Today it’s all about the Batwoman TV show on this blog as the season finale is about to be aired today (9 PM on the CW)!
Of course, I have seen many season finales of many TV shows over all the years…it’s always a bittersweet feeling for me.
Especially with a show that I follow so intensively like this one. Even before the episode airs it’s a bitter feeling as the fact that it will be the last episode until October 13.
Luckily the show does come back for another season (and hopefully some more beyond that) and the break is much shorter than it usually would be.
It’s also a sweet feeling! After all the build-up towards the season finale….I expect a lot of action and drama in it…and a nasty cliffhanger to keep the tension towards season 3. 😉
And from what was already teased and released….A LOT will happen in this episode! As we already could see in promo pictures, Batwing will make his debut in this one!
Also team Batwoman has to fight Circe, Black Mask, and all his goons, incl. Tavaroff who will receive a special “treatment” 😉
And on top of that…they have to do that without all the gadgets that Circe sole! Luke will have a lot on his “to do” list. Not only he needs to make another suit for Ryan, but he also has to make his Batwing suit as well plus some gadgets for both of them. I wonder how he will pull that off…. I wouldn’t be surprised if he would get help….but from who? That is the big question!
They have to find a way to bring Kate back and restore her memory fully. Does someone have the password that Enigma used on her? Will Kate be herself at the end of the episode? Or will she still be Circe and will be a villainess for season 3?
Many questions that need answers! Can’t wait to see the episode tomorrow as I can’t see it live. I will need to be VERY cautious tomorrow to avoid spoilers until I can watch the episode.
Here is a promo poster that the CW made for the finale:
Interestingly Circe-Kate isn’t on it, but Jacob is. He wasn’t shown in the last episode, will he be even shown at all ….besides maybe a phone call scene?
What about Julia and Angelique? Both are missing from the show for quite a while now….. But it would be cool if at least one of them would make an appearance!
I can imagine that Julia might arrive in Gotham just in time to make a difference in the final battle 😉
And what will Alice’s role be in that finale and beyond that? Pretty sure she has a score to settle with Black Mask as well and perhaps she will end up fighting side by side with team Batwoman in this one.
Here are some (selected) promo pictures for the episode:

And here is the trailer:
Can’t wait to see the episode tomorrow and I will post my review on Tuesday!
Thanks to the friendly guy who recommended me this scene!
Especially as it is a scene from a long-running TV show that I don’t find easily ….if I am not watching it.

And here is the video:
…..WHY…. don’t I find burglars like her in my apartment? 😉
Watch the video first!
Ok, let’s start with what I would change about this scene. The scuffle should be at least a little longer. Also, it would be great if there would be an attempted unmasking before the actual successful one. And… it would be much better if we would see her face AS the mask gets removed, sadly the camera only shows her unmasked face as a result of the unmasking.
On the good side…. there is quite a lot! The actress under the mask is hot, the fight is well made and I like her simple, but effective mask! She is concealed really well and it’s great that the two know each other. It’s interesting that the burglar really likes the other woman but decided to put up a fight and not just unmasked herself. Good decision! 😉
They are working together later in the episode, but sadly, she only wears her burglar outfit, but not the mask. Otherwise, I would have posted these scenes as well.
Wanna know from which episode of which TV show this is?
That one is on my upload list for a while and it’s time to post this one!
This one features Jet Li VS some evil folks on motorcycles. And as you can guess, not all of them are men 😉
They all are wearing helmets with mirrored visors, so our evil biker chicks is fully concealed.

Here is the video:
Watch the video before you continue!
Yeah, not exactly a “traditional” unmasking, but I like the reveal.
It isn’t even clear to the audience that that biker is a woman, so the surprise is quite nice. Pretty sure that might be a man on the bike before she finally flew to the ground.
What I really don’t like is what happens after the reveal. He realizes it’s a woman he fighting and then he doesn’t want to fight her because he wouldn’t hit a woman.
What a sexist crap is that? Yeah, the movie is 20 years old, but damn, it’s just so disrespectful to her. She is a skilled fighter who wants to kill him and he doesn’t take her seriously.
And the whole thing to use the other woman to hit her….oh man. Silly, embarrassing comedy….in my opinion.
I cut the scene some seconds short to avoid problems with youtube. She falls on that metal bar and gets impaled what they show with a weird sort of (unbloody) x-ray animation as the metal thing goes through her heart.
I’m not a fan of this show, and it was already canceled by Cancelflix after just one season with 8 episodes.
Even the season had only 8 episodes you could have easily told the story in 3 or 4 episodes.
And the idea to explain the backstory of (most of) the heroes in back flashes throughout the whole season(!) was really bad in my opinion.
But let’s focus on the good parts! The show provided two interesting scenes after all.
Let’s start with the most interesting one!

The scenes weren’t welcome on Youtube, so check it out:
…sorry, had to remove it…..you are too late…
Watch the video first before you continue!
Ok, the bad news is…..that was her only scene in this mask and costume in the entire show. What a wasted potential…. 🙁
The costume is pretty great! Also I love the mask, it disguises Raikou’s face well and the material is well chosen! Ok, the cowl could use a chin strap for security reasons…but ok, not a major flaw.
Would have been so great to have seen her in more scenes…especially if some bad guys would get curious to see the face under that mask! 😉
It’s great that some of the masked “henchfolks” are actually (masked!) henchWOmen! It’s a pretty cool trend that the bad guys nowadays employ female fighters as well for their evil deeds. 10-20 years ago you could barely find any henchWOmen at all. I like the masks that they are wearing, a nice bonus feature!
