“Gotham” star David Mazouz, who plays the young billionaire Bruce Wayne, revealed that the Court of Owls will play a significant role in the show when the series returns this April following its winter break.
Mazouz told Comic Book Resources that Bruce and his butler, Alfred (Sean Pertwee), are busy training in order to prepare for his future role as the Batman.
“The Court of Owls will become extremely present in the last eight episodes. At the center of their plans is Bruce Wayne — Bruce and 514A are instrumental to that plan. Something huge will happen with Bruce and the Court of Owls that will change him forever and ultimately help transform him into the man we know he has to become,” he said.
It seems like Mazouz is excited for these episodes to unfold because there’s a huge twist that would tie it back to the beginnings of “Gotham.” “They have a plan. As I said, Bruce is going to be at the center of their plans. They do something to him that goes back to the very beginning of the show,” he said. “It’s something I would say is emotional, but it’s beyond that. It shakes the core of Bruce’s being. He’ll never be the same. It will transform him, and that’s going to be his arc in the last eight episodes.”
Another thing that fans can look forward to is the appearance of Harley Quinn, Joker’s (Cameron Monaghan) girlfriend. When executive producer John Stephens was asked by Cinema Blend when this would happen, he answered, “We might see [her] in episode 22.”
His co-executive producer Ken Woodruff also told IGN that “Gotham” fans had already seen Harley in past episodes, they just didn’t know it was her. “You may have already seen Harley as a person that you thought you had met and known for a long time. So we always reserve the right to sort of do that as well,” said Woodruff.
“Gotham” airs every Monday at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
