Alright guys and gals we had another great episode brought to us tonight and it was really good! We finally got our first weekly villain for Batwoman to face off against! So let’s get to this review!
So we got our first weekly villain in this episode, the first is known as Magpie (Rachel Matthews) which I’m actually happy they used a villain that is not very well known in the Bat family, yes she has had her fair share of encounters against Batman but this is the first ever encounter that she’s had with Kate/Batwoman (Ruby Rose) and for this series to bring in a villain that a lot of people ask who she is, is a good introduction and I’m sure we will be seeing more of her in future episodes or seasons.
I have to say I love seeing Kate and Reagan (Brianne Howey) together they are so adorable together and I was really hoping that their relationship would’ve lasted longer but I also feel this isn’t the last time we’ve seen Reagan. I have a feeling that there’s eventually going to be a moment when Reagan gets saved personally by Batwoman and looks into her eyes by finding out that Kate is Batwoman. Maybe it will happen later on in this season, I would like to see them get back together and love each other.
I have to admit with this being the fourth episode this series is starting to have a lot of potential of becoming a really great series to go on for a very long time. I am definitely a fan of the series already and I love how they are always throwing down little nods to Batman villains like how they did in the last episode with the Riddler and in this episode with mentioning Killer Croc. I look forward to even more of the mentions.
Alice (Rachel Skarsten) is slowly getting her way back into the Kane family in her own ways. By at first torturing Jacob (Dougary Scott), then helping Kate to understand that she really is Beth or what’s left of her, then by trying to kill poor Mary (Nicole Kang) and now by trying her best to not physically but mentally hurt Catherine (Elizabeth Anweis) and it was because of this hurt that Catherine had no choice but to tell Jacob what she really did to fake Beth’s death. But now that Catherine has come clean, will this damage the family permanently or temporarily? And one has to wonder if Alice is truly trying to drive Jacob and Kate away from Catherine and Mary so she can have the two of them all to herself. It would be an interesting theory if that is her plan but we will find out soon I suppose.
And it looks like things are going to be getting even more interesting with next weeks episode but will the truth reveal what I’ve always suspected that Beth/Alice was held captive by Mad Hatter or will it be someone else? We’ll find out next week!
Next Episode: Batwoman(S01E05) “Mine Is a Sad and Long Tale” airs Sunday November 3, 2019 at 8/7c on The CW
