Doom Patrol season two jumps right back into the strange, hilarious, and twisted world of season one. Only better. If that is possible.
If you missed Doom Patrol season one, now is the time to binge it. Trust me. All 15 episode fly by, even though they are nearly an hour long. This show is more than worth a watch, and with season two right around the corner, you want to be caught up.
Doom Patrol is one of my favorite comic book shows currently (Stargirl being another one). The way this show goes from serious to hilarious is near perfection, it really is. Season two continues that, and I don’t think you will be disappointed.
The first episode is the perfect way to bring us back into the world of Doom Patrol. Of course it is setting up a whole season’s story, and I am totally here for it. I don’t think I realized just how attached I am to all of the characters, even the ones I love to hate. Dare I say it, season two just might be better than season one.
The second episode, Tyme Patrol, might just be my favorite episode of the season so far (I have seen the first three). Why? I have no clue. But it was a lot of fun mixed with heart. I laughed and I even cried (more than once). I really felt like I got to learn a lot more about the characters I love in this one.
Episode three just continues the madness. But we also get to see some stuff from the past, which is always fun! There is also a lot about Cliff’s story that I have been waiting to see. And Cyborg makes some bit leaps in this episode too… overall, it is a great one for character development.
Honestly though, this whole season is sure to be amazing if it continues the momentum it started with. This show is a little bit off the wall crazy, which is what I love about it. It is a must watch for anyone who enjoys the strange, the weird, and ensemble shows.
If you like comics, but have yet to check out Doom Patrol, that doesn’t mean you should skip this show. Those were my thoughts when this first came out and I missed out on seeing this show so much sooner. I have just started watching it through again, this time with my husband — who is hooked after episode two!

Back To The Weird
If you watched season one of Doom Patrol then you know some things that happen are down right crazy. They are strange and weird and should not work. The thought that any show would try to pull this off — and have it not only work but be amazing — is mind-boggling. I mean, a sentient street that can teleport. Like a street. That is alive. How is that a thing? And yet it is. And it works.
Doom Patrol season two has no problem dumping us right back into the strange and twisted world. Not much time has passed but our heroes(?) are making the most out of being tiny. The first episode does a great job of reminding viewers what happened in season one, while progressing the story forward and bringing up new issues. Issues that are sure to be major plot points in the season moving forward.
After the news of Chief’s daughter was sprung on us last season, we finally learn more about her! We also get to see her face, which was hidden from us at the end of season one. I can only assume that was because they had not cast her, or didn’t want us to know what about her deformity was.
In the first two episodes, we learn a lot about Dorothy and her relationship with her father. I was instantly intrigued with her backstory and went searching through comic books to get it. Hopefully we see a lot of her in season two, and I think we will.
Read below for the synopsis of the first three episodes of Doom Patrol season two.
Doom Patrol Season Two Episode One: Fun Size Patrol
In the Doom Patrol season two premiere, Niles, Jane, Cliff, Rita, Vic and Dorothy are still trapped in miniature-size, weeks after the events of last season. Camped out in Cliff’s miniature race-track set up, Dorothy tries to befriend both Cliff and Jane, while Larry does his best to figure out a way to restore everyone to their normal size once again.
Meanwhile, Rita asks Vic for help in using her elastic abilities for good, while Jane hides out in the Underground and Niles tries everything to earn forgiveness for his past deeds. In the end though, Niles will have to sacrifice something very precious, by making a bargain with Willoughby Kipling (recurring guest star MARK SHEPPARD) in order to help the team and keep his daughter safe – and the world safe from her imaginary friends.
Doom Patrol Season Two Episode Two: Tyme Patrol
Cliff, Jane, and Rita pursue Dr. Tyme (guest star BRANDON PEREA) – and his time-altering space mineral – in their reluctant quest to help Niles and Dorothy. At a support group, Vic meets Roni (guest star KAREN OBILOM), a feisty military vet who challenges his beliefs. And Larry comes face-to-face with his past at a funeral.
Doom Patrol Season Two Episode Three: Pain Patrol
In the wake of a terrifying omen, Niles and Rita enter the interdimensional palace of the infamous Red Jack (guest star ROGER FLOYD), who feeds on pain and has taken Larry prisoner. Jane is called to The Underground to receive an ultimatum, while her physical body travels to Florida with Cliff, who’s eager to prove he’s a good father. Back at the manor, Dorothy’s game of hide and seek ends badly.

The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities–but also left them scarred and disfigured.
