Gotham- “What The Little Bird Told Him”

Gotham is on high alert as Jack Gruber and Aaron Helzinger remain at large from Arkham. Back at the police precinct the Commissioner demands to know what is being done to track down the two fugitives. Jim admonishes him for not being more hands on with the department and then tells him he is the only person who can catch Gruber because he knows how he thinks. Under a bridge elsewhere in the city Falcon murders one of his men and later meets with Liza. He tells her she should move on and meet a young man to make a family with. He offers to help her become independent. She insists she would rather be with him. However, he tells him in order to do so he will need his rank reinstated. The Commissioner agrees to his terms, but gives him twenty-four hours to catch Gruber or both he and Bullock will be demoted to Arkham security for good. Gruber makes his first move elsewhere in town, going after a former acquaintance who has been keeping his equipment. He electrocutes the man’s assistant to death and then uses the machinery to rewrite Aaron’s brain again.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
