Season 2 Episode 3, Titans

DC Universe continues the critically acclaimed Titans with Season 2, Episode 3: Ghosts, starring Brenton Thwaites and Teagan Croft. After the first season finale, Dick Grayson (Thawites) hopes to train Raven (Croft) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) as new members to the superhero group he’s trying to build.

After learning Rose (Chelsea T. Zhang) is actually Deathstroke’s daughter, Grayson starts to remember what happened in the past. Deathstroke blames the Titans for his son’s death, but Rose accuses her father of killing her brother, Jericho. Grayson reluctantly tells Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dove (Minka Kelly), and Donna Troy (Connor Leslie) about the connections to Dr. Light and their past.

After her stakeout with Donna, Kory (Anna Diop) was kidnapped by her former bodyguard. Though she was kept in restraints, the bodyguard releases Kory as his prisoner. If she returns home with him, Kory’s sister will not send any more men to Earth. Kory finally gets to her phone and tells Donna what has happened.

Unfortunately, a bus full of innocent civilians arrives at the fight, distracting Grayson from capturing his enemy. 

After Doctor Light disappears, Hawk ends up blaming Grayson for his escape. Making matters worse, Jason starts a fights with Grayson but gets knocked down after one punch. Rose then shows off her sword skills as she starts a sparring session with the Titans team leader. 

Raven makes a desperate call to Kory, asking for her help. Raven is afraid of the dark presence inside of her and has been struggling to keep it down. Realizing Raven is need of her care, Kory traps her bodyguard in her spaceship and runs off to Titans Tower.

Jason offers to help with Beast Boy’s surveillance and discovers Doctor Light’s secret hiding place. Needing a win, Jason convinces Beast Boy to go with him to the abandoned subway station. Beast Boy is reluctant being in the dark and creepy tunnel because Grayson doesn’t know where they are.
