Spirit of the Goat | Gotham | vlog #6

Ten years ago, a masked killer calling himself the "Spirit of the Goat" targeted the first born of Gotham City's elite. The Goat targets a girl named Shelley Lawson, which leads a younger Bullock and his partner Detective Dix (Dan Hedaya) to try and rescue her. When Lawson is found dead, they find the killer, Randall Milkie, who claims that "Randall Milkie is dead" as he tries to attack them. Milkie is shot down by Bullock after Dix falls through a trap door. Ten years later, Harvey finds Robert Hastings' daughter, Amanda, murdered by someone with the same "Goat" motive. Meanwhile, Montoya and Allen ask a dock worker if he witnessed Gordon shoot Cobblepot. Gordon arrives at the crime scene as he and Harvey head off to get some details from Robert Hastings on who he may have been worried about. During the autopsy on Amanda, Gordon and Bullock learn that someone is using Milkie's M.O. of leaving a penny under the victim's scalp to target their victims. Because this part of Milkie's M.O. was never officially released, Bullock is worried that the new Goat killer is actually not a copycat after all. Alfred is concerned that Bruce, as one of the firstborn of Gotham's elite, may be in danger and suggests leaving town to avoid becoming a target, to which Bruce refuses. Gordon and Bullock visit a paraplegic Dix at a medical facility to ask him about Milkie and the pennies that are part of the M.O. Dix states that Milkie might've had an unknown accomplice in the murders. Later that night, the Goat targets Ember Copley before she can meet her parents at the marina. Upon arriving at the site where Milkie was killed a decade ago, Gordon frees Ember while Bullock goes after the Goat and fights him. With help from Gordon, Bullock subdues the Goat. The Goat was revealed to be a janitor, Raymond Earl, who had access to keys to his victims' houses. Gordon tells Bullock that they need to get info on any possible accomplices to find a connection between Earl and Milkie, who never actually met. Barbara learns that the MCU has a warrant out for Jim's arrest. Upon learning this, Gordon surrenders to Montoya and Allen. Bullock visits Mr. Hastings where he questions his hypnotherapist, Dr. Marks, about her clients Earl and Milkie. Bullock comes to the conclusion that Dr. Marks was behind the hypnosis of the two people that turned into the "Goat" as an act of therapy for Gotham due to the greed of the Gotham's elite. After Dr. Marks is apprehended, Harvey reports this revelation to Sarah Essen when they are alerted about Gordon's arrest. Bullock agrees with Gordon that he didn't murder Cobblepot as Montoya and Allen try to arrest him as well. During a dispute between the MCU and GCPD, Cobblepot arrives, which prompts Bullock to lash out against Gordon.

Viper | Gotham | vlog #5

Bruce plans to find a way to speak to the board members of Wayne Enterprises to know their connections of the Arkham Project. A new drug called "Viper" is hitting the street where the user gains super-strength while having to consume milk and cheese to replace their used up calcium and would kill them if the calcium is not used. Maroni plans to rob a casino owned by Falcone. While Gordon and Bullock look for supplier Stan Potolski, Gordon is brought to Maroni when Cobblepot reveals that he used to work for Mooney and wanted confirmation of Carmine Falcone wanting Cobblepot disposed of. Afterwards, Gordon learns from an old professor of Stan's that he plans to distribute the "Viper" drug (which turned out to be an earlier version of Venom) at a charity event held by WellZyn and Wayne Enterprises which Bruce and Alfred are attending. Stan takes the "Viper" drug canister to the rooftop in order to flood the ventilation as he broadcasts into the charity event. Gordon and Bullock arrive where they arrange for the evacuation. When Gordon shoots the canister upon making it to the roof, Stan gets exposed to it as Bullock arrives. Stan then jumps off the rooftop as he suggests that they check out a warehouse. A Wayne Enterprise operative calls a mysterious person that the detectives found nothing and will take action when they get too close. Gordon and Bullock arrive at a warehouse where they find nothing. Outside the casino, Cobblepot and Maroni await for Cobblepot's contact in the casino. As Mooney makes plans to conspire against Falcone, a disguised Liza visits him in the park where she shares her opera music with him.

Hangin' with the Imasofats

It's been a while since I last hung out with the Imasofats, so yesterday, my girlfriend Renee and I went down to spend the day with them. We went to Peekskill Brewery and then back to their house. A lot of beer was drank and food was eaten. It was a lot of fun. We reviewed my homebrew, so look for that video on their channel.

Arkham | Gotham | vlog #4

At Gordon's apartment, Cobblepot states that the upcoming war will be for Arkham. Meanwhile, Councilman Ron Jenkins is approached by a hitman (Hakeem Kae-Kazim) who uses a telescope device with a blade in it on his aide and then kills the councilman with the same device. Gordon learns of the Arkham Plan when he visits Bruce Wayne, where Alfred mentions that Falcone and Mayor James are backing the project. Maroni's ally, Councilman Zeller, has been abducted by the same hitman who killed Jenkins and is burned alive at Arkham Asylum. Gordon tells Bullock and Essen that the Arkham District is a battleground between Falcone and Maroni. Upon visiting a prisoner who knows the hitman, Gordon and Bullock look for Richard Gladwell at an office building. As Gordon heads to the back, Gladwell works on his steel spike. Before Gordon could take action, Bullock calls him away to show him the files on Jenkins and Zeller, enabling Gladwell to flee. They find a paper that reads C.L.M. After an attack on Maroni's restaurant by three masked men, Cobblepot is promoted to restaurant manager by Maroni, following his action of saving the money and the death of the previous manager. It was discovered by Bullock that the real Gladwell was dead for five years and that the hitman was using his name. Gordon tells Bullock that they must find the hitman before the mob war erupts. Upon Gordon figuring out that Mayor James will be the next target, he goes to protect the Mayor. Gordon ends up in a fight with the hitman until Bullock arrives to back him up. The hitman is then gunned down by Bullock and Gordon before he can finish his job. Meanwhile, Mooney pairs up two possible females for her nightclub job opening against each other where a female named Liza wins. Mayor James holds a press conference about the Arkham Plan. Falcone will handle small housing developments and Maroni will be refurbishing the Arkham Asylum. The three masked guys that attacked Maroni's restaurant were working for Cobblepot, as they are killed by his poisoned canoli.

The Balloonman | Gotham | vlog #3

Detectives Gordon and Bullock track a vigilante targeting corrupt citizens and strapping them to weather balloons – his latest victim being a rich con man named Ronald Danzer. Detectives Montoya and Allen question Gordon about what really happened to Cobblepot, who returns to town in order to get revenge on Fish Mooney. He gets a job at mafia don Sal Maroni's restaurant, being befriended by Maroni himself. "Balloonman" strikes again by targeting corrupt GCPD member Lt. Bill Cranston. Bullock and Gordon later trace the remaining missing balloons to Carl Smickers' apartment, making him a suspect. Mooney arranges for Falcone's comare Natalia to be in an accident. Bullock interrogates Smickers, who mentions never seeing the face to whom he gave the remaining balloons. After Cardinal Quinn's death and finding a set of keys in the body of Lt. Bill Cranston, Gordon has an idea on who Balloonman is. Upon arriving at the old juvenile facility, Gordon and Bullock find another balloon, but get ambushed by Davis Lamond (Dan Bakkedahl), who holds Bullock at gunpoint and mentions the crimes of Danzer, Cranston, and Cardinal Quinn. He further reveals it is corruption like Mayor James' plan to relocate non-adoptable street kids to a prison that ultimately drove him to become the Balloonman. Bullock gets free and manages to attach the final weather balloon to Lamond with the intention of releasing the balloon, but Gordon grabs onto it and orders Bullock to shoot the balloon. After a short debate with Gordon, Bullock shoots the balloon. Before Lamond enters an ambulance, he warns Gordon that more vigilantes will follow in his path. At his home later, Gordon receives a surprise visit from Cobblepot.
