Batwoman - Drink Me

While Gotham believes her dead, Alice Rachel Skarsten) fumes over Kate (Ruby Rose) choosing to let her die while also spending quite a bit of time trampsing around Gotham searching for the missing Mouse (Sam Littlefield). Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) returns to work, although it's not clear on how exactly he was acquitted, which is a problem for Sophie (Meagan Tandy) when her boss discovers his number two is a bit too chummy with Batwoman, completely oblivious to the fact that the vigilante is his daughter or that having someone with a good working relationship with Batwoman would be a far greater asset than a liability to the Crows whose recent setbacks have them hemorrhaging clients all over the city.

While the cylical storylines continue to run headfirst into dead-ends and then return for seconds, "Drink Me" offers a new villain by dusting off mostly-forgotten 80s D-list Batman baddie Nocturna (Kayla Ewell) who is rebooted as a kinda, sorta, but not really, vampire. It makes as much sense as the rest of the show. Everything about the episode is forgettable, even the late night smooching session between Sopie and Batwoman, although at least one character is smart enough to follow the clues and making something resembling a deductive leap as Mary (Nicole Kang) comes to realization about what her half-sister is doing with her nights.
