As Fox’s Gotham continues to gain momentum, details concerning future episodes are coming in. Below you can read the official synopsis for the fifth episode, titled “Viper”. Is it just me or does it sound similar to the way the Vertigo drug was introduced on Arrow? I’m also wondering if this will have a possible connection to the introduction of the Scarecrow, whom we know is likely making an appearance on the show in the not too distant future.
Gordon and Bullock search for the source of a new street drug that causes euphoria then death. Meanwhile, Oswald Cobblepot works his way deeper into Maroni’s (guest-star David Zayas) inner circle and Fish Mooney continues to plot against Falcone in the all-new “Viper” episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, Oct. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
