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.
After the Crisis, and then the strangeness of the Alice/Beth affair, Batwoman and company could use a change of pace. “Normal” doesn’t really apply in Gotham most of the time, but something with lower stakes and less emotionally wrenching at least would be good for the heroes.
Batwoman has been a great series… until now.
Last episode of Batwoman ended on a major surprise. Somehow, likely as a result of the Crisis, Beth surprised Kate in her office. It was unexpected to say the least, and Kate really doesn’t do surprises well. She shares that with the late Oliver Queen.
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!”
