Gotham's Bad Boys Come Face to Face (VIDEO)

It's been a season-in-the-making: tonight, Batman fans at long last get the first encounter between Penguin and future Riddler, Edward Nygma on Gotham (8/7c, Fox).

Calling the encounter "our first meet-cute," Robin Lord Taylor raves about finally sharing the screen with Cory Michael Smith's future Riddler. "Oh man, Cory is so good," says the actor, adding that, although the scene is brief, "we shot the hell out of it."

Check out the exclusive clip above and bask in the glorious weirdness and potential trouble these two could stir up once they wind up on the same, wrong side of the law. Det. Jim Gordon, we hope you're up for this twosome!

Correction: This story has been corrected to include the last name of Cory Michael Smith.
