Jada Pinkett Smith Says She’s Leaving ‘Gotham’ After Season One

Jada Pinkett Smith Gotham

One thing we know about Gotham is most of the characters are going to survive. The show has to endure long enough for a young Bruce Wayne to grow up, become Batman, and then tangle with characters like Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and the Joker. Any mystery the show has revolves either in how that will all play out, or in new characters not previously seen in comic books or movies.

The most prominent new character in the show’s first season is Fish Mooney, played by Jada Pinkett Smith. She’s a major new villain specific to the show who looked to have a long future in Gotham. In a new interview, however, Pinkett-Smith said she’s not likely to return to Gotham after this season. Read the Jada Pinkett Smith Gotham Season 2 quotes below.

The actress said this on a recent appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael (via Variety). She was asked if she was coming back for Gotham season two:

I don’t think so, no. I signed for a year and the year is up. But, there are some great things coming ahead on ‘Gotham,’ believe you me, there’s a lot of good stuff coming.

However, this doesn’t necessarily mean Mooney dies. Host Michael Strahan surmised that the character could pop up anywhere to which the actress replied:

She could show up anywhere, you never know.

Variety also got in touch with the show’s producers, who released this vague statement:

Fish Mooney’s storyline takes a lot of interesting twists and turns into the finale of season one of Gotham.

To be honest I’m not watching Gotham. I hear good things about Gotham, but I never felt the urge to delve too deep into this world once the show made it clear it was more interested in set-up than execution. At least, that’s how it felt from the outside looking in. Many young versions of classic characters being introduced with Batman still a decade away? That feels like a lot of wheel-spinning for me, and a new character like Mooney seemed designed to facilitate that. But if Jada Pinkett-Smith is leaving the show, who can now be set into that unpredictable, story driving role?

Staten Island Pediatrician Offers Treatment and Prevention Tips on Poison Ivy

BOHEMIA, N.Y., June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Dr. Michael Gabriel, a Staten Island Pediatrician, provides advice on how to avoid poison ivy plants, and treat or prevent rashes.

According to an article published by KidsHealth.org, poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac all contain the same oily substance that causes rashes, urushiol. Recognizing oily plants during different parts of the year is important since they can look different depending on the season. Poison ivy can often be red during the spring, green during the summer and brown during the fall.

An allergic reaction to poisonous plants occurs for 60-80 percent of people within hours or as late as 5 days after coming in contact with a plant. Often time’s poison ivy can be prevented, according to the article. Avoiding areas where poison ivy is present is the key way in preventing poison ivy rashes, along with learning to identify plants, and wearing proper clothing when engaging in outdoor activity.

Dr. Michael Gabriel of GPM Pediatrics, a Staten Island pediatrics center, says that poison ivy season is in full swing. “Poison ivy can be very dangerous for children, especially because they have very sensitive skin. I advise parents to teach their children how to identify poisonous plants and the risks associated with them.” Gabriel urges parents to have their children shower after outdoor activity near plants but not to give baths. “Giving a bath can spread the oils around the tub and can make the condition worse.”

Dr. Gabriel says that once poison ivy is contracted, it is very difficult to get rid of and can be uncomfortable. “Calmine lotion is popular but has mixed results. If the condition gets severe for your child you must contact your local pediatrician to get the proper treatment,” Gabriel explains. “Be aware of any outdoor pets that your family has as well. Dogs often rub up against poison ivy and the oils can transfer to your kids.”
