(WARNING: The following contains content from the most recent episode of Fox's 'Gotham.' If you aren't yet all caught up, then mild SPOILERS can be found below...)

Fox's Gotham has long since turned Joker-themed Easter Eggs into a televised cottage industry, with the show's dedication to the art having proved deep and true. Not only have we seen multiple teases of potential Jokers (though we're all still assuming it's probably you know who, right?), but pretty much every episode has contained some sort of ever-so-subtle nod to the legendary villain.

As it turns out, though...

(Note, this is where those aforementioned SPOILERS really start to kick in.)

The Latest Joker Tease In 'Gotham' Might Just Be The Show's Biggest Yet

After all, that sure does look to be a Joker-like grin made up of bright-red laughter on the wall up there, completely distracting from Mr. Freeze's recent armored entrance.

And honestly, what could be more of a Joker-themed reference than that?

I mean, it's not like Jared Leto's take on the character is completely covered in red grins and "ha ha ha" tattoos or anything...

The big question now, though?

What Does That Mean For 'Gotham'?

After all, Jerome, the young man widely assumed to be the show's "real" Joker (likely future plot twists notwithstanding), is currently very, very dead, suggesting that the creator of that striking wall art is more likely one of the Joker-lite types who were inspired by his chaotic antics.

Unless, of course, Hugo Strange has somehow managed to bring him back from the dead — or is that set to wait for a future season?

What do YOU reckon?


Who created that Joker-like street art?
