TITANS, S2 Ep 12 Reaction Thread - 🚨 WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD 🚨

We finally got a little more backstory on Rose and got the big Ravager reveal! Although, with a freshly broken heart and an emotionally manipulative father, who knows who Rose will be fighting in next week’s finale.

And speaking of broken hearts, what is Hawk doing? Arena fighting, relapse, and selling his suit to a kid? Sounds like Hank needs a good reality check.

And, while we still are on Nightwing watch, we got a little teaser of Dick viewing the suit for the first time! WOOT! We’re almost there, folks!

If you haven’t watched episode 12 yet, make sure you do then come back here and let us know what you thought!

Just wow… this is probably one of my favorite episodes in the whole series. Honestly I loved practically every minute of it. It had a great mix of serious, emotional and comedic moments.
The choice of music when Hank fought in the cage at the beginning was hilarious :laughing: and the music when Deathstroke was training with his daughter was BADASS. The writing was really strong with this episode imo and really revved up towards the finale in a great way.

How you gonna write a scene that is both hilarious and sad with this dude. :cry: Also the fact that Hank was so messed up on drugs that he forgot he sold his suit was a great reveal. :sob:
Hank better pay him back or make him a side-kick! :rage:

The other Titans should take a page from Jericho’s book when a friend lies to them.

Gar’s officially joined the criminal ranks of Kory, Dick and Conner. I’m very curious how/if they’ll resolve the issue of them all being wanted criminals. BTW Dick’s totally fired if he hasn’t been already lol

Okay. That was a mix of very good and kinda bad, like so much of the Titans. Reactions in no particular order:

  1. The Titans timeline is completely messed up. When did the Titans break up? When did Slade go into hiding? Why did everyone think he was dead? It’s all a big opaque kludge with bits and pieces of different storylines bolted together into a ramshackle construction.

  2. The stuff with Gar is effective but over the top.

  3. Poor Jason. Red Hood transformation on the way?

  4. Hank’s story also overdone, but Faux Hawk was funny as all get out.

  5. Evidently, there’s lots of Titans fans around (see points one and four).

  6. Loved Stu and Lily, the vigilante tailors. Makes a lot of sense. But the “Master Wayne” stuff is just weird with an American accent. “Mister Wayne” would have been much better.

  7. Okay, so this world’s Bruce moves in creepy ways, even for Batman. “Stu, my son will be breaking out of max in Nevada in a bit. Get that suit ready. I know he burned the other one. Yes, yes, I know Stu. He’s always been emotional that way. Yes, I know you would never be like that. Just have it ready and I will triple your fee. That’s what I thought. I knew I could count on you and Lily. I will have Alfred get you a few last minute tweaks and the latest measurements.”

@rdoliver30 Titans broke up 5 years ago after Jericho died.

@rdoliver30 I thought Slade went into hiding right after Jericho’s ‘death’ but this episode showed he was still active 3 years ago when Rose met him 3 weeks after the car accident 3 years ago so Slade went into hiding sometime after 3 years ago. But I’m now wondering ‘why’ Slade went into hiding :thinking:

@rdoliver30 I assumed the part of everyone thinking Deathstroke was dead because Dick lied to them about that since in Season 2 Episode 3 after seeing the footage of Deathstroke Donna looked specifically at Dick (and Dick just kept pretending that he thought he was dead too since he’s a pathological liar). So either it was another lie from Dick or Deathstroke completely disappeared for about 3 years in between him meeting Rose and the current time-line so it was assumed/rumored that Slade was dead.

Reposting from another thread:

Rachel’s indifference upon hearing that Gar was in trouble was interesting.

Nice tease with the Nightwing suit. It reminded me of the scene in the Incredibles when they got their new suits.

Jason acts like he doesn’t care, but he will show up.

Conner is a wildcard here, as we’ve seen nothing about him so far since his capture.

Cadmus using Gar in public seemed a bit pointless, as he can no longer be used as a weapon against the Titans, unless they are using him as a lure in a trap, but they could have done that without weaponizing him.

Anyway, we’ll see how this all ties in together next week. Maybe it’ll be a double length episode.

I hope Jason shows up. I need a BinGo!

I kinda wonder how they’ll cure him and Gar being brainwashed. Most likely Rachel using her powers like how she ‘healed’ Kory last season. They got some kind of psychological control over them considering the brain surgery stuff we saw with Gar so I don’t think just talking to him will shut that off. We’ll see what happens.

How would that prevent Cadmus from using Gar as a weapon against the Titans? Cadmus is evil but not dumb enough to keep testing Gar’s powers against their own staff so they were testing their control more just on random people. None of the Titans even knew Dick was in jail this whole time so they probably don’t know what happened at that coffee shop with everything going on right now. But yeah we’ll just see what exactly this ‘Phase 2’ they mentioned is about.

Can we have a season where Gar’s not the punching bag? Rose’s costume looks so cool. Please have Jason Todd for next season. And that reveal of who actually makes Batman’s and Robin’s suit was interesting especially how they were tick with him burning the suit., can’t wait to finally see Nightwing.

I would think that Gar’s greatest value to Cadmus was as a sleeper agent. The Titans now know that he’s been weaponized and is under Cadmus’ control. so he won’t catch them off guard. Sure. he’s still dangerous, but I think Kori, Donna or Rachel could easily take him down. For the non supers it would harder, but I think they could do it too.

Anyway, as we saw at the end of the episode, once Mercy learned that Donna and Dawn knew the truth, she had to speed up her schedule. But by going public with Gar. didn’t she already blow project Beast Boy’s cover?

Switching gears, I found the Hank portion kind of meh. Yeah, he hit rock bottom.

Anyway, I don’t see how this can all be tied in together in just 45 minutes, which is why I think we could get an extended finale. Or maybe not, maybe we’ll get stuck with multiple cliff hangers and have to wait another year, just to get a quickie cleanup, like we did with the Raven vs. Trigon episode.

@TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne Oh damn, yeah. I somehow remembered the guy mention Cadmus did surgery to Conner and Gar but forgot he told that to Kory and Dawn when they interrogated him lol my bad.

I liked this episode a lot! I liked getting all these different story lines as they slowly converge. Poor Gar and poor Hank, though. Rachel not caring about Gar threw me a little, because of how close they were last season. But I guess with the death dreams she’s been having it makes sense she would be that concerned for Dick. Seeing Jericho actually in Slade’s mind was great too. Hopefully they find a way to get him out.

I hope Jason comes back as Robin. I feel like that is way too quick a transition to Red Hood. (Though, that mean we would get Tim faster, but still…) I am liking Curran Walters acting a lot. I’m not usually a big Jason Todd fan, but I’ve been rooting for him all season.

Everyone got to meet Bruce/Batman before he did even though he wanted to since Season 1 lol
Most of Gar’s plot line this season is getting screwed someway or another. :weary:
But yeah hopefully he gets something more next season.
