In this week's episode of Gotham, Selina Kyle was miraculously healed in a manner that freed the "darker angels of her nature." As the episode ended, Selina was back on her feet, feeling better than she ever had before, only now with eyes that can transform to those of a cat.
Now, the promo for next week's episode, "Penguin, Our Hero," reveals she will waste no time in making good use of her new abilities, to seek revenge against Jeremiah Valeska.
As soon as the footage begins, it's clear Selina has embraced her mystical rebirth and assumed the mantle of the Catwoman. She's armed with razor-sharp claws on her fingertips, and wearing what sure looks to be a version of the Catwoman costume. The black, skin-tight outfit comes with a cowl that leaves her face revealed. However, in her earliest appearances on the series, Selina often sported goggles -- a nod to the character's future identity. Therefore, it's possible these goggles will end up making a return to complete her iconic, comic book look.
But Selina isn't taking back to the streets of Gotham City with just a new suit and abilities. No, from the look of things, it also appears as if her "darker angels" will now be what drives her. The young Catwoman appears to be filled with an uncontrollable rage, one that might be compared to the one Michelle Pfeiffer's Selina Kyle exhibited in Tim Burton's 1992 film, Batman Returns.
The first villains Gotham's Selina will tangle with appear to be the Mutant Gang and the hulking Mutant Leader, whom we knew would appear on the series back when the final season was filming. But that's not all -- the young antihero will also engage in a brutal fight with the series' version of Harley Quinn, a woman named Echo who works as Jeremiah Valeska's assistant and muscle.
