Penguin Will Be 'As Ruthless As He Wants' in "Gotham" Season 3, Says Taylor

Over the course of "Gotham" Season 2, Oswald Cobblepot suffered some pretty major blows when his mother was killed by Theo and Tabitha Galavan, his father Elijah was murdered not long after they first met and Hugo Strange experimented on him. According to star Robin Lord Taylor, all of this will follow the character into Season 3 as he becomes more ruthless than ever.

"Oswald will try to be the most powerful man he can be," Taylor told French outlet PureBreak. "He learned so much in Season 2. Now he has the means and knowledge, he knows what it is to be the king of Gotham and how difficult it is. On the death of his mother, Nygma told him, 'You're free to do whatever you want now. To love someone is to be weak, vulnerable.' Now he can be as ruthless as he wants. I think he will take that advice."

Cory Michael Smith, who plays the Riddler, also added that he and Taylor will have "many scenes together."

"Gotham" will return to Fox for its third season this fall.
