During season 1, Titans quickly became my favorite superhero series. Season 2 had a few lengths but was still well above the Arrowverse shows and similar super-soaps. And then *this* happens. What was that even? Writer Richard Hatem previously treated us to "Conner", the single best Titans episode to date. Either he or his cowriter Greg Walker of Smallville fame must have suffered a stroke halfway through the script to deliver something like this. But how could director and TV veteran Carol Banker let this slip through? Surely someone must have noticed that this wasn't up to the usual standard, to put it mildly. This was almost comically bad. Here's to hoping the show will be back to form in the next season.
