Kate finally finds Tommy, who says that even though it took him half his liveliness, he ‘s last looking down on Bruce. Kate asks why he thinks Bruce is there, and Tommy says that they ‘re “ cosmic besties ”. Kate casually mentions that a thief stole the rail gun and there ‘s a hidden GPS hidden in the target, and Wayne Security will soon track down the thief.

Tommy draws a grease-gun and aims it at Kate, then takes out a telephone and shuts down the baron throughout the building. Tommy tells Kate to have Batman meet him on the roof or he drops the elevators. Kate says that Batman is n’t in Gotham, and Tommy releases an elevator with cater staff in it and says that in an hour, he ‘ll do it to people the city will actually miss if Batman does n’t meet him. Kate checks out the elevator crash site and finds the survivors. She tells one that he ‘s going to be okay as the EMTs arrive .
Kate then goes to the Batcave and says how this is all her fault, and asks Luke if he truly thinks Bruce is coming back. Luke admits that he does n’t think sol, and Kate says that possibly she ‘s better than Batman because at least she ‘s there. Luke fixes the befit by painting the cricket bat symbol red for Kate ‘s Batwoman courtship. Tommy is waiting on the roof as Batwoman moves through the shadows. She finally steps out and when Tommy realizes that she ‘s not Batman, she tells him that ‘s the whole detail. Tommy demands Batman, and calls her Batman ‘s side musical composition. Luke tells her to activate the neutralizer in her glove. She does but it does n’t work, and Luke activates it remotely, but tells to stall for 30 seconds while it charges. Batwoman attacks Tommy and the two of them crusade. He grabs the gunman just as the neutralizer charges, and Batwoman shuts down the rail grease-gun. however, Tommy grabs his distant and sets off a charge. The elevator containing Catherine and Jacob shakes as the cable holding it up breaks. Batwoman drops down, standing on another elevator, and uses the bipartisan cope gunman to catch it. Tommy sets off the charge on the elevator Batwoman is on. She uses a grappling pilfer to pull herself up. She is holding for her life, and Tommy steps on her hands. He tells her to let go, but is knocked out by Alice from behind. Kate pulls herself up and points out that Alice precisely saved her life. Alice says that they ‘re even now, but proceeds to stroke Kate ‘s impudence, and notes that the red wig must be court to the color of their birthstone. Kate says it ‘s besides to remind them where they came from. After a moment, Alice tells Kate that she could n’t wait 24 hours and figures Dodgson will die nowadays because she could n’t stop herself from killing. Kate wonders why she saved her, and Alice says that it ‘s because she has plans for her. When Kate grabs her and says that if she kills again she ‘ll stop think of Alice as her sister, Alice says that ‘s what she wants. Kate does n’t believe it, and Alice pulls Kate ‘s pass away and leaves .
As the police take Tommy off, Kate arrives and Tommy tells her to tell Bruce that he wo n’t stop until Bruce shows his confront. Kate reveals that they are taking him to Arkham Asylum, and taunts him by wishing him good luck buying his way out of that punishment. Reagan then is seen coming out and Kate asks her if she ‘s approve. She reveals that she came over to ask her if she ‘s into her and promises to call Kate when the former says yes. In another letter to Bruce, Kate admits that she was afraid of letting him down, and figures that whatever happens is worth it. She late stands on top of Wayne Enterprises in her new suit, where a helicopter spots her. [ 15 ] At some point after becoming known as “ Batwoman ”, Kate lies in layer with Reagan, and turns off the radio receiver. Reagan says that she kind of likes Batwoman and believes that Gotham could use a charwoman ‘s partake. The two share a passionate kiss before Kate ‘s call rings, and she checks it to learn that Luke texted her saying that it ‘s pressing. She tells Reagan that Luke is a colleague and she has to go because there ‘s a problem with the bathymetry and lies that a water main broke at Wayne Tower. Reagan notes how Kate comes by her place belated at nox, and leaves before breakfast. As a result, she does n’t see much of her, except in small increments of time. therefore Kate tells her that she ‘ll make it up to her before leaving. Kate goes to Bruce ‘s office and meets with the museum curator, Roxanna. Roxanna thanks Kate for letting her have Martha Wayne ‘s necklace up for display, and tells the photographer Margot to get a few more shots of it. Luke asks where Kate was, and Kate tells him that she ‘s been seeing person. He explains that Magpie struck again and about killed a security guard, and Batwoman was nowhere to be seen. Luke and Kate go to the Batcave and Luke wonders what they ‘re going to do with the imprison Dodgson. She says that he ‘s not going anywhere until Dodgson tells her more about Alice ‘s plan. however, his fever continues to spike, and he Dodgson ‘s affection seizes up and Kate agrees that he needs an erbium .
Donning her Batwoman suit, Kate goes to Mary ‘s clinic. Using a voice modulator, Batwoman tells Mary that she needs her help and shows her Dodgson manacle to a bed. Mary notes that Dodgson tried to kill her, but checks his infect branch. She says that she might be able to save him, and Batwoman promises to come back for Dodgson late. Mary facetiously asks her if she does n’t have neosporin in her utility program belt. She besides goes onto chastise Batwoman because she actually subscribes to a code of do no damage unlike the vigilante. Batwoman deduces that she needs to establish the citizens ‘ religion in Batman by capturing Magpie. Luke calls her and suggests that they use eagle cams to find her. Magpie breaks into another gallery to steal jewelry, and Batwoman cuts through her line. The two women fight and Batwoman grabs some trinkets off of Magpie ‘s belt, as Magpie jumps out a window. Batwoman tries to stop her and misses when her hold Batarang returns and alternatively smashes a precious gild vase that once belonged to Marie Antoinette .
The following day, Kate meets with Luke and suggests that the Batarang is broken. He says that the trinkets were grenades and figures he can trace the contents to locate Magpie. Kate leaves to have lunch with Reagan. Kate and Reagan decide to go for a walk before lunch, and Reagan correctly deduces that Kate came back to Gotham because of an x. She then points out that she used to live in an apartment that is now separate of the Crows District, but she along with the previous tenants were and all forced out. So the real estate of the realm moguls got fat evicting people ; not caring who they hurt in the process. Kate realizes that Reagan was evicted from her childhood base, and Reagan admits to having googled Kate. Just as Reagan is taking Kate to her mother ‘s restaurant, Kate gets another text and says that she has to deal with an electrical fuel in her cousin ‘s build up. She invites Reagan to the fundraiser at the museum and she agrees .
Kate returns to the office and finds Luke knocked out. She realizes that Magpie took Martha ‘s necklace, and feels guilty at not being there to protect Luke and the remainder of the stead. Kate and Luke spill the beans about how Bruce ‘s ma was killed for that necklace. then Luke talks about how Bruce Wayne spent years looking for it in the streets. He finally found it in an auction, and spent $ 1 million bribe it back. Luke then says that Magpie 3D-printed the bombs using explosive ink, and suggests that Kate ask Sophie since it ‘d be easier for the Crows to locate it since they track baron dispatch. At the Crows HQ, Sophie wonders why Kate is on the case if Batwoman is angstrom well, and Kate says that she does n’t trust vigilantes. After Sophie comes up with a list of explosive ink buyers, she tells Kate that she ‘s glad she came to her and that they ‘ve always made a good team. At the Batcave, Luke goes through the number of ink purchasers. Kate notes that Sophie thinks that she ‘s Batwoman, and wonders how Bruce made living a double-life so easily. Luke tells her that Bruce ‘s life sucked ; the playboy thing was a good covering for him because he could tell the same lies over and over. finally, Luke ‘s search comes up with a PO Box for one of the buyers at the previous Gotham Hotel. Batwoman goes there and finds Magpie ‘s jewelry, calculator, and 3D printer. She notes that the temperature in the room is rather cold when precisely looking at the windowpane, she ‘s able to see her hint. Luke figures out that if Batwoman ‘s body temperature raises the room ‘s temperature, it will set off a turkey. Through Luke, Kate finds out that her courtship can lower Kate ‘s body temperature to match the board and bypass the sensors in Magpie ‘s lair. however, Luke warns her that she ca n’t breathe differently the fail in Magpie ‘s “ nest ” will go off. He asks her how long she can hold her breath. She says it gets chancy after two minutes. While she works, Luke says that the Batarang was calibrated for Bruce, not Kate, because he had longer arms. But that it has since been recalibrated to match her. He then asks Batwoman to clone the calculator ‘s hard drive, and Batwoman does so and finds Magpie ‘s hoard of jewelry, including the necklace. however, she besides discovers feathers and sneezes due to her allergy and then hoists herself out of the board on a grapple agate line as a turkey goes off. Batwoman late stands watch over the museum, figuring that Magpie will strike there. Luke has found schematics on Magpie ‘s calculator and is printing it since he ca n’t decrypt them. She sees Reagan arrive and tells Luke that she has to go. Kate sees Reagan at the bar and avoids her, but first goes and hides her bag with her courtship in a supply cupboard. Before she can approach her, Sophie comes over and says that she ‘s working security in case Magpie shows. Reagan comes over and makes it clear that she ‘s with Kate, and Sophie tells them to have fun after a tense and awkward moment between the three women. Roxanna comes over and Kate apologizes that the necklace was stolen. Roxanna informs her that a security guard showed up with steal necklace. She calls everyone ‘s attention and presents the necklace. Kate excuses herself from Reagan and calls Luke, who says that the “ necklace ” is a bomb calorimeter that Magpie printed. As she goes to get her suit, Kate figures that the bomb will serve as a distraction while Magpie robs the museum. certain enough, Magpie arrives on the scene. She is stealing jewelry when Batwoman throws a Batarang at her and misses. The thief asks if Batwoman will capture her or save the guests, and triggers a distant to set off the fail necklace. Batwoman goes there and absorbs the blasts with her cape, and sees Magpie fleeing with the jewels. One of the pearl from the necklace lands following to a little girl, and Batwoman throws a Batarang to knock the pearl out of the girlfriend ‘s pass and then shields her with her cape. Due to the new calibration, Batwoman is able to catch the Batarang. Magpie takes a wrestling line across the street, and Batwoman snags her channel and brings Magpie down into a nearby water fountain .
As the Crows secure the view and take away Magpie, Kate realizes who she is ; Margot, the photographer taking pictures of the necklace. Kate returns and tells Reagan that she was on a call. Reagan claims that she tried reaching out to Kate via her phone, and Kate responds that she must have been in a dead partition. Due to the contradiction between being on a call and being in a dead zone, Reagan figures that Kate is lying to her and says that she needs honesty in her relationships. Kate tells her that she ‘s not in a plaza right now where she can share all of herself with person else. She apologizes, and Reagan figures that she has a lot going on. She hopes that it makes Kate happy and walks away. Batwoman returns to the clinic and Mary says that Dodgson is static. Mary relates what Dodgson said earlier about person named Mouse, and Batwoman injects Dodgson with a subdermal sender. She tells mary that Dodgson will lead her to Alice and Alice will lead her to Mouse, thanks Mary for her aid, and leaves. [ 11 ]

Taking charge of Wayne Enterprises

Luke tells Kate that the city trusts her now. Kate says that she wants to start a substantial estate of the realm development firm auxiliary for Wayne Enterprises. [ 11 ] [ 16 ] She plans to buy creaky buildings and give them to the summation, because veracious now, the city does n’t trust Kate like they trust Batwoman. Batwoman watches over the city, and figures that if she ‘s going to embrace the Bat then she ‘ll have to embrace hiding contribution of herself. meanwhile, Luke turns on the new and improved Bat-signal. [ 11 ]


Meeting other heroes

At some point after reality was altered, Batwoman stood on the circus tent of Wayne Enterprises. [ 17 ] After Oliver Queen, Barry Allen, and Kara Danvers were arrested, Kate posted their bail and had a guard escort them to Wayne Enterprises. Once they got there, she reluctantly offered to help indeed they could leave, as she did n’t want “ Oliver ” to cause any more problems. She took them to the rooftop and gave them equipment to use to find whom they were seeking while she watched them on a security camera. After a while, Kara came inside. Kara apologized for asking a batch of questions, realizing the name Bruce Wayne was reasonably ill-famed. Kate said she knew, as Bruce is her cousin. Kara mentioned that her cousin was frenemies with Bruce, then wondered if keeping his private life a secret break him. Kate responded by saying that watching the city capitulation to pieces made Bruce heavily to break and that Bruce was possibly forced to leave. Kara complimented her and then asked about John Deegan. Kate told her that he worked at Arkham Asylum. After Kara left, Kate took an elevator down to a cave, where her suit was located. [ 16 ]

Arkham break
Who the hell are you?
—Caitlin Snow upon seeing Batwoman[src]

When Barry and Cisco were attacked by Arkham inmates she appeared as Batwoman and took down the remaining inmates including Psycho Pirate. She told them that Kate told them to leave and that they should have listened to her and walked away .
late when the Flash and the green Arrow were fighting each other, she neutralized them and made them realize that they were exposed to a hallucinogenic gas. At the refuge gate, she told them to get out of her city and had a old world chat with Supergirl who knew her identity because of her x-ray vision. She recognized Kara Danvers from earlier. They shook hands and then walked away. [ 16 ] After reality was restored back to convention, she contacted Oliver Queen asking if the deranged doctor they brought into Arkham was going to be a bigger trouble since he already made a friend at the mental hospital : the Psycho Pirate. [ 18 ]

Learning of Alice ‘s past

Two weeks after the Arkham break, Kate writes another letter to Bruce, talking about how, despite spending nine months in her mother ‘s uterus aboard Beth, and then every other day for 13 years, she finds that Beth how she is now is a complete mystery to her. She admits that she does n’t know the pillow of her narrative, but vows to solve this mystery before it ‘s besides recently. back at Wayne Tower, Luke tells Kate about “ The Skin Pirate ”, who is being reported as a citizen of Gotham that has hit three morgues in one night so far, and taken bark from the corpses. The newspapers are assuming it ‘s a male, but upon checking surveillance cameras that Wayne Tech has, they find out that the aforesaid thief is in fact Alice. Kate decides that whatever Alice has planned for Gotham ends upon seeing the television footage. even though at first, she thought that Alice would n’t be behind it because it ‘s excessively vomit, even for her. She figures that she can track Alice through Dodgson, who she put a tracker in. Kate dons her Batwoman suit and ambushes Alice and the perch of her Wonderland Gang. Alice yells to Batwoman that she ‘s not afraid of the colored or of her before she is subsequently knocked out with a bo-staff Kate had on her. While she ‘s unconscious mind, Kate ties up Alice. She finally wakes up and Kate asks her what the skin was for, and asks if the “ Mouse ” that Dodgson mentioned is real or a figment of Alice ‘s resource. Alice defends herself by saying she did n’t hurt anyone since they were already dead. Alice then refers to Mary as an attention-starved step-sister who illegally drugged Dodgson .
Kate however, proceed to tell Alice that if she keeps going down this road, it will end badly but she can get her into a reclamation hospital. A good one. But Alice refuses to say what happened to her after the clang, and Kate calls Jacob so that he can find Alice and take her to Arkham. Kate says that Alice is contained and she thought he should know. Well aware that Jacob will track the call, Kate tells Alice to start talking. Alice says that if Kate releases her then she ‘ll tell her floor. While on the road with Kate, she tells her sister about how her long and sad fib begins 14 months before Catherine Hamilton-Kane fakes her death, which confuses Kate. Alice deduces that no one told Kate about it, and proceeds to tell her how their stepmother faked her deoxyribonucleic acid results, but besides how their founder just found out they had a funeral for a deer. finally, Alice gets frustrated with Kate because she feels as though her sister is n’t asking the correctly questions. She proceeds to tell her that she truly does n’t want to know why she is the way she is immediately, when the latter asks her why. however, when Kate tells her that she has waited 15 years to hear it, Alice relents. Alice tells Kate about the first gear regretful day of her life – it all happened when she woke up in a strange ‘s house after the crash .
A serviceman, and his son, Johnny, were there, and the man offered to make her a sandwich. Kate asks Alice if she remembers the man ‘s name, but Alice tells her how she never knew it, and that it does n’t very matter. She temporarily changes the topic, suggesting they should stop at a nearby dining car that is up the road. In the diner, Alice tells Kate that the reason they are there is because she used to dream of running away from her captor to a place like this. But then her own hunger would wake her. So she admits that ala, it was not meant to be. Alice continues with her fib, saying how Johnny had the ability to mimic any voice he heard, and explains that Johnny ‘s father never actually called the patrol, but rather put Beth inside a room in the basement and locked it, where she found a confront in the slump. Kate references Hannibal Lecter, when she asks Alice why there was a face in a slump, and if the nameless world who she calls hannibal Lecter wanted to kill her or skin her. Alice says that she was n’t a prisoner, but a supporter. however, she does admit to learning that ally takes on a different mean depending on who you ask. The father was using the skin for experiments to hide Johnny ‘s hideous face according to Alice. She goes onto say how Johnny ‘s forefather thought that the ridicule would end for Mouse once he looked convention. It ‘s then revealed that Alice, with Mouse ‘s avail, drug Kate. so now it ‘s Kate who is the one who kidnapped. Kate wakes up chained to a wall. Alice is watching her, and admits that she found the tracker on Dodgson and had a friend drug Kate ‘s beverage back at the diner. She figures the design she and Mouse have for Gotham will go better with Kate out of the equality. Alice continues with the rest of her story and tells her sister how after weeks and weeks in captivity, like a little rabbit down a hole so small, she last managed to claw her way out. She remarks how it ‘s curious, for there are then many off the beaten track things that when one becomes desperate, show themselves. She goes onto say she found one such opportunity, in a complete. Alice laments her hapless, delicate fingers, but says quite proudly that she finally did take the opportunity. Alice tells Kate how she managed to escape the basement and call their don, although Johnny ‘s father found her and hung up the earphone. Kate remembers the call and how she and Jacob traveled to the theater in search of Beth, but did n’t find her. Alice says that she waited for Kate to sense that she was there, but Kate sensed nothing. With that, Alice turns and leaves, closing the door behind her. like to Beth years prior, Kate uses a pinpoint to pick the lock in on her handcuffs. She finally escapes and meets up with Sophie, who is running from an pornographic Mouse. The two of them finally subdue him and bring him to Alice, who had stabbed Jacob .
Kate holds a accelerator to Mouse ‘s head, and tells Alice to decide which is more authoritative to her : kill Jacob or keeping Mouse alert. Alice figures that Kate is bluffing, but Sophie comes in and aims her gunman at Alice. Irritated, Alice says that killing Jacob would be besides easy and if they all walk out, no one has to die. Kate releases Mouse and goes to Jacob, and Alice leaves with Mouse. Jacob tells Kate that Alice is Beth. Kate blames herself for what happened to Alice. Jacob joins her, and Kate wonders if anyone can save Alice. [ 6 ]

Facing the executioner

sometime later in the Crows headquarters, Jacob tells Kate about Cartwright and how all those years Beth was being held prisoner by a lunatic with a medical license. He besides reveals that the deed to the house was under person named Dr. August Cartwright, who vanished without a trace. Kate is n’t impressed by his apologies, and Sophie comes in and says he ‘ll want to see a news program report. A reporter on Channel 8 ‘s Gotham City News is talking about Stanton death, and there ‘s footage of the Executioner. The reporter besides mentions how Stanton was seen by many as a hero to Gotham, one who brought justice to the victims of some of the city ‘s most ill-famed criminals. Amongst them being Jack Napier AKA the Joker .
While watching the newsworthiness, Kate notices that Stanton ‘s killer is seen wearing in security footage that Crows Security the Crows got was wearing what looks to be an old fashioned executioner ‘s hood, and an ax. The GCPD has already put up the signal for Batwoman, and Jacob says that she ‘s a symbol of false promise that hides behind a disguise. Kate leaves and heads to the Batcave, where Luke is glad at the mind that the City has called for Batwoman ‘s aid for the first time, whereas Kate feels like a bunch of pressure is on her to not mess this up. Luke besides goes onto say that this is good news for her since Commissioner Forbes must trust her since it seems like the Gotham City Police Department has her on rush dial. Luke besides confesses to Kate that Stanton was the one who put away the guy that killed his dad in armed robbery the night of his high school graduation. They were celebrating the fact that Luke got into MIT but they ran out of internal-combustion engine. His dad went out, and the adjacent thing he knows two cops are asking him to ID the body. They were waiting on him to cut the cake. Luke goes onto find a charge on Medlock and confirms that he got 30 years at Blackgate Penitentiary rather than execution. He finds footage of Medlock, aka The Fist, vowing in court to kill Stanton. Due to overcrowding, Medlock was paroled a few weeks earlier. A newscast come in is hear saying that Medlock has barricaded himself in a build with hostages. Donning her Batwoman befit, she heads to the build up, where she meets up with Sophie, who comments on her new suit. They hear a woman shout and run up, and detect that the screech is coming from loudspeakers. Donnelly comes in and sets off automated guns, killing him as Batwoman tackles Sophie to the floor. Sophie is hit, and calls Batwoman “ Kate ” before passing out. Batwoman takes Sophie to the clinic and Mary tends to her. When asked why she did n’t take her to the hospital, since Sophie can afford it, she explains that the clinic was closer than a hospital and that Mary ca n’t let Sophie leave. Kate returns to the Batcave and tells Luke that Sophie knows who she is. She says that she ‘ll convince Sophie not to talk after she catches the Executioner. Kate figures that the Executioner is using methods of das kapital punishment to kill his victims, and Luke determines the third base method Gotham has used to kill criminals is a gasoline bedroom. There ‘s only one warehouse in Gotham that stores the hydrogen nitrile gas. At the warehouse, Batwoman approaches a precaution and says that she needs information. He tells her that no one has gone past him, and Batwoman fades back into the shadows as the guard duty offers to buy her a toast. Batwoman calls Luke, who says that they ‘ve got a report of Medlock elsewhere. Batwoman prepares to go check on Sophie, but a truck on the spur of the moment slams through the warehouse doorway, knocking Batwoman down, and the Executioner gets out and hacks open the chemical storage batting cage. He takes a canister of the hydrogen cyanide flatulence and gets into his truck, and drives off as Batwoman wakes up and tells Luke that the Crows have the wrong guy. back at the Batcave, Luke tells Kate that the truck ‘s license plates had mud on them, making it impossible to identify. But he remembers that the lawsuit ‘s carbon fiber tease is designed to absorb any impact, so any contortion in the fibers is recorded in the befit ‘s data. This was primitively designed to track damage caused by bullets and blunt-force trauma. As a solution, he gets a overtone ID on the license plate from when it hit Batwoman. The truck as it turns out belongs to a homo named Bertrand Eldon, who worked at Blackgate for 20 years as their executioner. Batwoman breaks into Bertrand ‘s home and finds no one there. She finds Bertrand ‘s overhaul awards, and locates the hydrogen nitrile capsules on the coffee board. There ‘s no augury of a ambush, and Luke warns her not to grab it. She does anyhow and nothing happens, and she confirms that there ‘s nothing inside but a dart drive .
Kate brings the drive to the Batcave, where Luke plays the video attached to it. Eldon admits to being guilty of killing innocent people, alternatively calling out three corrupt individuals for being the true criminals, as Eldon never killed a rich, ashen, man despite killing respective poor black people. Luke says that he knows racial profile is a thing in Gotham, but besides that Stanton spent countless hours with his class trying to find justice for Lucius. He warns that his father ‘s killer could use the data to get a new trial, and Kate asks if it ‘s silent justice when there ‘s a hypothesis that impeccant people are behind bars. Kate finds Medlock and grapples him to a rooftop before he could be handed over to GCPD. She besides throws a batarang onto a van with Eldon ‘s confession attached to it. In Crows Security, Kate finds her beget watching the confession. Jacob says that he does n’t believe that Judge Calverick is a fraud. He points out that Batman destroyed their lives. Kate tells Jacob that Beth became Alice because they stopped looking for her, and angrily says that Jacob gave up and blamed Batman because it was easier. She goes onto say that now an innocent man is going to pay the price for Jacob not listening then or now. Batwoman heads to Calverick ‘s function, where he is burning papers. She figures that the evaluate is burning the fudge confessions, and says that he ‘ll get free protection at Blackgate. Calverick runs out into his court and the Executioner attacks him. Batwoman grabs the Executioner ‘s ax and tells Calverick to run. once he does, the Executioner says that he nobelium longer trusts the law. Batwoman tells Luke over the radio to get backup to get Calverick into protective detention. Batwoman and the Executioner fight, and he finally gets the upper hand. Jacob and one of his men arrive and Jacob shoots the Executioner. He sends the early to sweep the build, and Jacob tells Batwoman that he does n’t see a deviation between her and the Executioner .
Jacob insists that he ‘s accountable for Gotham and asks Batwoman who she ‘s accountable to. Batwoman disarms him and they fight, and a timing device goes off on the Executioner ‘s belt out. Jacob realizes it ‘s a dead man ‘s interchange linked to the Executioner ‘s pulse. Gas pours into the room and the door seals. Luke confirms that the oxygen levels are dropping, and Jacob warns that the Executioner triggered the lockdown procedure. Batwoman asks Luke for ideas, and he says the hydrogen cyanide is flammable. however, Batwoman has to let the gas fill the room once to get broad saturation. Batwoman tells Jacob to stay low to the ground, and he insists that he wo n’t see the Bat symbol as the last thing before he dies. He says that the symbol let his kin die, and Batwoman tells him to let his hatred fuel him into staying active. Jacob explains that he has to blame the symbol because otherwise he ‘ll have to blame himself. Batwoman ignites the gas when it reaches saturation floor, and the cyanide burns off .
Batwoman visits Mary and asks where Sophie is. Mary tells her that Sophie ‘s boss is Mary ‘s stepdad, and she ‘s not going to let him shut her gloomy. Batwoman thanks Mary for saving her life, and Mary tells her that Sophie knows who she is and is probably going to tell Jacob. Mary besides reveals that she did n’t ask Sophie who Batwoman was, putting Kate at ease. former in Jacob ‘s office, Kate looks over the information Jacob has on Alice. She realizes that she ‘s been blaming Jacob for not saving Beth, but it was her a well who shared the blame for Beths circumstances adenine well since she was The Who crossed off the farm where Beth was all along, along with not being able to tell that Beth was behind the door of the farm. Jacob comes in and says that they ‘re going to get Beth back and he wo n’t ever give up. They both break into tears and Kate hugs him, knowing that she ‘ll never be able to forgive herself if she does n’t forgive her dad first. Sophie comes in behind Jacob, exchanges looks with Kate, and leaves. [ 13 ]

conflict with Sophie

Kate struggles with Sophie who threatens to tell her father, Jacob that she is Batwoman. interim, Kate was chasing a criminal known as the “ Rifle “, but she lost sight of him after meeting Julia Pennyworth. That night, Kate had Sophie meet her at Alessandro ‘s for dinner to reveal her alter-ego. They were interrupted by Alessandro, who asked the match to leave due to their apparent show of affection upsetting him. He initially tried to use the full-dress code as an apology, but Kate caught on to his lie and stood up for her rights, forcing Alessandro to admit his homophobia. When Kate subtly made a setting by threatening to have her half sister, Mary Hamilton, use her influence to shut down the restaurant, Alessandro agreed to let them stay .

Luke revealed that a butterfly knife the police recovered from one of the mangle engineers of Hamilton Dynamics likely matched Alice ‘s knife. Kate realized that Alice hired the Rifle to kill anyone who was connected to the coil accelerator and ( incorrectly ) Kate herself. Julia informed them that the SRR had tracked the Rifle to the Mediterranean, where she would be following him. Julia then said her goodbyes to Kate and Luke before leaving, besides advising Kate to not make the same mistakes as Bruce and allow people to get near to her .
The adjacent day, Kate invited Mary to an abandoned build she had bought with her firm, wanting her step-sister ‘s help with her first real estate enterprise.

Kate as Batwoman ambushes a extremity of the Wonderland gang and asks him to give her his jacket. He initially refuses because it is “ vintage ”, but ends up giving in. Kate returns to the Batcave and gives Luke the jacket and tells him to use the call in his scoop to track Alice via GPS. Luke tracks the earphone ‘s GPS to Bowery, and Kate heads there. Kate finds Alice and accuses her of having hired the Rifle to kill her using Coil ‘s accelerator. Alice reveals that she made sure that no one killed Kate and gives her sister the piece of technology that allows the accelerator to penetrate the Bat-suit.

That night, Kate visits Jacob ( who is actually Mouse ) and asks if he is going back with Catherine. Jacob insists that he can not barely walk aside from the marry and Kate leaves, disgusted by who she thinks is her don .
At Wayne Tower, Kate is drinking and asks Luke how her father could choose to be with Catherine after all the pain she has caused them. Luke points out that Alice did much more damage than Catherine, but Kate insists that her baby ‘s actions were due to her being “ brainwashed ”. Kate ultimately finds out that the Jacob she met is not in truth him. As a test, she calls “ Jacob ” and tells him it ‘s none of her business if he wants to go spinal column with Catherine. Kate mentions a blizzard at her marry, and “ Jacob ” agrees. vitamin a soon as Kate hangs up, she reveals to Luke that Jacob and Catherine were married on the hottest day of the year, and deduces that the “ Jacob ” she fair spoke to is actually Mouse.

She really is like Batman.
—Kara Danvers[src]
  • Peak of human physical condition: As a vigilante, former soccer athlete[13] and a former top cadet of Point Rock Academy (alongside Sophie Moore) Kate is in top physical condition; she is strong enough to throw her enemies into the air and quickly master opponents much larger than her with relative ease. Due to five years of brutal combat and survival training under various conditions; Kate is remarkably resilient to cold temperatures, having no qualms in free diving with no protection in icy waters. Her physical strength seems to be even a bit inhuman, as Kate has little to no difficulty at all in lifting and throwing around full-grown men. She was strong enough to punch through ice from underwater using handcuffs, kick open the boarded-up doors to Bruce Wayne’s office,[1] break a metal staff over her knee and kick down Reagan’s double-locked door.[31] She is fast enough to exit a room unnoticed, not dissimilar to her cousin. Kate also has a high level of stamina as by her own admission, she can hold her breath for two minutes, but it gets “dicey” after two minutes pass.[11] Her reflexes allowed her to catch Beth Kane’s knife before it could hit the latter’s doppelgänger,[27] as well as dodge her own grappling gun’s hook. Kate’s father, Jacob Kane offered her the opportunity to join the Crows, putting her on par with former Navy SEALs and Green Berets.

She also noticed a pattern in the Executioner’s methods of killing.
    • Expert of deception: Kate is very good at keeping her own identity as Batwoman a secret; the highly intelligent Barry Allen, Kara Danvers and Oliver Queen respectively were unable to deduce that she is Batwoman; Kara had to resort to using her x-ray vision to discover that Kate is Batwoman.

I’d spent years traveling the world, training with combat and survivalist specialists so I could join the Crows.

Behind the scenes

  • In the main DC comics continuity, Kate Kane is a superheroine known as Batwoman, affiliated with the Bat-Family. The character originated as Kathy Kane in 1956 and was a recurring love interest of Batman’s until she was retired from the comics in the mid-1960s; she later returned in the 1970s but was killed off. In 2006, a new version of the character, now named Kate Kane and reimagined as being openly gay, was introduced in the post-Infinite Crisis continuity. The original version of Kane, however, was also reintroduced in 2011’s Batman Incorporated series.
    • The Arrowverse version of Batwoman is based upon the 2006 re-imagining of the character.
    • In the DC comics, Batwoman had a relationship with Maggie Sawyer. The characters became engaged, but DC comics vetoed their wedding, causing the then writers to leave in protest.[47]
    • Unlike Kate’s DC comic book counterpart, who’s natural hair colour is red, Kate’s red hair is only part of her suit.
    • In the DC comics before the New 52, Kate had no familial ties to Bruce Wayne.
    • Kate’s friendship with Kara Danvers/Supergirl mirrors that of Barry Allen/The Flash and Oliver Queen/Green Arrow’s, and also parallels the relationship of their respective cousins, Bruce Wayne/Batman and Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman in the DC comics.
    • Tommy Elliot refers to Kate as “Candy”, much to her annoyance.[15] In the DC comics, this was her cadet nickname while at West Point.
