3. Season 2
The second season of Titans was set back right out of the gate because its premiere had to serve as a finale to the Trigon story of the previous season. While it wasn’t perfect, there was a more uplifting approach to it that made it a much easier watch. And that would set the tone perfectly for season 2, because things felt younger, lighter, and fresher pretty quickly.
There were new dynamics, too that brought it to life. It was great to see characters like Wonder Girl and Jason Todd join the show full-time, while the introduction of Superboy was equally as welcome. And that all allowed for new friendships to form as well, with Kory and Donna making an excellent team, and Gar and Conner being one of the show’s most endearing friendships.
Deathstroke was a very different type of villain to Trigon, and that was exactly what the show needed. It didn’t get lost in its own ambitions, there was less of a need for questionable CGI, and even though Dick was at the center of it, there was more of an ensemble feel.
Granted, it did start to fall apart the longer that it went on, but this was a refreshing step in the right direction for Titans.
