Ryan Meets Jada Jet On Next Week’s ‘Batwoman’

by Erik Amaya

It seems Sophie’s (Meagan Tandy) investigation was noticed. As seen in this preview for next week’s Batwoman, Jada Jet (Robin Givens) makes her way to Wayne Tower to discuss the security break with the company’s CEO … who just happens to be Ryan (Javicia Leslie) at the moment. Is it a reunion of sorts or a chance to size up the competition?

As reported earlier in the summer, Givens’ character may be Ryan’s biological mother. Although, we hope that mystery turns out to have more of a twist as it unfolds and Jada turns out to be something else. In fact, a proper mystery would likely help the show as the new premised teased at the end — Ryan and Alice (Rachel Skarsten) must work together to recover the missing Batman trophies — has a fetch quest element to it that could get old real quick. Just look at the way Supergirl had to pivot from its fetch quest story after a few episodes.

That said, we’re happy to see Renee Montoya (Victoria Cartagena) as the one forcing the two to work together. Also, we were glad to hear her say “answer the question” as, well … y’know. It might be a lot to ask for that development in Renee’s story, but we’d be quite happy to see it.

Batwoman airs Wednesdays on The CW.
