One of the main overarching storylines of “Titans” so far has been Starfire (Anna Diop) uncovering the truth about her real identity and alien heritage, while also being reluctant to return home to Tamaran. Season 2 saw Koriand’r’s sister Blackfire (Damaris Lewis) murder her own parents to rule the planet for herself before arriving on Earth, presumably to kill Starfire. Family, eh? With that in mind, expect some heated fights between the two siblings in the next season. We’d put money on Starfire heading out to avenge the deaths of her parents, to ultimately wind up returning to Tamaran at some point.
Blackfire isn’t the only major villain in the next batch episodes, as a classic Batman villain will also make an appearance at Arkham Asylum — Dr. Jonathan Crane, aka Scarecrow (per Variety). Played by “Mad Men” alum Vincent Kartheiser, it’s not exactly clear how the nightmarish foe will go up against the Titans, but it seems likely that his introduction will also give way to the arrival of another brilliant member of the Bat-Family, that being Barbara Gordon. Savannah Welch has joined Season 3 as the former Batgirl, so she’ll probably have a unique insight into what makes Crane tick.
Hopefully it won’t be too long before “Titans” arrives on our screens, because the combination of all these villains could propel the show to brilliance.
