While Gotham is taking a short break before airing its final set of episodes for the series, a new report sheds some light on the series finale.
Gotham's finale will take place after a time jump that brings the series a decade into its future. More interestingly, the future glimpse of Gotham City will reportedly include a major Batman ally: Barbara Gordon, Jim Gordon's daughter and the future Batgirl.
According to TVLine's Michael Ausiello, the series finale will feature "a 10-year-old Barbara Gordon, who of course is fated to follow in the bootsteps of Yvonne Craig and Alicia Silverstone."
In the course of the final season, Jim and ex-fiance Barbara Kean briefly reconnected, with Barbara recently giving birth to their daughter on the series. While it is unknown if this flash-forward Barbara will display any hints of her eventual crime-fighting career, her inclusion does help bridge Jim Gordon and Batman's legacies.
Returning Thursday, April 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth and Shane West as Bane.
