In what may be the first every Red Band trailer for a network television series, Gotham has released a new 3 plus minute video recapping the arrival of Professor Pyg in Gotham and giving us a preview of what’s coming next. Pyg, short for Pygmalion, is played by Michael Cerveris and he is on a crusade to eliminate all the corrupt cops in the GCPD and believes that Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is the only one worth leaving alive.
He’s already killed a handful of cops and lead more into a trap that ended up with Gordon replacing Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) as the Captain of Gotham Central. In the upcoming episode, Pyg escalates his attacks, going after the city’s elite and showing up as the chef for a fundraiser where he plans to serve people pies. Among the guests at the party are Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) and Sofia Falcone (Crystal Reed) plus the Penguin’s new protege, Martin (Christopher Convery). The clip shows that Sofia gets wounded and Penguin takes drastic action against someone other than Pyg. We also get to see Gordon and Pyg fight. The episode is called, A Dark Knight: Let Them Eat Pie.
Gotham airs Thursdays at 8 PM on Fox.
