Gotham Teases Jerome Forming an Alliance with an Established Character

A recent article by Comic Book, John Stephens confirms that Jerome Valeska will not also return in season 4 but also will be striking up an alliance with an established character, who Jerome has not interacted with in any way shape or form yet.

This established character is, in fact, the Penguin of all people. How this will come about we don’t know yet, however it does allow for both a previous unexplored dynamic between both characters. The Penguin of this continuity is a man who sees as Gotham’s one true hope for order It also gives a good idea at how specifically Jerome could to develop if he is to become the Joker. As Stephens himself says.

“You’re totally gonna see him (Jerome) this year,”You’re gonna see him in a new position this year, and he’s gonna form an alliance with a character who he has not been near at any time soon.”
Essentially, we’re gonna see him and Oswald Cobblepot come closer,”

One of the few commonalities between the numerous incarnations of the Joker is that he always involved with crime before becoming the Joker. This backstory ranges being forced to be a part of the Red Hood Gang, a willing leader of the Red Hood Gang, or a gangster with ties to the Gotham Mob. Having a foray into organized crime could bring Jerome even closer on the path to becoming the Joker as we know him, or as much can know him anyway.

Gotham is set to return this Thursday, September 21st @ 8 pm est.
