Fox has released images for Gotham Season 4 Episode 3, "They Who Hide Behind Masks," and we're getting a couple of major returns in this upcoming episode, airing next week on Oct. 5.

The official description for the episode tells a lot less of a story than the images:

"Gordon takes matters into his own hands when he travels to Miami in attempts to persuade Carmine Falcone for his help in the fight against Penguin. There, he meets Carmine’s (guest star John Doman) daughter, Sofia (Crystal Reed), who unexpectedly follows Gordon back to Gotham. The battle for Penguin’s prized weaponry continues during auction night at the Iceberg Lounge and Bruce’s presence puts him on Penguin’s radar."

The images, however, show us much more -- we meet Sofia in the pictures (seen in the gallery below), and the way she looks at Jim Gordon says she may be a new love interest for him. Oh Jim, you love making things complicated, don't you?

Meanwhile, Bruce gets all dolled up for a party with ... Penguin? He also has a conversation with Selina that hopefully goes much better than his last couple have.

Finally, we see Ra's al Ghul has returned, and he's brought another returning character with him (so beware of mild spoilers in the gallery). A new villain team-up is always fun on Gotham, and this one should be a blast (and, you know, a disaster).

Gotham airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
