synopsis : Gordon and Barnes continue cleaning up Gotham, and Gordon comes face-to-face with one of the city’s most dangerous hitmen, Eduardo Flamingo (guest star Raul Castillo). Meanwhile, Nygma and Penguin cross paths again, and Bruce pressures Galavan into handing over the name of his parents’ murderer
"This might be the most violent episode we've done, the closest to sort of a Kill Bill episode," EP John Stephens warns. "Jim and Captain Barnes have their backs to the wall the entire episode, pretty much non-stop. It's a humdinger!"

Tonight on Gotham season 2, episode 9, “A Bitter Pill to Swallow,” Gordon makes a new enemy.
Gordon will have even more guilt to deal with when it comes to Barbara. He already feels bad about everything she went through when she was abducted by a serial killer. Will seeing Barbara physically damaged, as well as mentally, be too much for Gordon? And can his relationship with Leslie stand the damage done by Barbara?

synopsis : Galavan sends Barbara after Jim Gordon, while he tries to make a business deal with Bruce Wayne. Barnes and Bullock are hot on Barbara's trail, and Nygma has a run-in with a familiar face.

"The culmination of the Barbara/Gordon/Thompkins storyline, which happens in episode eight, is bananas. I watched the episode the other day and it is just -- it feels very core and mythic and elevated, like everything we wanted to have out of this show." - John Stephens

rough translation of what he says in the interview

Usually it is very difficult for the breakout stars to find next big works.
But it's not the case with Ben McKenzie.

"I'm happy the fans of each 3 show are different. Funny story, when I starred in The O.C., they told me not to go to the mall where bunch of teen girls hanging around. When Southland, not to go to airports, many police officers are there. Now Gotham, I stay away from comic book stores."

Even avoiding these 3 places, people say hi to him all the time when he walks down the streets.
But that never makes him arrogant, why can he stay down-to-earth?

"I was grown up in a strict family in Texas. I was taught morals and ethics since I was a small kid.
My affectionate parents are always my good role models and both my grandfather who went to the war and my football coach told me what is right and what is wrong."

Ben rent a house in LA (NOT TRUE), as Gotham is filming in NY, he's moving over there before its 2nd season starts.
"I like quiet life, reading and enjoying nature. I like the stories about American South such as Tennessee Williams and Flannery O'Connor. I often write, my mom is a poet, I think she's inspired me. Never want to let her read what I wrote!"

He's 37, looks young but he says "I'm old inside."
"Sometimes I feel I'm already 37, sometimes I'm still 37. Life is long. I'm trying my best and want to be like Paul Newman, a man of dignity, talented and dedicated to charitable activities. He is always my hero."

After Bridgit Pike (guest star Michelle Veintimilla) rejoins her brothers, a new spark of courage will ignite within her as she chooses to take control of her future. Meanwhile, Kringle and Nygma’s relationship will take a new step and Penguin and Galavan will continue to battle for control of Gotham City’s underworld.
Guest stars include: Carol Kane as Gertrud Kapelput, Clare Foley as Ivy Pepper, Chelsea Spack as Kristen Kringle, Natalie Alyn Lind as Silver St. Cloud, Paulina Singer as Josie, Ian Quinlan as Pinkney, Lucas Salvagno as Martinez, Michelle Veintimilla as Bridgit and Leo Fitzpatrick as Joe Pike.
