Inter-dimensional portals. A battle with an army made of unsent letters. A singing horse head. Cyborg’s inflated ego. Our examination of the show, Doom Patrol, moves forward with one of the oddest episodes yet! Brimming with strong references and connections to the printed comic, “Cult Patrol” introduces us to a new threat: The Cult of the Unwritten Book. Back at Doom Manor, the frazzled team of anti-heroes gear up to defend the universe (and its 37 known dimensions, according to Cyborg) from an imminent apocalypse arriving in the form of a disillusioned teen. They quite literally need to prevent the world from ending. As the risk heightens, each character exemplifies realistic ways of dealing with intense loss and trauma ranging from self-preservation, narcissistic authoritarianism, escaping/avoiding, and giving up. The group struggles to stay on the same page, but they’re falling apart. Is Rita correct in saying that the world is a “beautiful, horrible place” worth saving? It’s not as good as Dexter, but we have a great time discussing it anyway!
