In season two, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar, and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface, everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
Season 1 of Titans introduced all of the characters and gave us the main villain of Trigon. This season, the main villain is Deathstroke, the seemingly unkillable assassin. I enjoyed this season a lot more, and not just because the Deathstroke was more than just one-dimensional. There was a lot going on. It actually felt like more than 13 episodes. There was a lot of story told in the past, when we get to meet Aqualad, however briefly. And we learn about Dick’s sins of the past as they come back to haunt the current team of Titans. And we’re introduced to a couple of new Titans (who happen to be favorites of mine) – Rose and Conner, who both have some deep-seeded daddy issues.
The strength of this season is definitely the character development, as the story can be a little convoluted and hard to follow at times. There is definitely some adult content, though it could easily be cut out and not necessary to the story. As a team this new group of Titans have yet to really come together except for a couple scenes. I hope that season 3 will continue the strong character writing and give the team a foe that can handle them all teaming up. I’m enjoying the direction this team is going.
