Review

After his debut in the season premiere, Brother Blood, the big bad of season finally returns and the Titans, heroes that they are, go off to save the day.

Veering off from the typical stop the bad guy plot, the story focused heavily on Cyborg wanting to stop Blood himself, but Robin, fearless bad ass leader that he is was having none of it, Cyborg had to fix the giant tower whilst Robin, Starfire and Raven got to whoop ass.

It was nice to see Aqualad again, he didnít really do anything except give Beast Boy someone to talk to, but hey, The Titans needed to go under the sea for something.

I found the episode to be perfectly enjoyable. It doesnít live up to X or Haunted, but itís a nice way to spend 22 minutes. The main critique I have is Bumblebee. She annoyed the hell out of me.

As with any Titans episodes, the humor was there, not as strong as previously shown, but this reviewer had a few belly. Highlights include Raven choosing death over going in Beast Boyís mouth, and Cyborg complaining about Robinís orders.

Animation wise, it was delightful. Whilst thereís no denying the first 2 seasons were pretty to the eye, season 3 has really topped them both. X sets the standard for all future episodes to live up to. This didnít surpass it, but it came damn close, which is all you can ask really.
