Doom Patrol Season 2 Episode 2 and Episode 3 Recap
In the previous episode of DC Universe’s Doom Patrol, Larry’s son Gary had died, and the rest of the gang were back to size. In Doom Patrol Season 2 Episode 2, Larry went to Gary’s funeral, while the others visited Dr. Tyme, and in Doom Patrol Season 2 Episode 3, Red Jack, who Niles encountered as a boy, took Larry.
Since Niles had given his amulet to Willoughby in exchange for restoring everyone back to size, he needed something else to extend his life. He sent Cliff, Jane, and Rita back to 1980 where Dr. Tyme existed in disco roller rink. He possessed a time-manipulating material called continuinium, which turned out to be his brain. All hell broke loose as the historical figures with Dr. Tyme attacked and went after the brain. He expelled them from his time capsule roller rink.
Larry attended Gary’s funeral, presided over by his other son, Paul. He revealed who he was to Paul, who invited Larry over to the reception at Gary’s house. Larry couldn’t go in, but the negative spirit brought him to Gary’s barn full of memories.
When he left, a swarm of butterflies overtook him. Red Jack, a.k.a. Jack the Ripper, had kidnapped Larry and strung him up. When he was a boy, Niles had encountered Red Jack, who was using Larry to lure Niles back. In the end, Niles stabbed Red Jack, and Rita and Larry freed all the butterflies, Red Jack’s victims.
Vic had taken off and ended up in a trauma support group. They required him to turn off his camera, and he did so reluctantly as it made him vulnerable. Ronnie, a veteran and leader of the support group, got mugged afterwards, and though she was able to take care of herself, Vic wanted to alert the police. She implored him not to, as she recognized that the mugger was a kid in a terrible situation. Vic called off the police.
Ronnie canceled support group without telling Vic. They slept together, and it was the first time for him since becoming Cyborg. He was unsure of how he would look to her. Ronnie revealed burn scars on her body. Afterwards, she left him with a grisly photo from her past.
Cliff went to Florida with Jane to see his daughter, Clara. He inelegantly explained to her that he was her father. She was having a baby shower that day and refused to let him in. Clara called the cops on him as he wrecked the van.
Jane fell asleep and ended up in the Underground. The intervention was now underway. In the past, we saw when Miranda, a previous primary who had gone in the well, took over Kay. Her mother had attempted to exorcise Kay. At the end of it, Jane found herself locked up in the Underground.
