Not sure how many people are watching this, but I gotta say I’m very intrigued by that big reveal in the season finale. Once I realized that we never actually found out the assigned gender of Thomas and Martha’s baby beforehand, I thought there was a real chance they’d throw us a curveball and have it be a girl, and lo and behold…
I could see this playing out in a number of ways. Maybe in this universe, Bruce will be born later and just has an older sister this time around? I know there have been a couple stories where he’s had a brother in Thomas Wayne Jr., but I can’t ever recall him having a sister. If that ends up being the case, will this be a completely new character or a reworked one? Perhaps it’s Helena Wayne, or maybe in this universe, Bruce and Kate Kane (Wayne) are siblings instead of cousins
And then there’s the possibility that this isn’t Batman’s sister, but rather the future Batwoman (just not Kate). Perhaps she’ll still be an only child, have a name like Bryce and go on to experience a similar life that Bruce has had in countless universes. Or maybe the writers have something else entirely planned
Whatever ends up happening, this is gonna end up being a pretty huge shift to the typical Batman mythos. While I’m sure some people are already derailing against it, considering Pennyworth had already established itself as pretty different from what we’re used to seeing from DC, I remain very much open to big changes like this. I’m really hoping we get an announcement of a 3rd season soon, because I really wanna see what they have in store not only for Thomas and Martha’s daughter, but also for the battle for London. Overall, this was a great way to cap off a strong season!
