When Gotham comes back on February 29, at least one popular character may be resurrected, according to Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon). Even though proto-Joker Jerome (Cameron Monaghan) seemed to meet his end with a stab to the neck in episode four of season two (and strong feelings were had), we still wanted there to be more of this entertainingly loony ginger, even if he isn’t the Joker. (Executive producer Bruno Heller said Jerome isn’t the Joker, but rather the “seed of the Joker,” and they haven’t cast a Joker yet.)

As we’ve seen throughout Gotham season two, the introduction of Dr. Hugo Strange (B.D. Wong) and his secret human experimentation facility has meant many of the criminals presumed dead are currently being experimented upon, including Firefly and Theo Galavan. Just because other presumably deceased characters (like Jerome and Fish Mooney) haven’t been shown to be in Dr. Strange’s “care” doesn’t prove they won’t be brought back. After all, nobody stays dead in comic books. Except Batman’s parents…

Anyway, here’s Ben McKenzie at Wizard World New Orleans telling Comic Book about characters being brought back (partial transcript below), followed by Erin Richards (Barbara Kean) deflecting rumors about her character coming back as an alternate version of Harley Quinn (or a gender-flipped Joker, as one rumor claimed).
