The Plot: Season four of Gotham will witness the emergence of the criminal landscape for which Gotham City is best known, with Jim Gordon (McKenzie) and Harvey Bullock (Logue) at the forefront of the fight against the most depraved and unhinged villains. While Gotham City fights for normalcy, a new hero will rise, as Bruce Wayne (Mazouz) begins to assume responsibility for the city’s well-being.
The “Pax Penguina” Plot: Gordon fears Jonathan Crane (Tahan) is still alive and back in Gotham, when The Scarecrow’s signature MO is used in a series of robberies. Meanwhile, Penguin’s “licensing” of crime in the city backfires during the grand opening of his new Iceberg Lounge. Also, in the aftermath of his encounter with Ra’s Al Ghul, Bruce begins his vigilante watch in the all-new “A Dark Knight: Pax Penguina” season premiere episode of Gotham.
