It’s a rescue mission as DC Universe continues the first season of Doom Patrol, with Episode 12: Cyborg Patrol, starring Matt Bomer and Brendan Fraser. Find out how this band of superhero weirdos teamed-up against the super villain known as Mr. Nobody (Alan Tudyk). 

When we last left them, Eric Morden (Tudyk) had kidnapped The Chief (Timothy Dalton) from the team once again. After shutting down The Grid, Cyborg (Joivan Wade) is afraid the prophecy will come true and he will kill the entire team. Robotman (Brendan Fraser) reconciles with his long-lost estranged as Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) loses Cyborg.

Back at Doom Manor, Crazy Jane, Elasti-Girl (April Bowlby) and Robotman discover from Larry Trainor (Bomer) where Cyborg has been taken. At the Ant Farm, all the scientists and generals are all eager to start expiementing on Cyborg. What they don’t realize yet is that Cyborg is having a mental breakdown.

Silas Stone (Phil Moris) comes storming in, wanting to know about where his son is. Silas discovers something is wrong with the Grid; as if there’s two. Larry reveals the bad news; Cyborg has ben kidnapped by the Bureau of Normalcy. 

Elsewhere, Cyborg is getting freaked out more and more by The Grid.Even his cell mate is tired of hearing The Grid’s voice; it’s not supposed to be real. Silas wants the team to break into the Ant Farm and rescue his son.  

With Larry and Crazy Jane in disguise, Robotman is in handcuffs as they enter The Ant Farm. Every one is captured by the agents because Silas turned Judas. Silas then finds his son beating himself up inside his cell.    

Meanwhile, an agent spoofs Reservoir Dogs before he’s about to cut Jane open. Jane conjures up Karen to seduce the agent. Robotman vomits out a blob of Rita from his mouth. This was part of Silas’ plan to infiltrate the Ant Farm.   

After rescuing Larry, Robotman decides to let the inmates out of their cells. Suddenly, the Ant Farm is swarmed by an army of man-eating butts (I kid you not!). Silas is having a difficult time though convincing his son to tun the Grid back on. 

The Grid then shows Cyborg a deleted piece of memory. Thinking his father has betrayed him, Cyborg starts hitting him. After Silas is beaten to a bloody pulp, Mr. Nobody shows himself. 

Unfortunately, Cyborg has been tricked this entire time by Mr. Nobody. Realizing what he has done, Cyborg holds onto his father as he cries for help.
