The power of Alice Tetch’s blood is starting to show in Barnes (Michael Chiklis). In him, it has amplified his desire to not only catch criminals, but bring them to justice. Even if that means death. On the hunt for one criminal, Barnes finds another with a dismembered body, and decides, an eye for an eye, to dismember the criminal himself. After the realization of what he’s done hits, Barnes visits Jervis Tetch (Benedict Samuel) at Arkham, and asks him if there is a cure to Alice’s blood, which Jervis answers with no, but Tetch asks Barnes if the voices has started yet. And they soon do, when a criminal that the GCPD had put away is released. At Mario and Lee’s (Morena Baccarin) engagement party, Barnes takes it upon himself once again to eliminate one more criminal from Gotham.

While Barnes is becoming a murderer himself, another well established murderer is finding the thought of sharing difficult. Oswald (Robin Lord Taylor) Is hating hard on Isabella, and when Ed ask Oswald to help him break things off with her, he is too eager to jump on board. But Isabella is resilient, and refuses to leave. Convinced that Ed is just scared that he’s going to hurt her because of her resemblance to Kristen, Isabella decides a little change in her appearance has to be made. As her way to test Ed’s control, Isabella alters her appearance to look exactly like Kristen. Much to Ed’s shock, and horror, the two share a kiss, which leads to a brief choking action by Ed, to more kissing and Isabella leaving alive. Until Oswald finds out that Ed, and Isabella are still together, and Isabella has proven that she’s not going anymore. Not without a little force. Which Oswald is more then willing give. Oswald has Isabella’s car breaks cut, and she is forced to coast down a hill, as the looming threat of a train descends on her.

We saw Barnes starting to become the very people he has sworn to put away, and Oswald moving back into his crazy Penguin ways. But each will have it’s own consequences. Barnes will have to join the criminals in prison when caught, and Oswald will lose a friend, and gain an enemy when Ed finds out what he has done.
