You may have noticed that Dougray Scott, who plays Commander Jacob Kane, wasn’t in the last two episodes of the season.
“Having Dougray Scott as Jacob Kane on Batwoman was incredibly special for all of us,” Caroline said in a statement, via EW. “An actor with his pedigree and reputation elevates any project, and he had great chemistry with his castmates. We loved telling Commander Kane’s story for the last two seasons, and we will always leave the door open to have him return. We wish him the very best!”
“The character obviously had a really intense story line,” she added about Jacob Kane. “The story was just lending itself of wrapping up the Crows because we took such a hard stance against police brutality this season and really used the Crows to represent the metaphor of that. For us, the story could really only end to Ryan’s satisfaction [if the Crows were] shut down completely. To us, there was no version of the Crows that could exist that felt okay; that felt like a compromise.”
“Once we kind of made that decision – and obviously Kate isn’t staying on the show – this character of Jacob had sort of run its course, for better or for worse, through that story line. So it worked out that it was mutual [with Scott],” Caroline said. “We ended up being able to really write to a good ending for Jacob, just kind of knowing in advance that’s what we were going to do. I’m very pleased with how that story line worked out for him. It allowed us to give Dougray some really rich stuff toward the end.”
Also leaving after season two is Wallis Day, who portrayed Kate Kane. Kate is off to find her missing cousin Bruce Wayne.
