Wait, is everyone on this show gay because it feels like everyone on this show is gay.
I promised myself I wouldn’t spend this entire recap yelling, “BLACK WOMEN THOUGH!!” but in this scene (and another later), we get three Black women sharing screentime, and two of them are queer main characters on a network superhero drama. I didn’t know I was allowed to want this when Black Lightning entered my life, and for it to be happening again? Teenage Nic is screaming right now.
Everyone in Gotham City goes to Coryana to look for Kate Kane and everyone almost dies because of it, which is ironic because of who’s actually alive back in Gotham City.
Ryan and Alice confront their pasts, Mary DRIVES THE BATMOBILE, and Sophie’s arms got something to say about it.
Angelique and Ryan get closer, Sophie gets a new nickname, and Ryan’s Kryptonite wound is OUT OF CONTROL.
Ryan reconnects with her ex-girlfriend who we do not trust but want to trust but it’s hard! Also, All Crows Are Bastards, there’s a new non-binary character in town, and Alice is missing memories!
Ryan’s ex is back in town, and Alice and Sophie are getting AWFULLY CLOSE.
Y’all, the scream I let out when BATWOMAN flies down, sticks the landing, and power poses in a wig that Beyoncé would be proud of. And yes, I said Batwoman. Because Ryan finally moved from putting on the suit to wearing the suit. Do you see her now?
Have I mentioned how much I love Ryan Wilder? I have? Okay cool, just checking.
It’s early, but it’s pretty safe to say that I will lay down my life for Ryan Wilder.
