Gotham Season 4: Is Penguin A Bird Or A Mammal?

Fox has released two clips from tonight's episode of Gotham. Tonight's episode is called A Dark Knight: Fear the Reaper and is described as, "Gordon is forced to face his inner demons when he tries to bring in Jonathan Crane to prove that the GCPD is still powerful." Yup, it's a big-time Scarecrow episode.

The first clip below shows Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bullock (Donal Logue) finding the house where Crane (Charlie Tahan) mixed the latest batch of fear toxin. They find the chemicals and his asylum uniform and then are attracted to the scarecrow outside. That's where they discover one of the gang that broke him out, strung up, and petrified. He tells Gordon that the Scarecrow is coming.

The second clip takes place after the first when Gordon and Bullock take the guy into custody. Oswalt Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) arrives with the press, asking where Crane is. When Gordon tells him that Crane's whereabouts are currently unknown, Penguin starts going off about how worthless the GCPD is. Bullock then interrupts, asking if a penguin is a bird or a mammal. When Oswalt tells him a bird, Bullock holds up the news paper headline to the press that reads, "Penguin or Chicken?" It shows the picture from the first episode of the season when Penguin had been hit by the fear gas and was pleading with Gordon to protect him. Nice to see Bullock step up to protect the GCPD reputation.

Gotham airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
