‘Gotham’ season 2: Zabryna Guevara talks, surprise deaths and the Maniax

Chaos has been the theme in the first two episodes of Fox’s hit show, Gotham. Now Zabryna Guevara and creator Bruno Heller discuss the fate of the character, what’s ahead and more deaths.

The only way to knock them off their equilibrium is to go after their own,” Heller told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s not that they don’t care about deaths outside of their own number, but when it hits home, when someone comes into your home and takes away an authority figure like commissioner Essen, then you’re really hitting home.”

Essen’s death, Heller said, paves the way for the arrival of new series regular Michael Chiklis’ Capt. Barnes on a plot level, but more important, “it really lets everyone know that however hard Gotham has been hit in the past, the Maniax are taking things up a notch — and that the show is taking things up a notch.”

“At the beginning of the season, I knew Essen was going to meet her demise in some way or fashion, but I didn’t find out how it would happen until I got the scripts,” Guevara tells THR.

“It really was a great final two episodes that gave the character a great exit.”

Essen is a strong role, an ally to Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and her demise may have surprised the actress.

“I knew that Essen would be a major player, but I didn’t know how it was going to progress. Definitely in the beginning, she had a tug of war with Gordon’s moral center being so firm; he really did rock the boat for everyone in the GCPD. Everyone was working on the status quo and maintaining everything the way it was, and he came in and shook everything up. That was something that she really struggled with in the beginning, but in the end — and it’s something that you can really see by the end of season one — she was completely on board with him.
