Things in Gotham are grinding to a halt, courtesy of a returning Jerome. While the crazed and seemingly back from the dead Cameron Monaghan is the show's focal point for the time being, no one has waved the white flag in the ongoing feud between Jim Gordon and Carmine Falcone.
Executive producer of Gotham John Stephens recently spoke to ScreenerTV about where Gordon finds himself these days, and what he can expect once this whole Jerome business gets put to rest. Spoiler alert, but things aren't going to get easier.
"We play that [feud] in two different ways. We play it very directly and heavy in the first episode when we come back with the storyline between Jim and Falcone. The repercussions of the killing of Mario actually are through the end of the year."
Jim Gordon (played by Ben McKenzie) is responsible for killing Falcone's son, and that's not something you just let go. You can bet that this will be a big part of the Gotham for many episodes to come.
On the run from Gordon and Bullock, Dwight (guest star David Dastmalchian) tries to revive Jerome (guest star Cameron Monaghan) and, in turn, activates his acolytes around Gotham City. Meanwhile, Selina’s mom's (guest star Ivana Milicevic) intentions in Gotham are revealed, and the power play between Penguin and Nygma escalates as Barbara's plans are set in place.
The regular cast features Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Morena Baccarin as Leslie Thompkins, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/the future Riddler, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean, Maggie Geha as the future Poison Ivy, Michael Chiklis as Detective Nathaniel Barnes, and Benedict Samuel as Mad Hatter.
Gotham is based upon DC characters and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), Danny Cannon (the CSI franchise, Nikita), John Stephens (Gossip Girl) and Ken Woodruff (The Mentalist) serve as executive producers on the series.
