While the FOX drama series “Gotham” is on its winter break, detective Jim Gordon and his new fiancée, Dr. Lesley Thompkins, will have a little time to celebrate their engagement. However, the latest teasers for the second half of the season reveals that Jim would have to hit the ground running as he faces Mr. Freeze and Dr. Strange. [Warning: Spoiler Alert]

“The bad guys in this town are changing,” says Jim, in the promo video shared by FOX. “They’re not playing by the old rules, or any rules,” he continues. Whatever happens though, Jim promises that he’s ready to face what’s coming. Based on the same promo, Mr. Freeze will be playing a big role in the second half of Season 2. Jim’s GCPD badge could be seen freezing over at the end of the video, and the official “Gotham” twitter account confirms the new villain’s arrival. [scroll down for video]

In an interview with TV Line, “Gotham” executive producer Bruno Heller dishes details on Jim’s new nemesis. “We’re telling the Freeze story in classic style, from its origins,” says Heller. The same could be said about many of the other villains who have been seen in the series so far.

While many of the villains have appeared and have been vanquished by the show’s heroes, the question is, will they rise again? This appears plausible, with the mention of Dr. Hugo Strange at the end of the fall finale. Theo Galavan’s body was rolled into an experimental laboratory, which has been shown in other previous episodes as a destination for the bodies of Bridgit Pyke and even the comatose Barbara Keane. What will Dr. Strange do with these villains, and will he be able to bring them back as bigger, badder versions of themselves?

All these questions will be answered when “Gotham” returns on Monday, Feb. 29 at 8:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
