We pick up the story of The CW Network series “The Flash,” right where it ended in the second season premiere, with a strange man showing up unannounced at STAR Labs telling Barry Allen his world’s in danger. He tells those gathered that his name’s Jay Garrick and he emanates from a parallel earth, where he’s known as The Flash. According to him the Singularity opened up a portal between the dimensions and the Black-Hole sucked him in and deposited him on this earth without any powers, or a way to get home.

He then shares a tale of his last night on his earth, as he battled another super-speedster named Zoom, perhaps the fastest man alive and thoroughly evil. Zoom had bested him that night and was just about to kill him when the portal opened up and took him to our earth. He’s been stuck in Central City for the last six months and during that time he boned up on Team Flash.

He then mentions that Barry and Joe found a murder victim named Al Rothstein in a nuclear-plant, then Barry fought another Al Rothstein that they dubbed the Atom-Smasher. Garrick tells them that the Atom-Smasher’s from his earth and was sent to our dimension by Zoom to kill Allen.

We leave STAR Labs and head out into the night air, when we see a portal open and two figures emerge from it. One of the men’s trying to catch his breath and asks where are they. The other man’s Zoom, wearing a suit similar to the Reverse-Flash’s costume. He tells the other man that if he wants to go home he needs to kill the Flash.

Barry’s skeptical of Garrick’s story and has Caitlin run Jay through a battery of tests to se if they can prove if he’s making the story up or telling the truth. While Caitlin’s tests show his blood pressure’s consistent with a runner’s, the rest of the results prove inconclusive. However she tells Barry and Iris that she gave Jay a lie-detector test without his knowledge and he passed with flying colors.

Allen still doesn’t trust him and until they acquire more proof they hold Garrick in a Meta-Human cell. Jay says that while he understands Barry’s skepticism, he’s cooperated fully and he just wants to help him and his team. Just then Cisco alerts Barry through the com-device that a fire’s broken out.

The Flash shows up at the blaze and quickly puts it out by rotating his hands at super-speed, creating enough of a wind to extinguish the flames. Flash turns around and sees the man that arrived with Zoom, he’s another Meta-Human that can turn his skin-cells into sand and he starts attacking the hero. Flash hears Cisco on the com-device asking if he’s alright, which causes him to focus and race back to STAR Labs.

Garrick tells them the Meta-Human’s known as the Sand-Demon and he comes from his Earth and that he’s battled him a few times. He tells Barry that he can teach him how to defeat the villain but Allen rather rudely tells him thanks but no thanks.

Team-Flash gathers together and Joe West can’t grasp the concept of a parallel earth, so Professor Martin Stein attempts to explain it to him. He says there’s been a theory for years that our world’s just part of a multiverse, one of an infinite number of earths existing in parallel dimensions. Each earth’s somewhat like ours, but each one has their differences. He says that although Joe’s a detective on our earth he could be a physicist in another dimension. West says he’s more confused than ever and heads back to the station.

Detective West gets approached by a young female uniform when he gets back to the station. She introduces herself to him and tells him her name’s Patty Spivot and she understands he runs the Meta-Human Task Force. He tells her the Task-Force got dissolved and she says that’s too bad as she wants to join it. She majored in science and was top in her class in marksmanship. West asks her if she’s aware what happened to his partner and she tells him she knows Eddie died on duty as did Joe’s previous partner, but the partner before that’s still alive and just transferred. She says she just wants a chance to have an interview, he tells her she just had her interview and she didn’t get the job.

Joe meets Barry at the waterfront warehouse where the fire took place and Allen tells him that the place’s too porous for him to obtain a fingerprint from. As they’re talking about the case, Officer Spigot walks over and asks Barry if he’s Barry Allen, when he confirms this she tells him  she’s his fan. She loves his forensic reports and says she’s read every one of them.

She then says something the two might have interest in. She’s gathered a vial of the sand left behind by the Sand-Demon and found a metal pipe which has his prints on it. Joe tells her she did good work but she’s still not getting the job.

Barry heads back to STAR Labs with the vial of sand while Joe goes to the station to run the print. Garrick tells them it’s not actually sand it’s the Meta-Human’s skin-cells. Cisco goes into the lab to examine it and when he touches it he’s transported in his mind back to the battle between the Flash and Sand-Demon. He had a similar experience last week with the Atom-Smasher, is this part of the ability Wells told him he has last season? He confirms that the sand’s actually skin-cells, but Barry still doesn’t trust Jay.

West’s identified the print as to belonging to Eddie Slick, an arsonist who served a stretch in prison. West tracks him down but Slick sees him following and sprints off. Joe turns the corner to find Slick’s on the ground handcuffed with Officer Spivot sitting on his back. They caught Eddie Slick, but not the Eddie Slick they’re looking for.

West questions the suspect and he’s got an alibi for the previous night when the fire got set and tells Joe he’s crazy when he says Eddie’s a Meta-Human. Without any cause to hold him West and Spivot release him, Joe tells him to get out of his sight and not to return. As Slick walks away he makes some comment about Meta-Human’s being tricky and then tells Patty he’s impressed that she grabbed another pipe and got her own set of Slick’s prints. Just then they see Eddie walking towards them and Joe says he thought he told him to get his ugly face out of here. This however isn’t the same guy they just released, this is the Earth-Two version the one known as the Sand-Demon. He knocks West out and grabs Patty as a hostage.

Joe contacts Barry at STAR Labs and Team-Flash tells Barry he’s got to trust Jay Garrick, but Allen remains obstinate. Iris asks everybody else to leave the room and then asks Barry why he’s afraid to trust anybody. Barry says that he trusted Wells and because of that countless people died including Eddie and Ronnie. Iris says that Barry’s afraid to trust Garrick as he reminds him of Wells, but he needs to get past that and start trusting again. She says your team will do whatever you want but if you lose trust in them, they’ll stop trusting you. Garrick’s released and starts briefing the team on Sand-Demon.

He says that Slick’s got himself hidden out in a very moist atmosphere such as a greenhouse. When Barry asks him how he’ll defeat an opponent who’s got the ability to slip through his fingers, Jay says he’s going to hurl lightning bolts at him from the speed that the Flash produces.

Slick has holed-up in an abandoned greenhouse and has Spivot tied to a chair. She asks if he’s so powerful, why’s he building a concussive bomb to take out the Flash? He says he’s going to kill the Flash, the bomb will kill her. Patty then berates him for thinking he’s special and he somehow got chosen. She says he was just in the right place at the right time and that all his powers have done is accentuate his worst qualities. Eddie tells her that soon she and Flash will get a taste of his worst.

Team-Flash’s frantically searching for where Sand-Demon could be hiding, when Cisco excuses himself and heads back down to the lab where the sand sample’s at. He touches the sand again and this time he sees the conversation between Slick and Patty and he’s able to identify the greenhouse and sees the percussive bomb.

Jay’s playing Obi-Wan Kenobi to Barry’s Anakin Skywalker trying to teach the younger man how to slow down and direct the lightning bolts at his target when he throws them. Barry says he just can’t do it and Jay tells him he believes in him. Just then Cisco tells them he’s figured out where Slick’s hiding and since Jay said he usually creates a diversion, he thinks Sand-Demon maybe building a concussive bomb. Garrick says that Sand-Demon used one against him once and that Cisco’s likely spot-on.

They need a diversion and since Jay’s fought Sand-Demon before, they think he’d be the perfect diversion. Barry asks him if he’s got his suit and Jay says except for his helmet. Cisco asks if it’s a kettle-helmet with two gold wings and it’s the helmet that entered STAR Labs in last season’s finale. Jay’s incredibly pleased to have it back, he tells them it was his father’s helmet that he wore when he fought in the War Of The America’s. Although Cisco wants to hear all about it, Barry stresses this isn’t the time.

Cisco hacks into the Greenhouse close circuit cameras and tells the duo to enter. Slick hears the whoosh from the Flash arriving, but he’s shocked to be standing face-to-face with the Flash from his world, who he thought was dead. The two trade insults and then Sand-Demon starts to attack Garrick. While he’s preoccupied Allen removes Patty from the chair before the concussive bomb can explode, the blast knocks out Garrick but Slick turns to sand and absorbs the blast without difficulty. Sand-Demon readies himself to battle Flash, but the Scarlet Speedster just starts racing around the room faster and faster. He then grabs a lightning bolt, slows himself down and aims it right at his opponent. The lightning-bolt causes Sand-Demon to turn to glass and he falls to the ground and smashes into particles.

Back at the station Joe apologizes to Patty for getting her involved then asks her why she wants to join the Task-Force so badly. It turns out that her father got shot in the face by one of the Mardon brothers before they became Meta-Humans. When she learned somebody so evil had such power she knew she had to do everything in her power to stop them. West says to her Monday morning at 8:00 am and she asks what he’s referring to. He replies that’s when you join the Task-Force, Detective.

Right after Spivot leaves West hears a woman’s voice coming down the stairs saying hello Joseph, it’s been a long time. The voice belongs to a very attractive woman about Joe’s age, he uneasily greets her and asks why she’s there. She says she’s been calling him for months and wanted to see him and their daughter. I believe that this is Mrs. West from Earth-Two, a world where Joe died and she lived on. One where they might have produced a son named Wally, instead of a daughter named Iris.

Stein realizes that Cisco’s got some sort of ability that causes him to see visions. Cisco makes him promise not to tell anybody, he thinks this is the power Wells told him he gave him and he fears the powers evil. Just then the two scientists get the test results they’ve sought using exotic matter.

They run upstairs and tell the rest of the team that although they closed the Singularity, Central City contains 52-separate portals, the largest one being in STAR Labs. Stein starts to explain in further detail, when he suddenly has difficulty speaking and collapses on the ground.

The scene changes quickly and we see a bullet-train pass in front of us. We’re on Earth-Two as a young woman guides a group of grade-school students through STAR Labs. We see a retro-looking rocket-ship displayed, something that looks like it came from a Flash Gordon short in the forties. Suddenly the elevator doors open and the guide’s face breaks into a huge smile. She says children we’re in for a real treat, may I introduce to you the founder of STAR Labs and the savior of Central City, Dr. Harrison Wells. Wells looking very sharp in a blue-suit sans tie walks out of the elevator and says hi kids.

The Story Continues Next Tuesday Night at 8:00pm on The CW.

There are moments, events, in all of our lives, that haunt us all our lives, the pain doesn’t fade with time, or how successful we become, even the number of toys we acquire in our existence. In the middle of the night, when we’re alone with just our thoughts, those memories return, just as sharp and bright as the moment they occurred. For most of us, those moments involve minor transgressions, that we’ve never forgiven ourselves for. However there are some folks that we interact with daily, that hide heinous and unspeakable acts and eventually the guilt and weight of bearing that secret, overcomes them.

This week’s episode of the ABC series “Forever,” deals with that subject on a number of levels, involving the crime Detective Jo Martinez and New York City Medical Examiner Henry Morgan, attempted to solve, as well as secrets that Morgan and his companion Abe, keep from others. Henry, of course is used to carrying secrets, as he’s hidden the fact that he’s over 200-years-old from the world, except Abe.

The episode opens at a gala banquet, honoring a young selfless doctor, named Tyler Forester, awarding for his efforts in his free clinic, in the inner city and throughout the community. He’s introduced to the audience, by his best friend since they were nine-years-old, Carter Pilson, however Forester sitting at his table, looks more agitated than proud sitting at his table waiting to approach the dais. When Pilson introduces the doctor, he whispers in his ear to do the right thing, as he always does. The applause starts and Dr. Forester’s face fills the screen.

The next scene’s in a skid-row apartment in Harlem, the award-winning doctor’s apartment, who got killed shortly after the ceremony in his apartment, by a blow to the back of his head from the trophy he received. Detective Martinez and Doctor Morgan, investigate the scene, as Henry tells the detective that the apartment lock’s broken from the inside, so Forester likely knew his murderer and let him in his apartment. Martinez questions why Forester lived there, as his father’s a famous Wall Street Billionaire?

When they get the body back to Morgan’s office and examine Forester’s corpse, they’re shocked to see large Roman Numerals tattooed across his chest. They meet with Forester’s father, whose clueless about the tattoo, then tells the officers that his son distanced himself from he and Tyler’s mother, since he graduated high school. He wouldn’t accept their money, he got completely wrapped up in his work, even donated his meager salary to charities, some the Corporate Titan, never heard of. He then tells them to join him the next morning at his son’s memorial service, and possibly speak with others that knew Tyler better.

Morgan and Martinez arrive at the service and notice three young people, about Tyler’s age with the same class ring as Tyler wore. One, is Carter Pilson, who introduced Forester at his banquet, the other young man’s named Paul Gould, (whom Martinez believes looks high) and the young woman’s an attorney named Cassandra Mueller. All three were best friends with Forester in high-school and there’s a framed picture of the four of them at the memorial, dated June 10, 2005. Martinez and Morgan, start questioning Gould, after Jo identifies herself as a detective, but Gould’s pretty sketchy with details, to their questions. Mueller then approaches and asks if she can help them, and Martinez identifies herself, the attorney says she doesn’t think Mr. and Mrs. Forester would appreciate their presence and Morgan tells her, that Mr. Forester invited them to try to get answers. Cassandra then says she’s a lawyer and Martinez asks if Gould needs an attorney, but Henry spirits them out of there.

Back in the chapel, Pilson approaches them and apologizes for his friends behavior, and says they’re still shaken by Tyler’s death. Henry asks Carter if the date June 10, 2005, has any significance and Pilson turns ashen, says no and excuses himself. Henry realizes that the date on the picture’s the mirror opposite of the tattoo on Forester’s chest.

Mr. and Mrs. Forester got divorced five-years earlier, so she wasn’t present during the interview with Tyler’s father. She told Martinez and Morgan that her son changed irrevocably, after the summer of 2005, Tyler seemed haunted and always sad. He got accepted to Harvard and planned to go there, but after the summer went to State University and paid his own way.

Henry heads to Abe’s shop and asks him his deepest secret. Abe admits when he first opened the shop, he sold a fake antique for the price of a real one. He’s ashamed to this day, but without that sale, he’d gone out of business.

Back at the station, Jo and Henry find out, that they’ve recovered data from Tyler’s cellphone, specifically a rather cryptic video. The pair watch, as Forester apologizes to the parents of a Robert Meachem, for what “we,” did to their son, but stops talking when Paul Gould enters the frame. They put out an all points bulletin on Meachem and reported missing on June 12, 2005 and was never found.

Martinez and Morgan lead a search near where Meachem lived for his remains and Henry finds the spot, due to a particularly lush, young, tree. They find the bones and a DNA match confirms the bones are Meachem’s. Confronted with the evidence, all of Forester’s classmates admit to running over Meachem and burying him, but all three deny killing Tyler.

Henry and Jo meet with Meachem’s parents, who bring a photo of their son wearing a cap from the local service station, where they said he worked part-time and walked to the night he went missing. Morgan realizes that the owner of the gas station, witnessed the accident, had received payoff checks by Forester, (one of the unknown charities) and since Forester was going public the hush-money train, would stop running. He tried to convince to stay quiet and keep paying, but they argued and the station owner killed the doctor.

The pair head to the gas station, ask about Meachem and then ask to look at the owner’s bank records. He pulls out a drawer from his filing cabinet, but pulls out a pistol, shooting Morgan in the arm. Henry tells Martinez he’s fine and she chases the owner down but freezes with her gun and the two hold each other at gunpoint. Morgan tells the guy to shoot him instead and when he aims at Henry, Martinez shoots him and arrests him.

The Meachem’s are finally at peace knowing the fate of their son and Forester’s classmates will all serve time for their crimes.

Unless you’ve cut yourself off from society for the past six months, you’re aware that the new Fox series “Gotham,” revolves around Gotham City, before the days of Batman and the central character of the show’s the future Commissioner of the GCPD James Gordon’s, whose a young detective in this telling. However, although the man who’ll wear the cape and cowl one day, young Bruce Wayne’s gone through some major growth since the series debuted with the boy watching his parents get gunned down in the street, while he stood by their side.

Watching his parents die in front of him, traumatized the boy and if not for the promise from the young Detective Gordon, that he’d bring the killer of Bruce’s parents to justice, the boy could’ve fallen into an extended funk. However, he respected Jim so much, he followed his example and in the last two episodes, Bruce’s coming into his own as a very perceptive, boy detective. With his parents pet project, renovating the Arkham Asylum, now turning into a profit center for two Crime-Bosses, Wayne’s suspicion about the people running Wayne Enterprises grows, with every misfortune that affects the city. Bruce’s determined to speak to the members of the board that run the corporation, as he’s got a laundry list of questions to ask them. Wayne Enterprises, figures heavily in this episode, but there’s many more story-lines intertwined.

One of those plots involves our old friend Oswald Cobblepot, now managing Crime-Boss Sal Maroni’s restaurant. Maroni’s pumped he intimidated city officials to let him be involved in the Arkham project, a deep blow to his rival the more powerful Carmine Falcone, but he still wants to send Falcone a message. He talks with one of his henchmen Frankie, at the restaurant about robbing Carmine’s nightclub, but Frankie says the job will cost Maroni some soldiers. He looks up and sees Cobblepot listening and chews him out, calling him a dishwasher in a suit, but Maroni’s interested in what his restaurant manager’s thinking.

Cobblepot tells Maroni that his friend’s the janitor at the club and he believes his friend could get Maroni’s guys in the club via a tunnel-system that runs beneath the nightclub. Frankie dismisses the idea immediately, but Maroni’s intrigued and tells Oswald to sit at their table. Sal asks Cobblepot his name and he responds that his staff call him Penguin. Maroni realizes Cobblepot’s not pleased with the name, but he tells his employee its a good name and it fits him. He tells Penguin that he sees a bit of a player in him and Cobblepot’s ego gets the best of him. He tells Maroni his real name and that he worked for Fish Mooney, before she attempted to get him killed. Sal smiles and laughs, then takes his manager by the back of the neck and slams his head into the table.

A busker, sits on a doorstep with his guitar case opened and a sign that reads “Why Lie? Need money for drugs.” The musician either doesn’t know how to play the acoustic, or just being lazy as he’s just strumming out of tune chords. A guy puts some coins in his case, but this disheveled man watches him from across the street. He finally walks over to him, and drops a vial filled with green liquid in his case. The guitarist picks up the vial and sees two snakes etched on the vial, plus the words breath me. He tries yelling for the man to come back, but he keeps walking, so the musician opens the vial and breathes from it. He’s immediately effected, his body convulses with either pleasure or pain.

The next scene the busker heads into a convenience store and opens up the dairy case, pulls out a gallon of milk and starts chugging. The store manager yells that the guitarist will have to pay for the milk and he replies “Don’t vex me mortal,” and continues drinking. The manager whose three times the size of the musician, jumps out from behind the counter, with a Louisville Slugger in his hands, which the Busker grabs and then turns it into sawdust with his hands.

Gordon and partner Harvey Bullock, are getting some burgers off a “Roach-Coach,” when an alarm goes off and Jim gives chase, Harvey reluctantly following him. They enter the convenience store and see the floor littered with milk bottles, they shout to find somebody and they find the manager trapped in a hallway, that the musician blocked off. He tells the cops the guy had super strength and literally pulled the ATM off the wall and carried it above his head.

Gordon and Bullock canvass the neighborhood with a picture of the suspect and finally a young woman recognizes him as her friend Benny. When Gordon asks if she knows where he lives, she asks for twenty bucks, Jim gives her a ten and gets the address. They find the alley Benny lives in and the streets filled with empty milk bottles. Benny comes out and asks for help, he felt great, but now feels terrible and asks the detectives to find the guy who gave him the drug. They ask who he is and Benny only remembers that the guy’s ear’s mangled. Bullock approaches Benny and the busker’s instincts take over and he throws Harvey, then Jim like rag dolls. He picks up the ATM over his head and starts to throw it at them, when he collapses the ATM crushing him. Gordon says to Bullock he hopes the drug doesn’t hit the street.

Bruce’s setting up a time-line on the walls of the family library, starting with the death of his folks and including pictures of the Mayor of Gotham City, Falcone and Maroni. Alfred enters the room and tries to distract Bruce by suggesting a walk, but the boy’s too focused to leave his project. He then tells the family’s butler and his surrogate father, that he believes that Wayne Enterprises got involved in Falcone and Maroni becoming part of the Arkham project. Alfred replies that’s the way business’ conducted in this era and Bruce asks Pennyworth, if his parents did business that way? Alfred replies they did not.

Gordon’s worst nightmare comes true as the man with the green liquid hands vials out to people throughout the city, leading to dozens of people feeling god-like and possessing super-strength for a few hours, before collapsing and dying.  A riots taking place at the precinct house that Jim and Harvey work out of, with groups of uniforms trying to subdue the victims and get them into cells. As the place gets even more frantic, Maroni’s henchmen Frankie, tells Gordon they’re taking a little ride to discuss Oswald Cobblepot. Gordon’s got to protect his reputation so he goes with Frankie into the back seat of a car, and a black hood’s put over his head.

When the hood comes off he’s at Maroni’s restaurant, Sal and a bloody and beaten Penguin sitting at a table. Sal tells Gordon that Penguin told him a story and that if his story matches, all’s well, if not they both die. After the Penguin’s hauled off to the kitchen, Jim recounts how Falcone set up a patsy to take the fall for the Wayne murders and Gordon called Fish Mooney on it. Cobblepot, told two officers from Major Crimes Unit about the setup and Falcone ordered Jim to kill Oswald and dump his body off the docks, but Gordon didn’t shoot him. Maroni’s all smiles now and tells his guys to bring Penguin back out, then kisses him on the cheek and says he’s their new secret weapon, someone from inside Mooney’s gang.

Gordon goes back to the station and Bullock starts busting his chops, but Jim says he had a personal matter to deal with. Harvey asks if Barbara’s broken up with him and Gordon acknowledges she did, but that happened in the previous episode, not in the last two hours. Precinct scientist Ed Nygma’s analyzed the drug from Benny’s remains and he’s fascinated with the results. The drug gives its users a euphoric feeling and super-strength, by tapping into the body’s calcium supply, which is why all the victims consume so much milk. Eventually the drug drains all the calcium from the victim’s body, their bones collapse and they suffocate. Jim asks Nygma if he’s seen similar substances and the scientist, tells him that the drug’s so complex, that it came from a state of the art lab, the best of them being WellZyn, owned by Wayne Enterprises. Ed says that Wayne Enterprises would never allow that kind of work at their facility, but Gordon says they might as start at the top.

Back at stately Wayne Manor, Alfred walks into the library in the late morning, finding papers scattered everywhere and Bruce passed out on the couch. Pennyworth opens the drapes, waking the boy then asks him what Bruce’s mother would think of the mess. He says he should throw the whole lot in the fire, but Bruce says no fire. He tells the boy, that Wayne Enterprises will hold a charity luncheon the next afternoon and Alfred took the liberty of putting them both on the guest list. The boy’s excited as he plans to talk to the board members at the function.

Carmine Falcone’s called a meeting for all the gang leaders that report to him, about the Arkham project, saying they didn’t lose anything. He then says Maroni’s gang didn’t make gains either, but one of his men, Nikolai whose a Russian immigrant says they have to strike back at Maroni. Falcone tells him they aren’t making any moves and that Maroni’s a fool. Nikolai says in his country they say even a fool can bite a king if he has teeth. Then Mooney rips him a new one for doubting Falcone and the Crime Boss ends the argument and the meeting.

Mooney heads back to her club and starts working with her “secret-weapon,” a young woman named Liza, she recently hired. She wants Liza to memorize an aria and learn to say things in a motherly tone. Mooney sees improvement and tells her employee it’s time to talk about her hair.

WellZyn executive Taylor Reece, comes to the precinct house and meets with Gordon and Bullock about the new drug and she denies any involvement from her lab. Jim then asks if a man with a mangled ear rings a bell and her face turns white. She tells him that’s former employee Stan Potolsky, whom they fired in April, due to mental-illness issues. He and a supervisor argued and Potolsky tried to cut his own ear off. He left without cleaning out his desk or taking any of his belongings and Reece tells the detectives she’ll arrange for a courier to deliver all his property to the station.

Gordon and Bullock search though Potolsky’s belongings and they find nothing of any meaning, until they find a framed picture of Stan with a philosophy professor from Gotham State, Isaac Steiner. They visit the elderly professor at the school and he tells them Potolsky’s his former student and the two are still friends. Jim tells the professor about the drug Stan’s distributing throughout the city and Steiner knows all about it. Potolsky’s job at WellZyn was producing a drug that gave American soldiers super-strength, so they could rip a combatant apart, with his bare hands. The first serum was Viper, the drug Stan’s passing in the city, that had a rotten side-effect, the user dies within hours. Potolsky then created a drug that worked Venom, but he started realizing how immoral the project was and refused to participate so Wayne Enterprises fired him.

The professor defends Stan’s actions as a way of calling attention to the evil people behind Wayne Enterprises, then grabs a vile of Viper from his desk, inhales it and throws Harvey across the office. As he goes to attack Bullock again, Gordon shoots him until he falls then asks where Stan’s heading that afternoon, but Steiner dies before responding. However Gordon quickly realizes that Potolsky’s heading to the charity lunch thrown by Wayne Enterprises.

Alfred and Bruce enter the event and after looking around, Pennyworth points out Molly Mathis, who worked closely with Thomas Wayne and Bruce goes to introduce himself. She tells him she’s happy he’s joined them and all of Wayne Enterprises feels his loss. Bruce then asks if she’s on the Board Of Directors and she laughs, telling the boy she’s middle management and the board doesn’t attend these functions. He tells her his suspicions of the board allowing Falcone and Maroni to get involved in the Arkham project and she dismisses his statement as impossible. He asks her if she could set up a meeting between him and the board and she smiles and says she’ll try her best.

Jim and Harvey arrive at the function, Bullock takes inside the building while Gordon takes the roof, where he finds Stan, connecting a huge tank of Viper to the buildings HVAC unit. (That seems to be popular this season, as “Forever” featured the same plot device last month.) Jim attempts to talk Potolsky out of it, but the scientist’s too far gone to deal with and tells Gordon to shoot him. Instead the detective shoots the tank which causes all the substance to escape from that hole dosing Stan, but Gordon shields his mouth and nose. Harvey arrives up stairs and Gordon tells him not to shoot, then tries to get Stan to give him info on Wayne Enterprises. He screams check warehouse 39, then jumps off the roof and dies amidst the traffic far below.

The two detectives check out Warehouse 39, but it’s empty, so they get in their car and drive away. As they leave we see Molly Mathis on her phone in a car across the street, saying the pair found nothing. She says they don’t pose a threat and ends the call.

Back at Wayne Manor, Bruce gets pleasantly surprised when he realizes Alfred’s now helping him in his search for corruption at Wayne Enterprises.
