As Theo Galavan and the Order of St. Dumas were terrorizing Gotham late last year, many wondered if the already zany show would delve deeper into its mystical source material and actually bring Azrael to the small screen.
Well, they are.
The May 2 episode of Gotham, titled “Azrael”, will feature the return of James Frain as Theo Galavan — in appearance at least. Thanks to Dr. Hugo Strange’s Project Chimera, the billionaire ex-mayor of Gotham will be Azrael — the champion of a secret order of assassins that is a part of (or split from, by some accounts) the Order of Dumas.
Here’s the official synopsis for “Azrael”:
Gordon and Bruce question Professor Strange about Project Chimera, which leads Strange to send the newly resurrected Galavan to confront Gordon. Meanwhile, Nygma investigates who Professor Strange is in the all-new “Wrath of the Villains: Azrael” episode of GOTHAM.
