Batwoman Season 2 Episode 4 Quotes

Luke: You're not actually going to run him over, right?
Batwoman: And ruin my new paint job?

It seems that the gang known as the False Face Society is showing their entrepreneurial side by making and distributing Snake Bite, known for its dual-pronged injector needles which are said to give a double-whammy dose of fantasy and fright. So more fang for your buck. This trippy two-for-one is part psychedelic mushroom oil, part concentrated fear toxin.
