Gotham EP Teases Fish Mooney’s Return & The Rise Of Riddler


Gotham returns tonight and by all accounts the city of Gotham is heading for some even rougher times than it’s already been through. Gotham EP Bruno Heller talked with TV Line about some things we’ll see in the final four episodes of the first season of the hit TV show including what really starts Edward Nygma on the path to becoming the Riddler and Fish Mooney’s return to Gotham.

According to Heller, one miss Kristen Kringle is the primary catalyst for Nygma’s turn:

"She is the catalyst. And she’s an innocent one at that> That’s the tragedy of it — she doesn’t mean to break his heart."

And Heller talked about Fish Mooney coming back into Gotham to cause major chaos in the criminal underworld:

"It’s certainly about reinventing herself and coming back twice as strong, twice as ambitious. Every strong villain wants to be the queen or the king of the underworld, but it’s an ambition that trips up a lot of people — if you’re striving for ultimate power, you always run the risk of ultimate defeat. And that’s essentially whats playing out now: Can Fish take control or not? Because the consequences of failure are dire."
