The third season of Titans has been ambitious, to say the very least. They’ve crammed in several major stories from various Batman comics and added some other simmering plots as well. The team has lost members, gotten a few back, and is handily losing the war for the hearts and minds of Gotham to Jonathan Crane and his hypnotized and drugged lackey, Jason Todd.
Gotham is not an easy city to live in. I’m really not sure why anyone does. So far this season, we’ve seen the deaths of two heroes, the resurrection of one, another attempt suicide, another resurrection, and the Titans outplayed at almost every turn. Now Crane is on the offense, the team is taking hit after hit, and even for Gotham, things are looking bleak. Very little gets better in “Troubled Water.”
By this point, the Titans might well be wishing they’d stayed in San Francisco. Jason died and came back as the villainous Red Hood, Hawk died, Dove left, and Rachel and Donna still haven’t shown up this season. Gotham is not a good place for anyone, really.
Gotham City has not been good for the Titans. Jason Todd returned here after his time on the team, got killed, came back, and is now the villainous Red Hood. The team came in the aftermath, and Hawk was killed, Dove leaving the team in grief.
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 have moved to Gotham, the Red Hood is on the loose, and Hawk is dead. The team has a lot of problems facing them, and for some reason or other, they split up to deal with them.
ason, like in the comics, came back to life (we still don’t know how), became the Red Hood, and began operating as a flat-out supervillain. Worse, a smart supervillain, trained by one of the world’s greatest tacticians, who knows the Titans inside and out. There’s a lot of trouble coming for the team…
Mostly set in Arkham, we see the early days of Joker and Dr. Quinzel, before she descends into the madness of Harley. It’s a new and different take on the start of their story, and some early glimpses of some other characters.
One of the things that is really separating Batwoman from the other CW shows is that they are devoting a lot of time to character work and focusing on one major story, the twisted and tragic tale of Alice.
The second half of Harley Quinn’s initial season has been a rocky trip for most of the cast. Where we left off last, Harley finally made it into the Legion of Doom, but she lost her crew and Ivy’s friendship in the process. Ivy herself managed to get in over her head and get captured, and things aren’t looking great for anyone.
