‘Gotham’ Season 5 Episode 3 “Penguin, Our Hero” Preview: Selina Wants in on the Joke

Last week’s episode of FOX‘s Gotham (“Trespassers”) saw Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) giving Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) a great big hug for healing her shattered spine. Unfortunately for Bruce, something about the “cure” Poison Ivy (Payton List) gave him has altered Selina–including sporting creepy cat eyes now.

Selina looks like she’s out for a little revenge against Jeremiah Valeska (Cameron Monaghan), the creepy proto-Joker who gave her that nasty spine injury in the first place. The future Catwoman looks more than ready to settle a serious score–with Bruce hell-bent on stopping that from happening–as you can see in the following preview for the third episode of  FOX’s Gotham, “Penguin, Our Hero”:

With this being Gotham’s fifth and final season, the series is delving deep into the events that forged Bruce Wayne into Gotham City’s Dark Knight–the vigilante crime fighter known as the Batman. With most of the Caped Crusader’s rogue’s gallery already in place–and Selina’s transformation into Catwoman well underway–it’s only a matter of time before we see “The Man” himself.

Did someone say “Gotham time-jump episode”? 

With only nine episodes left to go after this week, the training wheels are perilously close to flying off–as we can see in the following “movie” trailer for the season:

Gotham is based upon DC characters and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon, and John Stephens are executive producers on the series.
