This past week's latest 'Gotham' installment slipped in some subtle Batman references to the Dark Knight's inevitable rogues gallery, but next week's "Harvey Dent" faces its DC future head-on. See 'Masters of Sex' star Nicholas D'Agosto debut as 'Gotham''s white knight Harvey Dent in a new clip, and learn what future Robins might have to offer in FOX's comic prequel!

As debuted during 'Gotham''s "The Mask" followup 'Sleepy Hollow,' FOX introduced our first look at a young Harvey Dent with a brand-new clip highlighting James Gordon (Ben McKenzie)'s meeting the future Two-Face. Not only does the sneak peek introduce Harvey's famous coin, but so too do we see the charismatic demeanor that makes the young assistant DA's fall that much more ultimately tragic. So reads FOX's official description of the November 17 installment:


Trying to close the Wayne murder case, a young Harvey Dent (guest star Nicholas D’ Agosto) and Gordon team up, much to Mayor James’ (guest star Richard Kind) chagrin. Meanwhile, Penguin makes contact with Mooney’s (Jada Pinkett Smith) secret weapon, Liza (guest star Mackenzie Leigh) in the all-new “Harvey Dent” episode of GOTHAM.

D'Agosto's role will only prove recurring, but like the recent addition of 'Firefly' star Morena Baccarin as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, D'Agosto's Harvey Dent has the option to become a regular role in the inevitable second season. If that wasn't enough Bat-lore for your tastebuds, it seems Ben McKenzie also recently suggested to The Daily Beast that Robin might make an early debut with the Grayson's family's likely appearance in the first season. Hooray, right?

Well, what say you? Are you ready to meet "Harvey Dent" in next week's all-new 'Gotham'? Check out the sneak peek above, and give us your predictions for FOX's Batman prequel in the comments!'
