The Easter Eggs You Missed In Titans Season 3

Contains spoilers for the "Titans" Season 3 finale

"Titans" Season 3 had a lot for comic book fans to sink their teeth into. The entire season adapted the infamous "Under the Red Hood" storyline from the comics that sees the resurrection of Jason Todd (Curran Walters) after his death at the hands of the Joker. The only problem is that when he comes out of the Lazarus Pit, something's not quite right with him, and in the case of "Titans," he goes on a killing spree to instill fear into the hearts of Gothamites. 

Batman (Iain Glen) is M.I.A. for much of the season, so it falls onto the shoulders of Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) and the rest of the Titans to put an end to Red Hood's reign of terror. It results in plenty of thrilling spectacles, from Raven (Teagan Croft) creating a storm out of a Lazarus Pit to Tim Drake (Jay Lycurgo) laying down some hurt on Scarecrow (Vincent Kartheiser). But even the most hardcore comic book fans may not have caught every single detail the season had to offer. 

Here are some of the more well-hidden Easter eggs present in "Titans" Season 3 you may have missed the first time around.

A new batch of Robins

In the Season 3 premiere episode, Jason Todd dies, and the Titans, along with Bruce Wayne, try to pick up the pieces from his (seeming) demise. Part of this leads Dick Grayson to look into Bruce Wayne's files, where he comes across a collection of kids. When he inquires Bruce about them, he responds that they're potential recruits to become the next Robin. 

However, these aren't just any throwaway names and faces. Fans of the comic books should recognize at least a couple of them from actually taking on the Robin mantle at one point or another. Carrie Kelley is perhaps the best-known one for becoming Robin during Frank Miller's seminal "The Dark Knight Returns" storyline. Other names that hold significance include Daxton Chill, Stephanie Brown, and Duke Thomas, who all become members of the Bat-family over the run of the comics. 

Granted, the only future Robin we actually see in action is Tim Drake. But "Titans" has laid the groundwork for a cornucopia of young crimefighters to enter the mix if the creative forces behind the show desire them to come into the picture.

Harley Quinn exists in the world of Titans

When Dick goes into the Batcave for the first time, fans will likely recognize a plethora of references to the comics. Some of the most notable examples include holograms of a T-Rex and a giant coin. These have been standard fixtures in Bruce Wayne's Batcave for decades now, and it's good to see the show carrying on in that tradition. While the T-Rex takes up a good portion of the screen, there are physical items that are worth another look. 

There's a giant Joker card hidden in the background, once again hinting at the massive role the Clown Prince of Crime has had in Gotham over the years. And wherever there's Joker, you can be confident his main squeeze will be somewhere around. Harley Quinn isn't mentioned throughout Season 3 of "Titans," so it's unclear where she is or if she's still alive. But it's clear Batman wants to keep a piece of her around. On one of the pedestals, you can see what looks like Harley's signature mallet. 

Joker may be dead in this world now that Batman finally snapped and killed him after Jason's "death," but there's always a chance Harley could enter the picture at some point down the road. Perhaps she'll be on a path for vengeance with her puddin' officially put out to pasture.

A villainous team is out for blood

Another blink-and-you'll-miss-it Easter egg in the Season 3 premiere episode comes as Tim Drake bikes away. If you look at the top right-hand corner of the screen, you'll notice an advertisement for something called "Church of Blood." No, it's not a new Slayer album. 

In the comics, the Church of Blood is an antagonistic force for the Teen Titans, led by Brother Blood. The group's mission statement is to resurrect Trigon (Seamus Dever), who was the main big bad in "Titans" Season 1. Similar to the comics, the team vanquished the demon, who now resides in the crystal Raven has on her forehead. It's always possible Trigon could make a triumphant return to the land of the living, and the seeds have been planted for the Church of Blood to do so.

But it's always possible for the HBO Max series to switch things up. Trigon has already had his time in the sun with The Organization working tirelessly to have him rule the planet. It may be too similar to basically have the same plotline played out again, but who knows what the future could hold for the series?

Roy Harper says hello ...

It feels like only a matter of time until the Titans reunite with an integral member of the team, namely Roy Harper, a.k.a. Speedy. He's the sidekick of Green Arrow who eventually heads out on his own to fight crime, and he's been namechecked a couple of times on the series already. Most recently, it came during the "Season 3 finale" when Vee (Karen Robinson) reveals she works for A.R.G.U.S. and not the G.C.P.D. Barbara Gordon (Savannah Welch) asks if it's the same A.R.G.U.S. Roy Harper belongs to, and Vee confirms it is.

Given the organization's presence in the final episode, it would certainly make sense for Roy Harper to come back to the titular team at some point. Seeing how several members have gone off to have their own adventures, like Donna Troy (Conor Leslie) venturing off to Paris, there's plenty of room for someone new to fill in the gap. Roy Harper would be the perfect pick.

The one who got away

One of the final Easter eggs in Season 3 feels less like a hint of what's to come and more of a fun nod for those who have in-depth knowledge of the Batman mythos. When Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) attempts to hack into Wayne Manor's security grid, he needs the answer for "What is the name of the 'one who got away.'" Gar tries several options first, namely "Joker" and "Riddler," but Tim Drake tells him to try "Selina Kyle." It turns out to be a fortuitous turn of events, as it's the correct answer.

Most people should know Selina Kyle is the real name of long-time Batman adversary-turned-lover Catwoman. Bruce Wayne certainly seems like a lonely guy in the "Titans" universe, so perhaps it should come as no surprise that he never settled down with the one woman who truly understood him.

It's unlikely Selina Kyle will ever make a physical appearance in the show. But it's fun to think of all the adventures she had with Bruce Wayne prior to the events of the series starting.
