The wait is finally over. Gotham is back tonight and it sounds like the bad guys are ready to rise.
But before we get reacquainted with Gordon, Penguin, Bruce and Alfred, we thought we would give you a quick refresher about where we left our favourite heroes and villains at the conclusion of season one. (Warning…spoilers obviously lie ahead!)
When we last left Gotham…
The once-again-Detective Jim Gordon who had moved on from his ex Barbara Kean found a new love interest with GCPD medical examiner Leslie Thompkins.
While Gordon was involved in an epic Gotham gang showdown, Leslie was helping to counsel Barbara, who had been murderously brainwashed by serial killer The Ogre. Barbara admitted that she killed her parents, and then tried to kill the Leslie.
She ended up in Arkham Asylum…with mother murdering, future Joker candidate, Jerome.
Thanks to his obsession with his co-worker Kristen Kringle, GCPD forensic scientist Edward Nygma continued his decent into Riddler-madness.
He killed Ms. Kringle’s abusive cop boyfriend.
He then became psychotic when he found out that Ms. Kringle was onto him, thanks to a uncharacteristically sloppy riddle he left in a forged disappearance note.
Young Catwoman Selina Kyle found a new home as part of Fish Mooney’s gang.
During the epic final battle of power-hungry Gotham gang leaders, Fish killed the condescending Don Maroni after he mocked her. A gun fight ensued.
Gordon got head crime boss Carmine Falcone away from the battle and into safety. He told Jim that he has officially retired from the crime world. Yea, right.
Penguin and Fish battled to the death on the roof of a Gotham high rise. Penguin pushed Fish off the building.
He declared that he was now “The King of Gotham.”
Along with help from Alfred, young Bruce Wayne continued his investigation into the mysterious corruption taking place at Wayne Enterprises and how it was tied into the murder of his parents. He was preparing for a battle.
After a tip from Lucius Fox, Bruce learns that his father had a secret identity, and was hiding what appears to be a cave-like room behind the bookshelf in his office. Yep, future Bat Cave!
Now bring on the new season!
Gotham season 2 premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET on CTV.
