'Batwoman' Episode 6 promo shows new masked vigilante play judge and jury as he administers capital punishment, Sophie gets 'hit'
"He is using methods of capital punishment to kill his victims," Kate says. Then we see a man with a grotesque mask swinging his weapon. The biggest revelation in the promo is the fact that Sophie is "hit" after we see her follow Batwoman with a gun in her hand
After going up against her sister Beth who is now the Wonderland Gang's leader Alice (Rachel Skarsten) in episode 5, we will next see Kate as Batwoman go up against a man behind a mask. In the promo, Kate and Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson) discuss this villain's latest string of murders and Kate says, "He is using methods of capital punishment to kill his victims."
Then we see a man with a grotesque mask, possibly made of animal skin swinging his weapon, ready for his kill. Whether he makes it or not is not something we see. Batwoman has to find a way to stop him and it is in doing so that she possibly blew her cover with Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy).
Sophie probably knows Kate really well, considering how the two used to date when they were in the Military Academy. In fact, when Batwoman rescued Sophie from Alice in the first episode, Sophie had suspicions Kate was behind it all.
As she observed Kate further, she seems to have come to the same conclusion that Alice did -- Kate is Batwoman. In the promo, we see Sophie follow Batwoman with a gun in her hand.
It doesn't seem like the two are working together, but more like Sophie chanced upon the caped-crusader during her prowl. Sophie says, "Like the new look." This is possibly a reference to how Batwoman appeared when she had first rescued Sophie, and now.
Initially, Kate did not make changes to Bruce Wayne aka Batman's super suit when she took it out for a trial run. This was the reason why Gotham had mistaken her for Batman and it also led to Batman's enemies crawling out of the shadows.
One such villain happened to be Tommy Elliot aka Hush, who appeared in the third episode to kill Batman with a kill switch that Tommy stole from the Wayne building. This was one of the main reasons Kate realized it was important to make it clear to everyone she was not Batman, but a new Bat.
So she added the red wig and changes to the suit, and Gotham's very own Vesper Fairchild (voiced by Rachel Maddow), who is a radio show host, christened her 'Batwoman'. So, speaking of Sophie's comment; it doesn't necessarily mean she knows who Batwoman is.
However, the next scene of the promo saw Kate confess to Luke, "She knows who I am." Is she speaking of Sophie here? This is another question the episode will answer. Finally, the biggest revelation in the promo is the fact that Sophie is hit. What will Batwoman do now?
The next episode of 'Batwoman' will air on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
