Of all the hero shows, it seems the least changed in the new world. Crisis is referred to in the “previously on” recap, but that’s close to it, and there are no substantial changes noted. While I love the team up concept, I almost think they should have left “Earth BL” or whatever we’re calling that one off on its own.
I’m finding the Harley Quinn show uneven. They do some great ideas and clever twists, and then do some kind of weak and obvious material. This episode, oddly mixed both extremes.
The characters, and viewers, learn more about the new, post-Crisis world as more ripples and changes become apparent. Supergirl and her friends (and some enemies) are trying to navigate their new reality, and the differences range from confusing to sickening.
While it’s often simply an overused, hyperbolic phrase, in this case it’s true: after the Crisis, things will never be the same. The first stop for the shows’ various returns is Gotham City, where Batwoman’s episode has an interesting title: “How Queer Everything Is Today!”
Several plots come together for this episode of Harley Quinn. We get the return of a character I thought had been introduced as a joke, Harley’s ongoing obsession with impressing the Legion of Doom, a very obscure Justice League character, and more developments with Ivy’s love life.
Part four of the Crisis on Infinite Earths featured the death (again) of Oliver Queen and a huge battle with the Anti-Monitor. The world was saved, and it seemed like everything was wrapped up. So why is there a part five?
The insanity (and what else would you expect) of Harley Quinn’s first season continues. The gang has relocated to the Abandoned Mall of Villainy, and are still trying to get the attention Harley feels is their due.
