Ed’s Winner for the Week: Fear - Characters in all of our shows this week were afraid... very afraid. Yorick (Y: The Last Man), Allison and 355 were afraid that their reformed prisoner hosts might not accept them. Eclipso continued to terrify Stargirl and all her friends and family. On Supergirl, poor little Esme was scared that Kelly and Alex might change their mind about adopting her. Ava freaked out that all the timeline changes her fellow Legends were causing would be irreparable. Batwoman and company were all horrified by the new Mad Hatter. Rita's fears were allayed by the joy she discovered hanging with the Sisterhood of Dada, while the rest of the Doom Patrol threw caution to the wind on their own personal journeys. Finally on Titans, Dick had to reconcile his feeling of fear and rage in order to swim his way out of the Lazarus Pit.
