Jim is trying to find the Haven bomber when a squad team drops in and starts shooting the men who held their guns on him. One attacks him but the commander shoots the man, and removes his mask. Jim recognizes the man as Eduardo, an old army buddy of his. Jim asks what he's doing in Gotham, Eduardo jokingly saying that he's paying him back from the time Jim saved him. Jim says that he would have won, but is glad that Eduardo is there. Eduardo is glad as well.

  • Eduardo orders his men after Jim.
  • As Eduardo is being saved by Walker, he asks about Jim


The ship is a minor pairing in Gotham, due to not existing till the final season of the show, Season 5. Jim and Eduardo had instant chemistry that had fans attached to the pairing within Eduardo's first appearance. Shippers mostly draw from several of Eduardo's statements, which could be interpreted to be sexual innuendos.
