'Doom Patrol' Season 2 Episode 7 Preview: Get set for Mr Nobody's possible return and an attack of bad ideas
The promo for the episode teases the possible return of Mr Nobody and if that wasn't bad enough, the team will face a threat that they're terrible at handling — their own bad ideas
'Doom Patrol' Season 2 is now nearing its final act and things are about to get crazier than ever. In Episode 7 'Dumb Patrol', the team faces a threat that they are terrible at handling: their own bad ideas.
The synopsis and promo for the episode don't reveal the full nature of this threat but the misfits of Doom Manor have more bad ideas on their best days than the average person, so it's probably not going to be as simple as it sounds. But that's not the only threat that the next episode will feature. Based on the promo for the episode, Niles Caulder / The Chief (Timothy Dalton) is going to have a custody battle with the Candlemaker (Lex Lang) over Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro). We have no clue how that is going to play out but considering everything we have seen the Candlemaker do so far, you wouldn't be wrong to fear for Chief's life.
But the biggest tease of all comes at the end of the trailer when we see Diane Guerrero's Jane (or is it Miranda now?), Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer) and Cyborg / Victor Stone (Joivan Wade) seemingly back in the painting and talking to Beardhunter (Tommy Snider). The scene teases the potential return of Negative Man and if this does happen, it could be the nail in the coffin for our ragtag team.
The cast of 'Doom Patrol' Season 2 includes Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, April Bowlby as Rita Farr / Elasti-Woman, Joivan Wade as Victor Stone / Cyborg, Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor / Negative Man, Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele / Robotman and Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder / The Chief. Robotman and Negative Man are brought to life by on-set performers Riley Shanahan and Matthew Zuk respectively.
Guest stars appearing in the episode include Mark Sheppard as Willoughby Kipling, Karen Obilom as Roni Evers, Tommy Snider as Beardhunter, Bethany Anne Lind as Clara Steele, Irene Ziegler as Mickey Harris, and Avis-Marie Barnes as Martha the Beekeeper.
Here's the official synopsis for Episode 7 'Dumb Patrol': "Miranda helps protect the Doom Patrol from some truly terrible ideas after a mysterious package arrives at Doom Manor. Rita's visit to the Cloverton beekeeper leads her to confront her lingering mommy issues. While on his way back to the manor, Cliff ends up stuck on the side of the road – literally. Niles heads north to find Dorothy's mother."
'Doom Patrol' Season 2 streams on Thursdays on DC Universe and HBO Max.
