[Season 1 !Season 2 ]
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 wants to test Alice's DNA. It seems that there is a third party involved.
Tommy Elliot (Gabriel Mann - ), Bruce Wayne's old frenemey, drops by in search of Batman. Yes, just like Olly Queen he had a best buddy named Tommy.
Kate goes to Tommy's party, where she flirts with Reagan the barmaid ( Brianne Howey ).
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 Dodgeson 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.
Colonel Kane goes after Kate, and runs into Dodgeson. 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. Dodgeson'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.
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.
Colonel Kane denounces the Executioner as being a Social Justice Warrior. This marks Kane out as being a strawman. Luke Fox has more valid complains, although he is allowed to because he is a young black man not an old white one.
A freelance sniper is assassinating scientists in Gotham. A female ninja is hunting the sniper. She turns out to be Julia Pennyworth ( Christina Wolfe ), one of Kate's ex-lovers. Small world.
Kate's main ex-lover, Sophie Moore ( Meagan Tandy ), is still working with her husband Tyler (Greyston Holt - Bitten ). Workplace dating is not a good idea. It turns out that her husband no longer trust her.
Alice and Mouse conduct a revenge plan, taking over an award-giving ceremony hosted by Dr. Ethan Campbell (Sebastian Roché - Odyssey 5 ).
A hacker hijacks the morning commuter train into the city. Batwoman saves four hundred passengers, but gets photographed by them (instead of paparazzi). A brave young policeman helps in the rescue, despite having none of the billion-dollar advantages Batwoman has.
Batwoman complains that the general public seem obsessed with her private life. Later on she decides to divulge intimate details of her private life, in order to set herself up as a representative for lesbianism.
Beth wanders into Wayne Towers, and wonders why nobody recognises her. It turns out that she is from an alternate universe, thanks to the Crisis on Infinite Earths events.
Nocturna ( Kayla Ewell ) is a femme fatale who seduces people, then drains their blood. She would rather read a magazine than have sex with her victims, so she obviously has even more psychological problems than the average vampire.
Duela Dent ( Alessandra Torresani ) is the niece of Harvey, the famous District Attorney. She goes around carving up the faces of famous online influencers, giving them Joker smiles like that of Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight . It turns out she is a former patient of Dr. Ethan Campbell (Sebastian Roché - Odyssey 5 ), and is attacking his other patients.
Dr. Ethan Campbell (Sebastian Roché - Odyssey 5 ) and Alice both turn the tables on each other. She gets strapped down and filled with Fear Gas, which forces her to relive her worst memories. In her case it is the time she spent with Cartwright's mother, a bossy old woman who Alice refers to as the Queen of Hearts.
Tommy left Lucius Fox's secret journal with a money launderer, who is currently auctioning things to organised crime figures.
Kate goes into the nightclub, and discovers Reagan the barmaid ( Brianne Howey ) is now working there.
The underworld figures deal in millions of dollars. But the people who run Gotham, the corrupt billionaires who run businesses like Wayne Enterprises, spend that much in a weekend shopping spree. The wealth gap between the haves and have-nots is incredible.
Kate regrets her hook-up with Reagan the barmaid ( Brianne Howey ).
Alice and Mouse use Tommy as their gofer. With bandages instead of a face, and a pair of silenced automatics, he gets nicknamed Hush by the media. Mouse wants to double-cross Tommy ASAP, but Alice prefers to use Tommy for revenge on mutual enemies.
Alice and Mouse hide out in the sewers. Mouse wants to retire and live happily ever after, but Alice prefers to use Tommy for revenge on mutual enemies.
We discover that this reality's version of Bruce Wayne looks like Warren Christie ( Alphas ). Then it ends in a cliffhanger. Unfortunately Kate Kane ( Ruby Rose ) is being written out next Season, so her plot arcs will have to be tied up.
