There’s a strange darkness lurking in the swamps and woods outside Marias. It’s been hinted at by Swamp Thing and Madame Xanadu, and prepared for by the enigmatic Phantom Stranger, but we know very little about it.
I’ve been enjoying this series for a few different reasons, from what I find to be decent writing to some interesting twists on the main characters to adding a few I never thought I’d see in live action (Blue Devil, Madame Xanadu).
Last episode of the Titans ended with a serious cliffhanger, Jason Todd getting captured through a combination of overconfidence and poor planning. To prolong the suspense, this episode ignores that situation entirely, being set roughly five years ago.
The first and only season of Swamp Thing is progressing well, and I’m getting increasingly intrigued by some of the subplots. The cast is good, the stories are making sense so far, and the effects are good.
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 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.
