Doom Patrol Season 3 Plot
With the introduction of the Candlemaker, a wish-granting imaginary friend, the Sex-Men, and a time-traveler who has a clock as his head, Season 2 managed to grab a colossal audience. The season mainly focuses on the character development aspect of the show as they tried to defeat their inner demons while fighting real ones. Season 3 will mostly pick-up from where Season 2 ended. It may focus on Dorothy as she gears up to defeat Candlemaker to save her father and friends. With the characters turned into wax, Jane’s fate in the Underground unclear, and a game-changing event on the horizon, Season 2 left many loose ends, which allows Season 3 to explore further.
