Doom Patrol Season 2 Episode 8 Recap
In the previous episode of DC Universe’s Doom Patrol, the Doom Patrol survived a scant infestation, and Clara arrived at the manor. In Doom Patrol Season 2 Episode 8, Jane went in search for Kay’s stuffed animal, Rita and Vic teamed up, and Dorothy hit puberty.
While in the Underground, Jane questioned the Alters’ disappearances, and Miranda suggested that Scarlet Harlot and Lucy Fugue moved on because Kay was beginning to heal. Kay wanted Harry, her favorite stuffed animal. She had lost it in the real well that her abusive father forced her to stay in as punishment.
Jane was determined to retrieve Harry for Kay and brought Larry with her. She found the stuffed animal hidden with a note from Miranda to the father. She had left it for him before climbing out of the well herself. Back in the Underground, Jane decided to fall in line with Miranda after all and gave Harry to her to give to Kay. Miranda threw both Harry and Jane in the Underground well.
