Gotham season 5: Two new Cameron Monaghan teases of Jeremiah’s return

Gotham season 4 episode 21It’s absolutely true that there are many different reasons to be excited for Gotham season 5. You’ve got great characters, an intense story, and of course the opportunity to see Cameron Monaghan’s Jeremiah become even more like the Joker we all know from the Batman comics.

As you probably imagined, this particular article is going to be mostly about the latter … which shouldn’t be a shock given the social-media posts we are referring to here. In a pair of posts on Instagram (which CarterMatt has for you below), you can get a sense of Monaghan’s latest take on this character. One of the fun things about Jerome / Jeremiah is that it feels as though the writers have cultivated a totally unique take for this character just about every single time that we see him. Sometimes, he is bright and colorful, whereas at other points, he is dark and menacing. These two new images seem to hint at a combination of the two.

As for the amount of danger he presents to the surrounding world, it feels pretty immense — Jerome flexed some of his villain muscles at the end of season 4 with the bombings of Gotham and, moving forward, there is a variety to what he could do. This is a character who easily could pull off something violent and gruesome, but also could take on a mission that is specific and somewhat restrained. The Joker uses his psychosis almost as a lead-off point to his actions, but it is wrong to call him completely chaotic as a character. He does have specific motivations, with taking out Batman being fairly high on the list.

Given what happened with Jeremiah and Bruce at the end of last season, it feels fair to say that Mr. Wayne will remain high on his hit list.
