New Gotham Promo Preserves Jerome’s Legacy


Gotham may be taking the week off due to the NFL Draft, but the network has thankfully offered up something new to help tide us over during the brief hiatus. Not surprisingly, it has everything to do with the unfolding Joker situation, which makes the break doubly painful to endure as the season is essentially nearing the home stretch.

If you’ve been keeping up with the series, then you’re well aware of how Jerome Valeska is no longer among the living (again). But regardless of that, his infernal legacy will reluctantly live on through his twin brother, Jeremiah, who is in the process of transitioning to this show’s version of the Joker for all intents and purposes. True, it looks like he may be referred to as “J” for now, but we’ll take what we can get.

Getting back to the topic of the newly released promo that can be viewed at the top, it shows us a video tape containing Jerome’s Last Will and Testament, which demands that Jim Gordon throw the departed villain a wake – and at the GCPD, no less.

What ensues is a circus of the most insane order, something that appears to knock over the next domino in the line which’ll give way to the introduction of the Clown Prince of Crime. Either way, consider me as being glued to my seat once this baby actually hits airwaves.
