Edward Nygma will begin his dark descent on Gotham


Cory Michael Smith’s performance as Edward Nygma has made the character a fan-favorite among Gotham fans. Even though Smith has won over the hearts of Gothamites, many feared for the inevitable turn that would lead Nygma on the path to becoming The Riddler. As it turns out that might happen a lot closer than you think.

Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller revealed in a recent interview that the remainder of this season would show Nygma’s descent into villainy.

“Penguin was born a sociopath and was always going down this path one way or another. Nygma is someone who becomes the villain, and we see that journey begin in the second half of the season.”

Heller confirms that Nygma’s turn will likely have to do with his well documented interest in Kristen Kringle. There’s a chance that two could eventually have a falling out of some sort.

“What motivates people to do things is oftentimes love. He is slowly starting to break through her defenses, but we take two steps forward and then one step back. It’s not smooth sailing for Edward Nygma. It’s complicated for her to have somebody’s feelings in her hand. It’s not as simple as rejecting somebody and having a clean conscience because she’s starting to realize how deeply he cares.”
