    She was into him in her first episode, and in a later episode, suggested M'Gann date Kaldur. Or Wally. All I remember is that the girls were trying to dissuade each other from dating Conner.

    But yeah, they haven't really touched on it for a while, which is a little weird.
    In all likelihood she probably does have feelings for Superboy, but I honestly don't remember any indication that she liked him in any previous episodes...or perhaps I merely forgot said moments because they were so brief.

    Either way, color me disappointed as it's such a tired cliche, especially as this series has continued to surprise me with its more cerebral twists (Ms Martian's psychic freak-out).

    They also brought up all the possible theories for the mole, which means that it won't end up being any of them.

    Therefore, I say Aqualad is the mole.

    Not really a YJ spoiler but here's some YJ spoiler talk
    Anyone else love shazam's writing in YJ? I think it's great. They really play on how he's a kid and I really like everyone's reactions around him since they don't' know he's a kid. In JLU he was too good at acting like an adult and only slipped up once or twice before the reveal. Here he barely hides it at all and I like the contrast of an adult looking person acting like a kid

    The Light is heavily loaded with Batman villains, including mindfucking expert Hugo Strange. Robin might be a Manchurian Candidate.

    I'm guessing it's Superboy, although he probably doesn't know it. He's part Genome, and in the pilot those things were crazy psychic, so chances are there's another Genome seeing everything he does. Plus Superboy being the mole fits in with the current DC Universe comic plotlines.

    I still think it's Superboy. It's pretty much they only option they have without writing off a cast member. But, then again, they like changing things up, so maybe they are planning on writing one off (or one more if the rumor of one of htem dying is true). My money's still on Superboy though.

    Have they confirmed which Robin it is? Judging by his skillset, I'm assuming Tim Drake, but judging by the ages of some of the other characters it could be Dick Grayson.

    Just to add to things.
    What if the character doesn't even know they're already working for the Light? One of them might have been kidnapped earlier, say Robin by Ra's and given a good mind job and sent back not knowing anything happened yet every so often doing reports. Can see that happening. That or maybe the Light has info on one of the members that they think will either turn or force them to do their bidding, the Aqualad situation fits this.

    I'm not so sure about that. I recall that thought came out of this preview video (about two minutes in).

    The exact wording was: "We're dealing with life and death stuff - literally. I mean, this is a show where... umm, not everyone's gonna' survive." Which fans took from presented context to mean "not everyone on the team will survive," but that wasn't what was actually stated.

    No need to spoiler tag, they straight up tell you he's Dick Grayson in one episode (in which he's referred to as such by Barbara...yes, that Barbara.

    Also, any revelation that ends with "Batman" is never crazy, because there's nothing Batman isn't capable of.

    I went to check IMDB to see who sounds so much like Rob Lowe, but it turns out it's actually Rob Lowe. Huh.

    Also, Superboy is Nolan North, M'Gann is Winnie from the Wonder Years, Batman is the same guy who played Admiral Pike in the latest Star Trek movie along with the Batman in Under the Red Hood and Green Arrow is Wash from Firefly.

    Nolan North still doesn't have as many roles in Young Justice as Kevin Michael Richardson. I think I counted him with four in one episode.
    It was the New Gods one. He was MM, Ugly, one of the New Gods, and someone else.

    With the Young Justice guys talking about possible deaths, I wonder if they might do a story where Zatara dies.

    Adventure Time has gotten pretty dark with these past two episodes. Last episode we saw a 28-Days Later-esque situation unfolding. This time? Jake is coerced into taking a hit on Wild Berry Princess by the Guild of Assassins?

    Can't wait for the Adventure Time comic book.
