From Sophie calling out Kate for being Batwoman to Mary sassing the hell out of people and proving that she’s the best thing since sliced bread, join us for our favorite moments from Batwoman‘s “I’ll Be Judge, I’ll Be Jury.”
1. When Sophie said Kate’s name.
Honestly, I didn’t think that Sophie would figure it all out so fast. Yes, I know she isn’t an idiot and she’s had her suspicions enough to ask Kate point blank if she was Batwoman. But secrets like this are usually kept hidden till the end of the season. It’s TV’s continued effort to keep us on the edge of our seats. But if Sophie knows, the edge of the seat moments are cut short and we are pushed into uncharted territory where we don’t know what comes next. Personally, I can’t wait!
2. When Mary sassed the hell out of Sophie.
Will there ever be an episode where Mary isn’t the MVP to end all MVP’s? Hopefully not because I love her to the moon and back and we all deserve more Mary Hamilton in our lives. This time around she was saving someone a little closer to home. Mary helped Sophie survive her wound and sassed her big time when she wasn’t appreciative of Mary’s work. Side-note: the fact that Mary doesn’t want to know who Batwoman is makes me respect her even more. Mary is here to help and not hide away secrets.
3. When Kate forgave her father.
Guilt was at the heart of the disconnect between Kate and her father. He felt guilty because he stopped searching for Beth. And Kate felt guilty for hating her father for stopping the search for Beth. I know, it’s some twisted up emotions that are grounded in love for each other and sadness over Beth. But this moment, this big ol’ hug, is the start of forgiveness for both of them. The past can’t be changed but what these two do from here on out when it comes to Beth matters.
4. When Alice lost it while playing checkers.
I was going to pick the scene where Alice and Mouse were sitting outside and talking about their plans, but this scene got me more than anything else when it came to these two. Rachel Skarsten is a masterclass in crazy and I love every moment that she is on my screen. For this scene in particular, she goes through a range of powerful emotions before saying “fuck it” internally and knocking over their checkers game.
Batwoman airs Sundays at 8/7c on The CW.
