Episode 5, "Mine is a long and sad tale"

[some SPOILERS ahead]

"General":
This episode was nearly entirely dedicated to shine a big spotlight on Alice's/Beth's past. What has happened to her after she survived the accident at the bridge?
And that is one sad, emotional story for sure!

My highlights from this episode:

1 - ...of course....the flashbacks telling how Beth became Alice! - A very intense atmosphere with tragedy and sadness. I loved the dark atmosphere, the mad father who tried to help his son by committing ...insane....crimes. And seeing Kate and Beth so close together, yet Beth couldn't be rescued from the hellhole.... a big moment of the show.
2 - The showdown at the farm! Kate, Jacob and Sophie VS Mouse and Alice. Loved that! Especially as Jacob was talking to Alice and finally realising/admitting that she was his lost daughter.
3 - Sophie realising that Kate is ....Batwoman! - Well, it wasn't 100% shown, but as Kate lies her finger on Sophie mouth to shut her up....that was pretty much like she did it in episode 1 as Batwoman. Sophie already was suspecting that Kate was under that cowl...but now I do think she is very sure about it. And judging by the trailer for next week...this will be a big plot point in that episode.
4 - Mary and Luke - Some really good and funny lines. Talking about the "skin pirate" and ordering pizza. :lol:
And damn, Mary was verrrry sexy in that dress and overknee boots! :-)
The short Batwoman scene had one flaw in my eyes. It is supposed to be dark, so the bad guys can't see Batwoman. But the scene is flooded with "moonlight"..hard to believe that the bad guys doesn't see anything.
I do really like the episode as it was important to show how Beth became Alice, and they did it really good! Of course with nearly the whole episode dedicated to that.... there was only a bare minimum of Batwoman in this episode. Just about one minute of her. That is even less than in the pilot, and a HUGE difference to the last one. It looks like that will change again next week, where Batwoman is already very much present in the tiny trailer.
As Alices past is now explained, I wonder when we will get to see more of Kates past. There should be much to tell too!
Looking forward to see more of Mouse, and I'm sure that he will play a big role ...in combination with his "sister" Alice.
I really have HIGH expectations for the next episode after watching the trailer! Especially with the Sophie and Batwomanpart and also on how Jacob will start to come after Batwoman, as she is an enemy in his eyes.

Very good review. Please continue with these.

However, as a suggestion, it would be wisest to pool / condense them together in one or two ongoing threads rather than spreading them out across the board. Otherwise, we will have 22 threads (one for each episode) by season's end, not including the crossover one - which will be quite extensive (to cover / include BW, SG, Flash, Arrow and LOT) in December. ;)

I actually enjoy one thread per episode. Not sure why the Supergirl board started compressing them.

OK, not a biggie! Whatever is best suited or preferred will win the day. Mine was merely a suggestion. :)

As an OT observation: Gee, the Batwoman forum and site is still pretty quiet despite the show getting very good reviews, apparent fan interest and decent numbers by the CW's standards. What gives?

Truth be told, there's some good stuff here and I'm very intrigued as to why more people aren't chipping in? The US fanbase alone should be able to spare a decent number of interested souls. I know that the international market may be a little slower in catching on since not all countries have picked it up (may or may not depending on the region), but we're more than a month in and nary a noticeable budge in News Page and board contributions. :o

If this were field of dreams then I've upheld my part of this deal. I built it. Waiting for them to come now. I could do more encouragement on the SG side of things. All that said, this is pretty much how SG was when I first started it. Regardless, invite your friends, the site might be darker than others, but we don't bite.
