Wow...no one talking about it, not a good sign. I can't believe I went from praising it two episodes ago to being utterly bored and disinterested. It feels like the only one with anything really going on is Jane/Kay. Cliff is distracting himself and doing sweet FA, Cyborg and Neg Man are rehashing old territory and Rita time traveling to only completely forget herself and make up ridiculous nonsense dances, sounds and phrases with the otherwise potentially mysterious Sisterhood of Dada comes off as filler for the blandest of pies. I get it's supposed to be something of a slow burn and I'm not averse to that as a rule but when I pause to check on something and am in no rush to get back, something is wrong. They need to step up their game if they want to keep this ship afloat.

I read a fan theory, so I think I know where this plot is going. It makes it a little more interesting as I search for clues to prove the theory right.

Doom Patrol was just greenlit for Season 4, so their ship is still watertight.

Can you link or spoiler the fan theory?  I need something to keep me interested.

That is some good news. I love the characters and actors, sometimes I think they sacrifice story or pacing in favor of highlighting the weirdness, though.

I know that this is going somewhere, but I wish this season was popping just a bit more. I am still having a blast with this show as always, I love the characters and its commitment to adapting he weirdest parts of DC comic lore, but I wish the team was together more and we had more of an idea of what is happening.

I liked Larry's scene with his son, he really does need to stop beating himself up for what happened decades ago, and his son kind of sucks now. Like Larry said, its not like he wanted any of this, he's pretty much been a victim of circumstance and of people like the Bureau of Normalcy and Niles for decades now, its not like he just fucked off and left one day to run off to Miami. 

Glad that Kay is getting out, although if she starts to really heal, what happens to Jane and the other alters?

All of this, 100%!
