Young Justice Re(af)Watch Announcement

If you haven’t been following me on Twitter for this past week here’s the low-down my current situation. I’ve got the flu and haven’t been able to work on any blog posts this past week, so I won’t be able to make Young Justice season 2 posts until I’m feeling better. I’m sorry to have to delay the Re(af)Watch but these things happen, it’s just lucky this didn’t happen in the middle of season 1.

I’ll post when things get back on track, but rest assured you won’t have to wait five years to get season 2.

Young Justice Re(af)Watch Episode 26 Auld Acquaintance

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 26, Auld Acquaintance.

Episode synopsis: Red Arrow is being hunted by the Justice League, the Team get told by Batman of him being the mole and that his efforts to control the League with Starro-Tech failed. But they find Red Tornado trying to infect them when Batman leaves. Searching for answers they go after Red Arrow and put Tornado in his civilian android body of John Smith. They find out that Savage controls the League and that Red Arrow has been a clone this whole time, programmed in infiltrate the League. The Team devise a way to beat the Starro-Tech and strike back against Savage. They cure all of the League and drive Savage and Klarion off the Watchtower. The day is saved, but questions remain over where the real Roy Harper is, where Savage sent the League for 16 hours, and what he had them do.
