When “Gotham” season 2 returns next month, it promises to satisfy its fans even more with its storyline.
Prior to the midseason break, James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) joined forces with Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) to look for Theo Galavan (James Frain) and stop him. However, Gordon decided he cannot compromise potential loopholes and thus, shot Galavan dead.
In the midseason premiere, however, Gordon will have to face the consequences of his actions. According to executive producer Bruno Heller, “He’s certainly compromised. He’s stepped over that moral line. Jim Gordon has made a terrible mistake, which he’s going to pay for,” noted the preview indicated on TV Guide.
Nonetheless, the biggest issue he will have to face is his relationship with Dr. Lee Tompkins (Morena Baccarin). Heller added, “Jim’s essentially an honest man, so the need to have honest relationships does betray him in the end.”
Aside from Gordon, Penguin will also return with more action ahead of him. He will encounter Butch Gilzean (Drew Powell), as well as Dr. Hugo Strange (B.D. Wong). According to Heller, Dr. Strange will have a “profound” impact on Penguin that will make him a “new man in many ways,” noted the same preview on TV Guide. Dr. Strange will be one of the new villains in season 2, along with Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow).
In addition, Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) will finally find out the man behind the death of his parents when “Gotham” season 2 returns from its break.
Season 2 of “Gotham” will resume on February. 29 at 8 P.M. EST.
Meanwhile, in the Wizard World New Orleans last weekend, a fan asked actor McKenzie about his character’s mustache. In the comic book version, Gordon is known to have a mustache, but McKenzie has gone with two seasons without one.
He joked and assured that he is working on it, noted Comic Book. He explained, “I forgot to ask that question when I signed on for the part. I never asked if I had a mustache or not; I just sort of assumed that being a younger guy, that was not going to happen… And then, I got cast and we were about to shoot and all of a sudden the Internet lit up with ‘Is he going to have a mustache?’ And I had a moment of panic where I was like ‘That’s really not a good look on a guy my age.'”
McKenzie hopes he will have it four to six seasons from now, which implies that the television series is expected to stay and have more seasons ahead of it.
