One of things that does make Gotham stand out as a series is that everyone has ever-evolving agendas. In season 4, you’ll see that from both Jim Gordon and Tabitha Galavan.
In the new video below via the fine folks from DC Comics, you can see Ben McKenzie, Jessica Lucas, executive producer John Stephens, and a few others set up some of the stories you’ll be seeing coming up on the series. We’ve got some assorted highlights from the video for you below.
Jim Gordon – He realizes the influence that Oswald Cobblepot has, and as a result of this he really wants to figure out a way to loosen his control over Gotham. This is where new character Sofia Falcone (Teen Wolf alum Crystal Reed) comes into play. Just from her last name alone, you’re going to be very aware that she a great deal of power in the city … even if she hasn’t been seen that much. While teaming up with the Falcone family may not be the best thing in the world given their history, it’s still better than Oswald running things! Sometimes you have to pick the best of the two evils.
Tabitha Galavan – Lucas describes in the video that she’s going to take on Selina Kyle as a protégé in the season, and will teach her how to use a whip and become more trained in combat. Let’s just hope that she can trust Selina, given that she’s had some trouble with her other allies. She cares about Butch, and the good news is he’s technically still alive! As for the bad news…
Butch Gilzean – Well, Butch’s real name is Cyrus Gold, and the better-known name for Gold is Solomon Grundy. In the wake of what happened at the end of season 3 we’re going to see this character become the Batman villain that so many have known over the years. Drew Powell notes that the fifth episode of the season is going to be his real coming-out party, and he’s spent the better part of the summer training and preparing for the role.
Ra’s al Ghul – With Bruce Wayne becoming more of a vigilante, you better prepare to see a good bit more of this character. In the video, there is an opportunity to hear a little bit more about this character’s history. Let’s just say, for now, that he’s just as mysterious as ever — even more so than he was presented to be back when the character was used on Arrow over on The CW. Outside of the Joker, Ra’s al Ghul is one of Batman’s biggest villains and they have a very interesting relationship in the comics. While they are never on each other’s side, there’s a mutual respect between these character’s and at one point Bruce Wayne becomes romantically involved with one of Ra’s daughters (Talia al Ghul).
