Fox’s Gotham season five episode two found Jim Gordon needing to rely on help from Barbara in order to save some of Gotham’s children. In exchange, Barbara wanted Jim to help kill Penguin. Poison Ivy, known as The Witch by the locals, re-enters the story and heals a horribly injured Selina. The cure makes Selina feel different, and one of the episode’s finale scenes confirms Selina’s transforming into Catwoman. The preview for season five episode three even shows her hissing!
Up next, Gotham season five episode three titled “Penguin, Our Hero.” Episode three airs on January 17, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT.
The cast of the comic book-inspired series’ final season is led by Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon. Donal Logue is Detective Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee is Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor is Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, and Erin Richards is Barbara Kean. David Mazouz plays Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova is Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith is Edward Nygma/The Riddler, and Chris Chalk plays Lucius Fox.
The “Penguin, Our Hero” Plot: With the creation of Haven as a safe place for refugees, Gordon hopes to stop the gang fighting in Gotham. Meanwhile, Selina is determined to find Jeremiah (guest star Cameron Monaghan) and she convinces Bruce to help her. Then, Penguin goes to Haven to reclaim his staff.
The Gotham Plot:
Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer and writer Bruno Heller and executive producers Danny Cannon and John Stephens, Gotham follows the rise of Det. James Gordon (McKenzie) through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
Beginning in Winter 2019, Gotham will air its fifth and final season, wrapping up this beloved series in a farewell event that will focus on Bruce Wayne’s (Mazouz) transformation into the caped crusader.
