Meanwhile, Batwoman’s arch enemy, Alice (Rachel Skarsten), is focused on acquiring the only thing that can end the bat, carrying out her most twisted plan to date with the help of Bruce Wayne’s former best friend, Tommy Elliot. , who now terrorizes the city as the villain Hush.
The second season begins with a major game changer that will alter Gotham and the Bat Team forever. As the waters calm, Batwoman has everything against her – including the gallery of newly escaped villains – and everyone will come to see her in a new light. Alice encounters her partner when she becomes entangled with a dangerous enemy from her past who knows exactly how to take advantage of her vulnerabilities.

Meanwhile, the fledgling relationship between Sophie (Megan Tandy) and Julia (guest star Christina Wolfe) will face her first real test and make Sophie question everything she thought she knew to be true.
The shworunner Caroline Dries It has been even more explicit and confirms which character from the comics we will see in the second season, a character that they wanted to use for a long time but did not want to waste it in a secondary role in the first season either.
It would be Safiyah Sohail, which will be the great nemesis of the second season. This is the leader of the terrorist group Many Arms of Death and former ruler of a pirate nation called Coranya. A character with whom Ruby Rose also has a very close relationship in the comics. Nothing has been seen about Safiyah in the series yet, but her existence has been advanced because Julia Pennyworth revealed that the villain knew about Kate’s alter-ego.
Dries confesses that she loves Safiyah’s story from the comics and didn’t want to waste it on a small appearance during the first season, and that’s why they put it all together to make her the great villain yet to come:
We know that the fans say: esta This series only lacks one thing, and it is the lesbian pirates. ’ I love Safiyah’s story in the comics, and we knew we wanted to bring her in sometime. But we didn’t want to waste it or ruin her character in the first season, when there are all these other pirates going on. So we used her to be our bad girl in season two.
This was already dropped by Dries in the past, back in November, when he recognized that at the moment they only wanted to generate intrigue around the character.
