The ending of Tonight’s Batwoman comes as a shocking death. It will undoubtedly have significant consequences for this series as the season goes on. But the episode tonight was not just Batwoman’s midseason finale episode. It was also the last episode of the series before the crossing “Crises on infinite earth” next week. As a result, the final minutes set the table for the spectacular five-night event, where the Arrowverse heroes must ultimately come together to take on the most significant threat that they have ever faced. It is how the episode is setting the stage.
The Behind Drama
The drama of the Kane Family takes the lead in this episode with Alice (Rachel Skarsten), who kills Catherine Hamilton Kane by poisoning an act that lands Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) in prison and Kate Kane / Batwoman (Rubie Rose)’s (Nicole Kang). The series ended with Kate promising her shackled father that she will never stand in his way as he tries to take Alice down once for all.
The exchange is a dominant note for Batwoman to close on for its midseason finale, but it wasn’t technically the last of the episode. A post-credits scene of sorts takes the audience to Central City on December 9th, 2019 at 11:58 p.m. And you’re staring at Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh) standing at the entrance of The Monitor’s Earth-1 “lair.” Nash talks of how the Multiverse has been crossed to destroy him, but The Monitor has “saved his life.” The voice of the Monitor told him “to send” and “to restart his life.” With the press of a series of symbols on the screen, a bright yellow light will show. The light swallows Nash and drives him to slams before his entrance.
This scene seems to prove generally–or at least it alludes very clearly–that Nash Well is truly Pariah. Back in July, it announced that Cavanagh would not only play the sixth-hour Harrison Wells ‘ iteration on the Flash but also Pariah as part of the crossover “The Crisis on the Infinite Earths.”
Pariah is a massive revelation to followers of the 12-emergence Comics series of similar titles changed by the “crisis” of the CW. Pariah is one of the world’s greatest scientists in Comics (real known as Kell Mossa), and it’s unorthodox experiments to view a universe that allows the Anti-Monitor to detect his earth’s existence and then kill it with waves of anti-matter. Due to the Observer, Pariah lives and ends up moving from one Planet to the next.
He has to see planet after world after world perishes because of this. During the crisis, Pariah accused of the death of his world, but he ultimately said he’s not responsible. The anti-monitor reveals that his scientific experiments did not unlock the energy to destroy universes. The anti-monitor opened a portal that converted the heat from the anti-monitor and thus destroyed Pariah’s world. Pariah and Lady Quark, whom he rescued from Earth 6, invite Harbinger to take part in the discovery of new Reformed land at the end of the crisis.
While in this short scene, Nash never uses the word Pariah, The Monitor-who we hear but not see-says he has saved his life. The Monitor which keeps Pariah shows him the actual state of Multiverse, even the deaths of many worlds. It is critical. When we thought that, Barry Allen would see “billions” die by using Jay Garrick’s helmet.

The Guggenheim Statement
“We will begin — this is an exception — we’ll continue the way the comic begins. And the goal is that we apply these key moments to main comic moments,” Guggenheim said.
“We also had a panel that DC set up for me yesterday that discussed important issues of chaos on the Infinite Earths, and what the plot was about was going to be the best part of the pitch.
The “Infinite Earth crisis” starts on Sunday. December 8th on Supergirl and is going through the Batwoman’s Monday episode and The Flash on Tuesday. It is the midseason cliffhanger because the programs will be hiatus for the days of celebrations. It will take place this year as part of the midseason series.
