Young Justice Season 2, Episode 20
SUMMARY: While the Justice League are exonerated and set to return to Earth, The Team, with a little help from Lex Luthor, races to deactivate the Reach’s devices that have been set to destroy the world.
Syd: We start our finale on Rimbor, where the Justice League’s trial is concluding. The judge is very unsubtly suggesting that they bribe him, but Icon either doesn’t understand or refuses to do so. As a result, the League is found guilty.
Margaret: The judge has clearly made the point multiple times that he’s wanting a bribe. It’s definitely a corrupt court system and this is a point of contention with the Justice League. The Light has provided their bribe, the Justice League refuses on principle. It’s weird to me, though, that they don’t bring it up. It’s clear all sides know what’s going on and what’s being expected. This seems ripe for a big “No you’re out of order, this whole court is out of order!” sort of moment.
Syd: Maybe that would be impolite? I don’t know, it seems like that’s what would have happened if the Justice League were the protagonists of this series. Instead, they need to be rescued.
