Following up the success of Titans, DC Universe continues the first season of Doom Patrol, with Episode 7: Therapy 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. Much to his father’s disapproval, Cyborg (Joivan Wade) joins the ragtag team to find Dr. Niles Caulder and stop the apocalypse. Mr. Nobody reveals to the team how he messed up the previous Doom Parol during their last confrontation.

During Elasti-Girl (April Bowlby)’s day, Rita is unable to control her body and turns into a blob. She falls through the vents and stops moving after hitting the furnace. Since the day she was born, Elasti-Girl pretended to be Rita Farr but now who is she?

During Robotman’s day,  Cliff Steele (Fraser)  demands know why his best friend become the father to his kid. After getting blasted by a sonic-powered shotgun, Robotman destroys his best friend’s home. In reality, he was trashing the mansion and picking a fight with Cyborg. 

During Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero)’s day, she is unable to control her anger towards The Chief. She thinks he was going to put her in a home like the rest of the Doom Patrol. She ends up destroying all of Niles’ vodetapes and wrecking all his research.

During Larry Trainor (Bomer)’s day, he ends up talking to the Negative Spirit in his dreams. Larry has been living in fear as a gay man, afraid to share his sexuality with the rest of the world. Using the face of Larry’s former lover, the Negative Spirit shares his torture and admits he misses the sun. 

During Cyborg’s day, his dating site has been getting tons of attention from freaky girls. The one girl he does like is disgusted by his metallic body. After getting into a fight with Robotman, Cyborg realizes they are in a weakened state, which is what Mr. Nobody wants.  

During their therapy session, Rita manages to put her leg back together. Larry’s self-loathing is hurting himself and the negative spirit. Cyborg declares to everyone that he killed his own mother.

Jane then shows the entire team the painting she made. She foresaw their deaths if they confront Mr. Nobody. The therapy session ends after she abruptly runs out angry. 

After Jane leaves Doom Manor, Robotman has another psychotic break. While on the floor, Robotman sits out a rat from his mouth. The rat turns out be Admiral Whiskers.    

Following Mr. Nobody’s orders, Admiral Whiskers sought revenge against Robotman, messing with his circuitry.
