Last episode ended with something shocking- Kate Kane losing control completely and strangling August Cartwright, killing him. While the man was undoubtedly evil, that’s a line that the Bat-clan isn’t supposed to cross.
One of the things that is really separating Batwoman from the other CW shows is that they are devoting a lot of time to character work and focusing on one major story, the twisted and tragic tale of Alice.
The Legends of Tomorrow have gone through a lot in their five seasons. Crew have come and gone, menaces have threatened and fallen, and the entire focus of the show has shifted several times. It’s a different show than it started off as, and it’s become one of my favorites.
Things have been complicated for Team Flash since the Crisis ended, and that continues in this episode. There’s a new threat to deal with, the return of an old enemy, and two friends come back as well.
As the season hits its end, the battle kicks into high gear on the streets of Freeland. At the risk of using a cliché, things really will never be the same for the show after this episode.
There have been a lot of developments this season, as Obsidian Tech prepares a whole new (virtual) world, Lena remains convinced she knows what’s best for everyone whether they agree, or even know, or not, Lex runs the DEO, and everyone else tries to adapt to the various changes wrought by Crisis.
They’ve drawn on a few different sources for story ideas of Batwoman. A lot of the ideas have come from the Bat-Family or various Gotham-based characters or situations, but they’ve also gone a little further afield.
The threat of the Markovians has been lurking for quite a while now on Black Lightning. Things are much more in the open now, and matters are coming to a head.
