Last week I posted these scenes in which a masked female revolutionist unmasks herself…twice as she is wearing two masks(!).
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:

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 😉
And here is the episode:
What do you think of that scene?
