Added DiffLines:

*Black Lightning is put through the ringer throughout the season, and while his sullenness doubles as a TearJerker, Static being by his side and him eventually going to see Lynn and their kids remind him of the most important things of his life. It's quite nice to see.



to:

* Compounded by the fact that Aqualad says he accepts the position, but only until Robin is ready for it himself. He isn't ready ''yet'' but one day he will be, and they both recognize it.

Added DiffLines:

* Halo choosing, well... "Halo", as her superhero name because it was the first name she was given. Brion then tells her that Halo is a beautiful name.

Added DiffLines:

[[AC:Another Freak]]
* Dick asking Brion if he's going to be a man who looks back on what he's lost, or one who looks forward to what he might become. At the end of the episode, Dick goes to check on him again and Brion seems to be taking the point to heart. While the show doesn't spell it out, this is the decision that Dick has had to make again and again, after the deaths of his parents and Wally.



to:

* Virgil gives Bart a hug, given Joan had just recently passed away.




to:

** Also showing Cassie getting along with her mother in the photo with the Dorados. It helps given the stuff that likely is with Cassie's father's situation.


* If you look at it from a certain point of view, you can see why Vandal Savage is so hellbent on accelerating mankind's evolution; it's to save it from Darkseid. Through blind luck alone, Savage stopped the first Apokoliptian invasion back in the 13th century by impressing Darkseid and agreeing to help him conquer the universe together, then engage in a final battle agaisnt each other. Its enough to make you consider that Savage isn't completely a villain, just someone who's willing to do whatever it takes to save his species.

* Apparently Jaime and Traci are a couple which is sweet. And she's even aware of some of the Scarab's.. [[NoKillLikeOverkill quirks]].

** [[spoiler: Even members of the Team and Outsiders who weren't aware of Terra's hidden allegiences don't hold any resentment against her for it. Even Beast Boy, who she almost tried to bludgeon with a large rock, pities her over her falling out with her brother.]]

to:

** We also get a CallBack in the form of the way the Outsiders get excited - Violet even asks if 'today's the day' they get their superhero identities, just like Robin, Speedy, Aqualad and Kid Flash from the first season. When Nightwing says that it is, it even looks like he's tearing up remembering the old team.

Added DiffLines:

[[AC: Elder Wisdom]]
* Jay, Barry, and Bart recording a video together in support of the Outsiders. Followed up with an entire collage of various supporting characters videos affirming support for the team on social media.

to:

** [[spoiler: Even better is that Terra gets a chance to no other version of her ever did: the chance to live and atone for her crimes. And she may have lost Brion but she still has Gregor so she won't be alone in her atonement.]]



to:

* Terra running into Artemis' arms [[spoiler: after it's revealed she was supposed to be a mole for Deathstroke. The Judas Contract has been deflected!]]

Added DiffLines:

[[AC: Overwhelmed]]
*While having a one on one heart to heart with Forager, Connor adopts Forager's way of speaking in order to further empathize with him.

[[AC: Nevermore]]
*At the end of a very hard episode, Barbara tells Dick how much people are regaining their hope in super heroes. Notably, that her father was able to turn back on the Bat Signal: to applause heard out on the street! Even Mr. "They aren't supposed to like me" is getting some love.
*Forager is able to out himself not just as an alien but show his true form. And his classmates respond like they were just told midterms were canceled.
**Likewise Victor is able to go back to school, saving Cisco from some bullying.
*On a bittersweet note: Brion's body language indicates internal conflict and a degree of guilt as he sits on his new throne. Implying some hope can still be had for him going forward.



to:

* It's very heartwarming that Will is at a place where Dick can casually refer to him as a clone, and joke about it alongside Jim.

Added DiffLines:

* The Young Justice tie-in comic is entirely canon to the series, scripted and/or plotted by series showrunner Greg Weisman, and reading it fills in a lot of the blanks of the animated series. Among other things, it explains why Superboy hates monkeys so much. Unfortunately, aside from a short prequel, the comic wasn't renewed along with the series. However! Chris Jones, penciller and inker for most of the issues (aside from the first six or so, plus a couple fill-ins done by Luciano Vecchio) has now been hired as a Storyboard Revisionist on the show proper!

Added DiffLines:

[[AC: Terminus]]
* Nightwing briefly hallucinating Wally returning and the Team in their season 1 outfits, complete with the reprisal of the original theme as they work together. When he snaps out of it, M'gann reveals that all of them saw it thanks to the psychic link, and Artemis hugs him and reaffirms that Wally is still with them. When Kaldur asks if he's ready to go back to combat, Nightwing just grins, lights up his weapon, and says that he hasn't felt this good in years.
