Just last week, we reported that Fox's Gotham will set up The Joker's story line by the end of Season 1. Tonight, Fox gave us our first look at The Joker in a new trailer for next week's episode, "The Blind Fortune Teller", airing Monday, February 16 at 8 PM ET. Unfortunately, we only get a brief glimpse at The Joker, played by Cameron Monaghan, but hopefully we'll learn more about The Joker's plans before next week's episode debuts.
"The Blind Fortune Teller" follows Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as he takes Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin) to the circus, but the day turns quickly when the circus comes under attack. Then, Falcone enlists Butch Gilzean (Drew Powell) to help Penguin with the night club, while Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) is otherwise occupied. Also, Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) schedules a meeting with the Wayne Enterprises board in the all-new "The Blind Fortune Teller" episode of Gotham airing Monday, Feb. 16 (8:00-9:00 ET/PT) on Fox.
Cameron Monaghan's character is listed as "Jerome," along with other guest stars such as Carol Kane as Gertrude Kapelput, Anthony Carrigan as Victor Zsasz, Dashiell Eaves as Kelly, James Monroe Iglehart as Ringmaster, Robert Gorrie as John Grayson and Abbi Snee as Mary Lloyd. We don't know quite yet if The Joker will be featured in the rest of Gotham's Season 1 episodes, but we'll sure to keep you posted as soon as more information comes in. Until then, take a look at The Joker in this new trailer below.
