Batwoman has finally returned, airing the season 2 premiere on January 17. Viewers finally met Ryan Wilder, played by Javicia Leslie, who takes up the mantle of the titular superhero. As we begin to get into the season, The CW has been releasing photos for upcoming episodes. Most recently, they shared photos for the third episode of the season, “Bat Girl Magic!” Last week, they also dropped the synopsis for the episode.
Read on for the synopsis and new photos!
“NEW HERO, NEW SUIT – As Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) continues to prove herself as Batwoman, she encounters the challenge of every superhero – living a double life. Mary (Nicole Kang) is still Team Ryan, while Luke (Camrus Johnson) continues to have reservations – especially when Ryan makes some alterations and unveils a new Batsuit! Meanwhile, Victor Zsasz (guest star Alex Morf) is slashing his way through the city streets, and Commander Kane (Dougray Scott) has The Crows trying to stop the flow of Snakebite through Gotham. Safiyah (guest star Shivaani Ghai) takes notice of Alice’s (Rachel Skarsten) antics, and Sophie (Meagan Tandy) finds herself in unexpected circumstances. Holly Dale directed the episode written by Nancy Kiu (#203). Original airdate 1/31/2021.”
The episode 3 photos give us a look at Alex Morf in the role of Victor Zsasz, an encounter between Alice and Sophie, Mary in what seems like an intense situation at the clinic, and a couple of behind-the-scenes photos. We also get a glimpse of the new batsuit, made all the better with Ryan choosing to turn in the wig for her natural curls. Bat girl magic, indeed.
Batwoman airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. C on The CW. Keep up with our recaps and other coverage of the show here.
