Batwoman Deals With Betrayal in "A Secret Kept From All the Rest" Synopsis

The CW has released an official synopsis for "A Secret Kept From All the Rest", the nineteenth episode of Batwoman's debut season. The synopsis hints at quite a lot of major revelations for the series, namely that Kate Kane/Batwoman (Ruby Rose) will be dealing with the betrayal of someone close to her. This will make matters worse when two of her strongest allies, Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), and Julia Pennyworth (Christina Wolfe), go missing, which will cause her to rely on her stepsister, Mary Hamilton (Nicole Kang), who recently revealed that yes, she does know Kate is Batwoman.

You can check out the synopsis for "A Secret Kept From All the Rest" below!

"CRACKING THE CODE – When members of Gotham's intelligentsia begin disappearing, Commander Kane (Dougray Scott), Sophie (Meagan Tandy) and the Crows go searching for the newest homicidal threat to the city. In the meantime, Kate (Ruby Rose) is consumed with someone’s betrayal and starts questioning the loyalty of everyone around her just when she needs them most. So when Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Julia (guest star Christina Wolfe) go missing, Batwoman must rely on Mary (Nicole Kang) and a former foe to deploy her rescue mission.

Meanwhile, Alice (Rachel Skarsten) enlists Tommy Elliot (guest star Gabriel Mann) to help acquire an elusive item that her sister also seeks. Greg Beeman directed the episode written by Jerry Shandy and Kelly Larson."

The plot synopsis also hints at an alliance between Elizabeth Kane/Alice (Rachel Skarsten) and Tommy Elliot (Gabriel Mann), both of whom are currently locked up in Arkham Asylum. As we saw in the series' most-recent episode, Alice and Mouse (Sam Littlefield) have decided to make the best out of their current situation, and are hoping to rule Arkham from the inside out. How Tommy fits into all of that, especially considering his eccentric DC Comics history, will certainly be interesting to see.


"Alice finds herself in a very different environment going forward," Skarsten told in March. "She finds herself some new enemies and some new allies. I had a particularly fun time filming her interactions with some new characters in this new environment. You see this more playful side of Alice, outside of her interactions with her family only. That was really fun for me to do. Then, from there, we're going to see Alice start to get really dark."

Batwoman airs Sundays at 8/7c on The CW. "A Secret Kept From All the Rest" will air on May 10th.
