Season 2 Starts with a FireStorm! "Damned If You Do"

Picking up where the last season left, Bruce (David Mazouz) and Alfred (Sean Pertwee) discover a hideout behind the fireplace with secret stairs. Upon descending the stairs, they discover a locked door with a password pad. Alfred tries to tell him that there must be another way to open it since there would be thousands of passwords. One month later, Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie) has been reassigned from the GCPD to traffic duty; Bullock (Donal Logue) is retired, working in a bar; Cobblepot is now the boss of organized crime of Gotham City; and Barbara (Erin Richards) is incarcerated in Arkham Asylum. During a shift, Gordon arrests a man calling himself "Zaardon the Soul Reaper" (David Fierro) when he wreaks havoc.

Commissioner Loeb (Peter Scolari) fires Gordon for punishing an officer for showing up late to work. In Arkham, Jerome Valeska (Cameron Monaghan) approaches Barbara, telling her that Richard Sionis (Todd Stashwick) can give her anything she wants. Zaardon is transferred to Arkham and a blue gas spills from his mouth, which makes everyone in the room unconscious. A woman and her guards appear in Arkham, kills the guards and subdues Barbara, Jerome, Sionis, Aaron Helzinger (Stink Fisher), Robert Greenwood (Dustin Ybarra) and Arnold Dobkins (Will Brill). The woman, Tabitha (Jessica Lucas), brings them to her brother Theo Galavan (James Frain). Galavan plans on using them as a group to wreak havoc in Gotham in a yet-unknown plan. Sionis refuses the offer and tries to leave with Barbara, but Tabitha kills him. Barbara then calls Gordon, trying to tell him Lee (Morena Baccarin) was the one who attacked her. Gordon dismisses her and drops the phone. She then leaves a threatening message on Lee's phone, telling her she wishes she was dead.

 Gordon goes with Cobblepot, asking him for help in returning to the GCPD and firing Loeb. Cobblepot agrees in exchange for Gordon collecting a debt from Odgen Barker (Otto Sanchez), who had a $70,000 debt with Falcone but thinks he forfeited it since Falcone retired. Gordon refuses and leaves. Upon reconsidering, Gordon visits Barker. Barker refuses and threatens Gordon with a gun, which prompts Gordon to attack his bodyguards. Gordon takes the money and leaves but is pursued by the bodyguards. He escapes to the parking lot where he is confronted by Barker. Gordon shoots Barker and gives the money to Cobblepot.

That night, Cobblepot and Victor Zsasz (Anthony Carrigan) sneak into Loeb's home and blackmail him. Loeb quits the GCPD and names Sarah Essen (Zabryna Guevara) the new Commissioner. Gordon tells Lee about what he did for Cobblepot later. Bruce decides to create a homemade fertilizer bomb to open the door, to Alfred's shock. The two blow up the door to reveal a study room and a computer. Bruce finds a note where his father tells him that he suspected there was corruption in Wayne Enterprises and how he became paranoid. He also tells him to not to search further as the truth found in the computer will change his life.
