The Marquis’ Devilish Joker Antics Reach New Levels In Batwoman‘S The season 3 finale, forcing Team Bats to find a way to take him down, once and for all.
An opening sequence, interspersed with flashbacks of a young Marquis being defeated by the Joker, shows the Marquis raiding the Bat Cave as part of his grand plan for Gotham: to drop acid bombs on the city from Bat Blimp flying overhead.
Meanwhile, Alice – who has been hallucinating about the men she has killed – reaches a tipping point and is electrocuting herself with the socket wrench she installed when Mary finds her in the his prison cell. Realizing that Alice might not have survived her next incident, Mary emotionally begged Team Bats to give her the Joker Buzzer. When they refused her request, Mary pointed out their promise to listen to her, also noting that while it hasn’t been easy for her, Alice deserves a second chance.
Their conversation is interrupted by a citywide warning from the Marquis, who promises to reveal Batwoman’s identity in five hours. When Ryan went “running errands,” Jada dropped by unannounced to provide full access to her team’s cutting-edge technology and help track down Marquis before it was too late.
Ryan, however, doesn’t quite grasp the essentials when she visits Alice in prison, asking about why the old villain thinks she deserves a Joy Buzzer. Alice’s answer wasn’t very convincing until she admitted that she did not thought she deserved to be forewarned, and then offered to exchange information about the Marquis’ agenda. Those details helped Ryan form his own plan, which involved Luke hacking Bat Blimp to land at the GCPD police station and somehow evacuate the entire city.. This needs her mother’s help.
Engaging her as his daughter, Ryan asked Jada to reinstate her as CEO of Wayne Enterprises. This move forces Jada to reveal a dark family secret: Marquis Franklin’s father did not die in an accidental fall, as previously reported. Jada’s accusations were enough to get Marquis removed from the company, and Ryan restored to power with full access to the Bat Cave.
Marquis catches Luke changing the train’s coordinates and kills his pilot, prompting Ryan to board the plane with her grappling gun and confront her brother directly. Mary, meanwhile, broadcasts Sophie’s warning message for the cover of the civilians of Gotham, aided by Penguin’s hypnotic umbrella. As a result, people started clearing the way.
Once everyone has dispersed, Sophie worries that the Marquis will plant a bomb while Ryan is still on the ship – leading to a brief couple quarrel in which Ryan is determined to stay and save everyone, and Sophie said to Ryan, “I Not lose you.” Their cute moment, alas, was interrupted by an unimpressed Marquis ready to throw down.
The train fight scene begins, and Ryan begs the Joker to return her brother. Looks like her pleas struck a chord, until Marquis shoved her out of the fireplace! Tumbling toward Earth, Ryan used his shotgun to take Marquis with him and launched her parachute just in time to make a rough landing on the roof of the police station. Although she is fine, it seems that Marquis did not survive the fall.
Back in the storm, Batwing arrived with just a few minutes left before it exploded across the city. But his father’s AI is the only one capable of overriding controls, and that means sacrificing technology for a greater good. This time, however, Luke had to say goodbye to his father. Parting with the AI, he jumped off the fireplace just before it exploded.
Appearing out of nowhere on the roof, Marquis instigated another scuffle with Ryan that sent them both to the ground. When Batwoman clung to her brother, refusing to let him go, Alice came at the perfect time to be a hero. A flashback to her earlier prison conversation shows Ryan handing Alice Joy Buzzer, noting that she really doesn’t need it because she’s strong enough to survive everything else that happens to her. . And you know what? Message passed! Alice gave the whistle back to Ryan, who later used it on the Marquis. Alice may have done the right thing to help Ryan, but that still doesn’t make them friends.
As the dust settles, Ryan and Jada are relieved to see Marquis awake and seemingly cured. “Nice to meet you,” he told his sister.
Plus, Alice decides to leave the city – giving up her platinum hair for a brown one – to embark on a journey of self-discovery. At Bat Cave, the team celebrated their big win, and Ryan even started redecorating by replacing the baseball in the glass case with a Martha Wayne pearl necklace.
In a final twist, dedicated Gotham journalist Dana Dewitt (Allison Riley) is brutally murdered while reporting from the site of a toxic train crash. We do not know Who is behind the murder, but a mysterious figure in tattered clothes limping out suggests big trouble ahead for Team Bats….
