A new synopsis for “A Lesson from Professor Pyg,” the fifth episode of Batwoman, has been posted by The CW. The episode is supposed to introduce the show’s take on yet another infamous Batman villain, Professor Pyg, as the title suggests. It’s unclear whether the version of the character will be Lazlo Valentin, the man who wears the mantle in DC Comics, or someone else entirely, but given Batwoman’s track record in its third season, it’s likely to be a reinvention — one who causes trouble at a key dinner between Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie), Jada Jet (Robin Givens), and the rest of the gang.
The summary for “A Lesson From Professor Pyg”!
COME AND GET IT – Ryan (Javicia Leslie) invites Sophie (Meagan Tandy) to dinner at Jada’s (Robin Givens) to do reconnaissance on what her estranged mother knows about Wayne Enterprises, but the evening takes an unexpected turn when an unwelcome guest shows up. Ryan sees another side of Marquis (Nick Creegan) and her mother as the scary evening progresses. Rachel Skarsten, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson, and Victoria Cartagena also star. Ebony Gilbert and Caroline Dries wrote the episode, which was directed by David Ramsey.
In an interview immediately after the Season 2 finale, Leslie described the Batman villains narrative as
“So freaking epic,” Like literally a lot of your epic Batman villains, we have all of their weapons and they’ve all been released into the river and people are going to find [them] and you’re going to find the effects that these weapons have on these normal Gotham citizens and then becoming like these supervillains, and it’s just going to be so much fun. I can’t wait! I’m excited because we’re about to start shooting season 3 and I can’t wait to read the scripts and to see where it goes.”
