Gotham fans, the time has come! After lots of pleading and trending Twitter hashtags, the folks behind the FX drama have brought back a fan-favorite character. Tonight, audiences saw Jerome make a terrifying comeback to the show after being killed off last season, and he’s got revenge on his mind.
Of course, the character did not come back from the dead all in one piece. No, Jerome gained a few notable scars thanks to the process, and they looked gruesome to say at the least. So, naturally, one of Gotham's stars wants to share a behind-the-scenes photo of actor Cameron Monaghan getting dolled up for his role.
“Approach with extreme caution,” Sean Pertwee captioned a photo on Twitter. “Geniuses at work.” The actor, who plays Alfred, shared a photo of Monaghan lying down while make-up artists applied special FX prosthetics. The add-ons were blended into to make it look like Jerome had been gifted a brand-new face, and the grisly site is enough to make a more than a few stomachs turn.
You can read the synopsis for the next episode of Gotham titled “The Gentle Art of Making Enemies” below:
“With Jerome (guest star Cameron Monaghan) on the loose with one target in mind, Bruce and Alfred's safety is compromised. Meanwhile, Gordon’s uncle Frank (guest star James Remar) pays him a visit, and Nygma and Penguin are forced to confront their issues face-to-face, with possible deadly consequences.”
The regular cast features Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Morena Baccarin as Leslie Thompkins, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/the future Riddler, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean, Maggie Geha as the future Poison Ivy, Michael Chiklis as Detective Nathaniel Barnes, and Benedict Samuel as Mad Hatter.
