This final season of Titans is still moving along as Brother Blood (Joseph Morgan) finally makes his move to become the main villain. The episode itself wasn’t all that bad. It had a couple different elements to enjoy, but it might be a case of too little too late. The final episodes in a season will rely heavily on the earlier episodes to set them up. This season of Titans didn’t do that all too well. So now that everything is culminating into a grand finale, it’s hard to enjoy them when there’s a certain disconnect to the characters.
Connor (Joshua Orpin) continues to team with Sebastian, but he realizes he’s made a mistake and returns to working with the Titans. They uncover a weapon designed by Lex Luthor (Titus Welliver) to simulate Starfire’s (Anna Diop) abilities. They hope to use Sebastian to kill Mother Mayhem (Franka Potente) and then use the weapon on Sebastian, but it fails, making Brother Blood even more powerful than ever. Meanwhile, Tim (Jay Lycurgo) visits Gotham and runs into Red Hood (Curran Walters). The two of them then train together, allowing Tim to get some much-needed work as Robin.
There were definitely several nice moments sprinkled throughout the episode. Seeing Tim and Jason Todd training together felt like a scene right out of the comics. Also, Connor’s character turn back to working with the Titans was well done. But Sebastian’s journey to become Brother Blood hasn’t been very smooth. While it was cool to see him embrace his power, he just doesn’t feel as strong of a villain as Deathstroke (Esai Morales) in the second season or Trigon in the first. Titans has had a decent run of four seasons, but if a hypothetical fifth season were continue the trend that the show is taking, then canceling it was the right move.
Titans streams Thursdays on HBO Max.
