We’re currently nine episodes in on the first season of FOX’s new hit DC Comics series, “Gotham,” and, if you’ve been watching, you know that events have been set in motion that will be driving the show forward throughout the rest of the season (at least). It’s a safe bet that next week’s episode, titled “Lovecraft,” will offer a fair share of twists and turns, as it represents the show’s midseason finale. To tease the event, FOX has just released a promo and five clips from “Lovecraft,” totaling about eight minutes of footage from the November 24 episode.
“Selina leads a new friend on a perilous journey through Gotham to evade the assassins who are on her trail,” reads the episode’s official description. “Following a misstep, Gordon is reassigned to duty at Arkham Asylum.”
Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment and produced by Warner Bros. Television, “Gotham” is an origin story of the great DC Comics super-villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. Starring Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Donal Logue (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”) and Jada Pinkett Smith (The Matrix films, “HawthoRNe”), “Gotham” follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes.
Guest stars for “Lovecraft” include Richard Kind as Mayor James, Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean, Mackenzie Leigh as Liza, Nicholas D’Agosto as Harvey Dent, Leslie Odom Jr. as Ian Hargrove and Luke Forbes as John Hargrove.
“Gotham” airs Mondays at 8 P.M. on FOX.
