It looks like Gotham is set to dip its toes into the Joker pond again.
We had the superb story arc based around Jerome at the start of Season 2 – yes, i said superb, deal with it – and at the end of that it was hinted that Joker’s lunacy was a virus, a contagious condition that almost anyone could catch. And now it looks like someone else who has caught it is set to cause trouble for Jim Gordon and the meant of GCPD.
The image above was released by FOX and is from episode 2.14 – This Ball of Mud and Meanness – and features Lori Petty – she of Tank Girl and Point Break fame – as what looks to be a female Joker.
We love that Petty is a possible Joker! We’re confident she’s not THE Joker but will become part of his legacy on the show.
We’ll be tuning in… will you?
