Fox has released four very interesting clips from this Monday’s episode of Gotham, as Barbara Keane looks set to enact her revenge on former flame Jim Gordon. How things play out between Jim and Barbara promises to be very interesting here, but the character seems completely beyond redemption at this stage. While her actions could be blamed on mental illness, it’s more than a little difficult to imagine this being the woman the future Commissioner ends up marrying and having children (one of whom is Batgirl) with.
While three of these four Gotham clips revolve around her, the other puts the focus on the budding relationship between Theo Galavan and Bruce Wayne. Their dynamic has so far been very interesting, and how the future Batman’s interactions with this villain end up shaping the man he one day becomes is so far proving to be one of the most compelling parts of season two.
Here’s the synopsis of the episode – titled “Tonight’s The Night” – courtesy of Fox:
Galavan sends Barbara after Jim Gordon, while he tries to make a business deal with Bruce Wayne. Barnes and Bullock are hot on Barbara’s trail, and Nygma has a run-in with a familiar face in the all-new “Rise of the Villains: Tonight’s the Night” episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, November 9th on FOX.
Still a huge improvement on the first half of season one, Gotham has so far managed to maintain the momentum from the well received latter half of the show’s debut year. As of right now, the series shows no signs of slowing down either, and these clips make it clear that Monday’s episode will be another must-watch instalment.
