Mad Grey Dawn

In the Gotham Museum of Art, Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) uses a decoy bomb to steal a painting, "The Mad Grey Dawn" and leaving a question mark where the painting was. Barnes (Michael Chiklis) assigns Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bullock (Donal Logue) to investigate the robbery. He also confronts Gordon about an anonymous tip stating he killed Galavan but Gordon denies any involvement. Having been released from Arkham Asylum, Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) visits Butch (Drew Powell) and Tabitha (Jessica Lucas). They both order to kill him but Butch changes his mind upon acknowledging that Cobblepot has changed but lets Tabitha humiliate him by tarring and feathering him.

Gordon and Bullock meet with museum curator, Thatch (Jerry Dixon), who tells them that apart from stealing the painting, two portraits had question marks painted. Gordon realizes the question marks are above the artists' names, "Marché" and "LaRue". As Marché means market and LaRue means road, Gordon deduces Market Street. Along with the stolen painting having a train on and is called "Bloody Monday", Gordon finally realizes there is a bomb at the train station on Market Street. They arrive at the train station where they discover an explosive device in a locker. Gordon throws the device in an architectural feature before it detonates.

 Bruce (David Mazouz) and Selina (Camren Bicondova) rendezvous with Ivy (Clare Foley), who's working for Butch's nephew, Sonny (Paul Pilcz) to experiment the plants. They drug a small part of the gang with plants and steal their money but are stopped by Sonny's arrival. Bruce confronts Sonny and gets severely beaten but upon recalling Alfred's advise, he continues making Sonny beat him and finally beats him. He and Selina escape. Cobblepot visits his mother's grave where he encounters a man, Elijah Van Dahl (Paul Reubens) leaving flowers in her tomb. Upon knowing about Cobblepot's age and being her son, Van Dahl realizes Cobblepot is his son. He takes Cobblepot to his manor where he introduces him to his wife Grace (Melinda Clarke), his children Charles (Justin Mark) and Sasha (Kaley Ronayne). He also reveals to him that Gertrude never told him he had a son as his family would be disapproving of such acts.

Gordon is notified by Bullock that a contact in Internal Affairs has re-opened the investigation in Galavan's murder and Gordon is the prime suspect. Lee (Morena Baccarin) is terrified since Gordon assured her that the problem was over. Nygma visits Strike Force member, Carl Pinkney (Ian Quinlan) and kills him. Bullock directs Gordon to a possible bomb threat where Gordon discovers Pinkney's corpse. Barnes arrives and assumes Gordon killed Pinkney as Pinkney (Nygma in fact) texted him to talk to him about Gordon. He arrests him and states the weapon has Gordon's fingerprints, as Gordon used it to open the locker in the train station. Nygma also used Pinkney's firm to sign an anonymous report which could implicate him as the informant accusing Gordon. Gordon is taken to trial and declared guilty of the murders.

In Arkham, Barbara (Erin Richards) finally wakes up while listening to Gordon's trial. Lee visits Gordon, who, for Lee's sake, tells her to never contact him again. The episode ends as Gordon is transferred to Blackgate Penitentiary where Bullock states he will find whoever set him up.
