Titans has shown Red Hood as a minion for Scarecrow, but the show has just set up the possibility of a different style of Red Hood for the future.
Warning: Contains spoilers for Titans episode 10.
In Titans season 3, episode 10, “Troubled Water,” Scarecrow’s plan opens up a possibility for Jason Todd to return in season 4 as a more comic accurate Red Hood. Jason Todd (Curran Walters), alongside Scarecrow (Vincent Kartheiser), has been a central villain for much of season 3, and the season could end with his death. However, there are several hints throughout the season that there are more stories Titans wants to tell with the character, and those might lean into the comics more.
Titans season 3 has shown that Scarecrow created Red Hood with the intention of using Jason as a puppet in his schemes. Jason’s strong personality and distaste for authority (as was well-established in the previous seasons) causes certain issues for Crane as he goes rogue and attempts to get back in with the Titans, seeking their forgiveness. Despite this, Red Hood has so far been shown to conduct extremely villainous acts without remorse in the moment, notably the murder of Hank Hall (Alan Ritchson) as well as many civilians.
