Appearing in "Stuck in the Middle With You"
Synopsis for "Stuck in the Middle With You"
Jericho's essence is still stuck inside the body of Match. The Titans bring him inside their laboratory where Vic Stone runs some tests on him. Raven tries to collect some data on the computer while Flash and Red Arrow wonder if Jericho can still be trusted. Suddenly, Match goes berserk and punches Cyborg through the wall of the lab.
The Titans scramble together and begin fighting Match. While the team's power-houses try to keep Jericho contained, Raven envelops him within her soul-self to try and exorcise Jericho's mind from Match's body. Match tries to resist, until Cyborg hits him with his sonic weapons.
The two are separated, but the Titans soon discover that Jericho was in control of Match the entire time, not the other way around. Jericho kills the lights, then leaps into another body. The Titans don't know which one of them is currently being possessed.

- Jericho has a long history of losing himself to his darker passions due to the nature of his power. His body was once corrupted by the evil of Trigon and the Souls of Azarath as revealed during the climax of the "Titans Hunt" storyline running through issues of New Titans. He later took possession of his father Deathstroke during the "A Kid's Game" storyline in the first issues of Teen Titans (Volume 3). He took possession of Match's body in Teen Titans (Volume 3) #47.
- At one point, Donna Troy says "I've had some uncomfortable experiences with heat vision and Superman doppelgangers". This is a reference to the Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day limited series where a renegade Superman Robot murdered Donna Troy with a blast of heat vision at point blank range. As per traditional comic book trope, she has since returned from the dead.
- The title to this issue, "Stuck in the Middle With You" was originally taken from the 1973 song by Stealers Wheel.
