Poison Ivy Returns In New Gotham Photos


Now that Gotham‘s fifth and final season is officially underway, we join Bruce Wayne on the final leg of his journey to becoming Batman. Of course, a host of villains are guaranteed to be along for the ride, with newcomer Bane joining returning favorites such as Penguin, Riddler and Scarecrow. Oh yeah, let’s also not forget about Jeremiah Valeska lurking in the shadows.

When it comes to this show’s take on Poison Ivy, Ivy Pepper, we knew she’d be showing up at some point this year. If you’ll recall, season 4 found yet another pseudo-scientific way for her to evolve, as Peyton List became the third actress to fill the role during the prequel series’ history.

Thanks to a freshly released gallery of images from this week’s episode, “Trespassers,” we can tell you that she’ll continue her quest to make Gotham go green in just a few days. Seen below, Ivy appears in only one of the photos provided, so it’s kind of hard to figure out how she’ll fit into the story.

When it comes to what’s going on elsewhere, it’s apparent that desperate times call for desperate measures, because Jim Gordon is seemingly teaming up with Barbara Kean. Aside from Oswald Cobblepot, Babs’ has the most storied past with the future Commissioner, but the guy knows when to compromise for the sake of the greater good.

For more info, be sure to check out the official synopsis:

Gordon and Bullock investigate a location where several kids have been kidnapped. Barbara proves to be an unlikely ally to Gordon. Meanwhile, Bruce looks into an alleged witch with healing powers for Selina, and Nygma deals with demons of his own in the all-new “Trespassers” episode.

Gotham airs on Thursday nights on Fox.
