We have a Batwoman 2×16 synopsis! The episode is titled “Rebirth” and will focus heavily on Ryan Wilder and Mary Hamilton having some kind of issue. Whatever is going on will test their relationship, both as friends and roommates, to its limit.
Here’s the synopsis for ya below!
“CAN’T LET IT GO – When a familiar foe descends upon Gotham, Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) and Mary (Nicole Kang) find they must rely on each other more than ever. Alice (Rachel Skarsten) has a has a new mission – and gets an unexpected ally to join her. Also starring Dougray Scott, Meagan Tandy and Camrus Johnson. Michael Allowitz directed the episode written by Daniel Thomsen.”
“I’m especially excited to see this new relationship happen, in the wake of Mary dealing with this mysterious disappearance, and how she decides to sort of take it and take it hard,” Kang previously explained during the show’s DC FanDome panel last year. “She’s been a person who, I think, is always looking for family, is always looking for community, is always looking for somebody to see her. Which is, I think, a huge source of why the clinic exists for her, there are just much deeper personal reasons for that. And I think Mary and Ryan sort of have that in common, perhaps, which is why I think Mary really looks to Ryan, in this way.”
We’re expecting some further development from Alice during this episode, as well. This episode should bring about some kind of new mission for her. What that means exactly has yet to be revealed.
There is a good chance that it has something to do with the fact that she knows Kate, her sister, is alive. In fact, Alice is the only one who is aware of the fact that Kate is alive currently.
“We have the Bat Team and all of Kate’s loved ones looking for her for the first half of the season, and they definitively learn that she’s dead so that they can now close the book on Kate and grieve, but the audience is let in on this huge secret that she’s alive,” showrunner Caroline Dries explained in an interview earlier this year, “and that then propels these two parallel stories moving on to the second half of our season which [are]: the Bat Team coalescing without Kate, and Kate going through her mysterious journey as will unfold as the season goes on.”
Batwoman airs Sundays at 9/8c on The CW. “Rebirth” will air on July 13th.
