Kate takes on the breakout star from the 2013 breakout cartoon hit ” Beware the Batman ” : The Magpie !

Hopefully this episode will be more memorable than the reference that was just made about the cancelled cartoon series mentioned above. Lets Get into it

( Episode 4 Spoilers )

Brianne Howeys Reagan and Ruby Roses Kate Kane

This episode has a very similar structure to last weeks. From the introduction of a villain, to the use of alice as a background threat – this episode set the example of a standard episode for this season.

While Alice took the backseat once again, she at least had more to do this episode. She needs to either be the focus if the episode or gone. When shes the b story it just descalates her as a threat.

The combat was fun, although it would be more memorable if they extended the sequence or involved more of Kate’s tools. Since we’ve seen alot of hand to hand combat from Arrow, the stunt choreographers need to work on making these fights different.

The relationship between kate and Regan was nice, although the character seemed too charming to be wasted on a lesson about ” vigilantism demands sacrifice”. But it’s nice seeing Kate slowly moving on from sophie.

I’f theres one aspect of the show they need to work on is the relationship between Luke Fox and Kate.

While her idea about buying low income housing to benefit the community was great, but she was really rude to Luke when she told him about it.

He really just helps her because he wants to help the city, and there’s no real friendship between them. So if they ever start to form a relationship between them or even start to focus on the character at all , would be great.

  1. Seems like Luke was awfully rude to her about the Bat-a-rang among other things. Maybe that’s their vibe: rude to each other with a grudging growing respect. Seems weird to call her out for rudeness when he basically called her a lair about how she used the Bat-a-rang.

  2. This was almost so bad it was good. The scene where she crouches down and starts to cover the pearls as they blow up was so ridiculously comical. Like, how did she know which ones were going to go off and in what order?

    And there are a whole slew of other things that make me feel this show is trash. The FX, the acting, the music, horrible. The fighting is crap. The brief fight we got with Dove taking down a meth lab in Titans is better than anything I have seen so far on this show. The (admittedly brief) fight with Donna and Deathstroke is LIGHTYEARS ahead of this show.

    Hell, Iron Fist has better fight scenes than this show, and it was painful to watch a lot of that show on the heels of Daredevil.

    I feel like this is a peek into the Dark Nights: Metal Universe, but they gave us The Batwoman-Who-Makes-Us-Laugh. I’ll stick to watching Titans and Doom Patrol. I will still enjoy JLongbone tearing this show to shreds on Youtube if she watches anymore episodes.
