Gotham: New Pics From Epi 214 Show Female Joker

Is Gotham about to gender-swap Batman's most infamous baddie?

Fox has dropped a batch of stills from the March 14 episode of Gotham, and a few of the pics appear to show a female Joker. Lori Petty is playing a character named "Jeri" in the epi, and she's sporting white face paint and the familiar Joker grin.

The showrunner of the Fox drama has stated a female Joker was a possibility, but we have no confirmation Petty's character is the legendary villain.
