Gotham TV Series: Arkham’s Origins

According to the first official synopsis of Gotham‘s fourth episode, viewers may discover the origins of Arkham Asylum.  The synopsis refers to Arkham as a district, which may imply that Arkham Asylum does not exist yet, and that Arkham will initially be a characteristically distinctive unit or section of Gotham city; one could assume that it is a residential district.  This might cause one to wonder if Arkham will eventually manifest itself in the form of an asylum (i.e. an actual physical building), or if it will become a sprawling mega-prison-city similar to (but not the same as) the one presented in the video-game, Arkham City.  Regardless, what we do know is that, at the very least, Arkham will be addressed in Gotham Season 1, Episode 4, which is aptly titled “Arkham.”

Here is the synopsis:
