When “Gotham” returns on Jan. 5, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) will have a new job in the last place he wants to be working. After the events of the fall finale — “Lovecraft” — he’s been reassigned to keeping an eye on Arkham Asylum, home to Gotham’s criminally insane.
For the first time, “Gotham” is going inside their version of Arkham and if the photos FOX has released are any indication, it’s not a glamorous place to work. Though there isn’t much to see yet, it certainly seems like the stuff of horror movies.
Perhaps even scarier than the Asylum itself is Gordon’s new uniform. The slick-looking detective now looks like a glorified security guard, complete with giant flashlight. What are the odds Harvey Bullock is going to mock him for his new clothes?
The one thing missing from the photos is Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin). Thompkins works at Arkham and will be connected to Gordon during his time there. It’s unclear exactly how close the two will get, though.
“Gotham” returns Monday, Dec. 5, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
