'Titans' Season 2 Episode 11: Bruce Wayne meets the team as they prepare to rescue their captive friends
Following their break up in episode 9, the Titans have scattered. However, the capture of their teammates is enough to bring some - if not all - of the team back together, to save Dick Grasyon (Brenton Thwaites) from prison and Gar (Ryan Potter) from Cadmus. According to promotional pictures released by DC Universe, the remaining Titans are joined by none other than Bruce Wayne (Iain Glen) himself - a formidable ally if ever there was one.
Last episode saw the fallout from the Titans going their separate ways. Dick Grayson got himself arrested as atonement for his sins, Gar has been captured by Cadmus labs, and Rachel’s (Teagan Croft) powers take on a mind of their own - literally. The team has never been more fragmented, but hopefully, the call to rescue will be the thing that brings them together, with a little help from Gotham’s Caped Crusader.
According to the official episode description: “With Dick still in prison and Gar under the microscope at Cadmus, the remaining Titans are called together to save their teammates. Meanwhile, Jason and Rose grow closer in Gotham. As Mercy Graves has a breakthrough with her “Project Rakshasa,” Dick has a revelation of his own.”
“Project Rakshasa” could mean a few things, none of them good for the Titans. It’s not beyond the show to have captured an actual demon from Hindu mythology - the show is no stranger to hellish beasts. It also could signal a major transformation for Beast Boy - rakshasas are commonly depicted to be shapeshifters the heads of tigers in ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ lore. Given that Beast Boy can so far only turn into a tiger, this could imply an upgrade to his powers, giving him full shape-shifting abilities like his comics’ namesake. But at what cost does this power come?
The photos include a shot of Deathstroke (Esai Morales), a reminder of the villain’s promise to kill every last one of the Titans if they ever got back together. Even to save their teammates, can the Titans afford to reunite with Deathstroke’s threat hanging over them?
'Titans' Season 2 Episode 11 'E.L._.O.' will arrive on DC Universe on November 15.
