Sophie has rather a lot on her plate, to say the least. Not solely does she have a husband and her ex very a lot again in her life, however she’s additionally the right-hand of Jacob, Kate’s father. Being in the midst of each Kate and Jacob goes to trigger some rigidity. Meagan revealed there will probably be extra flashbacks to army college and can peel again the layers of what actually occurred between Sophie and Kate.
In the final episode, there was that devastating scene the place Sophie tells Kate that she wants to maneuver on. In the aftermath of that second, the place do Sophie and Kate go from right here?
Meagan Tandy: I can say that Sophie is most undoubtedly going to be exploring whether or not or not she really actually meant to say what she mentioned. The factor is, Kate is again in Gotham now. She hasn’t seen her since their break up and so she’s being compelled into having to determine this out. Both of them will now need to take that little piece of data on the finish of her saying there isn’t a us after which hopefully they’ll get to discover and are available collectively in the long run.
I felt like throughout that scene there was a bit of bit extra behind her pushing Kate away as a result of it pained her to say these issues. I’m wondering if there’s another excuse why she needed to say these issues.
Meagan Tandy: The factor with Sophie is there’s a lot extra to why they needed to break up up again in army college and perhaps Kate is aware of the complete fact of it or perhaps she doesn’t. I feel Sophie is having to cope with that realizing that Kate could not know the true story as to why they needed to break up up and mainly saying there isn’t a us. It’s additionally representing the issues and the choices that she needed to make throughout army college. It’s undoubtedly very heavy.
There’s loads of historical past between them, and we’ve gotten a bit of little bit of the flashbacks. Will we see extra flashbacks going ahead?
Meagan Tandy: Yes. You guys are going to get much more flashbacks. In truth, I’m extraordinarily excited for the flashbacks. They clarify rather a lot. I feel individuals will actually be capable of grasp what occurred throughout army college and why that call was made when it was made.
Are we going to see the connection between Sophie and her husband? What are you able to say about that dynamic?
Meagan Tandy: Because my husband and I each work on the Crows, individuals will certainly be capable of see us collectively in our office. However, whether or not or not it’s probably the most wholesome of relationships, you’ll simply need to tune in and see.
Sophie has a extremely attention-grabbing relationship with Kate’s dad. She works for him and it’s only a very sophisticated relationship, particularly with Kate concerned as effectively. What are you able to say about Sophie being in the midst of Kate and her father?
Meagan Tandy: It’s undoubtedly a really attention-grabbing dynamic as a result of Jacob completely loves Kate. He loves every thing that she stands for and does. However, she didn’t do precisely what he would’ve wished her to do again in army college and Sophie did. It undoubtedly simply strengthened a bond. He will get to dwell out his dream of getting Kate proper there by his aspect. He will get to dwell via that via me. That dynamic undoubtedly obtained strengthened after that call was made in army college. But sure, it’s undoubtedly a really attention-grabbing dynamic for certain.
I really feel like in a way Sophie is nearly the daughter he misplaced. She is available in and it’s this form of good state of affairs for him. Speaking of Alice and Beth, the primary episode featured Sophie getting kidnapped and now there’s the reveal that she is definitely Beth. Going ahead, there may be this actually intense dynamic that Kate has with Alice. Will Sophie become involved with that storyline because it continues to get increasingly intense?
Meagan Tandy: The attention-grabbing factor with episode 2 is that is the primary time that Kate was really having to say to Sophie, “Hey, I think Alice is Beth.” The factor is, Sophie will not be fully on board at first as a result of the woman simply kidnapped her so she’s pondering there’s no method that this may very well be Beth. And so Sophie goes to attempt to become involved and mainly simply attempt to see if this really is a real assertion. I feel after some time she begins to imagine Kate and now it’s only a matter of attempting to persuade Jacob that perhaps that is Beth. She goes to attempt to assist her in figuring it out. But I imply it’s undoubtedly nonetheless a bit of awkward as a result of she did simply kidnap her.
Now that Sophie’s going to be actively looking for out solutions for herself and to assist Kate, what are you able to tease about their working relationship? Despite the romantic previous, they nonetheless must work collectively. How is that going to evolve, particularly with the romantic facet nonetheless looming over them?
Meagan Tandy: It’s undoubtedly going to be sophisticated for Sophie as a result of she’s proper beneath Jacob’s hand on the Crows and Jacob is tremendous anti-Batman and Batwoman, and he’s not even satisfied that Alice is Beth. So there’s that facet and that’s your boss. Then there’s Kate, the girl who’s again in her life who she could or could not nonetheless have emotions for and he or she’s attempting to persuade her that Alice is Beth. Sophie’s having to one way or the other strive to determine the best way to assist Kate but in addition not make Jacob mad. Jacob’s ache is unquestionably going to create a bit of little bit of a tough, sophisticated work relationship between the three of them.
What it’s been like so that you can discover the character of Sophie and dive into this universe?
Meagan Tandy: Just on the Batman aspect of it, I used to be a fully large Batman fan and being part of this world of Gotham has actually simply been such a beautiful, thrilling privilege to be part of. Exploring Sophie particularly, it’s been fairly eye-opening and simply superb general as a result of what I’m attempting to ensure that lots of people know is that Sophie isn’t just like some character within the DC world and on this present, this can be a actual human story. Having the privilege to discover Sophie going via her feelings, going via her problems, it’s been simply actually, actually touching for me personally. Almost day by day, I’m like emotional over these things that I’ve to learn for her as a result of it’s simply so actual. I’m in all probability a bit of too near Sophie, actually, however I like her a lot and it’s been a lot enjoyable to discover this character.
