Synopsis: Bullock’s past comes back to haunt him when he and Gordon investigate two murders at Sirens. Meanwhile, Bruce and Alfred explore the tunnels beneath the city, and Penguin and Nygma’s plans to escape are thwarted by the least likely of suspects.
Review: An old case comes back to bite Bullock on the butt.
When three old-timers walk into Sirens and only one leaves having murdered the other two. Bullocks old friend and mentor Dix is implicated, but things soon get complicated when the murderer comes after Dix and leaves behind a bit of physical evidence in the form of a mask, which seems to be made of human skin.
As the story unfolds. We learn that the killer has a connection to an old case that Bullock and Dix worked on.
Elsewhere, Nygma and Penguin are making plans to escape Gotham via the means of a submarine, but their plan is put on hold when a very pissed off Dummy by the name of Scarface who is being aided by Mr. Penn delay things.
Donal Logue puts in a fantastic performance as Bullock whose past sins come back to haunt him when a killer by the name of Jane Doe targets him and other cops who were responsible for the conviction and death of her mother.
Also really good was guest star Sarah Pidgeon who was quite compelling as Jane Doe.
This was a really strong episode, which deviated from the main story arc a little to give us a really good mystery and also introduced what could be a really good new villain should the writers wish to bring back Jane Doe again, which I hope they do because I loved the tragic backstory.
Also enjoyable was seeing Nygma and Penguin work together again, but one has to wonder how long the truce between them will last.
