Jada Pinkett-Smith Returning to Gotham for Multiple Episodes
Apparently, rumors of Fish Mooney's death have been greatly exaggerated. Jada Pinkett-Smith is returning to the Batman prequel show in the second season, reportedly for a multi-episode arc.

There's no word on how she'll come back, but I think it's safe to say she's alive. If she were coming back for one episode, then there would be a chance it was a flashback or hallucination, but multiple episodes seems to indicate that she's back for real. Plus, her "death" was ambiguous, at least by comic book standards. In the first season finale, we saw her get thrown off a building by Penguin, falling into water and presumably her death, but we never actually saw her body, and haven't heard anything from her since. And as we all know, characters in comic book adaptations aren't dead until you check their pulse (that's why you always double-tap!).



Opening quote
"I would definitely not assume anything in a town like Gotham," showrunner Bruno Heller said at the time. "It's very unpredictable, the comic book world."
