Gotham: Montoya May Be Back


Victoria Cartagena may not be returning as a series regular in the second season of Gotham, but according to Gotham executive producer John Stephens, that doesn’t mean we won’t see Renee Montoya this season.

"It’s a bummer, you know. When you do this for a long time, you have these actors and they’re good actors and you like working with them, but at a certain point the ship starts moving in a certain direction and you want to get everybody on the ship at the same time, and you say ‘Okay, the ship will move back over here and we’ll get you again!’” John said. “But we always think about is both Victoria and Alan still live in the world of Gotham, so even though they’re not series regulars anymore, if we need to, we can go back and see them again."

Cartagena’s character was also part of love triangle with Jim Gordon and Barbara Kean, and Stephens hints that Kean will be part of a new villainous love triangle in the upcoming season of Gotham:

"She’s in a little difficult romantic situation. A romantic triangle with basically two main villains this year—one of whom’s a man, one of whom’s a woman. So she’s caught in the middle between the two. So it’s a triumvirate of romantic villiany. By episode two you’ll know,” John said. “That relationship, that triumvirate relationship, plays out through episode 10. It’s episode 201 through episode 210, I think. We really tried to make everything more saga-esque this year, so you seed it here and then you develop it there and play it off there, so it’s not all one episode."

I do hope we see Victoria Cartagena in some aspect this season, as Renee Montoya could be a big part of Gotham and Jim Gordon really needs every ally he can get.
