The Fire Rises In Gotham’s “This Season” Preview
by Erik Amaya
As is traditional, a “This Season” preview aired alongside the season premiere of Gotham last night. And like the movie style trailer the series released last week, this one is fully of bonkers stuff leading up to a fight between Bruce (David Mazouz) and Jeremiah (Cameron Monaghan) above a vat of infamous chemicals. But the teasing images also suggest an unlikely reunion between Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Barbara (Erin Richards), Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) confronting Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) over Ed’s reappearance and more than one shot of Bane (Shane West) as the fire rises.
It also features some of the footage from the movie trailer regarding Bruce and Selina’s (Camren Bicondova) latest falling out. When I spoke with Mazouz in December, he suggested they may weather this storm, but it will be in “classic” Bruce and Selina fashion. Considering their trajectories in the season ahead, it will be interesting to see how the show sets up the Batman/Catwoman detente.
Gotham airs Thursdays on Fox.
