In Review: Titans – E.L._.O.

With Dick still in prison and Gar under the microscope at Cadmus, the remaining Titans are called together to save their teammates.

Synopsis: With Dick still in prison and Gar under the microscope at Cadmus, the remaining Titans are called together to save their teammates.

Review: Another one of those trippy episodes, but one that leads to a satisfying pause in the action to allow the heroes to come back together.

The Story

Dick is still in prison and still punishing himself for having misled the other Titans, but he is no having hallucinations of Bruce Wayne again and he is not having an easy time of it. The hallucinations of Bruce, which is sort of Dick’s version of Jimminy Cricket is not one to suffer fools and he speaks very plainly to Dick to a point where he has no other choice but to listen.

Elsewhere Rachel aka Raven is having the dreams again and is dreaming about the death of Dick, who is apparently killed by Deathstroke. This leads her to booking a bus ticket to a small town called Elco where she meets Wonder Girl, Dove, and Starfire. Wonder Girl and Dove decide to rescue Gar who is being held by Cadmus while Raven and Starfire head to the prison to break Dick out but arrive too late to find him already gone.

The Acting

The scenes between Dick and Bruce Wayne are the highlight of the episode. Iain Glen is brilliant as an older Bruce Wayne who is able to push Dick’s buttons, and although Glen is too old to be playing Mr. Wayne at this particular point in the timeline of Batman. I find it hard to think of a younger actor that could pull some of the scenes off that he is playing.

Chelsea Zhang and Curran Walters also have some pretty strong scenes together as the new Robin and Rose aka Slade Wilson’s daughter form a strong connection with each other.

Overall

This episode moves the story along and goes some way to bringing the Titans back together. The closing phonecall between Rose and her father Slade Wilson goes some way to feeding the conflict in the series, but the fact that Dick suspects that Jericho is still breathing is most likely going to make for interesting times ahead for both the Titans and Deathstroke.

Overall. A pretty solid effort.
