SEASON 1 of Titans left us with the revival of Trigon and Raven battling her inner demons. The rest of the unofficial Titans team were left under Trigons hallucinations, Season 2 heads straight in wrapping up the Raven versus her father storyline or at least leaves a few strands open enough to keep audiences wondering if Trigon would eventually take over the world.
With the debut of Episode 2, a new direction is set for the team as Episode 1 served as more of an ending for the previous season’s Trigon plot. Soon after Trigon was defeated, the Titans hit the ground running with Dick taking the lead in training Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd.
The sets a new tone for the team with Dick is Rachel (Teagan Croft), Gar (Ryan Potter), and Jason Todd (Curran Walters) as the new iteration of the Titans team.
While other members have gone their own ways, with Donna Troy and Starfire pairing up to fight villains, giving us more comic book and Teen Titans vibes, there is a possibility that those two might just join the team later on in the season.
Just as the show was hinting on a possible retirement for Hank and Dove, they are once again sucked into possibly one last fight as a team against an old nemesis who found his way out of prison. This could hint that old friends of the Titans might also find ways to creep back into their lives causing more chaos as the season progresses.
Just like the trailer introduced, fans of the TV show will also be introduced to a range of new characters joining the show, the infamous Bruce Wayne played by Iain Glen and Slade/Deathstroke played by Esai Morales. Rose Wilson, played by Chelsea Zhang, joins shortly after.
While the trailer did tease the appearance of Jericho, Wonder Boy and Aqualad, it might take a few episodes in before they make an appearance.
It’s quite clear with the debut of Slade, the storyline immediately jumps into letting audiences know that both the Bat family and former Titans member have had quite the traumatic clash with him. With more diversity in characters, season 2 is proving to be less monotonous in comparison with its previous reason.
The writers have improved the show’s quality in terms of plot direction as well as more polished writing. Episode 1 and 2 has set a more promising tone for the rest of the season, here’s hoping that the pace is consistent throughout.
