I got really attached to both Marian and the Nightwatchman in their adventures over 2 seasons of this show.
And know she is trapped, pinned down by Guy, he rips off her eye mask….finally he realizes the Nightwatchman is a woman.
I guess he also realizes now that it’s his beloved Marian under the mask of his hated Nightwatchman.
He slowly yanks down the fabric that still covers her face pretty well.
Finally, the Nightwatchman is UNMASKED!
There is quite a lot I really love about this EPIC unmasking!
The fight is done quite well, and the way she reacts to her more and more desperate situation is great.
She really sells the fear very well as her face gets exposed by him.
He is so shocked that it is Marian that he runs away at first.
He stills doubts that it was her all the time, wanting the see the scar he inflicted on the vigilante.
So, as she is forced to show that scar it’s like a second unmasking …in a way.
Perhaps a “NO!” or a “STOP!” would have been nice as he was about to unmask her…but she always stay silent in his presence as she was concerned he would recognize her voice….or at least realize that the Nightwatchman IS a woman.
So, it fits quite well, that she didn’t protest as he was unmasking her.
Well….I think this is one of the most thrilling unmaskings ever made in a movie or TV show. Especially I was so into the storyline after having seen over 20 episodes with her.
Ok, the Nightwatchman should have had more appearances, but well…I posted all 7 scenes of her….so, that’s not too bad.
Spoilers about Marian’s future in the show…..
Tragically this unmasking indirectly leads to Marian’s death just 2 episodes later as Gisborne is now really enraged.
At the end of season 1, she was already presumed dead. The producer loved the strong reaction of the audience as I saw in the bonus material on the Blu-ray set.
So they came up with the idea to “top” that and kill her off, this time for real!
I don’t like that decision at all, even it is a drastic and unusual way to kill off the big love of the main character! That was certainly not expected.
Of course, that also means that there were no more Nightwatchman scenes in the final third season, which was just ok for me.
I will re-watch seasons 1 and 2 at some point….but not season 3 😉
I really like this scene big time! By this time I care about her in the show a lot and really rooting for her. She gets trapped in that room, the evil Guy of Gisborne is just outside the door, breaking it down pretty quickly. With the axe and the damaged doors he somehow reminds me a lot of a certain Jack N. in “The Shining” 😉 , especially as he is watching her through the damaged door.
You can see the fear on her face, she is breathing heavily through the cloth cover above her mouth. She now she can’t escape….he is outside the door and there are plenty of guards there as well.
A great setting!
As soon they rush in they would overpower her sooner or later and then would UNMASK her! Her life as well as her father’s life would be in grave danger as the Nightwatchman is a big enemy of the Sheriff. He would also find the woman that he loves under the mask….but she is in love with someone else…..
The way he sneakily attacks her with that dagger….wow….worthy of a real villain.
Of course, she survives that in the end, even she actually seemingly dies.
But that was revealed one episode later….providing a major cliffhanger.
As I already knew she would be in season 2….I wasn’t surprised….but imagining watching the show back then when it first aired….they surely tortured the audience quite well. 😉
I somehow totally missed this TV show and in the end, the recommendation lead to me buying every three seasons of it on Blu-ray.
Each season has “only” 13 episodes but they greedily split each season into 2 blu-ray boxes with just 2 discs each. So I had to buy 6 Blu-ray boxes to get all 3 seasons.
But since the show isn’t new anymore…it wasn’t very expensive (besides the very last box).
This one is another perfect example while I love such characters in (long) TV shows. You really get connected to these characters and every scene has much more intensity for me than it would have if the character would just appear in some minutes during a random video. The character has much more depth and I am much more interested in what will happen to him/her throughout the show.
Yeah, it costs a lot of time to watch all these episodes, but it was more than worth it in the end. And not only for the Nightwatchman scenes, I enjoyed the whole show quite a lot…especially seasons 1 and 2.
In total, I have not fewer than 7 scenes with the Nightwatchman, today I wanna present the first two.
Let’s start with the costume: At that time only very few sexy fabrics were invented/in use.
I think they make a LOT out of the available materials. I like her leather top that….if you get a good look…. clearly gives away that the Nightwatchman is a woman ;-), even she tries her best that no one notices that with her costume.
I LOVE that she really takes a great effort to hide her identity. Actually, her whole masquerade has 3 items! The hood hides her hair, the rather big eye mask is concealing her face alongside the scarf that covers the lower part of her face.
She has so much to lose if someone would figure out who she is, and she does everything she can to protect her secret identity. A+
If you have seen at least one of the 3652 (or so) Robin Hood movies…you know that Marian is his big love. And that makes his reaction to the unmasking so pleasing to me.
He thinks the Nightwatchman is some kind of murderer (“he” is not) and finds Marian under these masks…. I love such a constellation!
The unmasking is filmed quite….odd. He pulls back her hood …but then she quickly decides to unmask herself completely. Well, it makes sense as they know and love each other (most of the time). As she realizes that there is no escape for her, she rather unmasks herself than letting him do it.
I would have rather preferred her to defend her mask and to put up a fight in a scene before he pins her to the ground, but well she will have some thrilling fights with others ;-).
And this was only the beginning…soon the evil “Guy of Gisborne” will try everything to stop the Nightwatchman.
Guy is also in love with Marian….. and really HATES the Nightwatchman at the same time.
Again…I LOVE such constellations! 😉
Wanna know from which episode of which show this is?
Ok, I guess and hope that many of you already know the Black Scorpion TV show…. and since I didn’t cover the show with enough posts in the past…I wanna change that now.
The show is in my Hall of Fame and if you are into masked women, this TV show is an absolute MUST have!
A little extract from my post in the Hall of Fame (more info on the show can be found there):
I remember how I stumbled upon this show in the early 2000s.
This show was never shown here, but at some point, I read about the show and saw some pictures.
I immediately bought the DVD box set in the US and it took a while to get the Season box set to arrive here.
I also had to buy a DVD player that could handle region 1 DVDs. It was a pretty expensive endeavor, but damn, it was worth it BIG time!
I watched one episode every evening until I have seen all 22 episodes.
And that was a great thrill ride every night!
Ok, enough introduction….let’s start with one of the best episodes.
Here are the highlights of episode 1!
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
[Watch the video before you continue!]
It’s Steve’s first encounter with Black Scorpion! This starts his obsession with catching the Black Scorpion. He was transferred to this police department to catch her…. and I envy him big time! What a fantastic job! He gets paid to chase after such a stunning masked vigilante…oh man!
The ending of the episode with Firearm is so awesome! I love how he blackmails her to unmask herself….such a great move, and he really enjoys it 😉
One of the rare villains who actually wants to know who is under the mask of a heroine. And her reaction to it is well done and played as well!
Plus it’s a great bonus that he recognizes Darcy…and again, I love how he is enjoying the whole situation.
A good move that she quickly puts the mask back in place as soon she gets the chance.
In the end, Firearm has to die….after all, he had seen her face, so it was the most logical choice from the writers to get him killed.
It was the first episode if a villain like him would found out about her secret identity and would be able to tell everyone…it would be a short TV show.
Damn, I would give for a Blu-ray box for this TV show!!! Or a (not so cheesy) remake with better action scenes… #dream
Don’t know why I didn’t post about this one earlier, as I know this movie for some years now.
Today I wanna present a movie that I was waiting for quite some time. It took some time until it was finally released after some issues.
I could post a LOT of scenes from this one as the movie is about a woman becoming a masked vigilante….but that would be problematic.
I wanna show you one good scene as an appetizer….if you like to see masked women in action….you have to see the whole movie 😉
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
Pretty good action scene…especially if you are considering that this is a low-budget flick.
But it’s a low-budget flick from Asia …and very often they can achieve really good fights with little money.
I’m not a big fan of eye masks, but at least she has that hood that adds a little extra concealment, even it quickly get out of position during the action.
Her costume overall is pretty solid, the costumes from the henchwomen could have used a little more money or time. The chick with the golden wig, Batgirl logo top, and ballet skirt looks like a cheap Harley Quinn rip-off 😆 . But I like that they are masked as well.
I do like how the three fight against the heroine. They manage to deliver some good hits but the well-trained heroine keeps the upper hand.
Perhaps I will post more scenes from this when I’m really low on material to post.
Man recruits girl under the guise of making a movie, while really trying to turn her into a masked vigilante.
Black Lightning has only a few episodes left in its final season, but it still delivers good scenes with masked women!
And this one is so far the best of the season. We have a nice fight scene with a skilled assassin that fights Blackbird and Grace, who both have really good masks…in my opinion.
Earlier in the episode, the assassin tortured a guy so he would give up the secret identity of Blackbird, but he didn’t as he just didn’t know who she is.
She actually keeps her secret identity really well…..secret 🙂
But the assassin manages to find Blackbird and Grace….

And here is the scene:
Watch the video first before you continue!
As I said before I really like these masks! They cover their faces effectively but still show the eyes and parts of the upper face. These “half masks” are a good compromise between these tiny eye masks (example: Black Cat) and full-face masks (example: Spider-Gwen) for me.
The fight with him is pretty long and I was quite thrilled as I watched it as I always hoped he would manage to unmask one of them or both. Damn, how great it would be if at least his hand would have yanked on one of the masks in an attempt to yank them off.
But still, this is quite a highlight for me as you won’t find many scenes like that! Not one but two really well masked women in a long fight with a skilled attacker….rare stuff!
He is still out there to hunt down Blackbird…so I hope for more action scenes with him and other masked women in the next weeks. 😉
In the meantime I watched the remaining episodes of the season and…..well…..the BEST scene was shown in the last episode of the season!
As the title of this post suggests she gets UNMASKED, this time by an evil henchman!
Check out some preview pictures:
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
That’s how you do an unmasking! This short scene is my “unmasking highlight 2020” when it comes to TV shows and movies.
Ok, her leather mask does only cover on half of her face…but it covers more then most of the eye masks that heroines often are wearing.
And many things are done really good in this one:
She isn’t tied up, she can fight back. But he pushes her against the wall, using the oportunity immediately to to grab onto her mask. Finally a bad guy who actually wants to unmask the heroine….and he does it at the first chance he gets. For a moment she is stunned and he swiftly pulls hard on her mask. One of the two leather straps …..which holds her mask in place…. rips and he yanks the mask away from her, tossing it to the ground. Thereby he doesn’t only unmask her but even damaging her mask so she can’t put it on again. She later flees from the fight with others….still unmasked.
Yeah, the bog scar under the mask isn’t that attractive…but as I told in the post last week….she got it as bad guys punished her.
Also I like her reaction to it. She is furious as the mask comes off and all her anger is showing immediately.
Of course this scene is even more intense if you have watched the whole TV show before….
*EDIT* I forgot to mention this: Yeah, her mask doesn’t give her a secret identity, everyone knows who she is, it is like I said last week, a mask that hides the scar (like in Phantom of the Opera), but that doesn’t really change my liking about the unmasking.
I really love this scene as it shows something very rare.
I wish that season 2 of the Batwoman TV show would include a scene such as this one! Or an unmasking attempt during a fight….that would be awesome!
As a little bonus, here is the unmasking scene in the short version:
I recommend that you download it and play the file in endless repeat mode 😉
Ultraheroix (I presented Nightfox: Gravestone from them last year) and SHL has teamed up to form UHL and their first collaborative project is “Blue Aegis”!
And you shouldn’t miss this one 😉
King Skull is about to acquire dangerous information from a corrupt detective when Blue Aegis intervenes. King Skull, his henchmen, the detective and a hunter are all about to make sure Blue Aegis doesn’t get in the way again.
Check out these preview images for starters:

And here is the trailer:
(click on the arrows to enlarge to FULL size)
I enjoyed this video a LOT!
The actress does a good job as the heroine and I just love her costume!
The bodysuit, the boots and the sexy pantyhose are a stunning combo and she certainly looks rather…awesome in it! 🙂
Her mask is solid as it is a Huntress type rubber mask, and I like that it conceals a bit more than the mostly used eye masks in most fetish videos with masked heroines.
As you already can see in the trailer, the villain gets curious to have a look under her mask, and that is always a plus point! In many TV shows and movies the masks of the heroines gets mostly ignored like in the Black Scorpion TV show where she gets knocked out in nearly every episode, and the villain than mostly quickly flees without caring to unmask the heroine.
Also it’s always very enjoyable for me to have a sexy villainess in a video like in this case. Ok, her mask is nothing for my taste, but I know many of you like these eye masks!
With her claws and her sexy costume she is a great addition for this video! And black leather boots and pantyhose are always welcome as well 😉
Also the cat and mouse game between the villainess and the heroine in this one is done very well.
All in all this is a very enjoyable, high quality video and I’m looking forward to which videos this new collaboration will bring!
I watched this new french Netflix TV show and stumpled upon a masked female revolutionist. 🙂
And actually in one scene, she even wears two masks!
But let’s start with some pictures…
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
I guess you have realised that this is a german dubbed version.
I watch most of the TV shows in original english audio. But as I said this show is french, so I watched the german dubbed version as it wouldn’t make sense for me to watch the english dub of a french TV show 😉
However the really interesting parts of this video can be understand without any language.
For dramatic purposes I re-arranged the scenes as the scene in the prison is set AFTER the one in the cave in the TV show. This way you could see her with her two masks first and then have the “full” unmasking for the end.
Quite an extraordinary “mask setting”. One mask to disguise her as a plague doctor and one to cover up the scars caused by a villain who carved them into her face when she was younger.
Her half mask which basically covers only one half of her face reminds me on the phantom of the opera who was wearing a mask like that for similar resasons.
This is set some year before 1800 so there are only few material available for a mask. I really like her leather mask. Would be a great mask for a vigilante in the “full version”.
Wanna know from which TV show this is? Here you go:
Somehow I completely forgot to post about Ravager in season 2 of Titans.
Ok, her mask is more like a fashion item in the show and doesn’t really give her a secret identity, but a mask is a mask.
And this mask is solid and covers enough of her face 🙂
For this video I edited two scenes together. The first scene os from episode 12 of season 2 and the 2nd is from episode 13.
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
Some fine fight scenes and I like how she unmasks her father and then herself at the end.
There are some more scenes with her in mask, but nothing with action if I remember right.
Would be nice to see more from her in season 3 if she is still around then. Perhaps then she might have a secret identity and fights against people who don’t know who is under that mask.
Some INTERESTING news on season 3 of Titans:
On the DC Fandome they talked about the upcoming season 3 of Titans.
They confirmed that
A) season 3 will be set in GOTHAM! (Oh…. the possibilities for appearances of masked women!!!) 🙂
B) there will be also a commissioner Gordon! And not the one YOU think! It won’t be Jim Gordon….it will be BARBARA Gordon who leads the Gotham police!
That is already good news!
Of course it doesn’t mean that Barbara will dress up for her other job at night….but who knows? It wouldn’t surprise me if Barbara is frustrates as hell with the police in Gotham and pursues justice in a more “direct” way….at night 😉
At the DC Fandome on September 12 there will be a 30 minute panel, hopefully some more news already shows up there.
The panel on the last weekend had only 15 minutes.
Another masked heroine on this TV show is Dove and I posted about her best scene in season 1 a while back:
