We’ve gotten a lot of hints about a tragedy in the history of the first team of Titans in this universe. We got a lot more hints, but no real details, as the season goes on.
The CW has been doing a good to great job of adapting the DC Universe to live action, depending on the show and/or episode. The majority of the shows are in a shared universe, like the Marvel/Netflix ones were, and they’ve been doing a good job of building a comprehensive world.
The small swamp town of Marias can’t catch a break, and nothing is getting any better. The disease is still out of control, the CDC hasn’t pulled a miracle out of their bag of tricks, and there are strange things happening in the swamps.
With a show as weird as Doom Patrol, you really never know what you’re going to get. Going into the season finale, Alan Tudyk provides a Mr. Nobody voiceover for a rhyming recap of the season.
The season started with the defeat of Trigon and the team both splitting and relocating. Now we see what everyone has been up to, do a three month time jump, and starting setting up for new story.
One thing I’ve noticed with Swamp Thing so far, and many scenes in Titans, is that they are very dark. I don’t mean thematically, although there is a lot of that. I mean at times, it’s hard to actually see what’s going on, like some of the much-complained about night battles on the last season of Game of Thrones.
Doom Patrol has been jumping around in their characters’ histories as the season has been going along, and now we see more of Eric Morden before he had his origin. It’s something of a prelude to the origin we saw in episode one, set in 1946 Chicago.
