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!
I am on that site pretty often, it’s a really good source for recaps, picture galleries, trailers, casting news, and synopsizes of future episodes (which I link to in the Batwoman sites here on the blog)!
You can easily create an account there and then comment on their posts or visit the forum for discussions with other fans!
I was thinking about writing about the BIG casting news in my post from Monday that you will find below this one, but I wanted to give you a bigger chance to watch the episode before hearing the news 😉
And also, this deserves an extra post!
As the news got out last year that Ruby Rose was leaving the show….new names for her recast quickly popped up.
A name that was mentioned pretty often: Wallis Day.
Last year I made a post about the possible recast actresses and she was the first I mentioned in it.

I am very thrilled about this recast as I thought from day one that Kate Kane would be recast and return to the show at one point.
I expected her to re-appear near the end of season 2. Well, now she already is in the show in the middle of season 2.
But the question is: How long will it take her to escape that basement/sewer dungeon? How long will it take the others to realize that she is still alive?
So, I think it will take a while to see the new Kate be reunited with her loved ones after all. And they will certainly be much surprised to see how she had changed.
There are now so many questions that puzzle me. Why is she there? Who put her there and keeps her locked away? What kind of injuries did she suffer? Are these injuries from the plane crash? Is the one who is responsible for the plane crash the same one who keeps her locked away? etc.
I hope we will see Wallis Day in the next episode, even I do think she might have these bandages on for a while….after all, she seemed to have gotten some facial surgery as she now looks different.
I will watch now (at least) some episodes of Krypton as I never have seen Wallis Day in anything, except short video clips.
UPDATE, March 25:
We finally know who will play Black Mask just some days before the first episode with him airs!
Peter Outerbridge will play the masked evil mastermind!

I know him mostly from “Nikita” and “The Expanse”, but I have seen some other shows and movies with him as well.
Looking forward to see him in the role! Especially as he might be THE big villain for the rest of the season.
