So far, Gotham is doing a bang-up job making us believe that Jerome (Cameron Monaghan – who’s truly SUPERB in the role) is the Clown Prince of Crime.
And if that’s the goal, Monaghan is definitely hitting the bullseye with his take on Batman’s greatest foe. In next week’s episode, titled “The Last Laugh,” Jerome pays a disturbing visit to his biological dad. I wouldn’t want to be the one sitting in that chair. When I think he was just a sweet lad (albeit one living in a circus) before he murdered his mom as he found out he’d been lied to concerning the identity of his paternal, it sends chills down my spine.
Now that he’s broken out of Arkham Asylum, Jerome will find his way to his real father, and from the looks of this new sneak peek below, I bet ya this father/son reunion won't make us go all mushy inside.
Gordon and Bullock track down a nemesis from the past, leading to a standoff between Jerome (guest-star Cameron Monaghan) and Gordon. Meanwhile, a magic show at the Gotham Children's Hospital gala turns into a hostage situation in the all-new Rise of the Villains: The Last Laugh episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, October 5th on FOX
What do you think of Cameron Monagahan’s take on the Joker Jerome so far?
