Batwoman RECAP and REVIEWS (7)

    A Mad Tea-Party

    As far as fall finales go, Batwoman Season 1 Episode 8 manages to deliver high drama while setting us up for some serious comeuppance in the back half (middle third now I guess with the full episode order) of the season.

    To get at the heart of the matter, there are three major relationship shifts to address.

    Each of them opens a door to potential future conflict and character development. None of them bode well for Kate.

    Let's start with the one I honestly couldn't care less about -- Sophie and Tyler.

    Despite Sophie determinedly choosing to ignore any feelings she still harbors for Kate and commit herself to her marriage on Batwoman Season 1 Episode 7, Tyler can't take that at face value apparently.

    Fair enough. The woman you married hid a previous relationship and an entire aspect of her sexuality from you. We get it. Things are complicated.

    Maybe it's because we've never seen these two interact when they ar...

    Tell Me the Truth

    Messy can be fun, and Batwoman Season 1 Episode 7 makes a real effort to mess with everyone in sight.

    It's more than just sleight-of-hand (although Alice does one of those).

    There are some genuine moments of "WTH?" surprise wrapped up in a slightly convoluted plot about preserving the uniqueness of the coil accelerator weapon Mouse stole from Hamilton Dynamics on Batwoman Season 1 Episode 6.

    There are also some awesome little tidbits that provide insight and backstory on the characters who we've, really, just met.

    Firstly (and most kick-assly), is the arrival of Julia Pennyworth. 

    Forget Alfred. I want a series about his secret agent daughter.

    Besides providing exposition on the VotW, Rifle, and enjoying a Chinese takeaway dinner as much as the next night-owl, Julia starts to fill in Kate's story after Kate's expulsion from the military academy.

    No one can be a lone wolf fore...

    I'll Be Judge, I'll Be Jury

    While Batwoman Season 1 Episode 6 fulfilled a sort of "ripped-from-the-comics" entertaining adventure, it suffered from two major flaws.

    The first is a bit petty, I'll admit.

    It's a wonky detail that either wasn't thought through thoroughly or is missing key context to make it make sense.

    In the opening scene, Angus Stanton was walking into the parking lot talking on his cell phone when he got confronted by the Executioner standing on the other side of the downed power pole and smashed car. 

    When the Executioner opened the hydrant and water began flowing towards Stanton, why in the world did he try to escape by climbing a metal fence?

    He didn't ENTER the parking lot by climbing a fence, so why would he try to leave that way?

    Granted, the Executioner is pretty freaky-looking. MAYBE Stanton was in such a...

    Mine is a Long and a Sad Tale

    Oh, ick. Batwoman Season 1 Episode 5 lands a lot of emotional punches, but its first is the gag-inducing intro of Alice peeling patches of skin off of corpse thighs. Urgh.

    But it definitely got our attention. And Luke's. And Batwoman's.

    And it's nicely timed for Halloween, I guess.

    This was Alice's episode from start to finish. No VotW to muddy the waters. Not even a heist (besides the skin thing) to boost the action.

    Even the scenes that didn't directly feature Alice or her backstory still involved Alice and her backstory.

    Who Are You?

    It's all about facing the truth on Batwoman Season 1 Episode 4 and the uncomfortable truth for viewers is that this is a show determined not to conform to expectations.

    We have a hero who doesn't know how to hero, a techie just figuring out the tech, and a security firm who couldn't secure ducks in a barrel.

    Honestly, at first, I was frustrated.

    There is so much potential in this female-led, out-and-proud, visually engaging comic book adaptation but it kept JUST missing the mark for me somehow.

    I was looking for my CW Superhero signposts.

    Where's the slick central protagonist vigilante with an arsenal of honed skills, able to take down enemies with flawless execution?

    Where's the genius, all-seeing, infallible centra...

    If there's any single lesson Batwoman Season 1 Episode 3 lays out for us, it's that Gotham is crazy-making.

    The villains are nuts.

    Some are randomly chaotic, some truly evil. But the good guys have their own issues with childhood trauma, over-bearing parents, or naive delusions of messianism.

    One can only assume that the people who choose to continue to live there enjoy the crazy or are secretly just as crazy as the heavy hitters.

    Even those who have the means to get away and STAY away cannot help but return and demonstrate their insanity.

    Case in point: Tommy Elliot.

    He's an entitled one-percent asshat. Now, he's inviting you to show off his new douche chateau?

    The Rabbit Hole

    First things first. I think riding a motorcycle while wearing a cape has to be a superpower in and of itself.

    There are several moments on Batwoman Season 1 Episode 2 where I was SURE that floor-length cape was going take Gotham's newest defender down while she patrolled the city on the Batcycle.

    Maybe the cape has gravity/wheel defying tech in it. Kate wouldn't know, after all. She didn't even realize her armor was bulletproof.

    A running joke between Kate and Luke seems to be the fact neither has any idea what most of Bruce Wayne's tech does.

    Luke: Did you get the suit wet?
    Kate: Okay, so I couldn't find the auto-dry function?
    Luke: Yeah, cause it's not a thing.
    Kate: Ten point eight MILLION dollar suit. Kind of feels like an oversight. Just saying.
