While Gotham season 5 episode 5 may not air until we get around to Thursday, January 31, there’s a lot to look forward to! Take, for starters, a chance to finally see a good bit of Shane West on the show.
What do we know about West’s character? Well, over time he is going to become the villain Bane, or at least the show’s version of him. Yet, in the early going he may not actually be altogether evil at all! He could be coming on board the show in order to help people, and that has wondering what happens to Eduardo Dorrance that eventually turns him into this character. It is at least a good reminder that within the Gotham world, a lot of villains don’t start off that way. They transform as a function of circumstance and precisely what they are up against.
Below, CarterMatt offers up the official Gotham season 5 episode 5 synopsis with some other news as to what’s coming up:
A military task force, led by Eduardo Dorrance (guest star Shane West) is called in to provide relief to Gotham. Meanwhile, Nygma looks for answers from Penguin, who leads him back to Hugo Strange (guest star BD Wong). Then, Bruce is concerned about Selina’s recent behavior in the all-new “Pena Dura” episode of GOTHAM airing Thursday, Jan. 31 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (GTH-505) (TV-14 L, V)
Of course, there’s also certainly plenty of reason for excitement when it comes to getting Wong back on the show. Hugo Strange is such a fascinating villain, and he is the sort of character who we think could’ve turned up in so much of a larger capacity if there were more seasons and greater opportunities. We certainly think that he could also be connected to either Dorrance or Selina Kyle, given the fact that this is the sort of guy who trades in experiments like nobody else. We already know that Selina is changing — we’ve seen some evidence of it already. She was able to be healed thanks to the actions of Ivy and with that, she’s so much more like Catwoman than ever before.
Basically, what we’re trying to say here is that as this season of Gotham progresses, it’s going to be so much more like the Batman comics than ever before. There are going to be some great battles, fascinating characters, and also utter chaos in the city of Gotham.
