While Titans kicked off their third season with a lot of promise and even a nice bit of Krypto appreciation, things haven’t been smooth sailing since. In fact, for the last three episodes (episodes 4, 5, and 6), we haven’t even gotten a glimpse of our favorite Superdog.

It made sense that episode 5, “Lazarus,” would not give us any Krypto since this was a flashback episode of what lead Jason to become the Red Hood. But not having Krypto in episode 4, “Blackfire,” made no sense since that was the first episode right after his shining moment as the one member of the Titans to be at Hawk’s side until the very end.

And then we have episode 6, “Lady Vic.” In this episode, we got more of Conner (aka Superboy), which is great. But we didn’t even see hint of a tail or puppy ear anywhere.

This begs the question, where is Krypto? Where exactly is Superdog hanging out in Wayne Manor that we never see him?

Titans continues to leave us wanting when it comes to Krypto

We understand that Wayne Manor is very big and even has an entire underground area, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t see any of Krypto, especially if Conner is on the scene. And honestly, why wouldn’t you want this dog at your six? He has gifts just like Conner and he knows how to use them.

While we are enjoying Titans Season 3 for the most part (there have been some moments where we have been left wondering what the heck they are doing), the fact that they have left out their Superdog in three out the first six episodes leaves us wondering why they even bother sometimes.

We want more of Krypto on our screens. And we want to see them utilizing this member of their team. As is, it feels like Conner and Gar (aka Beast Boy) are getting pushed to the side when they could be so much more helpful to the team. But just like in past seasons, it’s mistake after mistake, with the Titans not relying on each other and instead acting like solo heroes who sometimes work together.

Next. Only Murders in the Building asks the big question, “How well do you know your neighbors?”. dark

What do you think? Are you missing Krypto as much as we are? Do you think the Titans are missing out on an opportunity to be more of a team? Let us know below.
