What can we expect when Gotham returns? — Matty
Even though Gordon will be working a new gig at Arkham Asylum, it won't take him long to make a new friend: Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin), who, despite being a bit different from her comic book counterpart, is one of the good guys.

But now that Gordon's fiancée skipped town, could that "friendship" become more? "There's definitely chemistry — so I'm not going to say no!" Baccarin teases.
