The CW has released a new batch of photos for "A Lesson from Professor Pyg", the fifth episode of Batwoman's fifth season. The photos best showcase the dinner between Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie), Jada Jet (Robin Givens), Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy), and Marquis Jet (Nick Creegan). If recent episodes are any indication, that dinner is expected to be pretty complicated, given the revelations that Ryan is Jada's daughter, that Sophie might have romantic feelings for Ryan — and that Jada wants to use the new Mr. Freeze toxin to put Marquis on ice. The fact that the episode title also hints at the infamous Batman villain Professor Pyg is sure to only add to the drama.
It's unclear at this point if the show's version of Professor Pyg will be Lazlo Valentin, the man who holds the mantle in the pages of DC Comics, or someone else entirely, but given the track record Batwoman has had in its third season, it might be some sort of reinvention.
The photos also showcase a new meeting between Alice (Rachel Skarsten) and Renee Montoya (Caroline Dries), the latter of whom was introduced in the Season 3 premiere.
"She's old school, and she's been around, and she remembers Batman's Gotham and Gordon's Gotham," showrunner Caroline Dries explained in an interview earlier this year. "She knows that things don't end well when people get their hands on [the Bat trophies]. [Both Kate and Ryan as] Batwoman have done a great job of keeping the streets relatively safe for the last few years, but Renee sees a storm brewing - and she is terrified."
