Gotham A Dark Knight A Day in the Narrows Recap Season 4 Episode 7
Things gets ramped up a bit when everyone in the precinct except Gordon gets a bloody pig’s mask mailed by Professor Pyg. Pyg;s reign of terror against corrupt cops in Gotham is continuing, with more police officers vanishing and then winding up dead. Bullock has a solution that Gordon doesn’t like. He has teamed up with Penguin and his army of mercenaries led by a killer who calls himself Headhunter.
The police and the mercenaries, with Gordon reluctantly coming along, head for the Narrows, the bad part of Gotham, to look for Professor Pyg. The operation involves dragging people out of their apartments and beating them until they talk while Gordon futilely tries to stop them. Finally, Headhunter picks up a clue by holding a gun to the head of the husband of an elderly woman.
Gordon and Bullock save one of the officers who has been kidnapped, though two others wind up dead, one shot accidentally by Bullock when he charges in with his men to save him in what turns out to be a trap. While the Gotham City police officers are pinned down with machine gun fire, the Penguin’s mercenaries refuse to come to their rescue. Gordon saves the day single handedly, proving to Bullock and the other police officers that the deal with the Penguin is a devil’s bargain. They gain a new-found respect for Gordon, who the police officers had regarded as a little too by the book. Penguin, in a fit of frustrated rage, kills Headhunter.
In the meantime, Bruce Wayne runs into an old school chum, Grace, at a fundraiser. Grace persuades him to go clubbing with some friends, including a bully who Bruce beat the snot out of a season or so ago. They gain entry into the club because Bruce, as a billionaire, is able to buy it. Bruce, Grace, and company proceed to some serious partying. Is Bruce just building up his persona as a billionaire dilettante, or is he letting off steam after the misadventure with R’as.?
Finally, as Barbara tries to close down her arms business, Selina and Tabitha try to dissuade her. Selina goes to demonstrate the lucrative possibilities of burglary by robbing a motorcycle gang but almost loses her life in the process.
