Countdown To Gotham Part 3: We're Almost There!

We’re almost there! Just one more day before the Gotham Season 2 premiere, and we’re here to deliver the last bits of news before the show starts! Content/trigger warning for death, violence, and blood.

Before we delve into the news for season two, there’s a couple pieces of news regarding last season. First, you can now own Season One of Gotham on DVD and Blu-Ray! Besides the original 22 episodes (and an extended version of the pilot), you also get over 2 hours worth of special features, including a gag reel, deleted scenes, character profiles, multiple making-of featurettes, and a short documentary about how Oswald Cobblepot’s rise to power symbolizes the strategic game of chess.

Second, for you collectors out there, six of your favorite Gotham characters will be released as Pop Vinyl figurines this October.

Onto the news for Season Two! Lots of new promos and sneak peeks have been released lately. Check those out below.

General Promos/Teasers:

Character Specific Promos:
Sneak Peeks from the Season 2 Premiere:

From these previews, as well as some recent interviews, we can glean a lot about the upcoming episodes of Gotham.

We can see more of Eddie’s struggle with his alternate self.


A possible romance between Barbara and Tigress.


Barbara and Jerome causing havoc at a magic show that has apparently been taken over by their crew.


We also see glimpses of Lee hiding in a morgue, as well as being held captive at the magic show.

Mark Margolis will be returning as the blind fortuneteller, Jerome’s father, Paul Cisero in episode 3.


We can see more of Jerome burning down the children’s school bus.


And it looks like we’ll even get to see the Baby Batman and Baby Joker together for the first time, as Jerome seems to be holding Bruce Wayne hostage as well.


We can also see some other interesting things, such as Tigress fighting Jim Gordon.


Tigress and Oswald.


And what appears to be Oswald’s new disguise.


Robin Lord Taylor recently revealed that his mother will be the target of the Galavans this season. He told that “Theo and Tabitha disrupt the entire power structure in Gotham. They make a big move in Season 2 that throws everyone off. They are very reminiscent of what Oswald did in the first season. It's almost like Oswald is getting a taste of his own medicine. Someone comes in with an agenda that no one was expecting to see, and it just throws everyone off balance.” It'll be interesting to see what Oswald does now that his mother's life is in danger.


It has also been confirmed that we will see more of Oswald Cobblepot and Ed Nygma together this season. Robin Lord Taylor (via comicbookresources) said, “What I can say is their relationship deepens. Because their relationship grows, I think you can infer it is something beyond the G.C.P.D….They are still figuring each other out. Both characters are so brilliant, but in such different ways. They are totally different, yet they are both outsiders. There's camaraderie, yet opposition, which I think is very exciting.”

Actress Morena Baccarin posted a very interesting picture of her character and Oswald to Twitter recently.


And Killer Croc has been announced as another villain that will be appearing in Season Two.


In other news, DC head Diane Nelson told Variety they are keeping DC shows separate from the DC film universe, and that Gotham has absolute creative freedom.

The official synopses for episodes two and three have been released, and read as follows:

Episode 2, Knock Knock: “On the heels of his reinstatement, Gordon is thrust onto the high-profile case tracking the deadly inmate escape from Arkham Asylum. Meanwhile, Galavan plans his next move, while Bruce asks for help from his father’s old friend to unlock the secrets in his office, and Nygma asks out Kristin Kringle on a date.”

Episode 3, The Last Laugh: “Gordon and Bullock track down a nemesis from the past, leading to a standoff between Jerome (guest-star Cameron Monaghan) and Gordon. Meanwhile, a magic show at the Gotham Children's Hospital gala turns into a hostage situation in the all-new "Rise of the Villains: The Last Laugh" episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, Oct. 5.”

The first three or four episodes will focus on Jerome and his gang, which appears to be called the Maniax. The two episodes after that will be a two-parter about new villain Firefly.

Here’s what we know about the Gotham episode schedule so far:

Ep. 1: Damned If You Do – Airs Sept. 21.
Ep. 2: Knock Knock – Airs Sept. 28.
Ep. 3: The Last Laugh – Airs Oct. 5.
Ep 4: Strike Force – Estimated airdate: October 12.
Ep 5: (title unknown - Part 1 of a Firefly two-parter) Estimated airdate: October 19.
Ep 6: By Fire (Part 2 of a Firefly two-parter) Estimated airdate: October 26.
