Fox's Gotham Season One's 13th episode which airs on Monday, January 19, is titled "What the Little Bird Told Him." According to the studio's synopsis, it will follow the activities of the criminal Jack Gruber (played by guest star Christopher Heyerdahl), also known as "The Electrocutioner," a patient at Arkham Asylum who was seen escaping during the previous episode.

Meanwhile, Don Carmine Falcone (played by John Doman) struggles to hold onto his empire after Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) finally makes her next move in order to be the new crime boss in Gotham. Also, Oswald 'Penguin' Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) has been released from prison and is back in his place with Don Sal Maroni (David Zayas). He is also a double agent for Falcone and he has figured out what Fish is up to so he could be 'the little bird' in the title who will tell.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Baccarin who has been guesting as Dr.Thomkins since last week's episode was brought on board with an option to become a regular member of the cast if the series gets a second season. Asked what she thinks of the possibility, the star of such cult favorites as HomelandFirefly, and V, said: "I was excited by the possibility. I feel like, it's one of those things that you have to wait and see how it works. You bring on any major new character, and you have to see how all the moving parts and going to hold together. But I think there's a lot of possibility for her to stick around for a bit." Incidentally, Baccarin is also already on another DC Comics-based TV series. She is the voice of Gideon, Dr. Wells computer at STAR Labs in The Flash.
