The joke luckily wasn’t on “Gotham” fans Monday, as Fox released the long-awaited first look at Cameron Monaghan’s version of The Joker — er, “J,” as he’s known on the Batman prequel series.

Mentally and criminally insane just like his twin brother, Jerome, Jeremiah Valeska was really set onto his destiny-laden path in Episode 7 of Season 5, "Ace Chemicals," where he fell into a vat of toxic chemicals that disfigured his face forever. Currently catatonic over in Arkham Asylum, it looks like he's about to snap into the Joker persona for good.

Previously Monaghan teased to EW: “The character I most enjoyed playing is the one in the final episode that we haven’t seen yet… when you have an episode that’s a full-on Batman episode running around in the future, you’re going to have characters that you’ll expect to see.”

Earlier this week, Gotham confirmed that the final episode of the series would jump ahead in time to find Batman in action. “He’s in the episode. He’s not just in a last scene,” Stephens revealed at the spring TCAs. “The last episode is one scene in the timeline of the rest of the season, and then the rest of the episode is in the future. It almost feels, in a weird way, like another pilot.”

The Riddler didn’t make a grand return yet as a result of the mystery–we need the riddle maker to come back and show his evil presence.

Gotham is delivering its craziest premise as a curtain call here. Or maybe I should say "craziest thing that can happen to the city before Batman is even an idea in Bruce's brain."

Tabitha Galavan lets her quest for revenge against Penguin get the better of her, and she meets her end at his hand. What has up to this point been a pretty exciting episode then takes a giant leap forward, as all of a sudden the stakes are much higher.

At its heart, the story of Batman is one of a rich, privileged kid turning the murder of his parents into a mission to rectify the injustices of all the corrupt systems that operate within a city.
