“If You Believe In Me, I’ll Believe In You,” has a dizzying series of reveals and surprises, the return of a character I liked a lot, and a very welcome development with one of the supporting characters.
Kate shockingly broke the hero code (which doesn’t seem to apply to most CW heroes anyway) when she lost it and killed August Cartwright. I’d argue the world is a better place without that psycho, but it’s taking a toll on Kate.
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.
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.
Batwoman has been a great series… until now.
While it’s often simply an overused, hyperbolic phrase, in this case it’s true: after the Crisis, things will never be the same. The first stop for the shows’ various returns is Gotham City, where Batwoman’s episode has an interesting title: “How Queer Everything Is Today!”
