[S3E2] Red Hood
Almost immediately that is the case, as a woman dons a red hood and blows up four people. After she is taken in, it is very clear that she is being made to do this. The Joker used to wear a red hood when he first started out, so it is thought maybe they are connected. The woman delivers a note that is on the back of a book page asking to speak with Nightwing. When he shows up she refuses to talk, but shows a phone number that is carved into her arm.
[S3E2] Red Hood
Well, who better to show than our two lovebirds. Hawk and Dove show up at Bird Street and notice a robbery underway. On top of that, everyone in attendance is wearing red hoods. Dick shows up at the crime scene, calling off Barbara and deciding to go in himself with the Titans.
At the end of the episode "Homecoming - Part 2", Red X is among the many recruits of the Brotherhood of Evil, joining forces with the Brain in order to destroy the Titans and their allies. Later in "Revved Up", he and many of the other villains participate in a race for Robin's most prized possession, organized by Ding Dong Daddy. However, when Robin saves his life, X returns the favor by attacking and disabling his fellow Brotherhood members and their vehicles. When Gizmo angrily demands "Whose side are you on, barf-brain?!", X simply answers "Mine!", before destroying Gizmo's own vehicle. He is not present at the final battle between the Brotherhood and the Titans.
Barbara calls Dick to assist with a bank robbery involving red hoods. Dick explains to Barbara that the robbers are just parents of kidnapped kids and convinces her to call off the police so the Titans can defuse the situation. While Hawk, Dove, Starfire, and Nightwing enter the bank, Gar and Connor search for the missing kids. They find the kids, but also their parents. The robbers in the bank are actual criminals and set off non-lethal explosives in order to escape. After they escape, Barbara tells Dick that protecting Gotham is a police matter. She could no longer trust the Titans.
The Red Hood origins prior to Jason are teased throughout the episode. When Ann Williams dons the red hood before blowing up the ATM, Dick notes that Joker wore a red hood at the beginning of his career. Evoking the story from The Killing Joke, Dick believes there is a copycat Joker. While they are not adapting that particular storyline, it is a great nod to the comics.
