New Gotham Stills Preview the Return of a Major Villain--With a Twist
Gotham has become increasingly dependent on insane versions of classic DC villains, so it only makes sense that they would bring back a huge villain that they've already killed off- but gender-swapped and on crack. New stills from the upcoming episode, "This Ball of Mud and Meanness," preview a proto version of the most famous Batman villain of all time—again.

Possible spoilers ahead! (Click to reveal)

The episode features guest star Lori Petty, who apparently plays some kind of early version of the Joker. When Jerome was killed off earlier this season, it was teased that there would be many imitation Jokers leading up to the real one, but really, how many Jokers could they possibly have?


Here are a few more stills from "This Ball of Mud and Meanness," including a hilarious shot of Jim crowd-surfing:
