Gotham Sneak Peek: Penguin's New Family Serves an... Intense... Dinner

Tonight on Gotham (Fox, 8/7c), Oswald breaks bread with his new family, and the menu includes a chilling ghost story, a romantic-ish anecdote and a generous helping of glares.

As seen in the exclusive sneak peek above, Oswald’s long-lost and recently discovered father, Elijah Van Dahl (played by Paul Reubens), spins a haunting yarn about his sprawling home’s unsettling history. When Oswald then nudges Dad to share how he met his wife Grace (The O.C.‘s Melinda Clarke), the lady of the manor oddly bristles at the notion — only to be overruled.

Press play above to hear the “meet cute” tale… and see how it surfaces tensions among Grace and her own children.

Elsewhere in the episode “Prisoners,” Gordon must rely on a new friend as he faces threats and dangers inside prison walls.
