Synopsis for "The Scarecrow"
Gerald Crane targets another victim, James Gordon and Harvey Bullock investigate his background, and discover that he was a biology teacher whose wife died in a fire accident; that he was too scared to rescue her from. Believing that fear is a human flaw, he harvested adrenal glands in order to use them to create a fear serum that makes people see their greatest fears, hoping that it will help them face and overcome them. Meanwhile, Fish Mooney is abducted by the mercenaries, and taken to a rowdy prison-like area. Bruce Wayne goes on a treacherous hike by himself. Falcone tells Cobblepot to renovate Fish's nightclub as his own before speaking to Maroni about him, to which Maroni agrees to let Cobblepot live in exchange for having a judge placed in his pocket. James and Harvey track Crane down to his home, where after injecting his son Jonathan with the fear serum, he is killed in a gunfight. Jonathan is rushed to the hospital afterwards. Mooney kills the leader of the prisoners named Mace and then takes his place upon finding out the prisoners are being harvested for organs. At the opening of Oswald's (the newly-renovated Fish Mooney's), Don Maroni arrives with his entourage and promises Cobblepot that once Falcone dies, he will kill him. At the hospital, the doctor says to Gordon that due to the amount of serum injected into him, Jonathan may never stop seeing his greatest fear; which in his case are animated scarecrows.
