'Gotham' Season 3, Episode 16 Preview: Where in the world is Bruce Wayne?


After a several month hiatus, Gotham has finally returned, successfully setting the stage for the exciting final few episodes of season three. In the spring premiere, Edward Nygma devises an elaborate scheme, all so he can answer one of life's most pervasive questions: "Who am I?" And near the end of episode 15, Ed revealed his true self as none other than the Riddler. 

The Court of Owls also began to make some big moves in the spring premiere. The evil organization tries to recruit Jim Gordon to its cause, while also successfully replacing Bruce Wayne with his evil doppelganger. And it appears that the Court sent the real Bruce halfway across the globe — the young billionaire wakes up in a prison located high in the mountains. 

In season three, episode 16 of Gotham, the Court of Owls will further accelerate their plans for Gotham City — apparently its destruction — while Bruce is set to meet the temple Shaman, played by Raymond J. Barry, who will begin training him for a purpose that is not yet known. And while it is not confirmed that he will show up in next week's episode, Ra's al Ghul is set to be appearing on Gotham soon, and it is likely that he is not too far from where Bruce currently finds himself.
