Synopsis for "First Blood"
The new Brother Blood has captured Raven's new corporeal form and is holding hostage inside of his temple. He plans on using her as a means of increasing his own power.
Back at Titans Tower, Cassie learns that a strange epidemic has been affecting all of the fortunetellers in the Bay area. She wants the Titans to come with her to check it out. Robin unveils his very own Batmobile. Kid Flash begs him to let him test drive it and they go burning out of the parking garage. But Bart guns the car too quickly and they end up overturning near the hospital.
Meanwhile, Superboy is in his room doing homework when he notices that Krypto is acting agitated. Krypto flies outside and begins rooting through Starfire's garden. Superboy tries to get him to stop before Starfire finds out, but he is too late. She comes upon them and reads Superboy the riot act (in Tamaranian no doubt).
In Phoenix Arizona, Deathstroke and his daughter the Ravager break into one of Brother Blood's temples. They are trying to find information concerning the disappearance of Jericho. Rose slaughters one of the priests.
At St. Luke's hospital, the other Titans visit Dr. Rovin (the surgeon who worked on Bart's kneecap). He shows them the ward where all of the comatose fortunetellers are convalescing. Beast Boy notices that a dark shroud similar to that used by Raven hangs above all of them. Simultaneously, all of the patients awakens and scream in unison, "Teen Titans!" There is a great expulsion of energy and the Titans are blown backwards.
