Gotham Season 4A Recap and 4B Preview

Gotham has so many crazy characters, plot twists, and unexpected departures from anything you might expect that it's easy to get lost. Fortunately, this recap will bring you up to speed with the first half of season 4.

Penguin, Riddler, Selena, Barbara, Solomon Grundy, Ra's Al Ghul, Sofia Falcone, Lee Thompkins and uh ... oh yeah ... Jim and Bruce ... these are the people of Gotham, and these are their stories!

In the back half of season 4, we can expect a lot of fresh battiness, and not just from Bruce's costumed vigilantism. There's a new Poison Ivy in town (that's three actresses, so far!). Peyton List, who previously played a DC Comics villain in The Flash as Captain's Cold's sister, takes over the role, finally bringing full-on meta powers to the character. There's also a blooming bromance between Penguin and Jerome, who may or may not be the Joker, but is definitely doing a great Heath Ledger voice.

You do you, Gotham.

'A Dark Knight' falls on Gotham March 1st as season 4 continues.


Detective Jim Gordon navigates the corrupt world of Gotham City.
