As the end of season two approaches, the Doom Patrol is, somehow, managing to get even weirder. This episode sees the return of an old enemy, a new status quo for one of the characters, and a lot of strange events.
Stargirl’s first season is almost over, although season two has been confirmed. It will be airing on the CW, leaving DC Universe, the future of which is very much in doubt.
The third season of Young Justice hits the halfway point as the metahuman trafficking case heats up and the Happy Harbor crew gets a few surprises.
I’m not sure if she’s actually trying to be a better person or just distract herself from the mess of complications that are her feelings for Poison Ivy. Either way, she does indeed find “A Fight Worth Fighting For.”
we get the arrival of another Doom Patrol character from the comics, a really long trip, and the perils of amateur dramatics.
This episode shakes Courtney up, shows the difference between blood and chosen family, confirms something I was afraid of, and sheds more light on the background of one of the so-far minor characters.
we get a lot of attention on Gar Logan, Beast Boy (although I’ll always prefer his Changeling codename) in this episode. We see a recounting of his tragic past, which is even more tragic on Young Justice (impressive, considering he’s still somewhere in his teens).
After a long string of not managing to take responsibility for things she’s done (arguably running headlong from it), Harley is finally getting some self-awareness after the chaos of the “Bachelorette.”
Things are never particularly normal for the Doom Patrol. That should go without saying by this point. But events are getting weirder and potentially more dangerous as the second season hits roughly halfway (they lost an episode due to the coronavirus shut down, as did so many shows).
Events are really picking up steam as so many plotlines crash into each other in this episode. There are questions about allegiance, honesty, the future, and the past, as characters deal with some very wrenching discoveries on many fronts.
