Do you know what killed the dinosaurs? A meteor, probably. But if you said “The ice age!” good news—you’re wrong, but you’ll be happy to know that Bat-villain Mr. Freeze will make his debut on tonight’s fall finale of Gotham.

Via USA Today:

Fans will get a glimpse at Wayne Enterprises cryogenics engineer Victor Fries, played by Nathan Darrow (House of Cards), before his bigger story begins to be told when the show comes back Feb. 29. [...]

Fries is going to make his full presence — and his freeze gun — felt very quickly, though Darrow notes that folks will have to wait till the winter break ends to see his full struggle in saving his terminal ill wife Nora (Kristen Hager) and the toll it takes on him.

Apparently Darrow is already shooting his third episode, so it looks like he’s sticking around for a while. I can only imagine what erotic massage parlors he may visit or how many cheerleaders he may murder, but honestly, all I really need is for him to fill each episode with as many cold-themed puns as possible.

I sincerely doubt Gotham will fail me in this regard.
