Nicole Kang on Stepping into the Role of Poison Ivy in ‘Batwoman’

Batwoman fans were shocked, yet excited, when the beloved Mary Hamilton, heart of the Bat-team, found herself transformed into the newest version of Poison Ivy. Before the season hiatus, Mary went Thelma and Louise with her step-sister Alice to evade the rest of the Bat-Team, but now as the season has returned, she’s stepping back into Gotham with bolder intentions to assert her power and never feel vulnerable again.

Will the Bat-Team be able to save her, or is Mary lost forever to the Plant Side?
