READ AT OWN RISK!!!!!!!
THERE IS JUST SO MUCH TO TALKE ABOUT, MY X'HAL.
First things first:
-Dick Died? Like for real? Usually when I'm attached to characters I cry, but I wasn't convinced enough last episode to believe Dick had "died". But since Gar and Rachel found the Lazarus Pit, I'm not surprised they ended up using it on Dick.
-Can we also talk about how Dick never dies in the comics besides it ever being Damian's fault? There literally has never been any other time unless we counting Justice League Dark: Apokolipse War, but everyone kinda died in that one.
-I think the best thing that came from Dick dying is Gar finally FINALLY transforming into something other than a tiger. I hope in season 4 we can see him trying to shift into other creatures.
-The Drake family. I would watch an entire Kardashian style show of this family, I love them! Tim's parents are beyyyyyyond real with him when it comes to being the next Robin. He has a family that loves him and wants to protect him, and I can understand why they want to keep him from becoming Robin. It wasn't even a few weeks ago the news of Robin #2 was found dead, it isn't a life they see for their son.
-I won't forgive the writers for not making the Lazurus Pit green, you had one job.
-I'm not even going to try and unload Dick's fight for his soul. The Joker, really? Could we have skipped that part and went straight to his redemption?
Okay, its time:
-The entire scene of Dick seeking forgiveness from his father and seeing his younger self. I think I still need time to process this. Brenton has this amazing ability to show such humility through his eyes, and cry on demand, it makes the scene so real.
Especially when we see Mar'i for the first time. I cannot believe I'm actually typing this, but we saw Mar'i Grayson. For the first time ever, and it was also the first time, watching this show, that Dick had some real hope for a future. This man tries so hard to make a family for himself, and he finally has a chance to make that happen. It's not some disoriented hallucination from drugs or Trigon, this was all Dick.
-Rachel and Gar, their little scene together was so wholesome. I really missed seeing them together and the heart to hearts they have.
Yooo the biggest moment today: Connor's betrayal.
-I was not expecting this to happen. Like I was ready for Kom to be going off on this ship, heading to Tamaran, and maybe start to find peace with herself.
(We also lost the entire scene of Kori and Kom talking about their parents decisions too).
-But Connor Connor, my innocent little flower fucking blew that shit up. No joke, if he's the villain next season, that would be lit. The whole cinematography, the scene as a whole was beautiful. The parallels between Connor trying to save Hank earlier this season and seen him in the depths of raging fire, but then here again, but staring away from the destruction, being the cause of it all, damn. No words. And here I thought Kom was going to be the one to hurt Connor, it was the other way around and I'm completely flabbergasted.
-I'm glad we got to see Babs again and actually being herself. Her acting passed out to trick the cop was great. I miss that version of Barbara Gordon. The woman that kicks ass and outsmarts people. Not just Dick's girl.
-I'm also curious as to what Crane wants Babs alive for. What does he have planned for her? Also, why were we just given a glimpse of what Babs was doing while imprisoned. Why did we not know Crane was speaking with her everyday for however long it's been since the Titans tried to turn themselves in?
-I'm angry it took until the third to last episode for Crane to finally be a good villain. He took over the city, got his big bad plan in motion, and is about to blow shit up. Where was this man 10 episodes ago!!!
Overall, great episode. I hope we can keep this momentum up until the finale.
