The first season of Fox’s Gotham actually made some good impressions and, while end has left us on a cliffhanger, we do not exactly know what to expect from the next season. Gotham’s season two is called Rise of the Villains and our mission here is to identify what exactly is going to happen in the most-anticipated series.
The main theory was developed by fans from TV Guide, who have put together a series of declarations made by the show’s executive producer, Danny Cannon. We start with the unearthing of Theo Galavan, who is coming back to Gotham as “a prodigal son”. Theo is the son of a wealthy family with “ancient roots”.
Moreover, Cannon proceeded to declare that Theo is the actual origin of a very well-known DC villain, one who accomplishes his goals by requesting the aid of other villains. But things get a little more specific when he reveals how Theo plans on doing things.
Cannon mentioned that this one man will make all the villains in Gotham understand that the people who are facing them are a lot weaker than they think. The villains are the ones who will change Gotham because they can destroy. And no great empire is forged without destroying what was previously built. Isn’t it specific enough?
Well, if you still haven’t figured it out you have two options: either stop here and wait for the beginning or proceed with caution but know that you are in for some spoilers.
The person that cannon is talking about can be none other than Ra’s al Ghul (Demon’s Head). Yes, it looks like Ra’s is going to be running things in Gotham in this season and we all know how Ra’s does things: there needs to be some bloodshed around and Gotham definitely needs to be destroyed if anything good is to come out of it.
But this can set an entirely different storyline in the history of the Dark Knight. As far as comics and animations told us in the past, neither Jim Gordon nor Harvey Dent are aware of Ra’s al Ghul’s existence. They never faced him, they never had to deal with him. It has always been a Batman/Ra’s duel.
But the only people who can stand in between Ra’s and the destruction of Gotham are Jim and Harvey, and we’re throwing big expectations to Harvey because he doesn’t seem like the “fighting Ra’s” type. But it really remains to be seen if this is the case. Either way, it should provide a good story for Gotham’s next season.
