Gotham Knights Preview: The Knights Take on the Court of Owls
The CW has released a preview for the upcoming episode of Gotham Knights, “City of Owls.” The episode will air on Tuesday, June 20th, and it looks like it will be a major turning point for the series.
In the preview, we see the Knights spring into action after uncovering evidence that could clear their names. Harvey Dent (Misha Collins) also follows a lead that could help him finally piece together what happened the night Bruce Wayne was murdered. Meanwhile, Duela (Olivia Rose Keegan) begins to have second thoughts after reuniting with her mother.
The preview also features a first look at the Court of Owls, a secret society that has been pulling the strings in Gotham City for centuries. The Court is led by Rebecca March (Miranda Edwards), a powerful woman who will stop at nothing to protect her secrets.
“City of Owls” is shaping up to be a major episode for Gotham Knights. The episode will feature the Knights’ first major battle against the Court of Owls, and it will also explore the dark past of Harvey Dent. Fans will not want to miss this episode.
What’s next for Harvey Dent?
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Misha Collins teased that the more we get to know the darker embodiment of Harvey, the more we’ll want to root for the character.
“It was nice to get to spend the time with the character, to be able to personally get to get invested in him and start to feel like I knew who Harvey was, and I liked him, and I wanted him to be a champ. I wanted him to… I still want him to prevail,” Collins said. “I’m kind of personally invested in Harvey succeeding, and at the same time, in order to get there and in order to understand my character, I have to frankly confront his demons. We all have our demons. His are really a bit more bold and a bit more potentially troublesome for him.”
He continued, “He doesn’t have that cartoonish moniker to him. And he’s still just a broken version of Harvey, and so I think that, like you’re talking about different versions in the past that we’ve seen of Harvey Dent and Two-Face, I think it ends up being a much more grounded version where we actually understand how he got there, and all of the ingredients that went into that psychic break. And we’re still, weirdly, even when he is this disfigured and arguably somewhat sinister evil character, we’re still kind of rooting for him at the same time, which is a weird position to put the audience in.”
It will be interesting to see how Harvey Dent’s story unfolds in the second half of Gotham Knights season 1. Collins’ comments suggest that the character will be a complex and sympathetic figure, even as he descends into darkness.
