"What Happened To Kate Kane?" Not only is that the big question heading into Season 2 of Batwoman, it also happens to be the episode title of the season's premiere episode. It appears that the search is on for Kate, all while a new hero emerges and Gotham's favorite son returns (but not really.)
Here is the official synopsis for the Season 2 premiere:
Kate's friends and family hold on to hope that Kate may still be found, a homeless 25-year-old named Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) stumbles upon Kate's Batsuit. Focused on no longer being a victim, Ryan takes the suit to use as armor and goes rogue in the streets of Gotham, taking out various members of a new gang called the False Face Society. Meanwhile, both Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson) launch searches for Kate, Mary Hamilton (Nicole Kang) grapples with losing yet another family member, Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy) struggles with things left unsaid to her first love, and Alice (Rachel Skarsten) is furious that someone got to Kate before she could exact her revenge. At the same time, "Bruce Wayne" (guest star Warren Christie) returns under the pretense of searching for Kate, but the truth is he wants his suit back and it becomes the clash of imposters as "Batwoman" and "Bruce" square off in the action-packed season premiere.
SPOILERS AHEAD FROM SEASON 1
We know that "Bruce" is in quotes because we saw last night that Tommy Elliot (AKA Hush), was given Bruce's face by Alice. What better way to infiltrate the inner circle of Team Batwoman and find out what is going on? Problem is, Alice's plans for revenge have clearly taken a different turn now and that will clearly be a point of emphasis right from the start. So it looks like the Season 2 premiere will waste no time in setting up multiple stories for both it's new and returning characters. There are a lot of angles here, each of them with a different perspective.
