Titans’ fourth episode, ‘Aqualad,’ delivers a flashback introducing two new characters, but still no Krypto the Superdog or Superboy.

We are still on Krypto watch here at Dog O’Day, and while we may be eagerly waiting for our superhero pup to arrive, that doesn’t mean we aren’t enjoying what Titans is delivering. In fact, their latest episode, ‘Aqualad,’ not only introduced some new characters, but it was the kind of flashback episode that answered a few questions for fans as well.

As dog lovers, we are always on the lookout for animals in our favorite shows, and if ever there was something missing from Titans, it would have to be dogs, cats, and basically anything animal related. Once again, the fourth episode of the season left us looking for animals of any kind, and as this was a flashback, we didn’t even get to see Gar, our resident shifter.

However, while we are sad to report that there is still no sign of Krypto the Superdog or Superboy, we finally met Aqualad (aka Garth). And while his story is actually a sad one (we won’t ruin it with spoilers), it was great getting the chance to see Aquaman’s young protegé in action.

Even without any animals to appreciate, this episode of Titans was well crafted and left us wanting more. It also left us eager to see what comes next, which is always important. Knowing what happened in the past to shape characters like Dawn, Donna, Hank, and Dick, gives us an idea of how the new team of Titans can improve upon what the original team tried to accomplish. At the same time, it also lets us get a feel for what it will be like adding new members to the team (we are totally thinking about Superboy and Krypto here).

What this episode did was set the stage for what the new team of Titans would be facing in the present day. And it also acted as an explanation for why the old group is the way it is with each other. Loss and disappointment can go a long way towards breaking up a family, especially a family made up of superhero sidekicks looking to prove that they can be heroes in their own right.

While we can’t wait for Krypto’s arrival as dog lovers, in this case, this is one episode that the series needed to set the stage for Deathstroke’s true arrival on the scene. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t be sad that we are still lacking animals even four episodes into the season. But at the same time we know Krypto will be here soon and we are excited for that arrival.
