'Pennyworth' Season 2 Episode 5: Will the show announce Martha's pregnancy after it returns from the break?
It is likely the pregnancy announcement will probably happen in the finale, assuming 'Pennyworth' has a Season 3 in the offing
Ahead of 'Pennyworth's Season 2 premiere, the news of Martha Kane (Emma Paetz) being pregnant with Thomas Wayne's (Ben Aldridge) baby was confirmed. Whether this would mean the arrival of a baby Bruce Wayne is yet to be seen. For that matter, we have no idea if the series will actually break the news of her pregnancy as soon as it returns from the mid-season finale sometime in early 2021.
In Episode 4: 'The Hunted Fox', we see Thomas and Martha get cozy and share a steamy bit of romance. The storyline follows Thomas's sister, Patricia Wayne (Salóme Gunnarsdóttir) dating a fashion icon. The man is no different from Aleister Crowley and is an absolute womanizer who hints at having sex with Martha under the pretext of trying to get her to change her wardrobe. Thomas and Patricia arrive at Martha's to find him tied up and gagged.
Needless to say, the fun bit of an otherwise serious episode ends with Thomas and Martha getting together. This, of course, might be the start of what will be a relationship that we know would end in marriage. With the season opener and the previous season giving a detailed look at their chemistry, this might be the confirmation fans need to know Bruce Wayne is well on his way. It is still unclear as to when 'Pennyworth' will return and that means a long wait before we actually hear or see more of the duo.
Talking to TVLine, Paetz did tease nothing was ever going to be easy. "I think that nothing ever runs that smoothly for Martha and Thomas in their dealings with each other — and Season 2 continues on along that path."
Harrier Slater, who plays Sandra in the series, confirmed the show had wrapped up production, there's unlikely to be any much editing room work done during the holidays and that would mean the show would return only sometime in the last week of January or early March. It is likely the pregnancy announcement will probably happen in the finale as well, assuming 'Pennyworth' has one more season to offer. This would mean seeing more of their relationship before they actually settled in Gotham with Alfred. For now, only time will tell how things will pan out.
'Pennyworth' Season 2 returns on EPIX in 2021.
