Batwoman - Episode 2.18 - Power
The finale came, and it delivered on all of its promises. Luke became something more, Ryan found her true place, and Kate got the closure she needed. It also teased some exciting things for the future.
The Beth/Kate stuff was well earned, and it was very reminiscent of the Cap/Bucky stuff from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, even down to being in the river.
Jacob Kane's story is done, and the actor will not return next year. Between that, and having two costumed heroes in Gotham, things are going to look different again for season 3. But this team can make it work, they did great work making the different lead work this season, so the changes for next season will be easy.
The show teased Poison Ivy at the end, and that would be amazing. She would be the biggest mainstream Batman villain in the show so far. Overall, the season was a strong one. Hopefully, next season can live up to its predecessors.
