In addition to all the other Batman villains that have been introduced on Gotham, which already include Penguin, Edward Nygma, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman, Mad Hatter will be among the newest. Looking for his sister, Jervis Tetch will seek the help of Jim Gordon to try and find her. Tetch is a slightly off-kilter hypnotist who, like many others on the show, is at the end of his rope of sanity.
Fox has released a new description for the third episode, titled “Mad City: Look Into My Eyes”.
Hypnotist Jervis Tetch/Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel) arrives in Gotham to search for his sister, Alice (guest star Naian Gonzalez Norvind), and hires Gordon to help find her. Meanwhile, Penguin decides to run for mayor and Bruce’s doppelganger begins to channel him, causing some confusion around town.

The Indian Hill escapees are still on the loose and it’ll probably be a while before they’re tracked down. The show has maintained solid ratings, but has recently been criticized for recently casting actress Maggie Geha in place of Ivy Pepper, who originally played Poison Ivy and aging her up.
The show stars Ben McKenzie, Morena Baccarin, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Camren Bicondova, and more.
Gotham’s third episode, “Mad City: Look Into My Eyes”, will air on Fox on Monday, October 3 at 8/7c.
