Love is complicated, especially when the object of your affection is related to a villain.
In “If You Believe in Me, I’ll Believe in You,” the latest episode of Batwoman, Kate Kane ran into her ex Reagan at Tommy Elliot’s nightclub. Though Kate was there to steal back Lucius Fox’s journal, she reconnected with Reagan in the process. The two ended up back at Kate’s place, where Reagan took the journal while Kate was sleeping and ran.
Later, Reagan met up with Magpie, who was released from Arkham Asylum by Alice in order to retrieve the precious journal. “Hope you know you cost me a really hot girlfriend, Magpie,” Reagan snapped, sliding the journal over to Magpie. “Again.”
“That’s what you get for falling for a mark again,” Magpie shot back. “You know how this works. We steal from the rich because they’ll never miss it. You aren’t supposed to miss them.”
Reagan shook her head. “You got your book,” she said with a bite of anger in her voice. “You can trade it for your freedom, but I’m out. I’m done being advance scout for Magpie.”
“I thought you’d do anything for your sister,” Magpie replied.
“I’m pretty sure I just did,” Reagan spat. With that, she took her bag and walked away.
Notably, both Reagan and Magpie debuted in the Season 1 episode “Who Are You?”, where Reagan was a bartender at Elliot Tower and Magpie was the theiving villain of the week. They appeared to be two sides of the same coin; Reagan believed conditions for the city’s poor could be improved by those who are better off, while Magpie made a point to steal from the rich. As it turns out, this is because they’re sisters.
In recent episodes, Lucius’ journal has become a point of contention between Team Batwoman and Gotham’s worst criminals. After all, the journal contains the key to all of Wayne Technology, including some Bat weaponry. Tommy had Lucius killed for it, then kept it in a secret vault. Alice wanted it as well, if only to take something Kate so desperately wanted back lest it fall into the wrong hands. However, it seems it won’t be much use to anyone, since Lucius wrote the journal in code.
Created by Caroline Dries and developed by Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, Batwoman stars Ruby Rose, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott, Elizabeth Anweis and Nicole Kang. The series airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
