Last Minute Reveal: After strolling into the living room of Wayne Manor, Scarecrow stretched out on the couch with a bottle of Scotch while Jason slashed up a portrait of Bruce and his parents!
Ed’s Winner for the Week: The Butt Monsters - I was trying to pull a theme together about women returning home but this week's Doom Patrol just broke me. Legends of Tomorrow has always been regarded as the bonkers DC series but the fact that Doom Patrol airs on a streaming service instead of a broadcast network allows it to reach a whole new level of strange and deranged. The episode "Undead Patrol" just hit a new high point. The legion of shark-toothed "were-butts" as Jane called them were the exact type of absurdism that the world needs right now. I know the concept is terrifyingly stupid, but somehow its very existence gives me faith in humanity.
