The end of the second season of Titans is getting closer. I get tearing down to build up, but the team is scattered and really not looking good. Kory lost her ride home, Dick’s in prison, Hank and Dawn split up, and Gar and Conner are being held by Cadmus.
The superhero tv event of the year, and arguably of a lot more than that, begins with Supergirl. The most powerful of the CW heroes is a great place to start off a story that shakes the foundations of the CW Arrowverse. After all the lead-ins, hints, and rumors, the event opens with LaMonica Garrett,…
The previous episode ended with one of Dick Grayson’s many bad decisions in this series. Now he’s in prison (apparently we skipped the arraignment, trial, or any of those pesky details), after pleading guilty and being sentenced to seven years.
The ninth episode of Titans is called “Atonement.” That title really doesn’t seem to fit. Something along the lines of “Things Fall Completely Apart” might have worked better. There are a lot of puzzling choices in this episode, and I have to admit, I don’t follow some of the characters’ motivations at all.
“Jericho” might be the most uneven episode of Titans so far. There were some brilliant scenes, and some things that made no sense. We get to see the end of the tragedy that broke the Titans, but we knew at least the broad strokes of this already. There was an amazing fight scene, and one I don’t think they did really well on.
The Titans’ second season is about at the halfway point, and there’s a lot left to do. They’ve done nothing effective against their big foe, Deathstroke, most of them haven’t even appeared in costume in the current era, and, even though they’re listed that way in the credits on IMDB this week, Raven and Beast Boy/Changeling (better name, always will be) haven’t taken their code names.
Last episode, “Deathstroke,” ended with Jason Todd possibly falling to his doom. Suspense is a good story-telling technique, and the folks working for the DC Universe shows know this. So, instead of resolving this almost literal cliffhanger, “Conner” focuses on Superboy.
