I want a divorce.
— Barbara Eileen Gordon

Barbara Eileen Gordon, or simply Barbara Gordon for short, is the ex-wife of Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon and the mother of Barbara Gordon.

Barbara was mentioned by Jim Gordon numerous times during the first season where he often referenced their deteriorating. Most notably in "You're a Damn Good Cop, Jim Gordon" when he revealed that Barbara had started sleeping with someone else and no longer wanted to touch him. She was first seen, albeit only her back, during "New Gotham" where Jim was reaching his lowest point after Gotham City was thrown into chaos by the Joker's man-made earthquake and Batman's disappearance, and she finally asked him for a divorce.
