The actor posted an image of his Gotham script as early as last Monday, and then wrapped photography last night on the sixteenth episode of the first season, titled "The Blind Fortune Teller."

In the comics, the Graysons, better known as the Flying Graysons, are a family of traveling acrobats who are murdered in a mob hit during a performance. Orphaned and without any surviving family, a young Dick Grayson is adopted by Bruce Wayne who eventually trains him to become Robin, the Boy Wonder and sidekick to the Caped Crusader.
