Sophie (Kate’s Ex), yeah, I understand that they are trying to make her conflicted, but she’s coming across as being rather selfish and unreliable. By and large, I’m fully behind Mary (Kate’s step-sister) calling her out on her behavior, because she is really not thinking about the harm she is doing to others even if she thinks she is doing right.
That said, they seemed to have dropped the whole angle of Sophie’s relationship with her husband, even as they’ve labelled her as being Jacob’s second-in-command of the Crows.
The Alice thing … yeah, troubles with Mouse (Alice’s foster-brother) over her wanting to reunite with Kate, when Mouse wants Alice all to himself. Unfortunately, for me, a little bit of Alice goes a long way, and I really wished that she had been absent this episode.
Anyhow, we had a new villain, the Executioner, who is apparently a one-shot villain. His vendetta was way specific (three people, and no more), but I did like his motivation as well as the red herring, which Batwoman saw through because she was willing to investigate beyond the snap judgement, whereas Jacob (Kate’s father) really comes across as someone who once he makes a mistake, will double-down on the mistake rather than admit he was wrong and try to right it. Once he could admit it, then Kate could try to forgive him, but whether he’ll try to compensate for this tendency in the future, only the writers know.
Unfortunately, the Executioner and his revelations suddenly has Luke questioning his worldview, as perhaps the murderer of Lucius Fox is still out there because the Executioner’s victims were more interested in closing cases than solving them.
