While most "Gotham" fans are still waiting for Monday, 21 September, when season 2 will premiere, someone has already leaked the episode online. The premiere episode, which has been uploaded in all popular torrent sites, is titled "Rise of the Villains: Damned If You Do...".
The premiere episode, which is the first of three that shows the "Rise of the Villains" in Gotham, showed Jon Gordon (Ben McKenzie) voluntarily do a "bad thing" for the better good; which is basically signing a contract with the devil – or King - of Gotham himself.
After yet another tiff with his commander, Jim was suspended, much like his partner Harvey (Donal Logue) who is now manning a bar. In an effort to win it back, Jim joins hands with the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), at the reminder of Bruce (David Mazouz) that this one compromise would help him do a lot of good for Gotham. However, we know how any deal with Cobblepot is going to be like; not good.
Cobblepot is busy running the mafia in Gotham, but unbeknownst to the Penguin, many more villains who could threaten his hold over the city are rising. Most of them, including Barbara (Erin Richards) and Joker-esque Jerome (Cameron Monaghan) were broken out of Arkham Asylum by Theo Galavan (James Frain), who has big plans for them.
Amid all this craziness out in the city, Bruce and Alfred (Sean Pertwee) are building a bomb in the Wayne mansion to blow up the locked door to what is going to become the bat cave. After succeeding in their mission, the duo go into the basement to find a letter for Bruce from his dead father.
The letter says that truth and happiness cannot co-habit in one human and that he hopes Bruce would choose the latter; unless, he feels a calling, which obviously he will. It is that calling of the truth that forces young Bruce to become the Arkham Knight – Batman.
The episode will be aired on Fox at 8.00pm (EST) on Monday, 21 September. You can also live stream "Rise of the Villains: Damned If You Do..." via FoxNow.
