Batwoman 1.8 – A Mad Tea Party

There’s a fairly amazing one-take/one-shot bit in this episode where Batwoman beats her way through a lobby of goons. Other than that, none of us really enjoyed this installment much at all. It ends, like I fear much modern television ends, at a crisis (no pun intended), with one major character dead and several relationships strained to breaking point, nobody ready to trust anybody again, and everything left in limbo until things pick back up in January.

Isn’t eight episodes enough for one non-superpowered villain? I’d really have preferred it had this one ended with Alice either arrested or killed, wiping the slate for next week’s crossover, and then we could start a new villain arc in episode ten. So color me disappointed.
