Gotham: This Ball of Mud and Meaness

Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) continues to be disturbed by the torture sessions at Arkham Asylum where he imagines watching himself beat his mother (Carol Kane). By petition from Strange (B. D. Wong), he is served ice cream in the dining hall and is assaulted by an inmate but shows no signs of violence.

In an alley, Bruce (David Mazouz) receives the gun from Selina (Camren Bicondova) so he intends to kill Patrick "Matches" Malone. Lee (Morena Baccarin) shows Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie) the paychecks from Kristen Kringle which she never picked. Gordon questions Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) about Kringle's disappearance but he denies knowing anything. Bruce and Alfred (Sean Pertwee) find about Matches' partner, Cupcake (Jamar Green), who leads an underground fight club. Cupcake makes a deal with Bruce promising to tell him Matches' whereabouts as long as Alfred fights with him. Using his SAS experiences, Alfred wins the fight. Cupcake tells them to look for Jeri (Lori Petty), the woman who knows about Matches. Alfred is taken to the hospital and falls unconscious, to which Bruce leaves the hospital. Gordon and Bullock (Donal Logue) are then notified of his plans to kill Matches. Bruce arrives at a club owned by Jeri (Lori Petty), who are all influenced by Jerome Valeska's acts.

After a moment of thinking, she finally gives him Matches' address. Gordon arrives at the club and stops Bruce but Gordon is restrained by Jeri's group which gives time for Bruce to escape. Bruce finally reaches Matches' (Michael Bowen) apartment. Matches finally reveals killing his parents but states he was contracted by someone and for a code, he won't tell. Bruce is about to kill him but stops at the last moment, realizing Matches doesn't want to live anymore. Gordon arrives at the apartment but Matches shoots himself. Alfred finds a note in Wayne Manor from Bruce, stating he will live in the streets with Selina for a time as a way to know more about fighting crime and save Gotham in the future.

Cobblepot is finally released from Arkham Asylum after being declared "sane" although Strange states to Ethel Peabody (Tonya Pinkins) that he still has plans for experiments in him. Nygma notices Gordon investigating Kringle's disappearance and swears to outsmart him. In his apartment, Nygma reads about Gordon and draws a question mark over his face.
