I am still on Season 1 of Gotham; I have watched it half way through so far. Nygma works for the Forensic department of the G.C.P.D. team of Gotham. So far Nygma has been acting very friendly, cooperative, and flirtatious. I used to laugh every time he would throw a riddle. I thought that it just what some bored cops until Episode 15, “Scarecrow”. When Penguin re-opens Fish’s night club under his name, he visits the G.C.P.D. to give an invitation to the Jim. Jim Gordon saved his life and he is the only honest guy Penguin really knows. We can see Penguin’s struggle with the good and bad as we watch him desperately attempting to tie a bond with Jim Gordon.
When Penguin is inside the G.C.P.D.’s office, something really weird happens. Nygma loses his usual composure and stalks Penguin. He then stands really close to Penguin and talks to him; Penguin eventually gets frustrated and asks him to step back. Nygma complies while smiling in a cunning manner. Then, he says something very weird, which is how I nailed that Nygma is actually “The Riddler”; if I didn’t hear him say this, I would have continued believing that the real Riddler is just a copycat or some twisted friend of Nygma. Nygma’s comments are actually very creepy! He said to Penguin, “You know male emperor Penguins keep their eggs warm by balancing them on their feet? Isn’t that neat?” After and while saying these very odd words, he keeps smiling at the fearsome Penguin in a very strong manner. Also note that he chose to convey his sentiments to Penguin at the time Penguin was trying to create another precious and rare memory with Jim Gordon. In essence, Nygma ruined one of Penguin’s happiest memory on purpose. After watching him exert control on Penguin like this, I realized that this cop with real control issues is actually the villain “The Riddler”.
“Gotham” is very beautiful to watch especially if you have any interest in criminology and abnormal psychology. I am studying this series for my upcoming novel “She: The Mirror“. I cannot understand some of my experiences that have occurred in Canada without learning about such content. Canada is actually a very abusive country; and, many abusers and brainwashers are sitting in academic places, mainstream media, offices, and government.
