Here's what Lou Diamond Phillips had to say in an interview with Collider, when asked how this season is different from the first three seasons.
"What our writers - specifically Hunt Baldwin, John Coveny and Greer Shephard - have done is they've taken a thread and stretched it out over multiple episodes.

Last week, Jared Leto released a bizarre video that teased The Joker's look from the iconic comic book The Killing Joke, but photos from the actual set have been scarce.
