Mystery is afoot on Batwoman this week that could have huge implications for things going forward.

Batwoman - Episode 2.03 - Batgirl Magic

This episode gave us a lot of Safiyah, and a new dynamic between Sophie and Alice. It also provided us with a classic Bat villain in the form of Victor Zsasz.

It was great to get out of Gotham for a bit and go to a mysterious island where it was revealed that Kate is indeed alive. That poses a lot of questions however. If she is, that means there is a chance Ruby Rose returns to the show one day. But that seems unlikely. So does that mean Kate Kane will be recast? Or is Safiyah lying about her being alive? If she is, then what is the endgame in introducing that story? It is unfair to Javicia Leslie's character to keep focusing on Kate Kane.

There are a lot of parallels with Kate missing and when Beth went missing. So that takes care of Jacob's storyline. He will not the mistakes that he did with Alice and that will drive her mad.

It is also fun to see how Ryan solves problems, because it is much different than how Kate Kane would. There's a little more brainpower behind how she operates than brute strength, though she uses that too. Its fun to see how she will solve problems every week. Even though she is a new character, her history is wrapped up in the lore already presented.

This episode gave a ton of intrigue and mystery to think about and use for the future. The season has a much different feel than last season but the DNA is still the same. I think we are in for some good stuff coming up.
