This one has one of the better overarching story lines though. Possibly the best. And it was obvious that they knew they were ending because they pulled out all the stops.
They delved into the titans past to give us Beast Boy's former teammates, the Doom Patrol and their enemies, the Brotherhood of Evil. We see Beast Boy really come into his own this year and even see an episode which shows how the Titans first got together and another which holds the arrival of a much demanded founding character from the comics.
The final two episode showdown against the Brotherhood of Evil remains one of my favorite climaxes in TV animation, right up there with the end of season one of Justice League Unlimited, and of Young Justice: Invasion.
My only true complaint lies with the fact that Starfire was never truly given her own storyline. She deserved one.
Also, a caveat. The final episode, after the two episode climax, is bittersweet. A completely different tone than the rest of the season. If you want to end on a triumphant note, that is not the episode to watch. Consider watching it out of order. But if you want to see the goodbye that the creators intended, stick with it. It is a goodbye to innocence and to the Titans. Appropriate, bit like I said, bittersweet.
I think they listened. The first two episodes of this season "Homecoming Part 1 & 2" feature a fantastic score of dramatic music, which complements the guest characters: The Doom Patrol. The story shows Beast Boy's connection to his former team, and his divided loyalty between the Doom Patrol and the Titans.
Doom Patrol's enemies the Brotherhood of Evil (led by M'sieur Mallah & Madam Rouge) become the main focus of the Titans for the rest of the season, which sends them on a global quest to sign up honorary Titans galore.
In "Lightspeed", you'll see Kid Flash (voiced by Michael Rosenbaum, who voiced the adult future version of the character in Justice League/Unlimited as The Flash). Lots of other guest characters familiar to DC comics including Red Star (a retooled version of the Russian Starfire from Teen Titans original comic series #18).
This is the best season, and a great way to wrap up the series. Watch out for the surprising final episode, featuring the return of ... I won't spoil it.
