordon who wants nothing to do with her. It’s like a duplication of Penguin’s post Arkham scenario. You know she is not fully recover and can be trigger any moment to turn psychotic again. But in this episode at least she help Gordon in searching for the connection to the killer of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Previously through Bruce effort that found Matches Malone as well as an attempt on Gordon’s life by Theo Galavant that connect to the ‘Lady’ who took the kill contract from an unknown man by the name of The Philosopher. In the end it was through Alfred and Bruce investigation that lead to the identity of the killer. Bruce found in the old calendar of Thomas Wayne that had a date to meet up with a Karen Jennings a week before he was murder. A place they suppose to meet at Pinewood. Bruce and Alfred traced the elusive woman to a remote cabin. Karen Jennings was born with a deformed hand. She suffered abuse from her father because of it. One day in self-defence she killed her father but ended in jail regardless. It was Thomas Wayne who took pity of her wanting to heal her deformed hand, an experiment that gone wrong under the abuse of rogue scientist.Turn out Pinewood farm was a bio-engineer experimental lab that gone wrong under Wayne Enterprise. While Thomas Wayne had the good intention but his ambition was hijacked by his trusted scientist friend Mr. Philosopher. When he saw the result of Karen Jennings’s hand that look like a transplanted eagle claw, he shut down the facility and continue to help Jennings anyway he can. Bruce conclude that Mr. Philosopher must have revive the bio-engineer experiment again. Karen took Alfred and Bruce to the now deserted Pinewood Farm to be chased by some thugs and got arrested by police for trespassing. While both Alfred and Bruce were released, due to Karen criminal past (she did kill one of the thugs while in the Pinewood Farm) she was to be sent to Black Gate. Meanwhile Dr. Strange was alerted earlier that Alfred and Bruce was looking for Karen Jennings. It was he who experimented on her and it was he who had contracted for the dead of Thomas and Martha. While Strange was reanimating a patient 44 in Arkham. He needs to silence Karen Jennings about his past. He outfitted Mr Freeze with his freezer and robo-suit to pursue Jennings. While Alfred and Bruce and Gordon hijacked the Black Gate transporter in trying to extract Karen, somehow Mr. Freeze knows where they are and stop them in the middle of a road. Karen met her dead when she was iced by M. Freeze and smashed into pieces. Back at the Wayne Manor, the trio with the help of Lucius Fox connected the dot and find Hugo Strange as the killer of Martha and Thomas Wayne. Back in Arkham we see that Strange experiment was a success as patient 44 was alive and killing all the staff in the room. He is the deceased Theo Galavant, screaming Azrael – the sacred sword of St. Duma looking crazier than ever. That lead us to next week confrontation when Gordon and Bruce question Strange about his connection with Pinewood farm. Strange sends Galavant after Gordon. Meanwhile Ed Nygma tries to learn more about Strange in Arkham. So what do you think of the episode?
