This article contains spoilers from Gotham Season 3.
Despite its tendancy to focus on fresh and exciting storylines not seen in the comic books, #Gotham has taken the #Batman mythology to a whole new level during the third season. We've seen the arrival of the Mad Hatter and the rebirth of Poison Ivy, and the Penguin even ran for mayor.
Since the hit Fox series returned from its winter hiatus last week, Edward Nygma has become the Riddler. Meanwhile, after forming an alliance with Ivy, Oswald Cobblepot will exact revenge on Nygma in next week's episode when he joins forces with another chilling Batman villain. Yes, you guessed it — Mr. Freeze is coming back to Gotham in next week's episode. Check out the preview below:

A Villainous Union
Throughout #GothamSeason3, Cobblepot discovered that he had romantic feelings for Nygma and, as the prince of puzzles did not reciprocate these feelings, Cobblepot killed Nygma's girlfriend, ending their friendship. Nygma retaliated by attempting to murder Cobblepot.
With Cobblepot's near death experience leading him to the conclusion that Nygma must die, the latest instalment of the Batman prequel series found the fine feathered fink in the debt of Ivy Pepper, who rescued him from Gabe's men. Ivy and Penguin came to an understanding and together, they plan to free some Indian Hill inmates so that Penguin can reclaim what is his — that's clearly where Freeze will come in.
Victor Fries initially appeared on Gotham during the second season and, after losing his wife Nora, he became the villainous Mr. Freeze. The character has been absent during the third season — and with the Penguin in need of friends, who better to solve his problems than the chilling ice man?
With Ivy already on his side, it looks like Oswald Cobblepot is set to make his mark on Gotham City in next week's episode. No matter what happens next, nothing will ever be the same again.
Gotham airs Mondays on Fox at 8/7c.
