'Gotham': Jim Gordon Gets Fired in Season 2 Premiere (Exclusive Video)
He might be destined to become the city's most famous cop, but Jim Gordon is finding his career path rockier than anticipated in this exclusive clip from "Damned If You Do," the second-season premiere of Fox's Gotham.
Despite being defended by Captain Essen (Zabryna Guevara), Gordon (Ben McKenzie) finds himself facing the full wrath of Police Commissioner Loeb (Peter Scolari), leaving Gotham to deal with villains including Robin Lord Taylor's newly installed crime boss Penguin and the brand-new Theo and Tabitha Galvan (James Frain and Jessica Lucas, respectively) without its most ardent protector.
Actually, without its two most ardent protectors, if you pay attention to what Loeb says about Gordon's one-time partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue). Can Gordon really walk away from the force? What's happened to Bullock now that he's no longer a cop? And what's going on with the Joker and Gordon's former fiancee, anyway? All will be revealed when Gotham returns Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
