Trivia

As Kate sets out for the mission at hand, she begins packing numerous pieces of equipment. As she does so, she turns to Luke and asks whether Bruce has any night-vision goggles. Luke's response is brief yet emphatic: "Batman doesn't do googles," a direct nod towards Justice League (2017). It isn't the first time that Batman has been given goggles. In the dystopian future witnessed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Batman wears a pair as he traverses a desert wasteland. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, once again we see Alice cutting skin from a cadaver (as seen in S1 E4) and we see it bleed. One of the first things a medical examiner is going to do, long before putting a body into the freezer, is drain the blood. See more »

Quotes

Alice: You're not asking the right questions, Kate. What is my evil plan? Who am I targeting next? How am i going to do it? When you really need to be asking why? Why am I like this?

Mine Is a Long and a Sad Tale
4 November 2019 | by NDbportmanfanSee all my reviews

I would like to know if someone else directed the flashback scenes because unlike the present, those were enjoyable to watch all the way through. The present continues to be a weird mess. I would appreciate the Alice character more if a good half her dialogue wasn't from Wonderland quotes. It is episode 5 and it is getting stale. The worst scene would have to be from the step mother and step daughter. For the dark past that is being told neither character was really reacting in a way that made sense. Other scenes were more unnecessarily comedic when the subject matter was far more dark. Characters can grow before are eyes when they deal with tragedy, this will never happen if the writers keep trying to throw dark themes at us but continually make characters oblivious to the stakes.

5/10
