Considering everything that happened the last time we checked in with The CW's Batwoman, it's understandable that Kate (Ruby Rose), Alice (Rachel Skarsten) and the folks over at Gotham would need to grab a few weeks off for a breather. We had family secrets literally being buried, a father-daugher/sister-sister double-cross that actully had us feeling for Alice, and Sophie (Meagan Tandy) nearly ending up on the wrong end of a hitman's sniper rifle. What impressed us the most, though? Being reminded that Jacob (Dougray Scott) is a military guy and can do some serious damage. Granted, we didn't think it would be "hitman-dies-from-blunt-force-trauma"-level damage but then again? The hitman started it.
So with the series set to return Sunday, April 26, The CW is offering viewers an early preview of an episode that's either clearly influenced by the Saw films or is one ten-ton coincidence. Either way, Gotham City finds itself at the mercy of a madman and there's no Batwoman around to save the day. Which means it's time for Kate's "Scooby Gang" to step up and the CROWS to take flight, though it looks like "Papa CROW's" wings are about to be clipped permanently:
