Gotham will be returning for a third season this fall and we will find our beloved characters in very different places compared to previous seasons. Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon), opened up recently about how much his character will be changing throughout the course of season three and how season two will still be impacting him.
“He left Season 2 cleansed in a way by Hugo Strange’s psychological deconstruction of him, and he went off to find Lee. We start Season 3 with him finding her but, as with most things in Gotham, it doesn’t go well. So he feels at sea.
We move forward in time about six months, and he’s back in Gotham, and the monsters that were unleashed at the end of Season 2 are now running amok, and Gordon is a bounty hunter. Gordon is no longer with the GCPD. He is chasing these monsters down for a price, and collecting that money. He’s sort of disillusioned with the whole thing.”
McKenzie also addressed what the relationship will be like between Gordon and Bruce Wayne.
“Well, as we start the season, Bruce is really on his own journey, and Gordon is on his own. Their paths will merge later on, and they’ve sort of reset their relationship a bit. Gordon doesn’t feel as much a responsibility to Bruce to figure out his parents’ killer, because it seems to all, not have been tied up, but effectively Indian Hill was the breeding ground for a lot of this stuff, and that had a lot to do with what ultimately manifested in Bruce’s parents’ murder. But the Court of Owls is really behind the whole thing, and that’s where we’ll get to in season three. That’s really the force that’s behind everything.”
Gotham’s origin story continues to unfold, and as the show enters its third season, the stakes will be higher than ever! Super Villains are continuing to push Gotham City toward the brink, and while Jim Gordon remains at the forefront of the fight against crime in this dangerously corrupt city, how far will he go to save Gotham? Throughout season two, Gordon’s moral compass wavered more than ever, creating both personal and professional dilemmas in his life as villains emerged from the city’s darkest places, including Arkham Asylum’s secret experimental lab, Indian Hill. Bruce Wayne also began to unravel some of Gotham City’s — and his family’s — deepest secrets, leading him to discover that Wayne Enterprises could be behind some very dangerous schemes poised to tear the city apart.
