Batwoman: Are We Having Fun Yet?

After a season of family drama, “flashback villains” (I love that term), and strained relationships, things are finally coming to a close for season three of Batwoman. As with several Arrowverse shows, the fate of the series hasn’t been decided yet as far as renewal versus cancellation.

Batwoman: We’re All Mad Here

Batwoman’s third season is just about over, and it’s been a wild ride. While a lot of things have been dealt with, we still the menace of Marquis Jet: Joker-wannabe, Alice’s worsening mental state, Ryan’s love life, and some family dynamics to deal with.

Batwoman: Broken Toys

Now, the team races to recover a lot of lost items (they really need to get better at holding on to their stuff) and a new character is introduced to the Bat-mythos that fills a role I don’t think they’ve ever touched on before. They really are having a lot of problems with “Broken Toys.” The episode also continues the Arrowverse tradition of letting the cast direct, as Camrus Johnson (Luke Fox) takes over for this episode.

Batwoman: Pick Your Poison

Batwoman has had a very busy third season, as new versions of Bat-foes emerge, family complications ensnare everyone, and difficult choices loom. Now we see Mary infected by Poison Ivy, Alice causing her usual chaos, and a new threat emerging.

Batwoman: Antifreeze

Batwoman and company have their hands full this season. The stolen trophies from Batman’s vault are continuing to make their lives difficult, and now Ryan’s birth mother is causing problems for everyone. Just to make things more complex, her brother is playing a different game and seems to be not overly concerned with possible consequences.

Batwoman: Loose Tooth

The theme of the third season of Batwoman seems to be the trophies from former Batman foes giving rise to new villains. They did Mad Hatter well, but I was puzzled by the title of “Loose Tooth.” The only Bat-foe I could think of that might work for was Killer Croc, and I couldn’t see how that would give rise to a new version. They actually handled it pretty well.
