Riddle Me This – The Evolution Of A Villain

Much of the focus in Gotham is on Jim Gordon and Oswald Cobblepot. But one of the more fascinating storylines has been the evolution of Edward Nygma, mild-manner CSI, into the criminal master-mind The Riddler. We’ve watched Cory Michael Smith go from the quirky crime scene investigator with a penchant for riddles into a killer with a psychotic break and now an obsession with Gordon. The strength of the series has been the slow builds and making characters that we’d have no reason to side with still be likable. Nygma is a great example of that and it looks like things are going to move forward for the character quite a bit this week.

Fox has released this super cut of Nygma’s evolution into The Riddler.
