We discuss predictions for the HBO Max series Doom Patrol season 4, episode 5, and include the release date and where to watch online.

“Casey Patrol” detours from the Doom Patrol and their apocalypse-preventing antics. In episode 4, the focus is very much on Dorothy (Abi Monterey), who is still avoiding the real world by living in a fantasy reality created by Danny the Street (Lex Lang) and her comic books. Her world is invaded by a villainous character pulled straight from a comic book she is reading, and she, in turn, summons a superhero called Casey Brinke to fight it. This episode feels like filler, giving screen time to many secondary characters. They are given sweet and uplifting scenes, but it is hard to connect with these new and uninspiring characters. Here’s what happened in season 4, episode four of Doom Patrol:

  • Dorothy tells the story of how she came to own her father’s necklace. It’s a special talisman that can provide the owner with immortality. She wears the necklace, which reminds her of her dead father.
  • Dorothy is still grieving the death and hides out in her room. Maura Lee tries to comfort her friend, but she wants to be alone. While they chat, their fantasy realm is attacked by robotic flies that turn the villagers into zombie robots.
  • Dorothy summons Casey from her comic books to help defeat this new evil, but this also means the villainous Torminox is also on the prowl. Casey fights these possessed troops, but Dorothy begs that she doesn’t kill them, as they are still her friends.
  • Maura tells Casey that she is a fictional character and Dorothy explains her backstory. Casey’s father became Torminox in a lab accident and she has fought him ever since.
  • Torminox shrinks Danny the Street and all their friends into a box. He asks for the necklace in exchange for the friends. Casey hesitates and struggles to fight her dad this time. Dorothy refuses and summons the Candlemaker to attack the villain.
  • Casey, Dorothy, and Maura escape, while the Candlemaker fights Torminox. Casey refuses to fight, admitting that she fears her father will die if she kills Torminox this time around. Maura thinks there might be a way to get her father back though.
  • Torminox returns, having shrunk the Candlemaker into a box as well. He asks again for the necklace. Dorothy says that it is all she has left of her father. They try to talk him around. Casey shows him a mural of a happy memory. The villain takes the necklace anyway and leaves, unaffected by their pleas.
  • All returns back to normal. Maura realizes that they need to leave this fantasy world and try to build their own safe havens in reality.
  • Casey hopes she can get her father back and decides to leave this fantasy realm with Dorothy. They head for Cloverton and new adventures.
  • Dr. Janus and Torminox hand over their necklaces to the comic book creator. He says that Immortus will rise.
