If you’ve been enjoying Gordon’s new girlfriend on ‘Gotham’, you’ll be pleased to know you’ll be seeing her a lot more of her in season two.
TVLine reported that Morena Baccarin (Dr. Leslie Thompkins) has been promoted to a series regular.
Morena is no stranger to comic book features. According to ScreenRant, she voiced the AI Gideon in ‘The Flash’ and she’s starring in the lead role of ‘Deadpool’ next year. Lucky for us, her other super hero gigs won’t affect her ‘Gotham’ job.
I really liked Lee. She’s strong and won’t let Gordon not pursue a bad guy just for her. She’s not afraid of becoming a target and is committed to Gordon and his mission to clean up Gotham.
I was afraid that this relationship wouldn’t last, but I’m very happy the writers are continuing to write a part for her. We lost Jada Pinkett Smith in the season finale, though she can always return. It’s nice to have a another strong female character, even if this one is playing for the good side. Strong is strong. It doesn’t matter whether the female character is good or bad, we still need more of them. Especially in the comic book world.
