Jerome Has Seen Better Days in New Gotham Photos

The preview for Gotham‘s season 3 midseason premiere revealed that the series’ Joker-to-be character Jerome was set to return, despite dying in a previous episode of the series. Now, FOX has released new photos from episodes 3.12 and 3.13 that see Jerome looking a little worse for wear. What is notable about his brief, and slightly covered, appearance is that it appears his face is missing, not unlike The Joker himself from DC Comics’ “New 52 storyline.”

Check out the photos below and sound off with your thoughts in the comments!

Titled “Ghosts,” episode 3.12 is set to premiere Monday, January 16, with episode 3.13, titled “Smile Like You Mean It,” set to air the following week on January 23.
