Bruce, on the other hand is in danger after getting kidnapped by the shadowy organization, which is currently in control of Wayne Enterprises. Gotham executive producer Ken Woodruff has teased that the second episode will addresses the mystery behind Bruce's kidnapping.

"The whole next episode will answer that and deal with that. The short answer is that Bruce is a really powerful symbol and the Wayne name is really powerful. They don't want to kill him because they want to use him or potentially turn him to their side and recruit him. Or maybe they do want to kill him but they're just not ready yet. Their plan isn't ready and they need to buy some time. There's a ton of clarity coming in the next episode, but there are some questions that stretch this mystery over the course of the season," he told Hollywood Reporter.

The official synopsis of episode 2 reads:

Fish Mooney (guest star Jada Pinkett Smith) takes matters into her own hands to locate Hugo Strange (guest star BD Wong), forcing Gordon to reluctantly team up with journalist Valerie Vale (guest star Jamie Chung) to find her. Penguin rises in popularity after criticizing the work of the GCPD and Bruce's investigation of the Court of Owls is compromised. Meanwhile, Ivy Pepper (Maggie Geha) is reintroduced into Gotham city.

Gotham season 3 episode 2 will air on on Monday (26 September) at 8pm EST on Fox.
