‘Gotham’ returns on Fox on September 21st with an episode entitled “Damned If You Do” in which we see the show’s hero Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) fall in more ways than one.

Things are a bit up in the air following Oswald Cobblepot’s (Robin Lord Taylor) rise to power last season.  As most know, Cobblepot is derogatorily called The Penguin, the name he will one day wear with honor as a crime boss and one of Batman’s most persistent opponents.  But for the time being, Cobblepot and Gordon share an unstable camaraderie which will surely come back to haunt Gordon.

But before that, Jim sees his hopes dashed when he is stripped of his job as a Gotham City policeman.  Desperate, he turns to Cobblepot which is clearly not the best idea.  We also get a glimpse of Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) all grown up and having fallen in with the wrong crowd, setting the stage for her to one day assume the guise of Catwoman.

Watch these two new clips below:

Here is the official synopsis for “Damned If You Do” and the rest of season two:

Penguin is King of Gotham and after a shakeup at the GCPD, Detective James Gordon’s moral compass wavers, as he seeks help from Penguin. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne continues to explore the secrets from his father’s office, while GOTHAM newcomers Theo Galavan (James Frain) and his sister, Tabitha (Jessica Lucas), make friends with some unlikely allies, a group of dangerous inmates from Arkham in the all-new “Rise of the Villains: Damned If You Do…”
