    I love Carol Kane, so I'm all for this.

    My only complaint is "Kapelput"? Really? Did they think Tikettel was too on the nose?

    Is she meant to be German, though, by that surname?

    It was a joke. A bad one apparently, but a joke all the same.

    I took Kapelput to be her maiden name as her son is listed as "Oswald Cobblepot" on his character poster. I guess he could have changed it, but I'm still so used to the Cobblepots being up there with the Waynes as one of the oldest names in Gotham that I hadn't even thought of the possibility at first.

    I got it. I was just too asleep at first. Sorry.

    Interesting that they're bringing Oswald's mother into the show -- I look forward to how they play with that relationship, since she might be the one person he truly loves.

    Fantastic news. Thoroughly.
    Anonymous un-vetted tumblr & reddit posters are the most significant voices in social politics today. If you're paranoid and forget there's a world out there.

    The name confuses me too.
    So either the Cobblepots won't be one of the founding families of Gotham anymore and instead Cobblepot is just something Oswald changed his name into.
    Or through some random and strange coincidence, Penguin's father and mother happened to have a somewhat similair sounding name.
    Not fond of either of those options.

    I'd throw out too many preconceived notions as to what is going to happen in the series. The "founding families of Gotham" thing was a relatively recent addition to the mythology, at that.

    Or, she could've kept her family/maiden/birth name when she got married, as had occurred with Lily in How I Met Your Mother.

    Where does that "one of the oldest families in Gotham" thing come from? And why, if you feel it's super important/useful to Penguin and/or this TV show, do you feel that way?
