Review by Adam Ray
Trigon has risen. The latest episode of this season begins right where the last one ended. Viewers are plunged back into the demonic hostage situation, and it’s an exciting and gripping way to return to the action. The original plan for the series was to have this be the season one finale, but I’m glad they decided to grab us with it as the season two opener instead. It works very effectively for drawing a viewer in after a long wait.
There’s a very clear halfway point in this episode and anyone with a big sword could chop it right down the middle. We see how the presence of Trigon is resolved, then we see their paths going forward. The Titans are back, and they’re very welcome indeed.
Bruce of House Wayne
Mixed in towards his episode’s conclusion, we finally see him. Iain Glen’s Bruce Wayne is a very interesting take on the character. No one can take away Glen’s screen presence. He brings the impactful weight that the character deserves. He’s a figure on the screen, dominating the hallway they walk down and the sofa they sit on. It’s not fair of me to say that I cringe seeing Bruce Wayne with thinning hair. There’s something to an aged Batman. If it were any other actor, he wouldn’t wear the age well, but Glen looks world weary in the role. Weather beaten. He also has the look of an actual international business executive. Could someone mockup Iain Glen’s Bruce Wayne on a cover of Forbes please?
This episode compromises nothing from the strong season one. We jump back into the action with the best, and most exciting threads yet to come. Watching season two of Titans progress will be very exciting indeed.
