“Gotham” is heading into its final two installments and darker than ever, thanks to Bane’s merciless killing tactics.
TheWrap’s exclusive clip from Thursday’s episode, “They Did What?,” features the famed villain (played by Shane West) in all his breathing-suited-up glory, taking control of the troops so he can try to destroy Gotham by the time Fox’s Batman-prequel series comes to an end next week.
And when the team’s commander doesn’t “want to be party to the murder of civilians,” Bane takes matters into his own hands, literally, by snapping the guy’s neck. Guess who’s in charge now?
Watch the video above.
Here’s the official description for tonight’s “Gotham”:
