"I See You" is the fifth episode of the second season of Teen Titans Go!, and the 57th overall episode of the series
The episode starts off with Beast Boy, Cyborg and Starfire playing video games while Raven is reading, but suddenly Robin arrives saying that crime is afoot and the only way to stop them is by a stakeout. Cyborg makes a small a joke out of Robin's declaration by saying, "I thought crime was a leg, bro!" Then Beast Boy adds on to the joke by saying: "No Dude! if crime was anything, it would be a hand!" When Starfire is wondering the meaning of stakeout, Cyborg claims its the best way to fight crime by finding their main secrets and then he starts off with him and Beast Boy singing the Stakeout song. Which Robin tells them that they are bad at stakeouts as an example to a restaurant where Brother Blood is eating a sandwich while Cyborg and Beast Boy were mocking him that they see him. Robin denies their stakeouts and wants to be alone with Starfire as Robin's stakeout crime will be only an attempt for a kiss from Starfire as they left the Tower. Believing that Beast Boy and Cyborg are bad at stakeouts, Raven agrees with that statement and everything else than that as she leaves to her room. Then Cyborg and Beast Boy decides to do a stakeout on Raven.
Meanwhile, in the T-Car, Robin lists the three rules of a stakeout; Rule 1: Locate a den of criminal activity, Starfire wants to know what kind of crimes will happen and Robin answers crimes of passion. He lists Rule 2 as Indirect observation as he wants her to look in his eyes. He lists Rule 3: as concealment as he was too shy to repeat "I love you". He then tells Starfire to look into his eyes then he asks if she sees a house with a fence with 2.5 kids, a yard and dinner parties on the weekends with their titans friends which were Raven and Beast Boy. But she denied what she saw, instead she seeks out a shiny diamond hidden in the bushes. Without any knowledge if its a clue or not Robin throws it away.
Back at the Tower, Raven opens her diary to write but then her hand started to shake and turns red as she closed her book immediately. after being shocked she said to herself: "Oh no, its happening again!" and she left her room. Cyborg and Beast Boy were hiding under her bed and got out to reach for the diary as Cyborg claims it may contain a secret crush for Beast Boy even though it was embarrassing for both of them. After opening her book, the words popped in Beast Boy's mouth leading to Cyborg saying he had it upside down but when he opened it by himself a giant laser light of word bees were spreading around the room.
While Starfire never knew the steakhouse was meant for stakeouts, Robin claims its also for make outs. Still confusing, Starfire admits that she is learning so much from Robin but also wondering if she wasn't breaking the rule number 3. Robin's theory is called hiding in plain sight to work together. Starfire confirms this, but says that she must "put on her face". Robin becomes excited as he was expecting a kiss, instead Starfire comes out wearing a mask of an old person called Jeff and ready to roll again with Robin as they found another diamond hidden in a bush. Back at the Tower, Beast Boy and Cyborg are sitting gloomily for they haven't found anything related to Raven's secret crush, as they started to practice some few stakeouts before the final attempt. At a dumpster, Starfire finds another diamond as she hears something behind her. She asks Robin did if he see that the crime is afoot. Then Starfire opens the door and it's Dr. Light. He welcomes Robin and Jeff into his lair to show them the crystal chandeliers he was making. His hobby turned to be a real secret plan to destroy the city using the chandeliers death rays after Jeff revealed it by mistake but eventually she defeats Dr. Light, making a "The Pain of Defeat" to fall and crash on him.
Meanwhile at the Tower, Raven cannot let the world see her true demonic form, which is revealed after taking her hood off. She is unaware that Cyborg and Beast Boy were hiding under Raven's bed ready to stakeout her secret. Demonic Raven casts a spell in order to cleanse herself of darkness as she successfully turned back to normal in a white cloak this time, unaware that Beast Boy and Cyborg get sucked up in the portal hole too along with millions of souls surrounded by her spell. Both Titans landed in the middle of nowhere as Cyborg snaps a photo of Raven's secret but it was a picture of Beast Boy screaming, still they think she has a crush on Beast Boy as they celebrate their victory as stakeout kings. On the other hand, Starfire admits her first stakeout was great together with Robin as he is also proud of her for tracking Dr. Light. Starfire then says that he forgot one thing, You don't mess with the Jeff! With saying this she puts on her Jeff mask.
