As Fox’s Gotham closes in on its series finale, we speculate about what we would like to see, and what we definitely don’t, in the last episode.

Gotham reached the halfway point in its final season with Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) dropping a bombshell on beleaguered Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie). All of episode 6, ’13 Stitches’, was a love letter to a truly bad day for Jim, where he was almost killed by Ed Nygma (Cory Michael Smith), his old friend Eduardo Dorrance (Shane West), and his ex-fiancée Lee Thompkins (Morena Baccarin).

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Barbara then surprised him with the news that, following their intimate encounter in episode 4 of Gotham, she was pregnant. This opens up plenty of speculation for what lies in store for the rest of the season, and most importantly, the show’s final episode.

Why? Because Erin Richards is directing the last episode, which may mean that she won’t be on screen that much. Also, the finale is written by Ben McKenzie, and titled ‘Batman’, and it will possibly see a time-jump. We already know from the season premiere that the Gotham lockdown continues for over a year and that many unlikely alliances are formed, but what isn’t certain is how many time-jumps viewers can expect.

With plenty still in the air about how Gotham’s swan song will go, it will undoubtedly be a culmination of all that’s happened on the season so far. In six episodes, the showrunners have dropped so many hints on building the greater Bat-verse that anything is possible from the show’s climax.

So, what better time than now to speculate on what the showrunners could include in the finale, and what they should definitely stay away from.
