This one picks right up from the ending of the last episode with everyone in Bialya. But HOLY CALCULON, everyone's come down with...AMNESIA!

It could have been a cliched mess, but I do like that this provided some clues into the Artemis mystery, with her not recognizing herself in her costume.

Artemis: DAD! He must have done this. Another of his stupid tests!
Kid Flash: What kind of test?
Artemis: He probably wants me to kill you.

And there was a lot of comedy thrown in with the re-re-visiting of "Why isn't anyone just whelmed?" and Artemis's "STOP TOUCHING YOURSELF!" Not too much in the way of fan service this time around, but it was still a solid episode, nonetheless.

I've seen enough. Now I can unabashedly say I love this show. All Megan had to say was "Zeta-beam radiation" and I'm hooked. And the villain of the week is Psimon. PSIMON! Psimon, everyone!! It's Psimon! All my old school nerdy knowledge of the DC Universe is being rewarded.

There was a time I probably would have easily guessed from the clues as to who Artemis' father is. My best guess now is Deathstroke.

The dialogue and characterizations get better and better. Every Young Justice character is so clearly realized and defined already, their interplay and banter is a lot of fun to listen to. Plus they still sound like kids. Well, super kids. They're a lot smarter and capable than most real kids.

Superboy turned into the classic Stan Lee-Jack Kirby Hulk in this episode. A raging brute smashing tanks in the desert. "LEAVE SUPERBOY ALONE! SUPERBOY SMASH!"

Megan might be my favorite new superhero character. I didn't even realize Miss Martian was a real DC character at first, but she's so vital and engaging, I don't know where this show would be without her.

Finally, no matter how you look at it, sending Aqualad to a Middle Eastern desert is a tactical error.

I woulda guessed that her father was actually the Sportsmaster, because the letter addressed to her last week was addressed to "Atremis Crock," who's the Sportsmaster's (real name: Crusher Crock) kid in the comics.

Just seemed like too much of a coincidence to be misdirection, really.

Oh, and from the little conference call at the end, does this mean Demona's part of The Light, now? Sure sounded like her.
