Reader beware, Gotham spoilers ahead. If you haven’t got the chance to check out last night’s winter finale, “The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies,” be sure to do so before you continue reading.
Ready? Great. So, yesterday’s episode was just amazing, Bruce continues on his path to become a legend, the Nygma and Oswald story was pretty well handled, and most importantly Jerome wasn’t killed again! He just got a little of his face punched out, and his arc came to a perfect end for now.
Cameron Monaghan is definitely doing awesome work as The Joker, or at least his Joker-like character, and it would be a shame to see him leave. Recently talking to Comicbook.com, the actor admitted he doesn’t know about when or how we’ll see Jerome back, but when he returns you can be sure he’ll push things even further.
‘I’m not exactly sure where they’re going to go with it, but character wise what’s great about Jerome is that a sane person, when they do something extreme, will try to wind it back; but every time he takes a step forward, he never takes a step back. he just pushes it further, he goes bigger, he goes more violent, more mean, and so obviously the next time he comes back he’s going to be trying to top himself in any way he can’ the actor explained.
What’s great about this is that it sounds like the perfect progression for The Joker. He just keeps getting crazier without ever looking back, and enjoying it every step of the way.
What did you think of last night’s episode? Are you looking forward to see what’s in store for Jerome? Be sure to check out our review and sound off in the comments below.
