Titans Season Three Finale and my thoughts on the show, so far!
Well, here we are, folks! The Titans Season Three finale! And as much as this hurts me to say, I’m glad this is it! This season started off great, but somewhere down the line, the show just fell off! But, more on that later. For now, SPOILERS AHEAD
So, Scarecrow’s plan is to poison all of Gotham City with an advanced version of his fear toxin. While Crane makes his grand plan come true, poisoning a small number of civilians in the city, the Titans try to come up with a way to counter the effects. At the GCPD, Barbara is surprised that her second-in-command, Vee, is an agent of the secret organization A.R.G.U.S. (Amanda Waller cameo, anyone?). She offers help to Barbara, while Dick rethinks his whole approach in stopping Scarecrow, instead of playing by Batman’s old rules, Dick remembers that he’s a part of a team. He orders the team to split up, with each group having a specific objective to end Scarecrow’s reign of terror.
While the team works on performing miracles, Dick and Jason Todd meet up. While Dick tells Jason that after all he’s done, he’ll never be a Titan again, he can still help with stopping Crane. So, it's Nightwing, Red Hood, Beast Boy, and Tim Drake, going to the Batcave and beating all the corrupt cops’ asses! While the boys are doing their thing, Superboy, Raven, Starfire, and Blackfire come up with a way to use the Lazarus Pit’s regenerative properties to undo the fear toxin and bring back all the people who die from it in the city! When they eventually do capture Crane and put him back in Arkham, Dick and Raven pay a visit, making sure he never breaks out again! After a brief but much-needed heart-to-heart with Bruce Wayne, Jason sets off on a path of self-discovery. Meanwhile, the rest of the Titans decide to go back to California via road trip!
So, my overall thoughts on the show…just Good. Not great, but not terrible either. Just…Good. Like, day-old pizza good. You’re still gonna eat it, cause it's pizza. But it’s not as good as the day it was made, see? Titans had (and still has) the potential to tell some truly great stories, based on the comic book stories! But I personally feel that this season lacked a truly good villain to keep us watching! Like, Scarecrow was good on paper, but I really wish the writers had taken a page from Batman: Arkham Knight, cause that’s a Scarecrow. In addition, there were just too many subplots the keep track of. From Beast Boy’s fear of transformation to the potential love triangle with Nightwing, Starfire, and Barbara Gordon (plus that little girl in the dream sequence, is supposed to be Dick’s daughter?!) and the rivalry with Starfire and Blackfire just left the viewers with too much to keep up with. As I said, there is some good in the show, but unless the writers improve, I doubt the show will get better. With some regret, I give season three of Titans a 6 out of 10. Post your thoughts below, and till next time fellow blerds!
