WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for “A Secret Kept From All The Rest,” the penultimate episode of Batwoman Season 1.
It’s official: Batwoman has given Tommy Elliot his Hush moniker.
In “A Secret Kept From All the Rest,” the penultimate episode of Season 1, Tommy went to Gotham University on a mission for Alice. Because Alice refused to give him a new face until she could decode Lucius Fox’s journal, he set out to kidnap intelligence officers from all around the city. This particular abduction took place in a library, which led the Gotham City Police Department to coin his name.
As he made his way around the library, Tommy took out bystanders with his pistols. When he finally found his target, he pointed a gun at his head and whispered, “Hush.” As witnesses reported the incident to the GCPD, they revealed this was all he said — and so this is what GCPD began to call him.
In her daily talk show, Vesper Fairchild spread the word far and wide. “Good morning, Gotham! Or should I say, good morning, Gotham?” she said, swapping her booming announcer voice out for a low whisper. “After a showdown in GU’s library last night, the GCPD have coined the bandage-wrapped gunslinger after the only word witnesses heard him utter: ‘Hush.’ Welcome to Gotham City, Hush. Sounds like you’re gonna fit right in.”
Tommy received his iconic Hush outfit in “If You Believe in Me, I’ll Believe in You,” last week’s episode. In that episode, Alice offered him freedom in exchange for Lucius’ journal. To do that, she needed to make the world believe Tommy Elliot is dead. So, she cut Tommy’s face off and slapped it on another inmate, who was later found hanging in his cell. Then, she refused to give Tommy a new face until Lucius’ journal was decoded and left his head wrapped in bandages.
Unfortunately for Tommy, Alice continues to alter the deal. At first, she wanted the journal before giving him a new face. Then, she wanted him to help her decode it. Now that she has decoded the journal, she refuses to give him a new face until he helps her kill Batwoman. However, a supervillain mutiny appears to be brewing, as the Season 1 finale synopsis hints that both Hush and Mouse are growing tired with Alice’s demands.
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.
