The CW's Batwoman was, without a doubt, one of the most highly-anticipated premieres of the year. Not only did it mark the beginning of the fifth show in the network's beloved Arrowverse, it was also the first in that shared universe to focus on a member of DC's coveted Bat-Family and marked the first ever live action adaptation of the Kate Kane character.

While the character already made her debut in 2018's edition of the annual Arrowverse crossover, Elseworlds, the Batwoman pilot episode took us back to the beginning of Kate's story, allowing fans to get acquainted with her and discover what ultimately led her down the path of heroism.

In that regard, the episode was a huge success, solidifying Batwoman as another strong part of the ever-growing Arrowverse. However, given its ties to the Batman character, it's no surprise that the series premiere had more than a few surprises in store for devoted comic book fans.

With that in mind, let's jump right into the pilot and take a look at any Easter Eggs and/or references you might have missed.
