Major Plot Lines
Miss Martian, Superboy and Beast Boy travel to Mars for M’gann and Conner’s wedding. There, they find themselves amidst civil unrest stemming from racial prejudice and a murder mystery.
Ma’alefa’ak plans to purge every G’arrunn and B’lahdenn on Mars.
Three time travelers—Saturn Girl, Phantom Girl and Chameleon Boy—are tailing the trio to prevent some undisclosed tragedy. A mysterious figure tries to foil their efforts and seemingly kills his target.
Beast Boy’s mounting tragedies and traumas start to take a toll on his mental health.
Tigress is sought out by Cassandra Savage and Onyx, two League of Shadows members who profess to have defected. Both accuse one another of being a mole trying to infiltrate the Team.

An Atlantean prophecy is coming into fruition.
Rocket, Forager, and Flash travel to Supertown for negotiations with the New Gods.
I did not like this season at all other than a few serious moments, and a few unique things that they did with some increased diversity (though some felt like pandering et cetera).
Not only that, but I had to make myself watch / listen to this season, and I had to increase the speed so that I could get through episodes faster.
This season was way longer than it should have or needed to be, which made it worse.
Please end this show now or let someone else make it who can make it better.
I would rate this season a 1 – 2 out of 5, and I would not recommend watching it.
If they make another season, I might not watch it, which is sad, because my brother GC & I liked Seasons 1 & 2.
