Say goodbye to Kate Kane … and hello to the bloodthirsty daughter of the Black Mask!
This week Batwoman presented a new villain in Kate, who was completely brainwashed to believe that she was the daughter of Roman Zionis, Circe
The episode saw her put on a new mask and go heel to toe with both Batman and Alice in a brutal (and super cool !!!) download while fulfilling the Black Mask’s orders. Although Kate doesn̵
“She doesn’t remember anything.” She fully believes it’s Circe for now, “Wallis Day, who plays Kate Kane / Circe, told TVLine. “As the rainbow continues, you will see fragments of Kate’s memory that begin to return.”
With Alice already in close proximity – Circe took her captive at the end of the episode – it’s only a matter of time before the cracks begin to show in the intricate brainwashing of his daughter’s Black Mask. “Alice is the first character I interact with and there’s so much tension between them, but I don’t think Alice can put her finger on what she is,” Day explains. “There are moments you’ll see when you think, ‘Hold on, is Kate there?’ Does he know Alice?
“Alice is much smarter than we give her credit, and she feels something is wrong. I think she recognizes something, “she added.
Kate’s barbaric behavior is a stark contrast to the heroic vigilance we knew in Season 1. The edge and grit shown by this new Kate, also known as Circe, is the result of conversations between Day and showrunner Caroline Dries about how to approach this new , another conflicting version of the character.
“Kate has experienced a lot more than she does now in Season 1, so she’s much deeper,” Day said. “Caroline said she wanted me to play my version of Kate and not try to repeat anything that was done in season 1.”
The new Kate has a bone to choose from with a lot of people in Gotham, so everyone should be on high alert. As she takes revenge, you will see “the war going on in her head with Kate, who is obviously a hero, and then with Circe, who wants to do evil things,” says Day.
Dan remains modest about who exactly will look for Circe in Gotham, but she was annoyed that the masked villain would “meet Batzen” at some point.
Kate may not remember who she is, but her body still remembers the extensive military and combat training she went through over the years, which makes her huge a threat to anyone he meets soon.
“All of Kate’s attributes and skills are already intertwined with this villain, so we see that they have been used in a completely different way,” Denn said. “She is in revenge and she has this chance that she never thought she would get. She will take it and do what she has to do. “
