Recap / Teen Titans S 5 E 12 Titans Together

Go To

The Penultimate episode of the series picks up where the last one left off. The Titans that are left standing at the end of the episode band together under Beast Boy's leadership. With a team consisting of Mas, Jericho, The Herald, and Pantha, the five break into the Brotherhood of Evil's headquarters, with the intent of establishing the Mas-Menos speedster duo as a first step towards resistance.

Not only did she gets attacked many times before she even gets a chance to fight, Jinx returns to defeat her before being flung towards the machine she and the Brotherhood use to freeze the young heroes.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Beast Boy can't pass up on a joke at the end. All of the heroes collectively groan in response.

  • Series Fauxnale: It seems like the finale. Except there's one episode left ...
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: At the end of the episode, the crime alert goes off as Dr. Light is robbing a bank. The Titans decide to go after him while taking all of their allies with them.

  • Twin Telepathy: Actually justified, Mas & Menos emit a magnetic field sensed by the other that becomes more powerful the closer they are.
  • I Warned You: As Kid Flash puts it,
    Kid Flash: Now's the time when you're probably thinking "I shouldn't have hooked up with these Brotherhood guys. Hate to say it but TOLD YA!.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The Doom Patrol, the group that's been pursuing the Brotherhood of Evil for a long time, do not appear, as Beast Boy did not call on them.
