WATCH: Women of Gotham on frenemies and Bruce getting his s*** together

Fox's pre-Batman TV series Gotham kicked off its winter hiatus back in early December with yet another bats***-crazy episode. When the show finally returns sometime in 2018 (no premiere date has been slated yet), Sofia Falcone (former Teen Wolf alum Crystal Reed) will now be ruling Gotham with her henchmen, err, ladies, Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) and frenemies Tabitha Galavan (Jessica Lucas) and Barbara Kean (Erin Richards).

SYFY WIRE's Mike Avila was on hand at DC in D.C. 2018 for an interview with the three actresses who play some of Gotham's most badass women and discuss what's next for their characters on the Bruno Heller-created series.

 

"Selina's got some shenanigans going on," said Bicondova. "Her relationships with Tabitha and Barbara are going to continue but you'll also see her and Bruce [David Mazouz] kind of come back to each other a little bit, and per usual, there's always a little roller coaster going on there."

When she was asked if she thought Selina preferred the "wild and crazy, sowing his oats Bruce" (who's been pretty dang angsty all season, what with the whole Ra's al Ghul thing) or the good-guy Bruce we've come to know and love, Bicondova's answer won't come as a surprise:

"No. She doesn't like the go-crazy Bruce because she knows it's not him. She's not a very phony person and she sees right through people. And yeah, the ingenuity of it, of him, is she's like, 'what are you doing bro? What are you doing? Come on get your life together. You're a mess.' She's the best friend who says 'you need to stop right now because I don't know what you are doing.' And so we see the aftermath of that."

Richards then opened up to SYFY WIRE about Barbara's relationship with Tabitha moving forward this season, saying: "Barbara realizes she absolutely needs Tabitha so she is working really hard to maintain, to keep that trust going; to keep Tabitha trusting her so she's not being as wild and out of control as before and then as the episodes develop, something happens with Ra's al Ghul that's really interesting and fun."

"And they unite for a common goal," Lucas concluded.

The trio had more to say about genre TV being a great medium for actresses to get some juicy roles nowadays, so check out our interview above.
