"Batwoman" S01E11 "An Un-Birthday Present": Alice Really, Really Likes Surprises – Sorry, Kate [PREVIEW]

Think that's too much?

Did we mention that other Beth that showed up post-"Crisis"? She's going to be spending time with her, too.

As you're about to see in the following preview clip for "An Un-Birthday Present", Kate's going to have some "birthday surprises" waiting for her – and that's a problem for two reasons.

Kate doesn't like surprises – unfortunately, her Alice does…
