Is ‘Gotham’s Nygma About to be Caught?

Gotham - Cory Michael Smith

The wrath of the villains is in full force tonight when Gotham returns after a week off with an hour that is jam-packed with comic-book fun. You have Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) stepping back into the action, Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) serving the sickest justice imaginable to his late father’s new family, Lil’ Wayne (David Mazouz) taking a major step toward becoming the man behind the Bat, and Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) doing what he does best: Being a total riddle to an unsuspecting Gordon (Ben McKenzie), who recruits his tech-savvy pal to help clear his name in the murder of that GCPD officer. Trouble is…this may not be Jim’s slickest move, seeing how Nygma is the one who bashed the deceased’s head in and then framed him in the first place.

Here’s an exclusive clip from tonight’s episode that sets up Nygma to claim his spot within Gotham’s gallery of rogues.
