|1||"Pilot"||Glen Winter||Jeremy Carver||February 15, 2019 (2019-02-15)||T50.10101|
|In Paraguay 1948, Eric Morden takes part in an experiment run by former Nazi scientists which transforms him into a metahuman. In Florida 1988, NASCAR driver Clifford Steele is in a car crash, but is saved by Dr. Niles Caulder, who transfers his brain into a robotic body seven years later. Also living with Caulder are Larry Trainor, a former United States Air Force test pilot who was exposed to negative energy in 1961, and Rita Farr, a 1950s actress who was exposed to a toxin that turned her into plastic while filming in South Africa. In the present, the group have lived together for many years in "Doom Manor" with "Crazy Jane", a woman with 64 superpowered personalities. Jane convinces the others to go into the nearby town of Cloverton, Ohio while Caulder is away. Rita becomes upset and turns elastic, unintentionally wreaking havoc until Cliff stops her. Caulder urges them to flee with him, as their actions will attract the enemies he has been hiding from. He, Jane, Rita and Larry leave, but they return to help Cliff protect the town. Caulder is confronted by Morden, who opens a vortex in front of the team.|
|2||"Donkey Patrol"||Dermott Downs||Neil Reynolds & Shoshana Sachi||February 22, 2019 (2019-02-22)||T50.10102|
|Morden takes Caulder into the vortex, and Jane follows, after which the vortex devours Cloverton. Realizing the futility of trying to live in the regular world, Rita retires to the Manor to wait for Caulder's return, and Larry tries to leave town, but the negative energy being inside him will not let him. Victor "Vic" Stone, a half-man, half-machine friend of Caulder's and Detroit's well known superhero Cyborg, sees news footage about the destruction of Cloverton, and travels there to investigate. Morden's donkey spits out Jane, who is rapidly cycling through personalities. Rita begrudgingly agrees to go into the gateway in the donkey's mouth, and Larry and Vic are sucked in as well. On the other side, Morden tortures them with fantasies to thwart their search for Caulder, but Larry's energy being intervenes and the team, as well as the entire town of Cloverton, are spit back out.|
