TITANS Season 1, Episode 2 Promo Features A First Look At Hawk And Dove In Action

DC Universe has released the first promo for episode two of Titans and in case the title ("Hawk and Dove") wasn't a clue, this episode will be putting the spotlight on those two heroes. Check it out!

The first episode of Titans was unnecessarily violent but it definitely exceeded expectations, and the stage has now been set for what looks to be an enjoyable run of installments on the DC Universe streaming app.

Now, a preview of this Friday's episode has been revealed and it puts the spotlight on Hawk and Dove (and yes, there's once again quite a bit of blood here when Hawk takes down a goon).

The dynamic between them and Robin seems to be a lot of fun and it looks like there may be history there because Hawk makes a dig about the Boy Wonder teaming up with the violent vigilantes here. 

Beyond that, we don't learn much about what to expect but the synopsis for "Hawk and Dove" makes it clear that the story with Raven will also continue to develop.

Oh, and in case you missed them the first time, you can hit the "View List" button below to check out some stills from the episode. 


Hank Hall aka Hawk and Dawn Granger aka Dove are a pair of vigilantes, hoping to get out of the superhero business after shutting down one final criminal operation. When Dick arrives at their doorstep with Rachel, looking for a safe haven for the hunted child, his reappearance after many years causes strife between all three of them. Still traumatized over the death of her mother, Rachel struggles to trust Dick.  But all their differences must be put aside when a lethal Nuclear Family, sent by The Organization, is activated with the sole purpose of capturing Rachel. 



Check out some stills from "Hawk and Dove" by clicking below.
 


Say what you will about Robin and his potty mouth but DC Universe has done a great job of bringing him to life on the small screen and had he appeared in the DCEU, this suit would have worked.
 


It appears as if Hawk and Dove have interrupted Robin during one of his many beatdowns on Gotham City's crooks and the young hero seems to be spoiling for a fight with his two fellow superheroes.
 


As unnecessarily violent as this show might end up getting, it does appear as if the action scenes will be a highlight. The breaking bones and blood could prove to be a bit much as time goes on, though.
 


Another good thing about this show is the costumes. The CW has always done a pretty good job but it definitely seems as if quite a bit more money has been spent on these than what we've seen before.
 


It's been a very long time since we've seen Robin in a live-action setting and as I mentioned above, Titans has handled things well. However, his gloves being stained with blood really isn't great. 
 

 

 


I'm not sure who or what this lot is supposed to be but I'm getting serious Gotham vibes from this creepy looking family and that can't be a good thing. The question is, what exactly are they after?
 


Well, I'm guessing they're on the other side of that door for starters and are probably hunting down Raven. Given her supernatural powers, perhaps the weirdos are actually just disguised as humans. 
 

 


Dick Grayson takes out some poor thug here and while I'm not sure we needed two angles of this same shot, there's no denying that Robin looks good in action and should have an impressive set of skills. 
 


Alan Ritchson is no stranger to playing a superhero after suiting up as Aquaman in Smallville and playing Raphael in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies and it looks like he'll fit right in as Hawk.
 


This is a great shot of Hawk in action and no matter what else you say about this show, Warner Bros. deserves a lot of credit for adapting his comic book costume to the screen in such a faithful way.
 


It definitely looks like Robin takes Raven to Hawk and Dove's place to hide her, a plan which presumably doesn't work very well based on that shot of the weird looking family at their door. 
 


Well, don't these two look good together? There's been no mention of Dick Grayson having a love interest in the series but Starfire is one strong possibility unless Oracle has been cast in the show.
 

 


Aren't these two a lovely couple? With any luck, we won't get quite as much on the nose imagery as Hawk holding a dove while talking to Dove throughout the rest of the series as it's a tad cheesy.
 


Another flashback to the night Dick Grayson's parents died, their demise is clearly going to play a huge role in Robin's arc in this series as he attempts to come to terms with what happened to them.
 


More evidence mounts here that Robin will take Raven under his wing and it's interesting that that's the dynamic this show is going for rather than making them equals when they form this team.
 

 


Well, the show is clearly going to earn its R-Rating based on what we see here. I'm not sure what the significance of that tattoo can be so if you have any ideas, be sure to let us know your thoughts below.
