Young Justice Season 1, Episode 16
SUMMARY: When aliens attack, everyone dies! Or do they? Probably.
Syd: The episode starts with two Green Lanterns fighting a spaceship in space. I was just starting to think that there are too many Green Lanterns when they both get vaporized. Oh well, there are more where they came from.
Margaret: I was surprised the killed the Green Lanterns off so quickly. That surprise was quickly expounded upon as they kill not only random Green Lanterns, but all the recurring League characters. It was quite a shock.
Syd: This episode is hardcore. As soon as we get back from the theme song, we cut to Iris West-Allen’s report from the ground and people are being killed left and right. Like, you see their skeletons and everything.
Margaret: Yeah! It’s insane. Everyone is dying everywhere! Iris is in the middle of the action, as any good reporter on the ground would be. Flash and Zatara rescue her and put her on what they assume is a safe rooftop. A grateful Iris remains professional by thanking, “….The Flash” because she obviously was about to thank Barry.
Syd: It seems like Cat Grant has been promoted to anchor. Last time we saw her, she was a field reporter. It looks like, despite Kaldur’s meddling, she’s well on her way to her own media empire, then leaving the show when shooting moves to Canada.
