Gotham A Dark Knight: Hog Day Afternoon Season 4 Episode 6
Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock do the buddy cop thing to pursue Professor Pyg. Unfortunately, he kills more officers, leaving some on the courthouse steps. Gordon, interrogating a street musician who is pretending to be blind, get a clue about a van used to transport the bodies. Gordon and Bullock find one of Professor Pyg’s victims tied to a chair, with a grenade embedded in his stomach. They get far enough away to avoid getting killed, but not far enough to avoid being stunned.
Gordon wakes up duct-taped to a chair. Professor Pyg confronts him, not to kill him, but to try to win him over to his side as Gordon is one of the few honest cops in Gotham. Gordon refuses, so Professor Pyg goes off to kill Bullock, who is corrupt. Gordon moves his chair off a ledge so that it breaks apart beneath him. He rescues Bullock, but Pyg gets away.
Meanwhile, Ed Nygma is making money hand over fist by managing Solomon Grundy in the fight club. He meets Leslie Tompkins, no longer working for the GCPD, now healing the wounded fighters and running a clinic for the poor people of Gotham. Ed, for some reason, wants Thompkins to fix his brain, even though she is not a neurologist. She is, for reasons that escape him but should be evident to anyone who remembers their history, reluctant to do so. Nevertheless, Ed thinks he can blackmail Tompkins if he can just figure out how.
Finally, Sofia Falcone continues her cat and mouse game with the Penguin. She fails to show up for a lunch date, fueling his paranoia. When the Penguin finds out that Sofia has had lunch with the mayor and has bought a closed hotel, he concludes that she intends to reestablish her father’s criminal empire and move against him. But when he confronts her with his suspicion, Sofia reveals that she has turned the hotel into an orphanage. Now the Penguin is confused. Is she really doing charitable good works or is this part of a larger scheme?
