Luke's (Camrus Johnson) life hangs in the balance heading into tonight's episode of The CW's Batwoman, with absolutely no thanks to Agent Tavaroff (Jesse Hutch)- making him nearly as hated right as Black Mask (Peter Outerbridge). But considering he's using "Kate Kane 2.0" (Wallis Day) as a Trojan horse to divide our heroes and crush the Kane family, he's going to be holding on to that top spot for some time to come. Ryan (Javicia Leslie), Jacob (Dougray Scott), Sophie (Meagan Tandy), and Mary (Nicole Kang) search for answers as to Luke's attacker- but they need to make sure they don't take their sights off of the season's biggest bad- a point Alice (Rachel Skarsten) looks to make to Mary in the following preview.
While not exactly the friendliest of "family reunions," Alice arrives with "enemy of my enemy" intentions and even Mary sees a sliver of heartbreak in Alice:
Now here's a look back at the preview images, episode overview, and promo for tonight's episode "Armed & Dangerous":
Batwoman Season 2, Episode 15 "Armed and Dangerous": IS THIS GOODBYE? – As Luke Fox's (Camrus Johnson) life hangs in the balance, repercussions from the devastating event are the catalyst for some life-changing decisions for those around him. Also starring Javicia Leslie, Dougray Scott, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, and Nicole Kang. Holly Dale directed the episode written by Nancy Kiu.
In season two of Batwoman, when Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) first discovers Kate Kane's Batsuit, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change. A sassy, smart lesbian with a difficult past, Ryan sees the suit as her chance to finally be powerful and no longer a victim as she survives in the tough streets of the city.
While Ryan goes rogue in the shadows, Gotham grapples with their missing hero, believing Batwoman has fled the city after a public stand-off with Commander Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and the Crows. But Kate Kane's disappearance hits hardest at home as Jacob, Sophie (Meagan Tandy), Luke (Camrus Johnson), Mary (Nicole Kang), and even Alice (Rachel Skarsten) each struggle with the devastating news in their own way. Meanwhile, the False Face Society tightens its grip on Gotham, distributing a perilous new drug known as Snakebite, "Bruce Wayne" (Warren Christie) finds his way home to wreak havoc, Safiyah (Shivaani Ghai) surfaces with plans for revenge, and a new set of villains descends on the city.
It's not long before Ryan realizes how much the symbol on the suit means to Gotham, launching her on a personal journey that takes her from fledgling substitute to confident caped crusader, from living in her van with her plant to chasing villains in the Batmobile. Ryan Wilder becomes a very different Batwoman than Kate Kane – her own Batwoman – but with the same understanding of what it means to be a hero.
Based on the characters from DC, Batwoman is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries, Smallville), Geoff Johns (Arrow, The Flash, Titans), Chad Fiveash (The Vampire Diaries, Gotham), James Patrick Stoteraux (The Vampire Diaries, Gotham) and Sarah Schechter (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl). Shivani Ghai (Dominion, The Catch), Leah Gibson (Jessica Jones), Nathan Owens (Devious Maids), and Alex Morf (Gotham) join the second season's cast.
