So, I rewatched the series for the third time during this period of time and I noticed something in the episode "Haunted".
It is regarded one of the best written episodes of the entire series. It depicted mental illnesses and result of obsession in a really beautiful way and also showed that with the help of supportive friends, family member and people, you can overcome any type of mental issue which is slowly killing you from the inside.
Back to my point, the ones who watched episode, did you guys notice one thing?
Slade's hallucination spoke and did only the the things Robin remembered or paid attention to.
Like the places where he said he would place the bombs were the places where Robin paid more attention to.
That means Slade's hallucination, revealed 2 important things from Robin's mind as well.
First of the "You always knew it was going to end this way". That means in one of his mind's deepest fears was that Slade would over power him and almost kill him. You see, when Slade says it, Robin seems to be a bit surprised as he knew that subconsciously, though it's not true.
Second of being, "every dark corner" because it was Robin's fear that wherever it's hideous that's the place Slade resides. Robin without questioning that how did Slade return in the first place relentlessly battles him. Thus making Slade's sentence true that neither will Slade nor Robin would stop to finish each other.
Another thing, in this episode, Robin could have died if he didn't turn on the lights on time, he was really close to dying. We don't see this brutality in animated shows everyday.
This episode not only did reveal Robin being Dick Grayson but also the fact that deep down inside, Robin is scared by Slade.
Despite being heroic and brave and having or showing no weaknesses, when pushed to the limit, Robin can get scared and beg for mercy.
This episode revealed alot of his inner thoughts and fears.
This episode also revealed another similarity between the two. The lust and goal of killing each other till the end.
Alot of more is discovered by me in this particular episode and this series only. But mentioning them all in one post will make this post too long😅.
So, I shall post them each separately.
So, what do you guys think?
