‘Gotham’ Episode Guide (Oct. 10): Penguin Wants to Make Gotham Safe Again

“Mad City: New Day Rising” (10/10/16) – Penguin gains power as he narrows in on the nomination for Mayor of Gotham. Meanwhile, Gordon turns Alice (guest star Naian Gonzalez Norvind) into the GCPD for the bounty.

Also, Bruce and Alfred race to find Bruce’s doppleganger after learning he’s assumed Bruce’s identity in an all-new episode of “Gotham” airing Monday, Oct. 10 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Naian Gonzalez Norvind as Alice Tetch and Leslie Hendrix as Kathryn.

The origin story continues on Season Three of “Gotham,” and the stakes are higher than ever, as Super-Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City.

Season Three will peel back the curtain on the infamous criminal organization known as the Court of The Owls. With the Indian Hill escapees on the loose, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) must take matters into his own hands as a bounty hunter in Gotham. He makes it his mission to find Hugo Strange (guest star BD Wong), the mastermind behind the horrifying Indian Hill experiments, and Fish Mooney (guest star Jada Pinkett Smith), one of Strange’s subjects. Meanwhile, GCPD Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) and Captain Nathaniel Barnes (Michael Chiklis) remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in the monster-ridden city. Also, Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), and former Wayne Enterprises employee, Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk), discovers there are still more secrets to uncover regarding his parents’ murders.

As the city sinks deeper into chaos, “Gotham” will continue to follow the evolving stories of the city’s most malevolent villains: The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor); Edward Nygma/the future Riddler (Cory Michael Smith); Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman (Camren Bicondova); Barbara Kean (Erin Richards), Tabitha Galavan/Tigress (Jessica Lucas) and Butch Gilzean (Drew Powell).

The series also will catch up with the future Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha), who, after an encounter with a monster from Indian Hill, finds herself reborn as a young woman who’s harnessed the full power of her charms; and will dive into the origin stories of Jervis Tetch/Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel), a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness; and the Tweed Brothers.

“Gotham” is based upon DC characters and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), Danny Cannon (the “CSI” franchise, “Nikita”), John Stephens (“Gossip Girl”) and Ken Woodruff (“The Mentalist”) serve as executive producers on the series.
