Gotham Season 2 Previews: The Rise of the Villains

by Clarissa / July 23, 2015

There was a large shift in power in the season 1 finale of Gotham when Oswald Cobblepot (a.k.a. the Penguin) killed Fish Mooney and became the new king of Gotham.

But while the mob war from season 1 seems to be over, Penguin isn’t the only villain Jim Gordon will be dueling with in season 2. In a preview for the new season, we see a slew of villains that will plague Gotham, including Tabitha Galavan, a.k.a Tigress (Gracepoint’s Jessica Lucas) and her big brother Theo (True Blood’s James Frain), Penguin, Edward Nygma, Victor Zsasz and Jerome, a.k.a. the Joker (Shameless’ Cameron Monaghan).

Meanwhile, young Bruce Wayne and Alfred discovered a secret room in Wayne Manor in the season 1 finale that was used by Bruce’s father. What was Thomas Wayne hiding from his family? Bruce and Alfred are going to find out when they find a mysterious door and keypad.

Gotham returns on September 21 on Fox.
