When “Gotham” returns to Fox with new episodes on Monday night, there is going to be a part of this story that feels like a very different show. After all, gone is the Jim Gordon who was spending his days working alongside Harvey Bullock at the Gotham City Police Department. In his place, you have a somewhat-weathered man who has gone through quite a bit, and is working now at Arkham Asylum as a punishment for his noble (but not in the eyes of the Mayor’s office) acts.
Is there a silver lining here? It feels that way, given that he and Dr. Leslie Thompkins (Morena Baccarin) waste very little time hitting it off. In a sneak peek over on Entertainment Weekly, Thompkins introduces herself to Gordon, and we learn that because she spends most of her time with the female patients, the two did not have an opportunity to meet until now.
For the most part, Leslie is extremely complimentary of the one-time detective, even to the point that the patient she is treating tells the two to “get a room.” It’s not entirely clear whether or not the show plans to go there with the character, but the romance between Gordon and Barbara Keen was not entirely well-received. Given that she has now went back to her ex with the MCU, it is very hard to tell just where this story is going to go from here.
If nothing else, at least rejoice that the “Firefly” star is on board the show. Many would be thrilled to have her!
