We’ve still got a couple weeks until ‘Gotham’ returns, but according to star Erin Richards, it will be worth the wait. Check out our EXCLUSIVE scoop on what we can expect from the rest of the season!
Gotham returns on Apr. 13, and the remainder of the season looks to be jam-packed. Along with Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bullock’s (Donal Logue) investigation of a cold case involving an Ogre, Fish (Jada Pinkett Smith) must plot her escape from the Dollmaker. However, all of that might be nothing compared to what’s coming for Barbara (Erin Richards). The star revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY what kind of trouble lies ahead for her and– spoiler!– it might not involve Gordon!
‘Gotham’ Spoilers: Barbara’s Rocky Future
There’s a rocky road ahead for Barbara and Gordon on Gotham.
Though Erin believes the two may end up together eventually, it won’t happen immediately and certainly not without some hardship.
“I think she’ll probably eventually circle back because she marries him in the end, supposedly, in the comics,” Erin said. “So I guess down the line she might. Right now she’s on a much more interesting path in that she’s going much darker, which is really fun for me.”
Erin also said that, along with Barbara’s journey with Gordon, she will go through some personal tribulations as well.
“The great thing with Barbara is there’s no sort of expectation with her, the character’s less well-known,” she said. “Our creator gets to play with her a bit more, she can go on more of a journey than the other characters. They’re more restrained by the lore, the comics.”
Kissing Ben McKenzie
Well, not to get distracted, but as long as we’re on the subject of Barbara and Gordon, we have to ask, how is it to kiss adorable actor Ben?
“It was fantastic!” Erin said. “It was lovely. He’s a great guy and a really fun actor. You know it’s not real, though, right? There’s no tongues. Like kissing your mum. It’s not real.”
Well it’s real to us, Erin!
Are you excited for Gotham to return?
