Fox Releases Synopses of First Three Gotham Season 5 Episodes

Fox has released the synopses for the first three episodes of the final season of Gotham, and it sounds as though things are only going to get weirder as the series winds down.


“Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) face the chaos Gotham City has become. Their mission to keep the city safe becomes more complicated, as the villains who survived the attack on the city begin to resurface and claim various territories. Meanwhile, Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) grapples with how to deal with her uncertain future. – airs January 3, 2019”


“Gordon and Bullock (Donal Logue) investigate a location where several kids have been kidnapped. Barbara (Erin Richards) proves to be an unlikely ally to Gordon. Meanwhile, Bruce looks into an alleged witch with healing powers for Selina (Camren Bicondova), and Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) deals with demons of his own. – airs January 10, 2019”


“With the creation of Haven as a safe place for refugees, Gordon (Ben McKenzie) hopes to stop the gang-fighting in Gotham. Selina is determined to find Jeremiah (guest star Cameron Monaghan) and convinces Bruce to help her. Meanwhile, Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) goes to Haven to reclaim his staff. – airs January 17, 2019”

As we’ve seen in some of the previews, Selina has what appears to be cat eyes. Our first thought was that Hugo Strange was the one to repair her back after being shot by Jeremiah, but it appears now it may be the result of witchcraft.

Well, this is Gotham after all.

The final season of Gotham debuts on Fox on Jan. 3, 2019.
