We’re here, the penultimate episode of the season and we are so close to the debut of Nightwing! We get a hint at the suit but it stops before actually showing us, instead it was revealed in a unveiling event on social media, which if I’m honest is a little disappointing, I would’ve much rather seen the suit first time in the finale episode but with that being said the suit looks amazing!!! But that’s next week, what else is going on with the fractured team this week?
Well Hank is struggling, being on his own doesn’t fit him well and he’s cage fighting for money and once again has fallen off the wagon, which leads to no end of problems, he needs Dawn and he needs the Titans to keep him on the straight and narrow and keep him as his best self.
Meanwhile Rose reveals the true plan that her father had put in place to Jason, this is where we get pretty much the whole of Rose’s backstory and its awesome! But it doesn’t go down well with Jason, I’m intrigued to what they’re doing with Jason, obviously in the comics he gets killed by the Joker and returns later as Red Hood, you do get to see a lot of that attitude in the show but I wonder how far they’ll go with him?
Dawn and Donna are hot on the heels of Cadmus and very close to rescuing him, or is it too late as Cadmus operates phase one of their plan and where the hell is Conner in all this?
Then there’s Jericho, with the realisation that Jericho is alive we find out exactly how and its pretty amazing, Jericho used his powers and jumped into his fathers consciousness and is being held there by Slade so if Dick is going to save him its going to take a lot of ingenuity because what about his body? Can he even be separated from Slade again? And exactly how much Nightwing are we getting in the Finale??
This was a great episode, it does feel odd how we’re not necessarily building to a big bad showdown for the end of the season but more of a rescue mission, but I like that, it gives this season a different spin than the last.
It all ends next week and boy am I looking forward to it!
