Batwoman fans know that during the Season 2 finale Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) was thrown a huge curveball when she found out that her biological mother is alive. Ryan grew up believing that her mother had died during childbirth. There's totally no coincidence that Robin's new character has a child out somewhere out there when Ryan will be trying to find her birth mother. Fans can expect to see the mother twist taking center stage during Season 3.

Sierra stepped down from being the mayor after she found out that she was going to be exposed for having a secret affair with Sheriff Keller (Martin Cummins). She told the town that she was stepping down from her position to spend more time with her family. Audiences haven't seen Sierra since Season 3 of Riverside, but she recently made her return to find her daughter. In Season 5, Episode 15, Josie went missing during her tour after she learned that her father, Myles McCoy (Reese Alexander), had passed away.

Sierra ended up tracking down Josie at the Five Seasons and was there to comfort her baby girl. When that episode came to an end, it fueled the rumors that a Riverdale spinoff starring Josie and the Pussycats is on the way, which Robin would totally have to be part of. But it remains to be seen if Robin will make her return to Riverdale for the potential spinoff, as she'll be a little busy with her new superhero show gig.

In the meantime, you can catch Robin on Season 3 of Batwoman. Season 3 of Batwoman airs on Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. EST on the CW.
