Fox’s Batman prequel Gotham was no exception, as “Queen Takes Knight” introduced the primary half of the season’s conflicts to a boil, whereas additionally organising what’s going to occur within the present’s subsequent set of episodes. One of many greatest cliffhanger moments of the episode featured the return of fan favourite Jerome. The present’s reply to the Joker shall be interacting with The Penguin from inside Arkham Asylum, and sequence star David Mazouz (aka Bruce Wayne) not too long ago teased the anarchy that the villain shall be bringing to the again half of Season four when he inevitably escapes the Asylum.
The second half of the season will mark one of many worst episodes in Gotham but. And, the more serious the episode is for Gotham, the higher it’s for viewers, proper? Jerome will staff up with some lower than likable villains and they’re going to take over the town and will probably be a horrible, horrible fiasco.

His face appears to be therapeutic properly from inside Arkham Asylum, though he is no much less creepy.
However Jerome’s Season four battle ought to be fairly totally different from his earlier goes on the prequel sequence. As a result of this time round Bruce has change into a succesful (albeit tremendous moody) vigilante. This would be the closest factor we’re wish to see of a Joker/Batman battle within the sequence.

The one distinction this time is that Bruce is concerned. It is not simply going to be Gordon and the GCPD taking them down. Bruce now has some bearings on what it means to take down a villain and he shall be very concerned in that as a vigilante.
