In just a few weeks, Javicia Leslie will officially make her Arrowverse debut as Ryan Wilder and succeed Ruby Rose as The CW’s new Batwoman. But before she can have her own adventures, Ryan will have to tie up some loose ends from last season. Namely, she’ll come face to face with Tommy Elliot/Hush, who is back in Gotham City and wearing Bruce Wayne’s face.
The CW (via TVLine) has released the official synopsis for Batwoman’s season 2 premiere, titled “What Happened to Kate Kane?” The episode will begin to address how the producers are handling Rose’s character following her sudden departure from the series earlier this year. Read the description for yourself below.
“As friends and family hold on to hope that Kate may still be found, a homeless 25-year-old named Ryan Wilder 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 and Luke Fox launch searches for Kate, Mary Hamilton grapples with losing yet another family member, Sophie Moore struggles with things left unsaid to her first love, and Alice is furious that someone got to Kate before she could exact her revenge.
At the same time, “Bruce Wayne” (played by 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 impostors as “Batwoman” and “Bruce” square off in the action-packed season premiere.”
Christie made his first appearance as “Bruce” (secretly Tommy in disguise) in Batwoman’s season 1 finale. The series previously established that the real Bruce Wayne has been missing for several years. But it’s possible that the original Dark Knight might be making his long-overdue return to Gotham in the future.
Batwoman season 2 will premiere on Sunday, January 17 at 8pm on The CW.
