Young Justice Re(af)Watch Season 2 Episode 20 Endgame

Now that season 3 is on its way it’s the best time to rewatch the show, preferably on the DC Universe streaming service if you’re in America as that helps support the show directly and hopefully get us more than just season 3. This Re(af)Watch series is not quite a review, more of an opinion piece about each episode as I rewatch them. Covering all 46 episodes of the show’s first 2 seasons, and maybe more. Continuing on with season 2 episode 20 Endgame

Written by: Kevin Hopps
Directed by: Doug Murphy

Episode synopsis: The Justice League get declared innocent at their Rimbor trial, thanks to the evidence gathered by the Team and some dubious negotiating by Conner and M’gann. Meanwhile the rest of the Team are confronting Black Beetle on the Reach mothership. Beetle is defeated but he has already implemented their plan for Earth’s destruction. Twenty bombs set to disrupt Earth’s magnetic field and doom the planet. With some assistance by Lex Luthor they devise a counter measure and with the entire Team and League’s help they stop all the bombs. All but one. Flash, Impulse, and Kid Flash race against it, draining it of it’s energy, but Kid Flash is not fast enough, taking the energy into himself, and he “ceases.” Vandal Savage takes the War World to Rimbor and declares Earth off limits to alien invaders. The Team mourns for Wally, as Impulse takes on the Kid Flash mantle in his honour and Artemis returns as a hero but as Tigress this time. For all they’ve accomplished the Team now operates out of the Watchtower side-by-side with the League. And on the planet Apokolips Vandal Savage meets with his partner from the very beginning of the series, Darkseid.

They are both shot by Deathstroke, but Kaldur gets the last laugh as he plays a holo-recording exposing The Light’s manipulations of the Reach. Breaking their alliance. But their deaths were just a ruse and Deathstroke was really Miss Martian in disguise, with the Team ready to strike and attempt to capture them all. Vandal Savage and Black Beetle manage to get away, with Vandal stealing the War World and heading off into space, while Black Beetle plans on destroying the Earth to cover the Reach’s tracks.
