In this week’s season 2 episode 19 of “Gotham,” we get to see the Theo Galavan’s (James Frain) transformation into knight assassin “Azrael” as he tries to assassinate an important person.
Last episode, Professor Hugo Strange (BD Wong) and Ethel Peabody (Tonya Pinkins) was successful at reanimating a corpse in the person of the former mayor. Perhaps due to the revival experimentations, Theo has developed increased strength and agility. The resurrection, however, caused him to go insane and forget who he was. Theo’s writings on the walls were recognized by Strange as originating from “The Will and Order of St. Dumas,” a book written by medieval knight crusaders whom Theo descended from. As for restoring Theo’s sanity and identity, Strange and Peabody are unsure on how to proceed.
