or get as kid-y as grimdark as Young Justice, but the series sits comfortably between series like that, tonally, all the while never wandering into the R-rated realm that’s common in many other Warner Bros. Animation projects.
Season 3 of Young Justice really shifts from junior grimdark to the harder R for violence seen in some direct-to-disc streaming.
Especially with the many bloody deaths of Halo and the maiming of Vic Stone…

In conversation with TV Line, Evil co-executive producer Robert King promised the acidic goop Kristen released last week is entirely metaphorical.
It’s partly a joke because it’s partly Alien, the movie. It was supposed to be like the acid that comes out, and it burns through everything. In fact, at the end credits, we were going to do one thing where you’re in China, the Great Wall, and it burns through an upside-down Great Wall, and it just felt like, no. [Laughs]
There’s three ways the supernatural happens on our show. One way is that it’s in a vision. The other way is, it’s metaphor. And the third way is it’s [Kristen], usually with a bad medication, and seeing things that aren’t there. I would put that in the world of metaphor.
There’s something going on with [Kristen], the way she’s using sex that makes it burn right through her kitchen into her basement. I mean, makes me laugh even saying that! But yes, I have a feeling that will be a weird one, because it doesn’t seem to come back. We had a lot of debate about it… Anyway, it feels sometimes like the show nudges its way toward some kind of metaphor that you want to grab not as literally, but… it sets a tone. I would put that in the world of “sets a tone”.
