Doom Patrol Season 3 Episode 5 may see the team joining hands with Madam Rogue, a.k.a. Laura, in whatever mission she is up to. Even though Niles had warned her to stay away from them, the team certainly can’t see a broken-down Laura who found out she is not a good person after all. So gear up as the time travel adventure begins, which could end up with the team lost in time forever. This all begins with Madam Rogue making her presence felt recently on the show when she ended up in the house as the team returned from the afterlife.
Initially, Madam Rogue had exactly no idea who she is and why she came here with the motive of finding Niles. It turns out she picked the wrong time as Niles was dead already. On top of that, the team wasn’t ready to believe this time travel story she came up with. But Rita did, and there was some truth here and there. So as Madam Rogue worked on recollecting her memories, the team worked on themselves but were also facing wrath for traveling in the afterlife. Here is a complete breakdown of what went down recently on the show and what we can expect from Doom Patrol Season 3 Episode 5.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Episode 4 Recap
Previously on Doom Patrol Season 3, we opened up with Madam Rogue, trying to figure out the reason she came back into the past. At this point, she doesn’t even remember her name. The only fact she remembers is she came here looking for Niles. It turns out he is dead, and she may have gone further into the past. Initially, Doom Patrol doesn’t believe her until they see her machine. It was Rita who noticed a major detail that came with a uniform. The one which another version of hers wore when she came across her back in Episode 2.
So, Rita steals one of the devices on it, and the machine fails too. This leads the team to let Cyborg help her to fix that machine. Larry finds out that he may be dying while others start collecting themselves in their way. Rita fantasizes she may be a time traveler, while Madam Rogue comes across a secret keyhole that is opened by Rita’s key. What she finds in there are movies that help her jog her memory to realize her name is Laura. But by that time, the Doom Patrol is getting dirtier and dirtier, and meantime, they find out they have turned into zombies.

Cliff, at the moment, says it’s because of the woman they met in the afterlife who puked at them. Anyway, Kipley has a mission of his own as Niles’s head is stolen by someone. The same one who turned into were-butt back in season 1 and is out for revenge. A battle between were-butts and undead Doom Patrol breaks out before the team gets the best of them and retrieves the head.
Now coming to turning the team back to normal, Niles’s head can help. He believes feeding them brains could actually help as they long for it. So it will be his head he wants to sacrifice. Before it could happen, Laura tries to talk to him. Niles agrees to give her the location of documents about her but, in turn, makes her promise she will leave Doom Patrol alone. This leads her to some harsh truth from the document while Doom Patrol gets back to normal and continues to recollect themselves.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Episode 5 Release Date & Preview
Doom Patrol Season 3 Episode 5 is releasing on October 7, 2021. It is titled “Dada Patrol”. But the official synopsis suggests that despite recollecting themselves, the team remains broken and traumatized. Still, they decided to come together to investigate weird phenomena. From this, we believe it has to do with the time-traveling which Madam Rogue, a.k.a. Laura, introduced to them in the recent episode.
Probably, Laura couldn’t handle the truth Niles had for her. That was harsh as she found out that she is dubbed as disloyal and self-serving cancer. Rita ends up finding her crying. Doom Patrol has always been home to broken, and probably everyone will agree to help Laura after all despite whatever Niles had thought of her. She might be ready to change.
