Doom Patrol Season 4 Episode 6 Preview
In the upcoming episode, we might get to see Larry and Mr. 104 working together to stop Immortus’ evil plans of destroying the world. Since Mr. 104’s powers are apocalyptic in themselves, the two will need the help of Doom Patrol to find a solution. HBO Max has unveiled a preview for the sixth episode. You can watch it below.
In the previous episode, the team unintentionally had a de-aging spell and became teenagers again. In the next episode, the de-aging spell will be removed by Willoughby, or it will wear off by itself.
Willoughby might also return to Bunbury, leaving the members alone. The team will then be on its own and will have to think of new ways to tackle Immortus. They will be seen going after Dr. Janus first to get answers to their questions.
The Upcoming Episode will be Mid-Season Finale
Doom Patrol season 4 will be going on a break after the sixth episode, so the episode will act as a mid-season finale. The ongoing season is all set to feature 12 episodes, split into two parts. While the first part premiered on December 8, 2022, the release date for the second part has not been announced yet.
However, it is known that the show will return sometime in 2023. The previous three seasons comprised 15, 9, and 10 episodes, respectively, and none of those were divided into parts.
The official synopsis of the fourth season reads, “In the upcoming fourth season, the team unexpectedly travels to the future to find an unwelcome surprise. Faced with their imminent demise, the Doom Patrol must decide once and for all which is more important: their own happiness or the fate of the world?”
