The third episode of Titans season 2, entitled “Ghosts” hints that Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites) may have some blood on his hands based on his past working with Bruce Wayne/Batman (Iain Glen).
Minor spoilers ahead for Titans season 2 episode 3, “Ghosts” ahead.
During the episode, Dick Grayson and Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson) come close to taking Doctor Light (Michael Mosley) into their custody. However, a hesitant Dick Grayson lets him get away. Hank, disappointed in the former Boy Wonder expresses his frustration while Dick Grayson replies, “I’ll get another shot,” in reference to capturing Doctor Light in the future.
However, Hank gets blunt with his disappointment in Dick Grayson, replying, “The old Robin would have taken the first one.”
Much of Titans deals with Dick Grayson attempting to escape the trauma of his time as Robin alongside Batman. Based on Hank’s comment, it seems that the “old Robin” would’ve pushed his vigilance as far as he could in order to stop villains such as Doctor Light from killing more people. Naturally, this would leave one to come to the conclusion that Dick Grayson was a killer during his time as the Boy Wonder next to Batman.
What do you make of this? Do you think more revelations regarding Dick Grayson’s past with Batman will be explored? Will we learn more about some of his guilt given his time potentially as a killer? How else will Batman factor into the new season?
