Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 13

“I’ll Give You A Clue” Batwoman has Sophie deal with a resurgent criminal that she was responsible for putting away some years ago with a taste for puzzles. This season has been relatively light on “villain of the week” type stories in favour of arc driven storytelling. It’s somewhat jarring to have a one shot…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 12

“Initiate Self Destruct” Batwoman deals with identity as the Crows close in on identifying Ryan through her blood sample, Alice questions who she is in the midst of her complex feelings for Ocean and Kate makes a reappearance. One way or another identity will always be part of a superhero story whether that be juggling…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 11

“Arrive Alive” Batwoman has Ryan and Sophie team up to bring down the False Face Society through some high octane Fast and Furious style undercover work. My guess is that there was some sort of network driven request to do a homage to the Fast and Furious franchise this season particularly when one of the…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 10

“Time Off For Good Behaviour” Batwoman features the beginning of the promise to be a symbol of hope and progress within Gotham as Roman Sionis continues his plan to peddle his dangerous drug. The previous episode featured a promise from Ryan that Team Batwoman would be focused around enacting real change in Gotham rather than…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 9

“Rule #1” Batwoman introduces a new threat as the characters pick up the pieces from the apparent death of Kate Kane. There’s very much a transitional quality to this episode following the resolution of the Coryana plot along with the search for Kate Kane in the previous episode. Ultimately the search proved fruitless as Kate…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 8

“Survived Much Worse” Batwoman has all its ongoing plots converge on Coryana as many of the major characters find themselves on the mysterious island in search of either Kate or the Desert Rose. The search for Kate Kane makes sense as a plot given the circumstances of her death/disappearance and her connection to the characters…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 7

“It’s Best You Stop Digging” Batwoman continues the race against time to find the way to Coryana and Alice has some of the details of her missing memories filled in. It’s very likely that one of the main thrusts of this season is a redemptive arc for Alice which is a difficult proposition considering everything…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 6

“Do Not Resuscitate” Batwoman furthers the concerns around Ryan’s injury as Alice tries to piece together her missing memories of Ocean and Safiyah’s island. Different characters have their attention in different directions but everything continues to be in service of finding Kate. The default belief has changed from her being dead to her being kidnapped…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 5

“Gore on Canvas” Batwoman continues the search for Kate Kane by exploring a couple of leads that will hopefully uncover the location of Safiyah’s hidden island. Doubling down on the mystery surrounding Kate’s disappearance is a risky proposition for this show as it will need to be resolved one way or another and it’ll be…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 4

“Fair Skin, Blue Eyes” Batwoman draws on Ryan’s past to highlight the inequalities that exists within Gotham City when she gets wind of a missing child that conjures up memories of her own past. I’ve mentioned before but a notable thing about Ryan being the lead of this show instead of Kate is that her…
