Okay so there's no indication when that flashback (in the most recent Legends episode) Nate has to his college years takes place. Because I have no idea what his age is other than he grew up in the 80s. I could maybe base it off of the actual age of Nick Zano (Nate's actor) but I'm not sure about that. He looks really good for someone who was born in 1978.

Any estimation?

EDIT: So Nate went to college at age 16, and you would need 9 years to get a PhD in History, he'd be around 25 when he graduated. He does not look to be freshly out of college by the time he first appears in the Arrowverse (Legends s2 premiere) so I'd have to say he'd be at least 10 years older, closer to age 38 when the actor filmed Legends' second season.
I don't want to get too complicated, so I'll assume he's 40; closer to the actor's current age. In his college years flashback I'll also assume this was when was just starting out.

I'll go with a "????" in the mid 90s.
Makes sense. For the most part, many of the characters are around the same age as their actors.

It's going to be interesting seeing how the shows handle the long break between seasons. They have to pick up shortly after the finales, but the question is will they try and catch up with real-time at some point? Hopefully, there aren't any contradictions when it comes to the timeline.

So... Kate Kane is gone? :confused: That feels odd.

I hope it's Barbara Gordon that replaces her as the lead.

Imagine if it was Bruce Wayne, ha

Edit: Nevermind. “She’s likeable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the batsuit before her. With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan (fake name) spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today, reformed and sober, Ryan lives in her van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk for an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.”

Interesting.Wonder if this is a character from the comics or an entirely knew comic. Who ever she is, this is a ballsy move for the show.

What are the chances that the new Batwoman is also a lesbian? Seems unlikely,:p.

Sounds like Holly Robinson to me.

I'm kinda hoping they don't go "real time" from here on out (for the most part). It makes the timeline messy at times. No weird or specific time jumps, go by the months or weeks as the story progresses. Naturally.

So hopefully the 7 month time have to prepare for the next seasons gives the writers the opportunity to collaborate and create consistent continuity. (No more of things like Obsidian Platinum not being mentioned elsewhere for whatever reason.)

I don't think any of the shows could start the season with a time jump in order to catch up to real-time. However, I wouldn't be surprised if future episodes have to be stretched out as the shows try to catch up. For example, what we've seen in The Flash with Season 3 & 5.

Oh wait, I have to update Legends and check out Pro Bot's reading order. Bare with me. The last few days have been crazy for me.

It doesn't seem unlikely to me. I can think of a few of ways to justify it:

1. Maybe she's somebody Kate knows. It's very common for LGBTQ folks to flock together. It could be an ex, but doesn't have to be.
(If the leaks are accurate, this seems less likely.)

2. Batwoman has been an out lesbian for a few months now. You don't have to be a lesbian to look up to her, but it doesn't hurt.

3. If the leaked audition is accurate, it sounds like Ryan made off with Kate's suit. Maybe she's a customer at Kate's bar, and that has something to do with Ryan getting her hands on the suit.


Also, I was thinking about how when Batwoman went missing before, a bunch of copycats showed up. Nobody's said when Ruby Rose decided to leave*. If the writers knew early enough, maybe that scene was a subtle way to establish that someone else would want to step into the role.

Or maybe it's a coincidence. It's pretty common for that to happen when a hero dies or disappears.

*I assume the scripts they're rewriting were originally unproduced season 1 episodes.

I was mainly joking, since I know it's just a tv show, and they don't want to drop the shows themes, but that's pretty good justification. We'll just have to see if it holds true.
