Titans Season 2 covered tons of story developments, introduced new characters and drastically changed old characters and it all leads to the finale on November 29th. Season 2 also managed to introduce a new, but all too familiar villain: Deathstroke.
Season 2 also introduced Superboy and Krypto while giving Iain Glen’s Bruce Wayne a great amount of screentime. The highlight of season 2, though, has been Deathstroke and his history with the old Titan’s team.
After finishing up the Trigon story from season 1, Titan’s jumped right into Deathstroke and his complicated history with the Titan’s. This history made Dick Grayson go through an emotional rollercoaster as he contemplates his dark attempts at revenge against Deathstroke. Everything in season 2, in regards to Grayson, has been building up to a change in identity for the character. The death of Robin but the rise of Nightwing.
The trailer teases Grayson as Nightwing fighting Deathstroke with his twin electrically charged batons.
The trailer also heavily hinted at a character death. All the Titans are standing at a funeral but one is missing, Jason Todd. Anyone who is familiar with comics knows about Todd’s death, by the hands of Joker, and eventual resurrection as the Red Hood. Titan’s will likely follow a similar story beat but replace Joker with Deathstroke. Deathstroke already tried to kill Todd earlier in the season but failed. Will he succeed in the finale?
Another tease includes Superboy fighting the Titans. The character has struggled with his identity throughout the whole season. He was born from a test tube, using Superman and Lex Luthor’s DNA. In other words, he has a conflicted source of evil and good inside of him. This storyline will likely see it’s a climax in the form of a big fight against the Titans.
Titans has been renewed for season 3, which will release in Fall 2020.
