Alright guys and gals we had another great episode brought to us tonight! We had another weekly villain brought to us, and so much more to talk about. So let’s get to this review!
So in this episode we had another weekly villain brought to our series, The Executioner (Jim Pirri) whose real name is Bertrand Eldon who was a man who worked for the law by being its Executioner but realized he was killing innocent lives and didn’t want to be apart of it anymore. So he chose to go after the people who “made him” do all those killings.
Now you all know how I like going into the comic book counterparts of the characters so for Executioner, he was a carnival worker that went by the name Willy Hooker who wanted to take justice in his own hands by the people who wronged him in the carnival. However he only was in one comic ‘Detective Comics no. 191’.
Things seem like they might be going into a dark place for Luke (Camrus Johnson) especially with the judge and the district attorney who was on his father’s death case might be one of the cases reopened. Now there have been a lot of different stories on how Lucius Fox died unexpectedly but he was always brought back to life I’m thinking because of fans hating to see him dead.
But in the series Lucius Fox is indeed dead and was murdered, which is a shame because it would’ve been nice to have him in the series maybe even see Luke working with the future of the Bat-family. But let’s hope we get answers to who really killed Lucius. I know in a video game of Batman, Lucius was killed by a bomb in Bruce’s office, I believe that video game was made by Telltale.
With the Kane family though, it seems like Kate/Batwoman (Ruby Rose) is going to have an even harder time trying to keep her Batwoman identity as a secret especially since Sophie (Meagan Tandy) knows Kate is Batwoman. Kate and her father Jacob (Dougary Scott) started to patch things up with what happened to Beth/Alice (Rachel Skarsten) all those years ago. But it doesn’t mean that Jacob will become a fan of Batwoman any time soon. It seems like he will continue hating her only because of the symbol.
But I think Jacob is giving Batman a little bit too much credit for creating all the villains of Gotham. I mean Joker would’ve been created one way or another, same with Clayface, Killer Croc; that’s only naming a few. I mean all of them would’ve been created one way or another just because Batman was flying around, fighting crime during their creation period doesn’t mean anything. Although that’s my opinion.
Real question is, will Sophie tell Jacob the real identity of Batwoman or keep it a secret? I’m hoping she will keep it a secret and help out Kate on Bat missions every now and then.
