Screen Grabs



There was nothing too spectacular here, unfortunately. Following last weeks outstanding ďXĒ was going to be difficult to begin with, but most of this episode was sub par.

The episode focuses on Starfireís home world, and on Tamaran, marriages are arranged, much to Robinís chagrin. Of course itís all a double cross, the appearance of Blackfire made that obvious from the moment she appeared.

With the exception of Robin and Starfire, none of the Titans really did anything. The Robin/Starfire relationship is one of the more interesting aspects of Teen Titans to me, there was nothing here to make a brave leap forward for them, but itís no obvious Robin has some feelings for her, and Beast Boy and Cyborg apparently arenít blind, as they are aware of it.

The relationship aside, there was very little to this episode. Animation wise, it took a step down from last weeks episode, and most Titans episodes. The fight scenes were nothing to write home about, which is disappointing, as Teen Titans has some of the best-choreographed fight scenes on TV.

Overall the episode wasnít bad by any means it just wasnít very good...
