    Yes, I could see this happening in a small diner in the South. But in a large metropolitan city like Gotham at a posh upscale restaurant? No, I can't see this happening.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Yeah, that van accident was.....reckless, to say the least.

    Also, was it said what happened to Jacob?

    I could see it happening if they were being outrageous, but for hand holding? I'm with you, Kirby.

    Earlier this month a group of 18 black people at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in a suburb of Chicago was asked to move to another table because a white customer didn't want to sit near black people.
    The restaurant employees were fired and the white customer was banned from all their restaurants for life when word got out what had happened. If this still happens to black people I can see it still
    happening to gay people.

    Kara did the same thing in the episode where she ended up going to Slaver's Moon.

    Yes, and there is a world of difference between that and two women holding hands in an upscale elegant restaurant. This wasn't Chic Fil A.
    But this was just one of my list of a dozen dumb things in this episode.

    Well , I have to say I’m kind of disappointed that Sophie didn’t really tell Jacob Kate was Batwoman- I’m waiting to see that inevitable reveal. But, I’m hoping Jacob will be cool with it,though I’m guessing that probably won’t be the case.

    Someone said they doubted women hand holding would be enough to cause a stink.

    In any big city, like New York, Boston, LA, Chicago, etc... which Gotham is suppose to be. This simply would not happen in a restaurant of this level. Some small mom & pop joint or a low price franchise, sure. But a high end white tablecloth place, no.

    I see. I was just hoping that the TV show would be loyal to the comic book material with the same age gap, but there goes that idea.

    Why are they talking about Bruce being so isolated and only having Lucius and Alfred? Was the Robin name-drop just a joke? Because if not, then he had a partner. Unless things ended so badly with Robin that they just don't talk about him.

    Sophie feels so wishy-washy, whether it be her feelings for Kate, what she wants to do, or what she tells Tyler.

    Mary thought she and Kate were finally bonding? Have they even really interacted since episode 2? Mary's talked more with Batwoman then she has Kate on this show. But I do feel for her losing her family (at least from a legal standpoint), although it's weird to see her calling Jacob "dad."

    After Reagan and Julia, I'd half-think Kate had a thing for hot blonde's.

    At least Julia treats Luke well. It's kind of interesting seeing all this interconnectedness from the "Batfamily" with everybody knowing everybody.

    I guess it's good to know Kate is a good shot even while hungover...although now I feel bad for the cadets who participated who were completely sober.

    Wayne Tower security is getting to be as effective as STAR Labs security. Although is Mary now an unofficial employee as their real estate design consultant? I'm sure she won't stumble into the Batcave every time she walks into that room unannounced .

    Is nobody going to ask why they were designing a gun that could pierce the Batsuit? That seems very specific.

    Ah, the old "have someone else dress up in my costume" maneuver .

    I feel bad for those Crows just doing their job who got beat up and their van crashed thanks to Kate .

    On the one hand, it's good that Jacob really didn't hear that Kate might be Batwoman because then he'd never get that out of his head...but on the other hand, now Catherine thinks there's more hope for saving her marriage then there is. Then again, it did seem like Jacob was too warm to her after what she did.

    So The Rifle worked with Safiyah? I wonder why she wanted him to kill Batwoman...unless she knows it's Kate and wanted payback on her ex, assuming they incorporate their relationship from the comics. Although Alice seems to know her intimately, so I wonder if they'd transplant Kate's time in Coryana to Beth.

    Did people not have a good opinion of Bruce? I always imagined he was a very popular and successful philanthropist.

    That's not odd at all. My sister has a different father, but after our mom remarried, she has always called my dad 'Dad'. Probably because my dad actually cares for her, and her dad is an alcoholic gambling addict.


    As for Bruce- that really depends on what interpretation of him they are using. Sometimes he's a popular and successful philanthropist, and sometimes he plays up the 'irresponsible party boy' image to the hilt. Prime example of that was in the No Man's Land story- near the end, while working to stop Lex from taking over Gotham before it reopened, Bruce played like he was a lazy idiot while he let Lucius do the public work. Same thing in The Dark Knight, with the Asian businessman where he 'slept' through a meeting.

    Possibly similar to Bruce himself, they wanted to be prepared if he ever went rogue. If he had, Hamilton could contact the GCPD and be like "Hey, we've got just the thing that can stop him."

    The Batsuit gun is another bit of idiocy. A marksman like "the Rifle" should be able to shoot him/her in the face with a sniper rifle. Or just toss a hand grenade. Inventing an anti-Bat weapon sounds like something from the Adam West Batman.

    Except Batman's been MIA for years, and the gun had to be in development BEFORE Kate became Batwoman.

    Not idiotic at all. The suit is perfectly bulletproof up to .50 caliber rounds. And is resistant to explosions. A coil or rail gun is the only known way to penetrate it.

    It was. Catherine said they put the project on hold when Batman went missing, and brought it back when Batwoman appeared.
