Gotham Season 4 Is Giving Us The Hero Gotham Deserves

Gotham returned last week, and it showed it was going to keep up the crazy level that it started in Season 3. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) is running the city, while Gordon (Ben McKenzie) can't let that stand. And Bruce (David Mazouz) is taking on his night job. It's interesting to see how much of the Gordon vs. Cobblepot we'll get before everything else starts crashing in.

The new trailer shows us Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) with her new hair and matching arsenal. We also see that Gordon is going to meet Ra's al Ghul (Alexander Siddig), but in his disguise as a 1940s archaeology professor. Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk) gives Bruce his bulletproof suit. There will be more from Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow), and we get out first glimpse of the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) post-snow cone treatment… and he doesn't look very happy.


If you watch through to the end you get to see the above for a brief moment, showing both Bruce and Gordon watching over the city — but what looks to be opposing each other.

Oddly, what we don't see are any real images of the Scarecrow other than one quick flash — makes me think he won't be around much at all this season. And, not surprising, we still haven't seen Butch Gilzean (Drew Powell) as Solomon Grundy, which I doubt we'll get a look at before he pops up in an episode.

Gotham Season 4 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
