'Doom Patrol' Season 2 Episode 5 Preview: Jane and Dorothy get closer but trouble is brewing in 'Finger Patrol'
Episode 5 'Finger Patrol' will see some new friendships being forged while some characters face important choices
After all the crazy partying and sex demon shenanigans in Episode 4 called 'Sex Patrol', Season 2 of 'Doom Patrol' looks like it's moving on to a less ridiculous but more emotional story. Episode 5 'Finger Patrol' will see some new friendships being forged while some characters face important choices.
The synopsis for the episode teases that Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro) will become closer to Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), specifically to one of Jane's alters, the childlike Baby Doll. Dorothy has desperately wanted a friend for a long time and it's nice to see that she'll be getting her wish.
However, the synopsis also teases that their playtime will go awry, which is distressing. Dorothy is a bit of a wild card, more so than the rest of the team, because her vast powers combined with her youth makes her extremely unpredictable. If something is about to go wrong, there's no telling how Dorothy might react and what damage she might cause.
Meanwhile, the rest of the team is having its own crises, though theirs is a little less devastating. Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser) is about to discover that Niles Caulder / The Chief (Timothy Dalton) wants to upgrade Cliff to become more human. Considering how much of Cliff's life has been spent complaining about his robotic nature, there's no telling how he'll take this news. However, whether he likes the idea or not, it's unlikely that Cliff is going to forgive the Chief, now or ever.
In other robotic news, Vic Stone / Cyborg (Joivan Wade) is going to try to win back his latest love interest Roni Evers (Karen Obilom). We have no idea how well that might pan out but we're hoping it works because Vic deserves some romance in his life. Although, the promo does tease some buddy cop action between Vic and Cliffe, so maybe he gets a little distracted.
Finally, we're also going to witness some bonding between Rita Farr (April Bowlby) and Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer) with Larry taking Rita to meet his family. The synopsis also teases that Rita's going to have a terrible audition and Larry's going to find out some details about the life he missed out on, so it's a good thing they'll have each other for support.
Here's the full synopsis for Episode 5 'Finger Patrol': "Dorothy finally finds a friend in Baby Doll – until playtime goes awry. Cliff discovers that Niles plans to give him human-like upgrades. Vic devises a plan to win Roni back. After Rita has a lousy audition, Larry brings her along to meet his family and learns more about the life he left behind."
'Doom Patrol' Season 2 streams on Thursdays on both DC Universe and HBO Max.
