Fractured

Fractured is the 24th episode of Teen Titans series and the 11th episode of season 2.

SynopsisEdit

During a chase with the vandal Johnny Rancid on the R-Cycle, Robin breaks his arm, the R-Cycle is wrecked, and Rancid gets away after he taunts Robin to no end. Robin blames himself for this blunder, but reluctantly admits that he is in no condition to go after Rancid anymore and decides to leave his teammates to it. Suddenly, an inter-dimensional, impish version of himself called "nosyarG kciD" (Coincidently Dick Grayson backwards) bursts out from Robin's skull. Larry (the name the Titans decide to call him out of simplicity) introduces himself and explains that he has a magic finger which can bend the rules of reality. As he is not only Robin's extradimensional counterpart, but also his biggest fan, Larry has decided to help his idol and thus come into this dimension but messed up on the way - something which happens to him quite often.

Instant urban developments

The Teen Titans don't stay for long because they are alerted to Johnny Rancid wreaking havoc downtown. While the other Titans go after him, Larry stays behind and tries to fix Robin's broken arm. When he becomes too pushy, Robin gets angry and wrestles with Larry. However, in the scuffle Robin accidentally breaks Larry's "magic finger", causing reality to become distorted. Robin and Larry are hurled into the city, which has turned into a manifestation of a preschooler's drawing, and everything else goes haywire (especially Beast Boy's mouth). The only place that looks normal is Titans Tower, where Larry's power is bursting from.

After many difficulties, the Titans make it back to the Tower's roof, but Johnny Rancid also appears and jumps into the power surge before the Titans can stop him, turning into a demonic version of himself and transforming Jump City into a macabre version of itself. The Titans chase after him, but Rancid manages to disable them by bending reality to his own liking and escapes into the city. Robin is frustrated because he thinks he will mess up yet again, but Larry helps him recover his confidence by saying "You're my hero because you never give up."

Rancid is wreaking havoc in the city when Robin suddenly appears on his R-Cycle, with Larry having granted it the ability to fly with what little power he can get out of his finger. Robin and Larry now taunt Johnny Rancid, who becomes so angry that he loses control of himself. Robin kicks him off his bike, and Larry recovers his powers from the villain; the city returns to normal, Rancid is stripped of his powers and defeated.

Just before Larry departs again, Robin decides to show his gratitude by allowing him to fix his arm. Unexpectedly, Larry succeeds, but in turn Robin now finds himself stranded in another dimension ...

TriviaEdit

  • This episode's title song is sung by Puffy AmiYumi producer Toshiro Kai. The passing of Larry on the bike is also reminiscent of the title sequence of each episode from the 60s Batman series where Yvonne Craig guest-starred as Batgirl.
  • Johnny's Demon-like form looks like Akuma from the games series Street Fighter.
  • Larry's real name (Nosyarg Kcid) is Dick Grayson spelled backwards.
  • This episode is the first time we ever hear Starfire's voice use a contraction. When Cyborg takes her mouth to talk, he says "Ya'll" in Starfire's voice.

GoofsEdit

  • Since Robin's right arm was fractured, he has been wearing a cast. In multiple scenes, both arms are in their regular gloves and no cast is present.
