Fox’s Gotham comes to an end with season five episode 12 airing on Thursday, April 25, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT. The comic book-inspired series is wrapping up multiple storylines presented over season five, one of the series’ most engaging seasons and the season that marked the full evolution of Bruce Wayne into Batman.
The events transpiring in “The Beginning…” finale catapult the characters 10 years into the future, and the batch of photos released in support of episode 12 show most of the key characters as their older selves, with the exception of Bruce Wayne/Batman and Selina Kyle/Catwoman. The trailer teases Batman in action in his full Batsuit, and it also shows Catwoman attempting to steal a piece of jewelry. However, we don’t see Batman or Catwoman’s faces or frontal full body shots in the short teaser for the series’ finale.
The cast of the 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/Batman, Camren Bicondova is Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith is Edward Nygma/The Riddler, and Chris Chalk plays Lucius Fox.
Cameron Monaghan returns as Jeremiah Valeska/The Joker for the finale.
The Beginning…” Plot: The series flash-forwards 10 years into the future, as Bruce is set to return to Gotham for the opening of the new Wayne Tower. A series of crimes leads Gordon to believe Penguin and The Riddler are up to their old tricks. However, when Bullock is framed for a murder, Gordon begins to piece together an even more sinister plot targeting the city, and a new figure emerges from the shadows to be the hero Gotham desperately needs.
