Watch: The Riddler Makes His First Official Appearance on Next Week's Gotham
This season of Gotham promised us a "Rise of the Villains," and we're about to see one of the Caped Crusader's most iconic antagonists finally ascend to true villainy. After more than a season of Edward Nygma's prolonged origin story, the Riddler is about to take over in a big way.



From the beginning, we've known we were watching Nygma's transformation into the Riddler, but we've never seen his alter ego in full force before. In this preview of next week's episode, "Mommy's Little Monster," Nygma discovers that his evil alter ego can take over his body, in what seems like a comic book version of dissociative identity disorder. Nygma previously thought he was rid of his dark side when he was in a relationship with Kristen Kringle, but he "accidentally" killed her last week, so there's that. 

Even more, Riddler is using his trademark symbol to leave clues (albeit for himself, rather than for little Bruce Wayne). He's stolen Kristen's body in order to prevent Nygma from turning himself in, and leads his poor hapless alter ego to the GCPD to find it. We'll probably see this disembodied Riddler for a while, but we assume that sometime soon, Nygma will accept that his alter-ego is his true identity.

Gotham's "Rise of the Villains: Mommy's Little Monster" will air on Monday, November 2 at 8pm on Fox.
