As we’ve already heard, Poison Ivy will be going through a very drastic change in Gotham Season 3. An older version of the character is now being played by Maggie Geha. It’s explained that Poison Ivy has a run in with a monster from Indian Hill, and through a series of events she is reborn as a young woman “who’s harnessed the full power of her charms.”
In an interview with TV Insider, executive producer John Stephens offered some details on the monster that changes Poison Ivy and makes her fourteen years older. He says:
“One of the creatures that escaped from Indian Hill has the power to age people. Sometimes he uses it to kill people; other times he doesn’t get to complete the process.”
