Season 3 of Gotham will be one of change for a variety of characters, but for some, it's a return to familiar territory.
For Harvey Bullock, being Captain has been an honor and a welcome challenge, but now it's time to get back to what makes him happy, and in his words, it's cracking skulls. In a new promo for the upcoming season, Bullock doesn't mince words.
"I did a good job, being Captain. Even liked it, but I am more than happy to get back to the business of cracking skulls, especially the freaks from Indian Hill."
Gotham also has a new bounty hunter stalking the streets, Bullock's former partner Jim Gordon. It should be interesting to see the two interact in their new roles. The show continues to take these well-known characters in interesting directions, one of the many reasons it remains so popular.
With Season Two's thrilling conclusion, Detectives Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in this dangerously corrupt city. Throughout the past season, Gordon's moral compass wavered more than ever, as villains emerged from the city's darkest places. With the help of Hugo Strange (guest star BD Wong), a brilliant psychiatrist secretly conducting horrifying experiments for Wayne Enterprises' black-ops program, Indian Hill, familiar faces arose, including Azrael, formerly Theo Galavan (James Frain); Mr. Freeze (guest star Nathan Darrow); and Fish Mooney (guest star Jada Pinkett Smith). Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne, with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, Alfred Pennyworth, and his ally at Wayne Enterprises, Lucius Fox, found out there are more secrets to uncover regarding the Waynes' murders.
Heading into Season Three, Gotham will continue to follow the evolving stories of the city's most malevolent villains: The Penguin; Edward Nygma/The Riddler; Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman; and Barbara Kean. Gotham also will dive into the origin stories of The Mad Hatter and the Tweed Brothers, and will peel back the curtain on the Court of Owls.
Gotham returns to FOX on September 19th.
