Titans - Aqualad

Disconnected from current events, "Aqualad" offers a flashback episode that introduces another former member of the team in Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) who will meet a tragic end at the hands of Deathstroke (Esai Morales). What's almost immediately obvious about the episode is the show's creators chose the wrong actor and character to kill off as Van Acker infuses the Second Season with energy and charm missing from the current state of the more sullen members of the team. The flashback also helps build out Donna Troy's (Conor Leslie) backstory a bit more as well while offering the key moment that changed the Titans forever. The episode also offers the first run-in the team had with Dr. Light (Michael Mosley) and gives fans a look at the full roster of the original Titans team in full costume for the first time.
