Jacob dealt with it. Alice dealt with it. Even Julia did, to a certain extent. And it was all wrapped around "Snakebite" and a doctor who could make people forget things.   While Kate is no longer a main player on the show, her impact is driving many stories of the characters. Jacob, Sophie, Alice, and Julia, are all doing what they are doing because of Kate. I wasn't

This one was fun, but they broke their own rules and stuff with this, leaving it with a sloppy and disconnected narrative.   The rule that was broken was the clothing thing.

Black Mask has Kate Kane imprisoned, and is becoming a formidable foe. The Bat team is beginning to gel more than ever too. Sofie's sister made a splashy entrance and seems like she will be important in the long run. Not only is she bridging the gap between Sofia and Ryan, but she is doing important work against police corruption too. The "is Kate alive or dead" thing is getting old. While th

The halfway point of the series also marked the apex of the series so far. The best episode came with a lot of added layers, familiar faces, and enough mystery to let the series ride this wave until the end of the line. There will be spoilers throughout.
