Gotham finally returned to Fox last night, introducing plenty of new threats for Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock to contend with. Now, a first look at next week’s instalment has been released, and it reveals that Mr. Freeze is about to take aim at the Gotham City police department.
For more details on what to expect, here’s the official synopsis for “A Dead Man Feels No Cold”:
As Gordon, Bullock and Barnes continue the search for Victor Fries (guest star Nathan Darrow), they are forced to look to his wife, Nora (guest-star Kristen Hager), for help. Meanwhile, Penguin is introduced to Hugo Strange (guest star BD Wong), and Alfred reveals some crucial information to Bruce about his parents’ murderer in the all-new “Rise of the Villains: A Dead Man Feels No Cold” episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, March 7th on FOX.
The decision to bring Mr. Freeze into Gotham so soon has proved to be pretty divisive with fans. While it’s great to see such a larger than life character in the series, this is yet another bad guy whose story is playing out years before Bruce Wayne becomes Batman, and that just doesn’t feel right.
Regardless, the second season of Gotham has definitely been on a role, so here’s hoping they find a way to make Freeze’s story work somehow.
