We still don’t know the identity of Gotham‘s version of Harley Quinn (hence the photo of Suicide Squad‘s Margot Robbie instead), but we’ll soon know. According to the teenager who plays the soon-to-be-Batman, David Mazouz, Harley will be coming to the two-hour season three finale of Gotham. And this bonkers show — which seems to be fully embracing its particular form of ultraviolent campiness this season — has already been renewed for a bonkers season four, so we’ll be seeing the resolution of the season finale’s cliffhangers. Well, as close to a resolution as Gotham provides, which might mean somebody dying then coming back then dying or somebody getting buried alive or somebody getting their face literally punched off.
Mazouz teased some big events for the finale in an interview with Movie Pilot. With presumably hundreds of people infected with the Tetch virus in the previous episode (including Detective Gordon and Dr. Leslie Thompkins), what else could they fit into the finale? Harley Quinn, for one thing. “She’s going to be in the finale,” Mazouz told Movie Pilot, although we still don’t know if she’ll be a new actress or a current one (as rumored).
Harley Quinn’s appearance has been teased for months, with executive producer John Stephens revealing last year that her appearance was delayed while Suicide Squad was still in theaters, but we “may” see her in the season finale as a launching point for season four. Now that’s official. Stephens also revealed that we may have already seen Harley, because this show loves playing the are-they-or-aren’t-they game.
Mazouz also hinted at Bruce getting closer to becoming Batman:
“Something major happens in the very last scene of Season 3 for Bruce. He makes a decision, that decision will influence what he does. I don’t know what’s happening in Season 4 yet, I haven’t had a script or talked to the writers about what’s going to happen, but where I see it going is somewhere I’ve wanted to see it going for a very long time. You’ll see what I mean. Bruce is going to be very busy taking on this new role that he assumes at the end of Season 3 and I think it’ll be really cool.”
Oooo, maybe he’ll join the treasury board of the homeowner’s association. Or maybe he’ll stand on rooftops at night, brooding in darkness (no parents), as he’s seen briefly doing in this new promo:
Gotham‘s two-hour season finale airs next Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
