Tonight’s episode of Batwoman will force Kate to contend with an unexpected problem: the arrival of an alternate-universe Beth.
We know from The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event that there are numerous Earths, all of which have their own versions of the DC characters living on them. And it appears Kate will be meeting an alternate version of her twin sister during this week’s episode of Batwoman — one who wasn’t taken captive after the tragic car accident that altered her life, and one who certainly doesn’t seem to be a murderer.
This Beth popped up at the end of last week’s episode, and Kate was understandably taken aback to see her. After all, Alice is in custody and Kate’s written her off after her actions during the show’s midseason finale. But this new Beth is the sister Kate has been missing all these year’s — and why do we feel like she won’t last very long?
The preview suggests that we’ll be seeing plenty of both versions of Kate’s sister throughout tonight’s episode. While Kate and the new Beth attempt to figure out what she’s doing there, Mouse is trying to get Alice out of Sophie’s clutches.

Whatever Mouse is threatening to do, it seems like it’s working — at least if Kate’s plea to “let Alice go” is anything to go by. We hope he doesn’t get his hands on the new Beth, but that would be an interesting direction to take the story in, particularly given how unhappy Alice will be to meet her new doppelgänger.
Batwoman fans are in for another action-packed episode full of surprises, and it’s not one they’ll want to miss out on.
