Gotham is back this week and our own Leonard Marciano is here to review the final episode of the year as the mid season finale takes place.

Gotham: Beware The Green-Eyed Monster Review

This week we look forward to the three main storylines that have been going on the last couple of weeks. On one side we have the Riddler seeking revenge for Isabella on the Penguin. We also have Bruce and Selina making a play at ending the Court of Owls, and finally we have the question of what will happen between the love triangle of Gordon, Lee, and Mario.

First up is the Riddler and his quest for retribution against the Penguin. One nice touch in this episode was having Nygma start to don a green suit. Throughout the episode we see Nygma fantasizing about killing Penguin. Ultimately Riddler foregoes this option and chooses to destroy Penguin and his empire instead as he looks to make a mends with Barbara, Butch, and Tabitha. In their final scene Barbara proposes to Butch and Tabitha to not kill Nygma, but rather use him to help destroy Penguin's empire. It was a nice touch to see Barbara reference what a brilliant strategist Nygma is, as this point is highly emphasized during Scott Snyder's "Batman: Zero Year," storyline.

Next us we have Bruce and Selina as well as Alfred along for the ride. We see Bruce and Selina practice tight rope walking in Bruce's mansion in order to not get caught when they try to steal the artifact the Whisper gang told them could help destroy the Court of Owls. Although Bruce can make it through a couple of times he falls a lot more. Selina decides it's a crazy endeavor to go through with, but Alfred advises her that she too is in danger. Alfred lets Selina know that Bruce had stopped pursuing the Court of Owls in order to keep her safe, but she decides to leave anyways. Alfred and Bruce arrive at the Court's location and are surprised by Selina who agrees to help them, but warns them that she feels like they're being watched. Bruce and Selina go in together while Alfred works on securing the area. While Bruce and Selina successfully open the vault to reveal a crystal owl they are met by Talon who causes Selina to fall and trip the alarm. They work on running away, but are chased by Talon. Alfred is able to assist in holding off Talon but is losing, and Bruce decides to try and stay to help and so does Selina. Just as things look bad a mysterious woman breaks in and hits Talon with a glass vase allowing Alfred to deal a killing blow to Talon. The mystery woman is revealed to be Selina's mother. This was an interesting reveal as in "Batman: Dark Victory," and "Catwoman: When in Rome,"we learn that Selina may
