When Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) arrived at Arkham Asylum on “Gotham,” chances are this isn’t the treatment he was expecting. Hugo Strange (BD Wong) is ready to rid Oswald Cobblepot of his violent tendencies and he’s willing to take very serious measures to do so.
“The delightful Hugo Strange decides to rehabilitate Oswald,” Taylor teases with a smile in Zap2it’s exclusive featurette. Wong adds, “It becomes a mini-arc of Hugo Strange kind of torturing — I’m sorry to laugh — kind of torturing Penguin.”
The torture being shown is just as mental as it is physical — if not more. Whatever Hugo is doing to the Penguin is clearly horrifying. Given what Stange has brewing down in Indian Hill though, anything short of horrifying is just not enough.
“Indian Hill is the uber-creepy place where Hugo Strange and all of his people are conducting any number of bizarre scientific experiments,” Wong says. “He’s really fascinated with reanimation.”
“Gotham” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
