While not as iconic a villain as The Joker or Ra's al Ghul, Hush has proven time and again to be a dangerous enemy to Batman. Now, as teased by a new synopsis for an upcoming episode of Batwoman, Kate Kane may witness firsthand just how menacing Hush can be.
In the synopsis for the episode "Down Down Down," Kate (Ruby Rose) is invited to a party by Bruce Wayne's childhood friend Tommy Elliot (Gabriel Mann), who's throwing a party to celebrate finally succeeding in becoming richer than Bruce. However, things quickly turn sour when Kate and Luke (Camrus Johnson) must track down a stolen weapon from Batman's arsenal, and Batwoman finds herself facing off against a new enemy. As the show will explore how Tommy becomes Hush, this episode may be the first part of the villain's origin story.
To add to the drama, Alice (Rachel Skarsten) not only targets Kate's father and stepmother but also knows a dark secret she taunts Kate with. Batwoman may have her work cut out for her between these two villains, especially given Hush's own personal vendetta against Bruce.
"Down Down Down" will premiere on Oct. 20 on The CW. Check below for the full synopsis:
