Mr. Freeze

Having killed Galavan (James Frain), Gordon (Ben McKenzie) attends a hearing preceded by Harvey Dent (Nicholas D'Agosto) and Captain Barnes (Michael Chiklis). Gordon denies involvement in Galavan's murder, claiming Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) was the one who did it. They exonerate him of the charges and he can return to the GCPD.

It's also revealed that Cobblepot's henchmen abandoned him after the murder. Butch (Drew Powell) has now become the boss of organized crime in Gotham and receives a visit from Tabitha (Jessica Lucas), who plans on working with him, which culminates in a kiss, watched by Selina (Camren Bicondova).

Meanwhile, in the streets, an officer catches a man hiding a corpse in his trunk. When she tries to arrest him, the man, Victor Fries (Nathan Darrow) freezes her with his gun. Gordon returns to the GCPD where he and Bullock (Donal Logue) investigate the killing spree of Fries. While Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) performs a test on the cryogenics, he deduces the killer uses supercooled liquid helium.

After Bullock leaves, Gordon questions Nygma about Cobblepot living in his apartment, where Nygma states he didn't realize his killings. Barnes then arrives, having captured Cobblepot. During his testimony, both Cobblepot's and Gordon's recount matches so Barnes ends up convinced.

Cobblepot is then sent to Arkham Asylum after claiming he's "insane". Fries arrives at his apartment, where his wife, Nora (Kristen Hager) is suffering from illness. He works on his basement, which contains frozen people in an attempt to freeze Nora until a cure is found. He performs a test on a test subject, trying to reanimate him with heat. It initially works but the corpse begins disintegrating. When she runs out of medicine, he goes to the pharmacy. The pharmacist (Danny Hoch) refuses to give him the medicine without prescription. Victor later returns for the medicine with his suit and weapon and then freezes the pharmacist to act as test subject.

 The GCPD arrive but Victor escapes with the pharmacist's body. The GCPD finds Nora Fries' prescription bottle in the pharmacy and they bust the Fries house. By that time, Victor went out and Nora found out his basement, shocked. They take her in custody as Victor watches in horror. She's then questioned about Victor's activities and is threatened to be sent to jail but she refuses to betray Victor.

In Arkham, Cobblepot is taunted by the prisoners after claiming he's the "king of Gotham". He's then sent to therapy with head psychiatrist Dr. Hugo Strange (B. D. Wong), who states his plans to send Cobblepot through many programs in Arkham. As he returns to his cell, Cobblepot discovers Strange's patient, Nigel (John Pirkis) cut his own eyes after inspirations of Strange's words: "See no evil, do no evil". Victor, unwilling to let Nora go to prison, decides to turn himself in to the GCPD. As he awaits, Nygma performs a surgery on the pharmacist's body and then leaves for a moment. When he returns, the pharmacist is gone. The pharmacist then walks over the GCPD, alive. He then stumbles in the floor as he recognizes Victor. Victor is surprised to see it worked and escapes, planning on continue helping Nora get a cure.

 In the final scene, Dr. Strange enters into a secret elevator in Arkham which sends him to Indian Hill labs. An employee, Ethel Peabody (Tonya Pinkins) adds that Bridgit Pike is still alive and refusing to cooperate with them. She reveals the work of Fries, which surprises Strange. As she hands him a newspaper, the media has now given Fries a new name: Mr. Freeze.
