You thought Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) had a complicated love life before with his ex-fiancée Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) going crazy and becoming a crime lord and his ex-girlfriend Leslie Thompkins (Morena Baccarin) getting engaged to a mob boss’s son and then taking a formula to make her super strong and insane? Well, now it appears he is also going to get involved with another one of the same mob boss’s children. And we get our first look at Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf) as Sofia Falcone.
Gotham Season 4 brings back Carmine Falcone (John Dorman), who will obviously still be upset at Gordon for killing Mario Falcone (James Carpinello)…this is starting to sound more like The Godfather. With Lee out of town, Jim is focusing on something new, his career and the path towards becoming Commissioner.
Executive producer John Stephens told EW.com:
“We’re going to see Jim make, in some ways, big steps toward I guess what you would call the commissionership. But also we’re going to see Jim, in his quest to save the city, cross different ethical lines than he ever did before. It’s going to bring him to an ethical nadir that we haven’t seen him at, and it’s going to be told through the context of a relationship that he has with Sofia Falcone, the daughter of Don Falcone, who’s played by Crystal Reed this year. And that’s going to be a really compelling and interesting relationship.”
Commissioner Gordon…that has a good ring to it.
Gotham Season 4 premieres September 21st on Fox.
