'Titans' season 2 might have the team trapped under Trigon's demonic control but Jericho can still save them all
New photos from the second season's first episode suggest the entire team is about to fall under Trigon's demonic control and the Titans will have to look to a new ally to save them all
The first season of 'Titans' ended on a pretty huge cliffhanger and the trailer for season 2 didn't address how it would be resolved. The last time we saw our heroes, half of them were trapped within a magical forcefield and the other half were enslaved by Trigon (Seamus Dever), the demonic father of Teagan Croft's Rachel Roth aka Raven.
When the trailer dropped, fans were quick to notice Raven had her iconic red gem on her forehead. The gem was used to trap Trigon in the comics before and many assumed this is what would happen.
However, new photos from the second season's first episode suggest a different story. In the episode, titled 'Trigon', Rachel will be sporting her gem but it appears the Titans are still under her father's control.
In the season 1 finale, Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites) was brought under Trigon's control and his eyes turned a demonic smoky black color. The first-look photos released August 21 show the entire team, including Starfire (Anna Diop), Jason Todd (Curran Walters), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Donna Troy (Conor Leslie) and Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly), all sporting the same demonic eyes.
It would appear the Titans have already lost, but one of the new members who will be joining in season 2 could have the power to save them all. We're talking about none other than Jericho (Chella Mann) the son of Deathstroke the Terminator (Esai Morales).
Jericho has the unique power to possess the minds of people he makes eye contact with. While this usually works to put him in control, theoretically, he could also use those powers to free his future teammates.
Having Jericho save the Titans would give the Trigon arc a quick resolution, maybe even within just the first two episodes or so, and would also help bring Deathstroke into the story. The Terminator has already been confirmed to be a major villain for season 2 and his other child, Rose Wilson/Ravager (Chelsea Zhang), will also be making her way to the show.
Season 2 will also be introducing Joshua Orpin and Drew Van Acker as Superboy and Aqualad respectively. Genevieve Angelson, who stars as Caitlin Hobart on the popular Showtime series 'House of Lies', is set to join the cast as Dr. Eve Watson, a research doctor who works at Cadmus Laboratories, the organization that created Superboy. Michael Mosley ('Ozark') will also be joining the cast as the villainous Dr. Arthur Light.
'Titans' season 2 will begin airing on DC Universe starting September 6.
