    What's wrong with you? No criminal brings it upon themselves to be murdered while in custody.

    Break her legs.
    Meaning she goes to a hospital, which aren't secure.

    But I guess that's because they weren't related.
    Yes, in part. That's the point, along with these other points we keep going in circles about.

    Yeeeaaaaaahhh, honestly, I think went a bit overboard there. You were right to call me out on that.

    So compromise and a simple solution: Call Barry and have him lock her up in the pipeline.

    Alice's invincibility and the inability of anyone but Mary to best her is one of the reasons I no longer watch.

    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!

    Kate did best her in episode 5. She just didn't arrest her.

    And she was sick when she fought Mary.

    And she escapes from everywhere and beats multiple trained officers and has run roughshod over Gotham with a gang of 4 guys in furry costumes.

    Willing suspension of disbelief is a personal thing. Mine ended with this show, yours not. I get why people who are bigger fans of the character are giving the show more leeway.

    I wouldn't go that far, I've been plenty critical of the show, I was just pointing something out.

    I would like to know where Alice is getting all of her mooks though.

    Switching gears a bit, what's everyone's favorite moments in the series? Can be anything! I for instance, liked Kate best during the Crisis Crossover. She had good interactions with Kara.

    This is only an issue if you presume she has no training, which there's zero reason to.

    and has run roughshod over Gotham with a gang of 4 guys in furry costumes.
    More like 4 dozen. C'mon, don't exaggerate!

    Yes, other badly written villains.

    When you have to make up stuff about a character, with zero evidence from the show to back it up, just to explain something...bad writing.

    Understood. Not criticizing you for still watching.

    Having gaps in a character's backstory is not in any way bad writing. Besides, there is evidence already: Alice's capabilities themselves. She knows how to fight, thus she had to have learned how at some point.

    Pseudo-vampire was cool, and I liked Kate's UV light app thing.

    Nice tie there, Luke. Mary had to put things together soon enough. After getting past her initial feelings of anger, I'm sure she will be an asset to Team Batwoman. Hopefully this will bring Kate and Mary closer, there's still a bit of a rift between them.

    Would be the first genuinely good thing she'd be doing.
    Her or maybe Mouse. Alice needs to be stopped and punished, but I do still have some sympathy for Mouse.

    Opening up her bar across the street from that restaurant was a pretty gutsy move. Or maybe stopping that train.

    I was wondering what Mary would feel angry about, other then the lying of course, until I realize she'll probably think the reason Batwoman hasn't stopped Alice is because she's her sister.
    Her or maybe Mouse. Alice needs to be stopped and punished, but I do still have some sympathy for Mouse.
    I kind of stopped sympathizing with Mouse when he became Alice's cheerful partner in crime and helped frame Jacob/kill Catherine. Still feel bad for what he went through, but he owns who he is now just like Alice does.

    I am sorry, but leaving gaps for the viewers to explain away things isn't good writing.
