Titans star Seamus Dever opened up in a recent interview about the missing twelfth episode from the first season.
Spoilers for Titans Season 1 ahead!
The DC Universe original series Titans featured the first live-action depictions of many iconic DC characters including Trigon. The supervillain has appeared in the animated Teen Titans shows, but actor Seamus Dever brought the character to life for the first time in the second half of the show’s inaugural season. The first season of Titans was originally announced with 12 episodes, but the season ended up finishing at 11. The season finale concluded with Dick Grayson ready to serve Trigon and Seamus Dever speculates with Science Fiction why the series showrunners decided to make episode 11 the Season finale:
“They don’t tell actors very much about these things. But we shot (episode 12) and it’s awesome. I think they wanted to leave it with a cliffhanger and a good tease with these guys in peril so that we can see them emerge from it and how they struggle with it.”
DC Universe fans luckily don’t have to wait for season two of the series to revisit the universe. This February, the Titans spin-off Doom Patrol will premiere on the streaming service. The titular team of characters first appeared in episode four of Titans, though several roles have been recast for the series.

The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Richard “Dick” Grayson / Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand’r / Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven, Ryan Potter as Garfield “Gar” Logan / Beast Boy, and Seamus Dever as Trigon.
