Batwoman’s second season has been really impressive. They’ve combined action, character growth, and social issues into a compelling, ongoing narrative. Until this one.
There have been a lot of twists and turns in the second season of Batwoman. From a new character in the starring role to a major change in the big villain to finally seeing the Batmobile (seriously, Luke, where did you think it was?), I’d say “unexpected” is a good word for just about everything that’s happened.
Batwoman’s second, and very impressive, season is achieving a lot of complicated and difficult things at once. They’ve replaced their lead character, reoriented the main villain, and shaken things up for a few of the supporting characters. The show is also tackling social justice issues, and doing it in a good and engaging way.
The second season of Batwoman has had a lot of surprising twists and turns. We’ve hit the point where all roads lead to Coryana, and now most of our characters end up there. There are showdowns and surprises, and several disappointments, leading several characters to reflect they have “Survived Much Worse.”
This time around, there’s a bit of a change, as a character who is usually one of my favorites gets kind of obnoxious, and one I don’t care for that much gets some great scenes.
I really had no idea what to expect from the second season of Batwoman, and they manage to keep surprising me anyway. The new Batwoman has worked out brilliantly in almost every regard, Alice has an interesting new storyline, and Luke and Mary are left wrestling with grief and uncertainty after Kate’s disappearance.
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.
