Tommy Elliot to Return to Gotham This Season

In a season that seems to be finally tying up some loose ends, Tommy Elliot is finally returning to Gotham. Tommy Elliot, who later on in life becomes the Batman villain Hush, has only made a minor appearance as a classmate and bully of Bruce Wayne.However, While Tommy may be returning to Gotham, there’s no telling if a Hush storyline of some kind is in the work

However, While Tommy may be returning to Gotham, there’s no telling if a Hush storyline of some kind is in the works. Gotham’s Executive Coporducer, in an exclusive interview with Comicbook, Bryan Wynbrandt had this to say.

“Obviously when Tommy Elliot is discussed, there’s always is that Hush story line. That is something that we’ve discussed. Right now, we’re kind of still feeling that out. It could be something on the horizon, but I can’t say for sure.”

Gotham has not shied away from changing parts of various character’s backgrounds, making the Penguin a part of the Gotham mob as well as the of a poor immigrant in contrast to usually being independent even antagonistic to the mob and from one of Gotham’s founding families. Not to the mention the addition of new elements to certain characters.

Even without a Hush storyline, Tommy Elliot’s return could try and do more to reconcile one of the serious flaws of Gotham: The introductions of characters within the lore, be it Harvey Dent, Rene Montoya, Ivy, and Jonathan Crane were all introduced, and not really being used well or at all. Thankfully over the course of season 3, and with this season so far Gotham has made some progress in addressing this issue.
