Oswald Cobblepot (aka Penguin) is one of the most beloved villains on Gotham.
Last season ended with Penguin getting his revenge on Theo Galavan for murdering his mother. In a new clip from Fox, Robin Lord Taylor tells us how those events have effectively cut Penguin from his moorings letting him slip into the more insane side of the villain.
In the behind-the-scenes video below, Taylor says, “His mother was his only connection to humanity, it was the only love in his life and that was taken away from him in an extremely brutal way. He’s untethered now, he can be the monster that everybody has always viewed him as.”
Maybe that explains why he was chained up in Arkham Asylum in the Gotham midseason premiere trailer. Or maybe that’s just another one of his crazy plots.
Gotham returns at 8pm EST on Monday, February 29, 2016 on Fox.SuperFable
