Everyone assumed that season one’s Jerome, played by Cameron Monaghan, would become the show’s version of The Joker. Surprisingly, he was killed off early in the second season of Gotham. Producers later confirmed that Jerome would eventually inspire the character who would go on to become the real Joker.
Many believed that Joker might actually be a female character and they might not be wrong. We have what may be our first look at this female Joker, played by Lori Petty.
Titled “This Ball of Mud and Meanness,” the episode is officially described as follows:
“Alfred and Selina help Bruce on his quest to find his parents’ killer, Matches Malone (guest star Michael Bowen). Meanwhile, Gordon follows up with Edward Nygma on Kristen Kringle’s whereabouts and Hugo Strange (guest star BD Wong) continues his treatment to reduce Penguin’s aggression.”
