Synopsis for "Breaking the Rules"
Jericho has taken possession of his father Deathstroke's body. He is determined to stop this new group of Teen Titans from staying together or else there will only be more death. But something about Deathstroke's psyche is driving Jericho insane. Cyborg and Beast Boy try to stop him, but he hurls Deathstroke's sword through Cyborg's robotic eye and shoots Beast Boy.
Elsewhere, Raven is running through the woods. A group of hooded men is following her and shoots her in the back with something.
Impulse is in the hospital undergoing surgery to replace the kneecap that was shot off by Deathstroke. Bart heals at super-speed and then takes off for the San Francisco Library. Robin, Superboy and Wonder Girl track him down and find that he is reading every book in the entire library at once. While there, the image of Ares appears before Wonder Girl in a pane of glass. He gives her a gift, the golden lasso of Ares.
Suddenly, Deathstroke breaks in and begins fighting the Titans. Robin and he are about to throw down one-on-one when Bart appears ready for action. He is no longer dressed in the red and white costume of Impulse. He is now – Kid Flash!
