In Review: Titans – Donna Troy

As The Titans go their separate ways, Dick turns to an old friend, Donna Troy, for answers.

Synopsis: As The Titans go their separate ways, Dick turns to an old friend, Donna Troy, for answers.

Review:  Picking things up from last weeks story. The Titans try to deal with their experience in the asylum and look to go their separate ways.

The Story

While Kori, Gar, Raven and her mum head for Ohio. Dick goes back to Chicago where he seeks advice and help from Donna Troy, who is formerly known as Wonder Girl.

This episode is really a way for the team to deal with the aftermath of last weeks show, but it’s also setting things up for a major plot twist, which truly surprises.

Gar is feeling a little cut off from Raven now that her mother is in the picture while Kori is struggling to get her experiences of the asylum out of her head, but seems to be having a flashback of some kind.

Meanwhile, Dick is looking for who he should be now that has given up the mantle of Robin and goes to Donna Troy his childhood friend for some help.

The Acting

Conor Leslie puts in a nice performance as Donna Troy who seems to be quite a bit of fun to hang out with and is very much a positive force in Dicks life. I loved the bit of backstory that we get about her having been Wonder Girl and how her mentor figure Wonder Woman was the opposite of Bruce Wayne. Wonder Woman is about protecting the innocent while Batman is about punishing the guilty. Two sides of the same coin.

Anna Diop is fantastic this week as Kori who seems to be going through a bit of a rough time.

Overall

While there was not as much action as last week. This episode did have a lot of character growth and also built to what I felt was a surprising twist.

We get some wonderful performances from all the actors and the Donna Troy and Dick Grayson friendship is handled really well. I look forward to seeing where all of this goes in next weeks episode.
