'Batwoman' will introduce Batman's nemesis Hush in 'Down, Down, Down', setting up a possibly riveting face-off in future
'Batwoman' Episode 3 'Down, Down, Down' promo has been released and with it, we have got one of the most interesting deets about the upcoming episode. Tommy Elliot, aka Hush, happens to be Batman, aka Kate Kane's cousin Bruce Wayne's nemesis. Elliot's alter ego happens to be one of the most exciting villains of the DC verse - Hush. Now by introducing him in the third episode of the show, we see so many possibilities open up for Batwoman's future. Of course, it isn't clear as to how big a part Elliot would play in the show, but for now, he is back in Gotham to upstage Bruce Wayne.
According to the teaser and the many speculations by fans, Elliot is back to throw a party in Gotham in Wayne's absence to show people how successful he really has become in the course. The fact that Wayne has been missing the last three years doesn't seem to influence his decision of throwing a party. Instead, he meets Kate who seems to hold her own in the promo. However, is this just a cameo that is added to tease fans or will this appearance play a bigger part in the upcoming episodes? For instance, IMDb lists actor Gabriel Mann who plays Elliot for one episode only. What can Elliot be expected to add to an episode that is surely going to center on Alice and Jacob Kane's animosity?
The upcoming episode will also see Kate's step-sister Mary grow closer to Sophie Moore, who would be assigned to protect her by Crows Security. Alice had sicced someone from her gang to kill Mary because she saw her as a threat. So, Mary is now expected to be attached to a security guard at all times. In the promo, we also see May make comments about getting total jealous vibes from Sophie, which is probably a reference to Sophie's past with Kate. This in addition to some stills that were released by The CW recently indicates that Kate may have just got her first love interest in the show.
Kate, aka Batwoman, is also finally getting her own suit in the next episode complete with her red wig and this will mark the beginning of Gotham learning about the existence of a new superhero in their city. She is not a stand-in for Batman and neither is she a replacement is what Kate wants to tell the world about her alter-ego.
