Gotham Spoilers: Gay romances for Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot & Riddler/Edward Nygmar?

by Angharad

A new relationship may be heading Gotham’s way in new episodes of the American crime series based.

Hints of the new gay relationship were evident at the end of the last episode. Although a kiss seemed inevitable as the tension rose, the pair played by Robin Lord Taylor and Cory Michael Smith, settled for a platonic and compassionate hug.

But fans are questioning whether this is a sign of things to come and a Penguin and Nygma love affair is about to ensue.

It’s not the first hint of a relationship though. The budding bromance between the pair has been stirring for quite some time. When Nygma set up Butch, his ulterior motives were questioned by fans.


Although Nygma confessed to Butch that he was eager to take Penguin’s place at the top, the intimate moment shared between Penguin and Nygma in last episode makes it seem that there are definite feelings between the pair. Or at least on one side of the partnership.

Quoting Meatloaf, Nygama told Penguin “I would do anything for you” and as Penguin has had a hard life after the death of his mother, this touched his heart and he seemed to draw close for a kiss. gotham-2

So does this mean things are soon to develop between the pair and Nygma will be Penguin’s new love interest?


The next episode of Gotham airs on Monday next week.

Season 3 Episode 6 is called ‘Follow the White Rabbit.’ The episode will see Mad Hatter set his eyes on his next victims, forcing Jim Gordon to make some tough decisions. Meanwhile, Penguin and Nygma’s relationship evolves, and a familiar face comes back into Nygma’s life.

    Making straight characters gay is abhorrent. Make your own but rewriting canon to suit a single group is wrong. Will stop watching show.
