If you are one of Jerome’s loyal fans, then you will want to tune back into Gotham when the show returns next month. The fan-favorite villain gained a dedicated following, and many fans were upset to see Jerome killed off last season after being stabbed by Theo Galavan. However, it looks like the character is set to undergo a shocking revival, and the brand-new synopsis for Gotham’s midseason premiere is teasing fans with some juicy details.
Titled “Ghost,” the third season of Gotham will kick off with a thrilling episode. You can read the synopsis for it below:
“THE THINGS THAT HAUNT US ON AN ALL-NEW “GOTHAM” MONDAY, JANUARY 16, ON FOX. Falcone places a hit on Gordon after learning that he shot Mario. Gordon and Bullock discover a follower of Jerome (guest star Cameron Monaghan), who plans to bring him back to life. Meanwhile, Penguin spirals out of control before the biggest television interview of his Mayoral career, and Bruce and Selina deal with Selina’s mom’s return to Gotham in the all-new “Mad City: Ghosts” episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, Jan. 16 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX.”
Guest Cast: Ivana Milicevic as Maria Kyle, Paul Reubens as Elijah Van Dahl, Cameron Monaghan as Jerome Valeska, John Doman as Carmine Falcone, David Dastmalchian as Dwight Pollard, PJ Marshall as Cole Clemons, Jan Maxwell as Margaret Hearst, Dave Quay as Tarquin
Over the past few weeks, Cameron Monaghan has been teasing fans about his return to the series with a slew of buzzworthy pictures. Shortly before the holidays, a photo of Monaghan was shared from the set of Gotham, and his appearance was rather startling. The picture showed Morena Baccarin’s Leslie Thompkins leaning over Jerome’s corpse with a tight expression. Since fans have a synopsis for the premiere, they can understand why the medical practitioner looks so upset; If someone is really trying to bring Jerome back from the dead, then some very bad things could be awaiting her and her friends.
Aside from the set photo, Monaghan has also been quick to tease fans about his character’s connection to the Joker. Many fans believe that Jerome is Gotham’s iteration of the Joker, and the actor sent fans into a frenzy when he shared pictures of himself donning the Clown Prince’s scarred grin. While most of his social media shares have since been deleted, Monaghan was even seen donning one of the Joker’s suits from DC Comics’ New 52 line.
The synopsis has also informed fans that yet another character is set to return to Gotham. Elijah will make a comeback even though he died last season from sampling some poisoned wine. The character, who is played by Paul Reubens, is the father of the Penguin. So far, fans aren’t sure whether the man will be resurrected or simply used in a hallucinatory sequence, but Elijah will more than likely throw wrenches into the Penguin’s plans.
