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.”
After taking an episode to introduce the Doom Patrol ahead of their own series (a strange choice with so few shows in the season), the Titans’ fifth episode, “Together,” finally does have the four main characters spending time together.
