When Gotham‘s fourth season premieres later this month, the name of the game is fear. And although Penguin might be in control of the underworld, even he’s not prepared for the arrival of Scarecrow.

EW has an exclusive look at a new, extended promo for the season, in which Scarecrow asks, “What scares you the most?” Because, as he puts it, he’s going to “show Gotham what it means to fear.” And he means that literally — his weapon of choice is the fear toxin. However, he’s not going to take Gotham down easily. As Ben McKenzie tells EW, Scarecrow will push back against both Gordon and Penguin, which will cause a “race between Gordon and Penguin to see who can take this gang out first.”

Or maybe Bruce will beat them both to it seeing as how he’s now embracing his vigilante ways? Watch the full promo above.


Gotham returns Thursday, September 21 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
