I'm with LWaves - if Orwell is Chess's daughter, how could he NOT recognize her? It always seems odd to me that a superhero can just put on a simple eye-mask (or even GLASSES!) and become unrecognizable to the people who are closest to them.

Maybe it was going to be revealed that Fleming hasn't seen his daughter (Orwell) since she was little, so it's a bit more feasible he wouldn't recognize her. He certainly doesn't have the cliche semi-recent picture of the daughter holding some family pet, smiling at the camera, sitting on his desk or as a hologram.

Some of the plot points were pretty lame as well like when Orwell questioned Flemming on the train and he doesn't realise who she is. He's supposed to be really intelligent but he comes off as a bit slow.

Cutting the order is in all likelihood a precursor to canceling it.

Because "NBC cuts THE CAPE" could also just as easily indicate that they cut the series from their line-up... as I already noted.
Just because you're not confused doesn't mean that other people aren't (again, skim some of the comments).

I just read about this and I'm kind of having mixed feelings
With production stopped there will be no chance of any kind of resolution to the story and the chances of it returning are extremely slim with all the bad reviews and bad ratings. This plainly screams cancellation even if they don't announce it yet.
Part of me is disappointed because I was actually liking the show, even though it wasn't brilliant and had several faults, but I felt it had potential. Summer was fine in her role but underused (at least so far). The idea of a cop working with theives was a nice touch but again hadn't been played out much so far.
Another part of me thinks it deserves it because it failed to grasp that potential. It could have been a spin on Batman for TV (and in many ways it was) but it tried to go too light and I felt the humour didn't really work. Some of the plot points were pretty lame as well like when Orwell questioned Flemming on the train and he doesn't realise who she is. He's supposed to be really intelligent but he comes off as a bit slow, especially if she is his daughter as well. I also didn't really feel for Vince. I didn't get his anguish at being torn from his family from either the script or the acting and as this was the main reason behind him becoming The Cape it felt weak.
But, as I say, I was still liking the show. Maybe Summer will finally get a show that lasts next time round.
