So much drama wrapped around the bat-lady and CW’s inability to write.
Given how Rose and the CW series abruptly parted ways after the close of Season 1, Season 2 picked up with the rise of Ryan Wilder (played by God Friended Me‘s Javicia Leslie) as a brand-new Batwoman, in the wake of Kate Kane’s mysterious disappearance following a plane crash in Gotham. Following at least one fake-out (at the hands of a cruel Safiyah), Kate resurfaced in the March 21 episode, seemingly unconscious in the sewers of Gotham and unrecognizable beneath heavy bandages — save for her tell-tale red necklace.
“Wallis Day is going to be playing our altered version of Kate Kane, and she’s an amazing actress,” showrunner Caroline Dries told TVLine. “I’m excited for you guys to see the journey that she endures.”
