DC Universe has released promotional pictures for the upcoming third episode of 'Titans' Season 2 'Ghosts' that seems to hint at an epic and potentially fatal confrontation between the supervillain Doctor Arthur Light (Michael Mosley) and Jason Todd/Robin (Curran Walters). Since his introduction in the first season, Jason has shown time and again that despite all his training he is still a hot-headed teenager and it looks like that recklessness could lead to him biting off more than he can chew. 

The images show Jason in full costume preparing for battle in what appears to be an underground tunnel of some sort. A second picture shows Mosley's Light, standing ominously in the same tunnel. Judging from the stills, it looks like Jason might take it upon himself to bring down the recently escaped supervillain, despite Light's vendetta being mostly targeted against the older Titans Donna Troy (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Jason's predecessor as Robin, Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites).

Though he can sometimes be an annoying brat, most 'Titans' fans will agree Jason has grown on us and if Light were to seriously injure him or worse, murder the young hero, it's bound to cause more than a few tears. Of course, there's always a chance Jason could come out of this confrontation alive and well. But then again, the odds are stacked against him.

Is Jason a smart and efficient vigilante? Yes. Is he also a reckless adolescent who throws punches; who's likely to get himself killed? Most certainly. On the bright side, comic book fans would know that death is only the beginning for Jason Todd.

In the comics, he was brutally murdered by the Joker only to be brought back to life years later. Since his resurrection, he has earned himself a whole lot of fans for his edgy, semi-villainous actions as the vigilante Red Hood. All things considered, Jason's death, if it does happen, may actually help the character evolve into a much better form but it would still be hard to see him go.
