Kate Kane ( Ruby Rose ) returns to Gotham City. Her cousin, Bruce Wayne, has not been seen in several years. Likewise the vigilante hero known as "Batman" has not been seen either. Kate blamed Batman for failing to save her mother and her sister, Beth.

Kate's ex-lover, Sophie Moore ( Meagan Tandy ), is now married to a man - her cow-orker Tyler (Greyston Holt - Bitten ). They both work for kate's father, Col. Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott - Mission Impossible 2 ), who runs a private security company called The Crows. Yes, rather than create a strong government that protects all citizens they have privatised safety so it is only available for the rich.

A supervillain named Alice ( Rachel Skarsten ), and her gang of mask-wearing thugs, has decided to terrorise Gotham. More specifically, they target Kate's father and his company.

Kate discovers a secret bat-cave under Bruce Wayne's skyscraper. Luckily she is a highlty trained Special Forces soldier, so she is able to wear the bat-suit and fight crime.

Shown 13 Oct 19

Kate Kane ( Ruby Rose ) has a knife with Alice's DNA, and wants to test it. She has a theory that Alice ( Rachel Skarsten ), a villain who specialises in mind-games, is really Kate's long lost sister Beth Kane.

A gang of thugs tries to steal the DNA sample. It seems that there is a third party involved.

Col. Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott - Mission Impossible 2 ) orders his agents to catch or kill Alice's gang. Yes, somehow the rent-a-cops have unlimited legal rights - literally a license to kill!

Kate's step-sister, med-student Mary Hamilton ( Nicole Kang ), also runs a secret clinic where she gives free treatment to poor people. To start with, this subsidises the corrupt healthcare system that she claims to oppose. Secondly, this makes her the first point of call for wounded criminals such as Alice's gang members.

Shown 20 Oct 19

Kate Kane ( Ruby Rose ) secretly meets with Alice ( Rachel Skarsten ). In spite of Alice's many murders of innocent civilians, Kate is willing to make a deal with her. Unfortunately for Chuck Dodgson (Brendon Zub - Charmed (2018) ), Alice is obsessed with mentally torturing her father.

Tommy Elliot (Gabriel Mann - Legend of the Seeker (2008) ), Bruce Wayne's old frenemey, drops by in search of Batman. Yes, just like Olly Queen he had a best buddy named Tommy. And since everyone thinks that Batman is back in town, Tommy assumes that Bruce is back in town too.

Someone steals a super-pistol from Wayne Enterprrises secret lab. This is the only weapon powerful enough to penetrate Batman's body armour.

Kate goes to Tommy's party, where she flirts with Reagan the barmaid ( Brianne Howey ). Everyone seems to hate Tommy, even Col. Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott - Mission Impossible 2 ) - despite the fact that Tommy is one of his biggest customers. Reagan is the only one who sees that as a real estate mogul, Tommy is basically deepening the city's socio-economic segregation.

Kate's ex-lover, Sophie Moore ( Meagan Tandy ), is assigned to bodyguard Mary Hamilton ( Nicole Kang ). They get trapped in an elevator with Sophie's cow-orker/husband Tyler (Greyston Holt - Bitten ). Will Sophie take the opportunity to be honest with him?

Chuck Dodgson (Brendon Zub - Charmed (2018) ) has been tortured by Batwoman for the last few weeks. Finally Luke Fox talks the torturer into taking her victim to a doctor. The only unlicensed doctor that Kate knows of is her step-sister, Mary Hamilton ( Nicole Kang ), who Dodgson tried to assassinate - but at least the doctor tries to be professional. Better, Mary can get info without actually torturing anyone.

Batwoman releases Chuck Dodgson (Brendon Zub - Charmed (2018) ) so she can follow him and trap Alice ( Rachel Skarsten ).

Col. Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott - Mission Impossible 2 ) goes after Kate, and runs into Dodgson. It turns out that the renegade's relationship with Alice isn't straightforward. Her real love is a platonic one for her foster-brother, Mouse. Dodgson's agenda is to defeat Kane, who he holds responsible for Gotham's segregation between extreme wealth and poverty. The truth is, Batwoman herself might actually agree with this.

Batwoman (2019) Batwoman (2019) [Season 1, Episode 6] I'll Be Judge, I'll Be Jury
Shown 10 Nov 19

A killer dressed like a medieval executioner is killing law enforcement people in ways similar to the official government methods of execution. His motive is that he believes his targets are guilty of corruption, and that they deliberately target poor black people. This is a bit of a whitewash - it implies that the problem is limited to a trio of bad characters rather than a deeply corrupt and unequal system.

We get some mentions of familiar characters. The District Attorney is named as the one who convicted Jack Napier, AKA the Joker. It turns out that Mayor Copplepot brought back the firing squad as a means of execution.

Col. Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott - Mission Impossible 2 ) denounces the Executioner as being a Social Justice Warrior. This marks Kane out as being a strawman. Luke Fox has more valid complaints, although he is allowed to because he is a young black man not an old white one.
