Young Justice Re(af)Watch Episode 23 Insecurity

Now that Netflix has uploaded season 2 of Young Justice it’s the best time to rewatch the series, especially as doing so might mean Netflix picking the show up for a third season. (Though if you live in the UK like me you have to watch it through Amazon Prime and just share around posts about it). 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, and hopefully any beyond that. Continuing on with episode 23, Insecurity.

Episode synopsis: Artemis’ day has gone from great, to bad, to terrible, to evil supervillain dad coming to pay her a visit. Red Arrow has joined the Team to continue his mole hunt, and his first mission has them tracking Sportsmaster to find out what he’s up to. He’s managed to sneak Professor Ivo out of prison, without anyone noticing, and they meet up with The Brain and Klarion to perform some mystic-techo-whodo on the alien sea creature sample they stole. While the Team’s tracking Sportsmaster Artemis gets in a fight with Cheshire, and she plants a tracker on her but gives the Team a decoy. But Red Arrow put a tracker on her also, suspecting she’s the mole. The bad guys all escape, Wally and Red Arrow chew out Artemis over her actions, and then Sportsmaster visits her at night to tempt her to join his side. And there was a B-plot involving the Team members left behind at the Cave going into Red Tornado’s room and finding out he’s making an android body so he can have a human life.

In it he finds the Superclone, labelled Project Match, and awakens him. Match is unstable and attacks Conner, displaying superpowers Conner doesn’t have. He beats Conner into unconsciousness and then vanishes. When he wakes up Luthor tells him Match is fully Kryptonian, while he is only half with the other half being human. Luthor then gives him patches called ‘shields’ that switch off the human half so he can fully use his suppressed Kryptonian powers. He finds Match in a secret Genomorph city they were building so they could live without human oppression. He and Match fight again, forcing Conner to use one of the “Shields” to win.
