Say what you will about Season 9 of “Doctor Who,” there’s no disputing just how amazing Michelle Gomez has been in her role as Missy the Master on the series. She’s deliciously evil and fans just can’t get enough.
Now Gomez is heading away from the U.K. to spend a little time in Gotham City. The actress tweeted a photo of herself on the set of “Gotham,” writing, “The Lady is waiting. Coming up on Fox Mon 16th Nov.” That would mean she’s coming to the next episode, “Rise of the Villains; A Bitter Pill To Swallow.”
An official description of the episode reads, “Gordon and Barnes continue cleaning up Gotham, and Gordon comes face-to-face with one of the city’s most dangerous hitmen, Eduardo Flamingo (guest star Raul Castillo). Meanwhile, Nygma and Penguin cross paths again, and Bruce pressures Galavan into handing over the name of his parents’ murderer.”
Surprisingly, no mention of The Lady or Gomez. There’s no telling whether she’s a hero, villain or somewhere in between as she cannot be seen in preview photos or in the trailer for the episode.
All that can really be taken from Gomez’s photo is her attire — dressed in a shirt and tie — and that her character will be known as The Lady.
With so much up in the air after “Rise of the Villains: Tonight’s the Night,” the mystery surrounding the next episode just got even deeper and more interesting.
“Gotham” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
