Earlier today, FOX provided us with exclusive photos of Nathaniel Barnes as the Executioner, and now the network has released a clip that helps to explain how the by-the-book-cop-turned madman goes through his latest and final transformation.
The sneak peek begins with Kathryn introducing herself to Barnes, who is strapped to a chair. She tells him that they share the same goal: "for Gotham to be judged and the guilty punished." That piques Barnes interest and he offers to help her pass judgment right after she frees him. However, she only needs what's inside of him: the Alice Tetch virus. And brings in Hugo Strange to extract it.
Gordon discovers the weapon the Court of Owls will use to destroy Gotham, which leads him on a dangerous path as he tracks it down. Meanwhile, Kathryn (guest star Leslie Hendrix) and Temple Shaman (guest star Raymond J. Barry) reveal their next move to Bruce, and Ivy comes to Selina’s aid.
