She's vengeance. She's the night. She's Batwoman! 

EW is debuting exclusive new photos from 

's season 2 premiere (Jan. 17 at 8 p.m.), which will introduce Javicia Leslie as the new Batwoman. 

When the CW superhero drama returns, Leslie's Ryan Wilder, a homeless martial arts expert, stumbles upon the Batsuit after original Batwoman

. After years of feeling powerless within Gotham City's corrupt system, she views the cowl as a way to regain her power so she  takes it out for a spin — which eventually leads to the moment depicted in the adjacent image. 


And here's the reverse shot of the scene in the previous slide: Luke Fox (

) and coming face to face with Ryan for the first time. 


Amid all of the new Batwoman news, it's easy to forget that season 1 ended on a major cliffhanger: Alice (Rachel Skarsten) gave Tommy Elliot/Hush a new face so that he could infiltrate Wayne Tower as and steal the Kryptonite shard, which is the only thing that can penetrate the otherwise impenetrable Batsuit. Here, Hush-as-Bruce Wayne plays with a dangerous-looking Bat-gadget. 


Luke is reunited with a man he thinks is Bruce Wayne. 



Ryan lives in a van, and her plant is her most prized possession. Coincidentally, Leslie is a huge plant person in real life (one of the many ways she relates to Ryan). During the show's DC FanDome panel, Leslie revealed that she actually names her plants.


Head Crow Jacob Kane (Douray Scott

) declared war on Batwoman at the end of season 1. So why did he turn the Bat-Signal back on? 


Based on Agent Sophie Moore's (Meagan Tandy

) reaction, getting bad news in a letter doesn't make it hurt any less.


The list of people who want to pull a gun on Alice (Rachel Skarsten) — who looks particularly distraught — is probably very long. 


Here's another look at the Batmobile, which was revealed in the most recent promo. 

Batwoman returns Sunday, Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
