In the all-new episode “Wrath of the Villains: Mad Grey Dawn,” airing Monday, March 21 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on Fox, Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bullock (Donal Logue) investigate a trail of clues left in a museum robbery, which, unbeknownst to them, were left by Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse. Meanwhile, Gordon’s past comes back to haunt him when an anonymous person threatens to expose his hand in Galavan’s murder. Also, Penguin’s (Robin Lord Taylor) visit to some old friends leads him to meet his father, Elijah Van Dahl (guest star Paul Reubens), and Bruce (David Mazouz) practices his street smarts.
Later this season, villains continue to invade “Gotham”, as Arkham Asylum and the mysteries it holds take center stage, and Hugo Strange’s (guest star BD Wong) wild experiments create even more chaos and legendary villains.
“Gotham” is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), “Gotham” follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
