No matter how many allies Alice has throughout the series, she won’t be with them for long. Interestingly, his oldest ally was a member of the Bat team. Alice, who has been betrayed by others for most of her life, can’t trust anyone, that’s where this sentence comes from.
Tommy Elliott thinks the only people he can trust are his money launderers, but Alice even denies that. Of course, by season 3, Alice begins to trust one of the most unexpected people: Mary Hamilton.
Alice Opens Up About Using Batwoman
“…I need reinforcements, frankly. I mean, I need someone to stand behind me so the bullets don’t hit me in the face.”
Alice knew that neither version of Batwoman, her sister Kate Kane and later Ryan Wilder, held her very high. However, sometimes Alice needs skills that she knows other criminals won’t provide or can’t trust. At times like this, he turns to Batwoman.
In season 2, she turns to Ryan for help when Alice’s ex Ocean and Ryan’s ex Angelique are captured by too many guards for Alice to handle on her own. Alice knew Ryan wouldn’t pass up the chance to save someone who meant so much to her, but she also knew Ryan wouldn’t trust her to do her part, so she joked about the situation. Emergency call Ryan. Go to work.
Alice has a surprising choice of dance partners.
“I didn’t know who to go to prom with, so I took C4 with me.”
in the first episode BatmanAlice wasn’t the most likable character. Apparently, she’s just trying to cause confusion for everyone around her, without thinking about anyone but herself. It’s only when her backstory develops that the public can sympathize with her.
Perhaps one of his more chaotic moments was wielding a C4 rather than his usual penchant for knives and good old-fashioned melee. The fact that Alice is willing to use dynamite shows how far she will go when it comes to bringing Gotham to its knees.
Alice gives a new version of an old saying
“They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but I think the portions are big enough to separate.”
If there’s one thing Alice is consistent with, it’s that she makes people uncomfortable by citing her namesake, and makes her own take on the clichés being said. This is one of the latter cases.
Alice may have trust issues, but she is very willing to work with anyone she wants in the name of getting what she wants, hence the “split” revenge plan. Alice is always ready for a double betrayal later.
Alice is not easily surprised.
“I found my mom’s head in the fridge, so if you want to surprise me, you better try harder.”
Jealous of Safia’s interest in Alice, Tatiana tries to surprise her with her bad news. Tatiana tells Alice that the ocean could be her soulmate, just after Alice pierces his heart at Safia’s orders. As far as Alice is concerned, she doesn’t even remember her experiences with the ocean, so while Tatiana’s words may interest her, they don’t create the impression Tatiana wants.
All that happens is that Alice becomes more disturbed that Tatiana is in her way. Because of her childhood trauma, Alice would hardly have been surprised as an adult.
Alice holds a grudge against her sisters.
“You are obviously the only child. Otherwise you will know that our dear brother is most likely to betray us.
She never gave up the idea of Kate betraying Alice, even though the two were equally good. After all, even if they were in the same house, Kate couldn’t find her. Kate abandoned her. If Kate is interested in helping her, Kate would prefer to see Alice locked up in Arkham rather than have a relationship with her, something Alice will never forget, no matter how much she wants a sister.
Of course, he also sees Mary as his sister, which is why he pays attention to her in the first place. He sees Mary as his replacement and doesn’t like her. However, in season 3, Mary is the whole family that Alice feels she has left, and the bond of the two.
Alice has a dangerous plan for herself
‘What do you get for a girl who has everything? answer. You made her so angry that she sent her most skilled killers to you.
Alice never gives up halfway. No matter how dangerous her plans were, she was involved. It’s not that he’s reckless, it’s just that he’s so confident in his abilities.
That’s exactly what happened when he decided to catch Safiyah’s gaze and kidnap her. Alice doesn’t know how to get back to the secret island, so she has no other choice when it comes to talking to the “queen.” In this case, Alice may be dead, but she’s pretty sure she can easily find a way out of this impossible situation.
Alice is not a patient woman
“Now help me not to kill you.”
It’s no secret that Alice isn’t the most patient person in Gotham City. You can have a detailed plan, but you can also quickly pivot and move from one plan to another if you run into trouble. She’s really impatient with people who don’t give her the information she wants, or who work for her but can’t get their job done.
Alice is likely to throw a knife at someone in the middle of a conversation, just as she lets the other person finish.
Alice becomes vulnerable
‘You don’t want to be alone. I know this feeling. You won’t, I’ll accompany you through the whole perversion of Mary.
When Alice tried to reconnect with Kate in season 1 and then tried to make sure she was the one who killed Kate, Alice found in Mary the sister she always wanted after Mary was infected with poison ivy. With full support, the two break free from the shackles of Gotham society and embark on a small adventure.
When Mary is the only one who can perform medical procedures to prevent Batgirl from following Alice, Mary reveals that she is afraid that Alice will leave at the first opportunity. It was then that Alice realized how much the two cared about her and promised not to leave her. Despite their dysfunctional pasts, they have finally found the family they long for.
Alice admits that she is afraid of losing Mary.
“You are finally dead!”
Alice worries when Mary gets a chance to see poison ivy. She wants to be with Mary as a backup, ready to fight Pamela if necessary, but Mary won’t let her. Mary misinterprets Alice’s fears as jealousy that Mary has another villain leading her, but Alice reveals that she is actually afraid that Pamela will kill Mary.
Alice’s fears aren’t far off, but this is the first time she’s admitted that she’s afraid of losing Mary, not just her own life. Like her promise to never leave when Mary transforms, Alice can feel vulnerable again to a sister she doesn’t know she wants.
Batwoman: 10 Best Quotes From Alice
No matter how many allies Alice has throughout the series, she never sticks with them for long. Her longest allies have actually been the members of the Bat-team, funnily enough. Alice, who has spent most of her life being betrayed by others cannot allow herself to trust anyone, which is where this quote comes in.
Tommy Eliot believes the only one to be trusted is his money launderer, but Alice even refutes that. Of course, by Season 3, Alice does start to trust one of the most unexpected people: Mary Hamilton.
Alice Is Up Front About Using Batwoman
“… Quite frankly, I need backup. By which I mean I need someone to stand behind me so bullets don’t hit my visage.”
Alice knows that both versions of Batwoman, her sister Kate Kane and later, Ryan Wilder, don’t think very highly of her. Sometimes, however, Alice needs skills that she knows other criminals aren’t going to provide – or that she can’t trust them to provide. In those times, she turns to Batwoman.
In Season 2, when Alice’s ex Ocean and Ryan’s ex Angelique are both being held captive with too many guards for Alice to take on alone, she turns to Ryan for help. Alice knows that Ryan isn’t going to pass up the chance to save someone who means so much to her, but she also knows that Ryan isn’t going to trust her to pull her weight, so she makes a quip about the situation instead of appealing to Ryan seriously. It works.
Alice Has A Surprising Choice Of Dance Partner
“I didn’t know who to bring to the dance, so I brought C4.”
In the early episodes of Batwoman, Alice isn’t exactly the most likable of characters. She is seemingly there just to cause chaos for everyone around her with no thoughts for anyone other than herself. It’s not until her backstory is fleshed out much later that the audience can come to sympathize with her.
One of her most chaotic moments, however, might be handling C4 instead of her usual penchant for knives and good, old fashioned, hand-to-hand combat. Alice being willing to use explosives shows just how far she’s willing to go when it comes to bringing Gotham to its knees.
Alice Gives A New Take On An Old Saying
“They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but I think the portions are big enough for us to split.”
If there’s one thing that’s consistent about Alice, it’s that she’ll quote her namesake to make people uncomfortable and put her own twist on cliched sayings. This is one such instance of the latter.
Alice might have trust issues, but she’s more than willing to team up with just about anyone who wants to in the name of getting what she wants, hence the “splitting the portions” in a revenge scheme. Alice is always ready with a double-cross at a later date.
Alice Isn’t Easily Surprised
“I found my mother’s head in a freezer, so if you’re trying to shock me, you’re gonna have to do a little better than that.”
Tatiana, jealous of Safiyah’s interest in Alice, tries to get an edge over her by surprising her with some pretty awful news. Tatiana is the one to tell Alice that Ocean just might be her soulmate – right after Alice stabbed him through the heart on Safiyah’s orders. Alice, for her part, doesn’t even remember her experiences with Ocean, so while Tatiana’s words might interest her, they don’t make the impression Tatiana wants.
All that happens is that Alice gets more annoyed by Tatiana getting in her way. Her traumatic childhood means that very little is capable of surprising Alice as an adult.
Alice Holds A Grudge Against Her Sisters
“Clearly, you are an only child. Otherwise, you would know our dear siblings are the ones most predisposed to betray us.”
The idea that Kate betrayed Alice is not something that she ever lets go of, even when the two are briefly on good terms. Kate, after all, couldn’t find her even when they were in the same house. Kate gave up on her. By the time Kate is interested in helping her, Kate is more willing to see Alice locked up in Arkham than she is to build a relationship with her, and that’s something Alice never forgets, no matter how much she wants a sister.
Of course, she also sees Mary as her sister of sorts, which is why she initially targets her. She sees Mary as her replacement and doesn’t like it. By season 3, however, Mary is all the family Alice feels she has left, and the two bond.
Alice Creates Dangerous Plans For Herself
“What do you get the girl who has everything? Answer. You get her so pissed off she sends her most skilled killer to fetch you.”
Alice never does anything by halves. She is all in on any situation, no matter how dangerous her plan might be. It’s not that she’s reckless, but that she’s that confident in her own abilities.
That’s exactly the case when she decides to get Safiyah’s attention and get herself kidnapped. Alice doesn’t know how to get back to the secret island, so she doesn’t see another option when it comes to getting to chat with the “queen.” It’s a situation that could have seen Alice end up dead, but she was so sure she could easily find her way out of an impossible situation.
Alice Is Not A Patient Woman
“Help me not to kill you right now.”
It’s no secret that Alice isn’t the most patient person in Gotham. She might make painstakingly detailed plans, but she also pivots quickly and moves one to the next plan if she has trouble. She really doesn’t have the patience for people who don’t give her the information she wants, or for those working for her who can’t get their part of the job done.
Alice is just as likely to throw a knife at someone mid-conversation as she is to let the other person finish talking.
Alice Gets Vulnerable
“You don’t want to be alone. I know the feeling. You won’t be. I’m going to stay with you through this whole Mary-metamorphosis.”
While Alice spends season 1 trying to reconnect with Kate – and then trying to make sure she’s the one who gets to kill Kate – Alice finds the sister she’s always wanted in Mary after Mary is infected by Poison Ivy. The two fully support one another being free of the confines of Gotham society and go on a bit of an adventure.
When Mary is the only one who can perform a medical procedure to make sure Batwoman can’t track Alice, Mary reveals she’s afraid that Alice is going to leave the first chance she gets. It’s then that Alice realizes how much the two of them really care about one another, and she promises not to leave her. They’ve finally found the family they’ve craved in one another, despite the dysfunctional past they share.
Alice Admits She’s Scared Of Losing Mary
“You ending up dead!”
When Mary gets the chance to meet Poison Ivy, Alice is apprehensive. She wants to go with Mary as backup, ready to fight Pamela if necessary, but Mary won’t let her. Mary misreads Alice’s apprehension as jealousy that Mary might have another villain to mentor her, but Alice reveals that she’s really afraid that Pamela is going to kill Mary.
Alice’s fear isn’t far off, but it’s the first time she’s admitted to being afraid of losing Mary instead of just losing her own life. Just like her promising never to leave Mary while she transforms, Alice is able to be vulnerable with the sister she didn’t know she wanted again.
