A Bitter Pill to Swallow

Tabitha (Jessica Lucas) arrives at a bar where she enters an underground illegal casino run by a woman known as The Lady (Michelle Gomez). Tabitha offers money in exchange for killing Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie) after the arrest of Galavan (James Frain). Gordon is notified in the hospital that Barbara (Erin Richards) will survive and transferred to Arkham Asylum. Elsewhere, Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) wakes up in Nygma's (Cory Michael Smith) apartment. When he begins to freak, Nygma sedates him to sleep again. Bruce (David Mazouz) tries to get the information of his parents' killer from Silver (Natalie Alyn Lind), but is stopped by Alfred (Sean Pertwee), who asks Silver to leave. Silver gives Bruce her hotel key unadvisedly.

Lee and Gordon's relationship gets tense after Lee watched Gordon kiss Barbara during the interrogation. While in the elevator to Galavan's penthouse, Gordon is attacked by a hitman, Billy Boy (Jon Sklaroff), but he manages to defeat him. Seeing his failure, The Lady sends more hitmen to kill Gordon. When Billy Boy gets conscious, Gordon asks him who sent him. When Boy doesn't reveal anything, Gordon nearly throws him from the penthouse until he is stopped by Barnes (Michael Chiklis). While Barnes chastises Gordon, hitmen arrive at the penthouse. While standing guard at the door, a hitman enters from the stairs and kills the forensics officer. The hitmen enter the penthouse and a shooting begins. The officers manage to kill the hitmen and Gordon injures Flamingo. Billy Boy frees himself and takes officer Parks hostage but Gordon manages to kill him.

Gordon and Barnes discover ritual indications from Galavan but the hitman gains consciousness and stabs Barnes in the leg, prompting Barnes to shoot him in the stomach. The Lady then sends another hitman, Eduardo Flamingo (Raúl Castillo) to kill Gordon. Cobblepot wakes up again and tries to leave, but Nygma prevents him from doing so, stating he's a wanted man for the attempted murder of Galavan. Cobblepot begins to feel guilty after having failed to protect his mother. Nygma tries to help him by showing him a captured associate of Galavan, Leonard, as retaliation for the murder of his mother. Cobblepot refuses and sobs in the bed. They bond together over the respective deaths of their loved ones and they decide to have fun on Leonard. The police officers arrive but they're killed by Flamingo. Gordon lowers to the entrance and is attacked by Flamingo. Although Flamingo gets the upper hand, Gordon defeats him. Gordon can't make himself kill Flamingo and arrest him. However, in the GCPD, Flamingo eats Parks' ear and she dies from bleeding later.

Selina (Camren Bicondova) visits Bruce and convinces him she has enough proof about Silver. Tabitha visits Galavan in jail, where Galavan expresses his anger for the hitmen and states that if she does it again, he'll kill her. Later that night, the religious sect of the Galavans arrive at Gotham City where they're greeted by Father Creel (Ron Rifkin). They then kill a patrol officer when he sees them and begin to advance to Gotham City.
