They say it usually gets worse before it gets better…and that is just what’s happening to the city of Gotham.
Last week we saw the arrival of Captain Nathaniel Barnes played by Michael Chiklis, who is trying to do what Gordon couldn’t. He’s getting rid of the bad cops and fighting back against the villains that are rising in their city.
Theo Galavan (Frain) is one of those villains. After teaming up with Penguin, we can only imagine the damage those two will cause, especially once Galavan decides to run for Mayor. But more importantly, why is he so obsessed with Bruce Wayne? He’s just a kid!
On this week’s episode titled “Scarification,” Galavan and Penguin join forces with a dangerous new family in Gotham. The Pikes are a bunch of arsonists and have basically forced their own sister Bridgit to do their dirty wood. Bridgit Pike (Michelle Veintemilla) is set to portray the female version of Firefly from the comics. Tonight’s episode marks the beginning of a two-week origins story for the pyrotechnic villain.
Gotham airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX
The official synopsis for “ScArification”:
“Galavan and Penguin join forces with a dangerous family in Gotham. Then, as the rivalry between the Waynes and the Galavans resurfaces, Gordon struggles to maintain order in the city.
