The third season of the Titans has been a hell of a ride so far, and it’s still getting interesting and odd. With two character deaths and a resurrection, it’s safe to say there have been surprising twists and turns.
The Titans, a live action series that started on the now-defunct DC Universe and migrated to HBO Max along with Doom Patrol, returns for their third season. Season two ended with the tragic (and poorly written) death of Donna Troy, AKA Wonder Girl.
The Titans end their second season with a lot of death, chaos, and destruction. Long-time fans will probably not care for this, which brings an end to their sub-par adaptation of the classic Judas Contract storyline.
With only two more episodes to go this season, the Titans need to get themselves together. They’re split off into small groups, scattered all over, and several of them aren’t in great shape.
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.
Two episodes ago, Deathstroke captured Jason Todd, the second Robin. Last episode was almost entirely a flashback, telling about the Titans’ tragedy several years ago that led to the death of Aqualad (Garth, we barely knew ye) and the start of something very dark for the young heroes. Now, we’re back in the present.
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 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.
Last season of Titans ended in a major cliffhanger. Trigon made it to Earth, Dick fell under his sway, and his most powerful allies are trapped outside the cloaking/force field.
After the surprise appearance of Robin II, Jason Todd, at the end of last episode, he and Dick spend some time together in the episode appropriately enough called, “Jason Todd.”
